Pastel Haven

This project was a rewarding small job with a big result. Our client couldn't be sweeter and easier to work with during the entire design process. Our clients home had been in her husbands family for years and after renovating it's now more functional and reflective of how their family lives. The home has great bones with lots of detail in the moldings, and original hardwood floors. This project was a blank canvas but our client didn't know how to make it look lived in. She had purchased things here and there through the years but didn't know how to put it all together. What's a great thing to hear from a client in the beginning stages is "I am not opposed to starting all over". We of course were like "Oh Yea! Lets start fresh!". Ideally, we don't want or tell clients often to start all over. We actually recommend keeping a couple of grounding pieces with timeless design whether it be a vintage/traditional piece or even modern frames such as the original Saarinen dining table passed down from her parents from the sixties (pristine condition may I add). First thing we recommended for her space was to paint everything in a fresh coat of white which would give the newly proposed pieces a crisp look. Her and her husband are art collectors, so most of the art we kept in the main great room. Most of our inspiration for color scheme came from their art collection, which had lots of pastel hues. After seeing art work, we then found a rug which grounds half of the main living and ties into the custom sofa fabric and dining chairs on the opposite side. All the custom upholstery has a feminine yet transitional flair which works well in such a bright and open space. Although the space has a ton of natural light, lighting fixtures were still very important. Multiple layers of light we had placed throughout the foyer and the main living. In the foyer we had installed two oversized gilded gold sconces with florets and gold beaded detail. They're absolutely gorgeous flanking both sides of the artwork. We also had installed two sconces with black shades for the dining area while over the main seating area hangs an extremely French antique chandelier with clear and blue crystals. All and all, this space really reflects our clients style with its timeless pieces. We are doing this home in stages, so in 2018 you will see their master bedroom transform.
