adding-the-final-touches-to-your-home-remodeling-job-consider-french-revival-arlington-vaWhen the home remodeling job is finished, and you are left with a beautiful new space to spend your time in, the job doesn't stop there. 

Sure, the walls are up, your old stuff is sitting at ready, but isn't it time that you change a few more things up? 

Decorating a home is just as integral to the look and feel as is the remodeling job. The style you choose matters to how the home functions in its aesthetic. 

So while we don't think that one style is ever better than another, we do think that French revival is elegant enough to suit your style. Here are some tips on decorating for the Francophile hidden inside you.

- Buckets designed for purposes other than Champagne set off a room's look, giving a rustic appearance without obvious overtones.

- Bring the bistro in by adding a simple set of table and chairs that scream patio dining. Take a look at the Left Bank on Paris, and you'll see why French Revival design is entering dining areas all over the U.S.

- Trunks and cases work well for hiding things away, but work just as well as focal pieces for design and room structure. Stack them with style, and add a lovely throw of cloth to bring in the Old World.

- Replace that old sofa or love seat with a new chaise lounge. The long-used seat works well in any room where relaxation is on the agenda, and lets your guests envy your refined taste.

- Bring in classic china for sophistication, and add a certain "je ne sais quas," as the French say, to your formal dining area. Quaint and pretty matching cups and saucers invite and delight when it's time for tea.

Redecorating a room after a remodel is like working with a blank slate. The world you imagine is up to you. The only limitation is how far you can dream.

altChanging the front elevation of a home in Bethesda and installing Eagle replacement windows makes a huge difference to a home in Bethesda, MD.  alt












By elongating the front windows, we introduced more light into the Dining Room and Living Room.  Removing the old metal porch rails and supports and installing PVC columns and rails changed the architectural style of the home.  The balcony rails will go on in a few weeks - I'll share the final photo then.
altaltThis old fireplace with split face surround really needed some help.  Not only was it unattractive, but the previous builder set the fireplace behind the wood wall.  With a little creativitity and good marble and millwork shops, Natelli made custom extensions on the fireplace surround so the colonial wood mantle would fit properly over the fireplace.  Sometimes big problems have simple solutions.

This will be one of the most interesting "before and after" comparisons we have ever done. Using arrangements of Marvin casement windows, awning windows and fixed windows, we converted a typical traditional elevation of the rear of a master bedroom into an eye-popping view.

Standing in the home looking out makes me feel like I am in a museum. The results are strikingly beautiful and effective. The before and after photos say more than I could possibly put to words. Stay tuned and I'll be sure to show you the finished product.
