Carly Blalock Interiors
Carly Blalock Interiors is built around a diverse design team, whose individual facets provide a plethora of creative ideas – and value – to every client’s project. At CBI, we strive to interpret the vision of a client – and then bring it to life. Function is always the platform we begin with, coupled with a timeless design that comes alive – and stands on it's own.
We hired Carly & Co to re-design our family room after being in our home for 13 years, with kids who were finally old enough that we could ditch the ugly "wipe off" furniture. I suppose we were challenging clients, in that we had no idea what our budget was and I had a rustic coffee table and shelf-unit we had recently acquired that we loved and wanted to keep in the space, but really wanted to "upscale" the room despite these pieces (I mean - a little barn wood and metal is fun; too much and we're searching for fresh eggs on the floor each morning). Carly did an amazing job of getting us out of our comfort zone with high quality products that let us live our normal life in the space. (Velvet chairs and a light tan sectional - with two boys! But the pieces are durable AND gorgeous) Beyond that, here are some of my personal favorites about working with Carly and her team - They were patient with me. Since I had no real budget in mind, and my husband is an accountant, we probably micro-analyzed costs on each item a little too much. Example: I would splurge on a custom sofa, but when our 'must have' sectional pricing came in super high with our selected, Carly scoured a warehouse to find some similar discontinued fabric that fit our project perfectly, and hit my 'imaginary' budget. Timing - I didn't have a specific project timeline in place, and wasn't ready to make all the decisions up front. Carly's team paced the project out perfectly, adding elements that would make an impact as I made decisions, but stuck with me when I said "hold on a while."
I can hardly finish this up without mentioning the GORGEOUS wall treatment she found for us for the space behind our fireplace. We asked for some texture and this wallpaper blew our minds.
Carly and her team have created a living space where our family can relax together, but also where we can entertain friends in a comfortable, cozy, elegant room. When I first met Carly and said "This rustic, mudcloth covered table and this barnwood/metal shelf/cabinet must stay", I had no idea how she would make that work. She has lived up to the challenge and exceeded our expectations!
Margo has been sensational in making four rooms of our home extremely interesting, inviting, & very classy. I will never use anyone else for interior design.
We will have her back to finish the rest of house shortly. We are so happy with the outcome, & that she operated within our budget.
