Davidson Family Home: Part 1

I'm a little behind but Happy New Year! 2015 was an awesome year for MaeMae Studios and I have big plans and a few changes coming for 2016. I'll be announcing them soon! But first I want to start with talking about design. Although I'll still be doing photography my shift will be geared more toward design and showing you how to make your house a home; a happy place to LIVE. 

My great friend Megan D and I go way back- we even started our photography business together named The Other Megan. Clever uh? Last year they were forced to make some renovations because of a major issue with the septic tank and a few other things. Although the circumstances weren't ideal I was excited she asked me to help! I'll start by sharing the piano area. Before the stairs were moved to accommodate the changes in the basement, this area was the main living room. Now, it's a perfect gathering spot for her husband and kids to play music plus store kids backpacks. 

A few changes we made were: refinish the wood floor, add rug, pulled extra chairs from dining table for seating and painted the piano...which is such an easy way to update an old piano and add a pop of color!
