This month Laura of Pembroke been busy decorating the entranceway and foyer of The Akron Junior League ShowHouse and the Helen Scott Custom Builders Parade of Homes at Kings Ridge in Green, Ohio.  It's always fun to start with a blank space and transform it into a beautiful room.  Of course we would love to appeal to everyone's decorating tastes or styles, but unfortunately it rarely works out that way.  So we did our best to showcase these two homes and I must say they look awesome!

We decorated the entrance way and the foyer of the Akron Junior League ShowHouse.

We wanted to stay true to the style of the house and I think we definitely achieved the look we wanted for the ShowHouse.  

Here are some before pics:

We started with a beautiful console that fit in beautifully

with the style of the home.

The Helen Scott Custom Builders Parade home was a big project.  We furnished and fully decorated the great room, dining, and master bedroom and providing all the lighting for the home.  We accented two other bedrooms, master bath, guest bath, laundry and kitchen. To see the empty rooms come alive with personality was so rewarding especially knowing the hard work and time spent on picking out the right pieces for each room.  

Normally when we work with a client, we follow their lead and try to capture their style and personality when picking out furniture and accessories. A parade home is much different.  The builder gives some direction, but it is our responsibility to make the home as inviting and appealing to as many people as possible.  We are selling Laura of Pembroke, but also want the home to look the best it can for the majority of people touring it, so the builder can sell it and hopefully find other clients who will use them to build their next home.  So let's take a tour!
