This week, we’re installing a project we’ve been working on for over a year and I CANNOT wait!!!  (And neither can our clients, who have been waiting patiently to move in!!) 


 

I was completely in love with the house from the moment I first stepped inside it last year.  Built at the turn of the century, it had wonderful bones but was in need of some love.  It was incredibly charming but the floor plan needed a little updating and reworking to fit our clients’ lifestyle and their young family.   My clients worked with the team of architects at Cunningham Quill who created a beautiful plan that’s timeless yet filled with modern conveniences & really has a new level of functionality.  The house has a seamless indoor-outdoor connection, which is one of the most important characteristics to me in a home.  You can’t help but imagine doors flung open and curtains blowing in this place.

Our clients’ style is fresh and colorful.  They like to mix furnishings-  from Mid Century Modern to English antiques- and wanted to bring in modern touches to their historical home.  Most of our architectural/ hard goods selections – such as the stair rails, flooring, woodwork, tile etc.- were in keeping with the traditional nature of the home, so we’re bringing the fun in with fabrics, furnishings and art.   This has been such a fun and creatively satisfying project because our clients will say things like, “go big or go home,” and they’ve been so open to stepping outside of their comfort zones.   (They are also hysterical.)  They have a very defined style but are incredibly open-minded design-wise.  We’re mixing in family pieces with new ones and are bringing in lots of bright colors- navy, blues, mossy greens, oranges and corals.

I hope you enjoyed this little under-construction peek!!  Fingers crossed that all goes well over the next few days!!
