Dining Room: Ladera Ranch Project

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a nice weekend.  I spent most of my weekend preparing for another staging project in Yorba Linda, CA.  Looking forward to installing next week! 

I will be continuing the home tour of our recent project in Ladera Ranch, CA.  Hope you enjoy the photos.  More to come this week.

{Dining Room}
 The long bench on one side of the dining table is a fun way to mix up the seating.

 The ceiling in this room is so beautiful.  

You can't tell from these photos but the walls are covered in a silvery blue/green grass cloth.

Living Room: Orange, Palladian Blue & Apple Green

Thank you so much for all of your support and encouragement from yesterday's post!  I am looking forward to all of our new ventures!
Today, we continue our recent home tour with some photos of the Living Room.  I love this room and there are so many statement pieces.  The art, the entry table and the cocktail table are some of my all time favorites!
 This entry chest from Joss and Main, is even more lovely in person.  It was such a find!

 This color scheme seems to never get old with me.  I think its timeless, soothing and yet fun at the same time. 

We have the Dining Room, Master Bedroom and misc. areas left to share.  In case you missed it, here are some other areas of this home we have already featured...

Belmont Design Group Update

I recently mentioned some exciting changes happening with BDG.  I think the biggest change is a full time collaboration with these two lovely ladies.  Not only are we great friends but these girls bring so much to Belmont Design Group, it is such an exciting venture.

The three of us have actually worked together for the past couple of years, just more behind the scenes. 

Andrea (left) has been my book keeper extraordinaire for the past 3 years and has literally SAVED me!  You should have seen the stacks of paper and disorganization this girl took over.  She graduated with a degree in Business Finance from BYU and in an odd twist, is very creative (left AND right brained, a very rare combo :)).  I no longer freak out whenever I get letters from the IRS or the State Board of Equalization.  Phew!!  Not only does she keep track of the book keeping, she is the most organized person I know and since design work is about 90% organization :(, she helps me beyond measure.  Andrea's creativity and good eye for design are such an added bonus!  She has worked with me from project inception to completion and understands how the design process works  So happy to have her countless talents as part of our team!
Meet Andrea (LEFT) and Lara (RIGHT) Team BDG

Lara (right) has also been helping me behind the scenes with her mad marketing skills.  She is so strong in areas I am so weak.  We are a good balance and she has been such a tremendous help in expanding BDG over the years!  Lara, graduated with a degree in Communications from BYU and has worked in sales, marketing and human resources with top 50 corporations.  Lara is amazingly creative and full of experience and ideas to expand BDG.  Her marketing skills are just a small part of what Lara brings to our team.  She also has an incredible eye for design, which growing up with an Interior Designer Mom, is in her blood.  Now that we have joined forces, officially, I am excited to see where she will take us next!  So thankful for this girl!

 Another big step with BDG is the opening of our new design studio.  Our new work space is located in Ladera Ranch inside this official isn't it? :)  It is so nice to be able to have a large enough space to house all of the new products we are excited to now be offering!  

Our new space includes a custom material showroom...something I have wanted forever!  Basically, we are now a one stop shop for all remodeling projects, whether you are using us for interior design or not, we welcome those seeking access to quality products with a customized experience.  Our showroom has carpet, tile and a number of other re-modeling products available.  With a visit to your home we will determine the best color, style and materials for you, taking into account your price point and lifestyle.  We will break it down to a few options to help make the process as easy as possible.  It's completely custom per client. 

Our team has also been busy developing a new division of BDG that will focus on Home Staging.  We are so excited to be working on a new build project (installing October 16, will be posted soon) as well as other residential homes with an investment group in the Yorba Linda, CA area.  We have secured a fabulous, on trend, inventory of home furnishings and look forward to working with agents to sell their homes quickly!  We hope to bring our stylish residential feel rather than the typical "staged" feel to the market place.  My background as a Model Home Merchandiser makes this new venture a natural transition.

Our direct sales of materials is also a huge benefit to our staging side of the business.  We are able to assist with updating homes beyond furnishings, to help sellers/agents get top dollar for their investment!

So, that's it in a nutshell.  I am so grateful to have been able to grow BDG from a small desk in my bedroom a decade ago to where it is today!  Having these two talented partners is so exciting....Oh, the places we'll go :)

Continuing our latest home tour...Today, we are featuring this adorable reading/loft space.  
The inspiration for this room originally started with one of my favorite colorful fabrics

This Schumacher fabric is so fun and colorful, it makes the perfect window bench fabric.  I wanted this room to be FUN and a place the kids would love to read and hang out together in.

Since this room is all about reading and their love of children's books, the colors from the Eric Carl books are a cute addition to this space.  These Inexpensive prints were framed in white Ikea frames and surround the entire room.

Have a great weekend!  I have more photos from this project to share next week as well as an exciting BDG announcement on Monday.
