Welcome to Abby Manchesky Interiors!
Hi all! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today I want to share one of my latest new clients and a few plans. It all started when I was on the Q & A panel for The Bloom Workshop. See, I love to talk and have plenty of opinions and therefore I'm super chatty for any question and answer session. A couple days later I received an email from A., asking to set up a consultation. I wish you could have seen my face when I pulled in her driveway. No joke...this is my dream home. But it's not mine, it's theirs! ;-)
She's an artist, and they are the most adorable southern couple that somehow ended up in Michigan building their dream home. Here's the interesting part...
The home is on the cover of a local magazine this month because it's a parade home, but what you see in the photos didn't stay. I get the true privilege of working with this fantastic family to make it their forever home. Woo Hoo!
Before I really break it down, just take a look at her talent. She creates gorgeous paintings. Obviously I want one.

Back to her home.
Combine Boho-Farmhouse-California Casual-Southern Traditional.
I know you want to see the entire house, but we have to start somewhere and the first room we're doing together is the master bedroom. The house has great bones. Lucky me!
One show-stopper piece in their bedroom is this huge mirror from the capitol building in Lansing that she found at a store in Cascade. It's a perfect fit on this wall, and I love the architecture.
Here's where I get to help...
The bed and bedding will stay, along with the dresser.
-place for kids to lounge
This is the wall opposite the bed with a beautiful fireplace. The candles will go and be replaced with stacked family photos. Think layers and height.
Similar to this.
Here are a few photos she loves and is inspired by...
Most of the home is neutral now, and she's ready to add inspiration through color.
But she also asked for a bit of masculine for her husband. Let's start with
This dresser has a rich masculine vibe but still plenty of style.
A leather ottoman on a farm? Yes. Easy for the kiddos to lounge, good texture, and a
nod to the masculine.
This lamp reads boho-masculine to me. Am I right?!
Now for the color and love...
This photograph paired with her gorgeous abstract.
A juju hat is boho, feminine, and at this point, a classic if you ask me. You can't beat it's beauty, softness and visual texture.
I think besides a monogram, every southerner needs a little buffalo check in their life.
This fabric is a possibility for a piece of furniture. We'll see.
Knit and sequins? It just seems right.
Want to see what it all looks like put together?
You'll have to come back tomorrow. ;-)
