The home was bland with no architectural elements pre-existing our design renovations and the client requested more character with more functional and aesthetic appeal.
The couple has twin boys and a third younger boy, as well as two cats. The house needed to be suitable for tons of play and use, so durable and quality were two key words in our minds while designing. Why quality? Because we believe that when you invest in real quality products you are able to refinish and reupholster knowing that the piece itself will hold up and last. With three boys, we needed the quality and durability!
Our clients’ style is what I consider to be ‘Eclectically Classic with an Edge’! They like things that look classic with neutral, classic colors, but they like clean lines and a bit of an edge and urban or modern touch to them. This combination brings interest and personality into the atmosphere of each space we designed.
The goal for the finished spaces, was to create beautiful, comfortable and inviting atmospheres while providing solutions for all of their functional requirements.
We renovated and furnished the Master Bedroom and Bathroom with custom designs and furnishings, turned a bland shell of a Guest Bedroom into the new Library with new custom builtins, custom daybed and custom furnishings, and turned an open landing area into a Homework Nook with custom cabinets, window seat and desk area. We also did work in other spaces of the house including the Living Room, the Kitchen breakfast area, created a custom, lockable bar cabinet in the Dining Room and designed custom wainscoting for the entire Foyer and adjacent hallways.
