Mark & Kit have a gorgeous home, great style and have the perfect laid back casual California vibe that matches their beautiful home. As with all the homeowner's we have been lucky to work with, we loved spending time with them! We laughed a lot and shared many sweets including an amazing cake that Kit made for all of us on the day of reveal...SO GOOD! (mmmmmmmm, cake)
Their home all on it's own is just a beautiful piece of architecture that feels warm and inviting (just like them) but they wanted the room they spend lot of time in and entertain in (the living room) to be a bit more "finished" with a casual sophistication.
Mark & Kit were inspired to make changes and take chances after browsing the RMS web page and find 3 super-amazing inspirations:
-KELLY & DAVE have a very balanced furniture arrangement that allowed for conversation and entertaining without feeling crowded.
-MONICA & ED have really beautiful built-ins that both mark & Kit wanted to find a way to be able to incorporate into their floor plan.
-JOEY & DAVID have a stunning dining room with beautiful cool blues on the wall and warm toned furnishings and drapery that Mark & Kit wanted to incorporate. They shied away from painting their ceiling a lighter shade of blue than their walls, even though I tried to convince them, but after the reveal of the room....they booked a painter to come that weekend and do the ceiling.
AWESOME JOB to all our inspirational homeowner's! You were all so great to speak to and your advice & encouragement for Mark & Kit were much appreciated by all.
