Our team had the pleasure to work hand in hand with this lovely family while they added on to their existing home. After speaking with them about the look they wanted and how they were going to use the spaces, we got to work.
The existing dining furniture was reused, but jazzed up with updated fabrics for the side chairs and the end chairs. We wanted those taller chairs to stand out and add some larger scale pattern while working with the new rug. To further add interest, a new light fixture was chosen and a beautiful colored seagrass wallcovering was installed to help the china cabinet be more of a focal.
In the living area, we wanted an elegant look for entertaining, and emphasis placed on the beautiful new pool while still having room for a grand piano. Light blues, vanillas and silver touches were used in velvets, faux silks and rich floral accent pillows. The scale of the rug brings in an updated look that plays well with the other transitional pieces chosen.
Transitioning to the kitchen through clean-lined barstools upholstered in an easy to clean fabric was the next step. Adjacent to that, in the breakfast area, the existing furniture was used. We chose to use indoor-outdoor fabrics that will wear well and transition beautifully between the new family and living rooms.
The family room boasts new oversized seating and furnishings that have a modern flair, yet the colors are accented with a milder lilac palette. The pieces in this room are all kid friendly and are meant for the family to relax together in comfort.
In the primary bedroom, we mixed favorite existing furniture pieces with new ones. The tufted velvet bedframe makes a statement, while the new bench transitions via pattern and placement in this large room. The desk chair was also remade and reupholstered so it could easily work with the client’s small desk. A reading nook for one was desired, so we created a comfortable chair and ottoman layout for quiet reading and relaxation.
The goal for the project was to create a space that was elegant yet user friendly, use favorite colors of lighter blues, lilacs and silver, bring in a modern look and still use some favorite family pieces. I think we accomplished it!
