Transforming a house into a home for a family of six was the primary challenge of this project. Elegant and sophisticated, it lacked the warmth and comfort this family desired. It was important for us to make sure every room supported this family’s busy lifestyle. Working with existing architecture, all ivory walls became light taupe. Finish selections consist of various shades of blue and gray throughout the home. Small doses of camel, gold, and brick add a contrasting balance.
A console table with an oversized table lamp and a catchall dish greet those who enter. The addition of a colorful rug creates a vignette against a mother-of-pearl wall. On the other side of this focal wall, the dining room houses the parent’s existing dining furniture. Next to a lush palm tree, a beautiful black and white family photo adorns the wall.
Central to the home, floating sculptural circles provide whimsy to most viewpoints. Nearby, a massive glistening chandelier suspends over the formal living room. Neutral seating allows the accessories and artwork to take center stage. A vibrant Dorothea Sandra original hangs above the fireplace grounding the entire space.
A breakfast area connects the living room with both the family room and kitchen. A custom banquette wraps the outer wall, allowing more seating to serve their family. Across the table, velvet wrapped chairs provide a colorful texture uniting nearby spaces. Overhead, a gold and glass chandelier coordinates with the velvet's metallic threads.
A steel blue focal wall draws visitors into the family room where new gold hardware allows the media unit to coordinate with the home's interior design. Two ombré wood sculptures flank the family's TV adding a playfulness to the room. A homework station allows the parents to keep an eye on their students while preparing dinner. Minor tweaks to the Master Bedroom made this space their own consisting of new furniture with colorful accessories, making this room more welcoming and comfortable.
Telling a family’s story throughout their home is a passion for us. It was so fun to populate each room with an element that is unique to this wonderful family. Using children’s artwork in both the casual and formal spaces adds interest and encourages their inherent creative sides.
