{PROJECT REVEAL} TOWNHOUSE TURNAROUND – COMFY TO CHIC!

We are excited to feature our designer Brittany Meidinger’s townhouse transformation in this month’s blog! Here's what Brittany had to share about this project: This latest project was done for my client, Becky, who recently moved into this townhome. Her goal was to make it more unique to her taste by incorporating shades of gray, glam and vintage pieces. She wanted to create a feminine space that is both comfortable for her and her dogs as well as a great spot for entertaining. Becky was a dream to work with! She rarely questioned my ideas or direction. Becky and I developed a great friendship as we created a space unique to her. I really do get the most joy from meeting and working with my clients. Becky was no exception! We decided the design direction would be an eclectic mix of vintage, rustic & glam. Although we did this project all at one time, we wanted it to feel as though it was collected over time. Becky had several existing vintage pieces we incorporated in the new design. I love the challenge of working with items that a client loves and has meaning to them! Living Room Before: Living Room After: Lighter & Brighter Living Room The first thing we did was re-paint the yellow walls! We gave the entire room a refresh just by adding a soft warm gray paint color to the walls (Requisite Gray, Sherwin Williams). This gave us a beautiful neutral space to work our magic in!   We replaced the carpet with dark hardwood flooring. This opens up the space and provides a beautiful rich warm tone to the room. Now it was time to dress our [...]

{DESIGNER PROFILE} KELSEY FEATURES A BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR REFRESH VS. REMODEL

Meet our Designer Kelsey Gray! Kelsey has been with Interior Impressions for 3 years.  We are thrilled to feature Kelsey and one of her current projects in this month’s blog! Kelsey, where did you grow up? I was born in St Paul and grew up in Arden Hills How many siblings do you have? I have one older sister, Jena Are you married or single?  Children? I am single and no children. What inspired you to pursue a career as an Interior Designer? I've always been interested in interior design. I was always rearranging my bedroom growing up. My parents are both in creative fields, so it's always been a part of my life. I didn't really have an “ah ha” moment. I believe it was just sewn into me from the beginning! What makes you unique or in other words how do you stand out in a room full of interior designers? Most people don't fall into one design style. They like a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Often it's when they've gotten frustrated trying to mix styles on their own that they seek our help as designers. I can't even count how many times I've told clients that they are not alone! There is a fine line between hodgepodge and eclectic. I'm here to keep you on the eclectic side of that line! Anyone can go into a furniture store and buy a matching room set. That's no fun! Who wants to live in a furniture showroom? I ask lots of questions to get to the root of what my clients want both functionally and aesthetically. From there, I put a mix together that tells their story.  I resonate [...]
