I thought I would share with you a project we began a few months ago.

 

It is for a cute, fun family of four who purchased a new home earlier this year.   Like many who recently move, they had several empty rooms where their existing furniture did not fit nor fill.

 

I have known them for several years, and they are the best.  Their two children are teenagers (one is in college), so they wanted a rooms with edge but that could stand lots of fun and casual entertaining among all ages.

 

Below is the furniture layout for the family room.  It is a large room, and our goal was to make good use of the space while giving lots of seating for football games and movies around the television.

The homeowners love blue and wanted bright colors so we kept these things in mind when selecting fabrics for the room. I love all the textures in these fabrics as they will help create depth and dimension in the room. These colors scream cozy and inviting to me. What about you?

We also created a layout for their dining room.

We pulled darker browns and gray tones for the fabrics in their dining room. The richness in these fabrics will create a more dramatic feel that isn’t too overpowering, with sheers lining two of the walls.  Again, lots of edge (an upholstered table ) but a casual, functional space to create memories with friends.

I am excited to see these rooms come to fruition. Stay tuned for more pictures of the finished product as we will be installing next month.

 

Have a great day-

For today’s Wednesday Wisdom, I am sharing some wise words from Thomas O’Brien.

Making a space feel collected -versus a room that looks like it was installed in one day- is best achieved through layering different elements in unexpected ways.   Mix up your pieces as this creates depth and interest.  You never want all of your furniture or its woods to “match” as this looks too much like a showroom floor.

 

There are several ways to layer effectively while looking less than perfect. Check out the images below.

The picture above is a great example of how layering artwork can make a space feel like it has evolved over time.

The picture above shows how important it is to mix the woods found in a room.   You see stained, painted, and gilded all in this very small space, yet it works.

This master is a good example of how important it is that not all of your upholstery have legs.  Again- it is a collected you are striving for- and you need some of each to balance the other out.

Who knew a breakfast area could have so many layers?!   You have a stainless steel table top, mounted onto a painted wood base, that sits on a cowhide rug.   Again you have the exposed legs of the ghost chair sitting next to a skirted banquette.   Mixing is key.

 

 

 

Hope you found this post helpful. I would love to hear your thoughts!

 

Have a great day, everyone-
