Combining Design Styles for Your Home

The Coton House Design aims to create a design for your home that is warm, sophisticated, and dynamic, which their team can translate into virtually any design style. Their clients have a home in West U that needed to say goodbye to the 1990s and elevate it with a new design aligning with current design trends. Their team is known for combining styles to create balance in their designs. The client had previously worked with our owner and principal designer, Laurie Coton, and decided to use her design services again. They can tell a lot about their clients, usually by how they dress. She loves bright colors and fun patterns, while he likes neutrals and architectural patterns. The first time the designers met her, she wore a fuchsia organza top, emerald pointed-toe flats with crystals, and bright red glasses. They gave the team plenty to work with, and you can find elements for each of them throughout the design.

Our clients go to Coton House because they create curated comfort and exceptional spaces- regardless of the design style. They use the phrase, “Your home should be a reflection of you and who you want to be” because the priority is “You.” The clients wanted to add “Color in Moderation” to their home. In the main living area, the emerald, amber, and navy finishes were selected to give the space an accent of color for her and tie in architectural patterns for him in the fabric pattern and leg design of the navy chair and the Greek Key tape on the sofa pillows. The team loves the Holly Hunt lens table with the dark amber resin top and the matte black base that adds interest to the space when mixing finishes. A silver base was specified for the cocktail table, while brass nesting side tables were selected to go next to the vintage 1990s Donghia Tub chair-inspired piece they designed for the client. The chair was made by Creative Style Furniture, including elements he loved but keeping with the room’s design.

Coton House can assist you in making decisions-– even when it is difficult. They combine the award-winning design services of the Coton House design team with the artisanship and quality of their trusted vendors. The dining room pulls the amber color from the living room. The design team used the Berman Rosetti Ninety Degrees of Separation Table and the Lee Industries Dining Chairs to make the space feel warm and comfortable while being sophisticated and dynamic. The design team aims for their clients to enjoy their newly designed homes and be proud to entertain more often. As a full-service real estate brokerage and design firm, Coton House can assist with home purchases to the finishing touches and all points in between.

Coton House was formed to fulfill the mission of creating beautiful homes and spaces that embody the individuality of their clients. They listen to your ideas, likes and dislikes, and budgetary considerations. The team will ask lots of questions to create a design unique to you. Our client is a lawyer that works from home often and wanted a fun background for her Zoom meetings in her home office. The design team decided to create a design displaying her fun personality and making her happy. A Phillip Jeffries fuchsia grasscloth wallcovering was installed on the wall behind her desk to serve as the background for video calls. The rug chosen for her office is a Lee Jofa rug made of recycled Saris and was hand-knotted in India. The variety of colors on the rug enhances the wallcovering and brightens the space creating a room she loves to spend time in.

The Coton House Design Team understands that allowing someone into your home and trusting that person to make improvements that benefit you is a big decision, and we are ready to answer any questions you may have. Their clients were not prepared to part ways with the comfort and utility of their original sectional, so the team decided to have a custom sectional made to the exact dimensions and cushion type. They updated the space with pieces that offered clean lines and a traditional style. They wanted to maximize their space by incorporating an “L-shaped” sectional with one side against one wall and the other defining the TV room from the hallway. Mixing textures and adding color was the way to bring this room up to date with current design trends.

Even the workout room got some personality. Not only does it make the space more comfortable, but it makes it more enjoyable to be in. The Coton House designers are known for using color throughout without overwhelming the space, creating a sophisticated and dramatic outcome. Their clients wanted a home they would be proud to bring their friends and family and felt more grown up. Meshing the two styles together was a fun challenge. The husband prefers neutral tones, lovely textures, and architectural patterns. On the opposite end of the spectrum, the wife loves color and unique pieces. They love the opportunity to create designs with color in moderation so that their clients feel at ease and comfortable in their newly designed homes.
