Happy midcentury

I have a fantastic makeover to share with you today sent in by the folks at Indiana-based Susan Yeley Interiors. Let me start right off the bat with some before photos. From totally boring.....

...to totally awesome with a midcentury vibe!! Here's the scoop: This small midcentury home south of campus has great bones but lacked vibrancy—a je ne sais quoi that the clients were searching to savoir once and for all. SYI worked with them to nail down a design direction and furniture plan, and they decided to invest in the big-impact items first: built-ins and lighting and a fresh paint job that included a beautiful deep blue-green line around the windows. The vintage rug was an Etsy score at an awesome price, but only after the client spent months scouring options and sources online that matched the vision and dimensions of the plan. A good year later, the West Elm sofa went on sale, so the client took advantage; some time after that, they painted the kitchen, created the drop zone / bench area, and rounded out the room with occasional tables and accessories.

Amazing library and the whole living room looks so cozy, light and inviting.

I love everything. Who is that charming little boy in the "before" pictures?
