This might be one of my favorite stories ever.
While his wife was away on a mission trip, a local homeowner contacted us to help redecorate their living room as a surprise for his wife when she returned. Together, the couple had found a couch and a rug that they both loved. And we had free reign to rearrange and accessorize the rest of the living room to go with the new items.
The family had some beautiful antiques, family photos, and accessories, which we used throughout the living room. We rearranged, added floral arrangements, and played with proportions of art and accessories. In the end, the refreshed living room is a warm and cozy room that the whole family can enjoy.
And, to top it off, the surprise was a success!
