Our homes should be an extension of the people who inhabit them - an authentic representation of their dreams, passions, and unique journeys. We believe in creating spaces that embody each client's individuality and also gives a sense of belonging they can't find anywhere else. This family room project is no exception.
When we first sat down with our clients, we could tell their family room was missing that special something. It was a blank canvas, devoid of personality, style, and not at all reflective of their fun personalities and creativity (did we mention one of them is an amazing artist?!). But they had been stuck in a state of decision paralysis. They had so many ideas and options but just couldn't seem to move forward. After identifying the main pain points in the space, we got to work curating the perfect color palette that would infuse this space with the energy, vibrancy and warmth they craved. Oh, and we gave them a small homework assignment that would help pull the space all together! More on that later...
A large, vintage-looking rug instantly warms up the room and serves as the jumping off point for the rest of our color palette of various blues, teals and pops of rust. We re-imagined their existing seating into a layout that is far more conducive for entertaining and conversation. The addition of two media cabinets along one of the room's window walls provides ample storage for our client's beloved record collection. The deep navy color helps to ground the space while the glass fronts allow for other treasures to be displayed.
Speaking of treasures - we surprised our clients with two one-of-a-kind pillows sourced from a local merchant during Cori's recent trip to Israel. One of her favorite things to do while traveling is to scour local markets for inspiration and special pieces she can incorporate into her clients' homes that they won't find anywhere else! We included one of those special finds over in the cozy corner we created for the oversized chair and ottoman. Nestled in between the media cabinets and the fireplace, it's the perfect spot for our clients to curl up with their morning coffee. New custom pillows bring life to the neutral sofa and loveseat while the addition of layered window treatments provides softness and draws your eye up to a previously overlooked detail: the vaulted ceiling. New occasional tables, and additional stools that can be pulled around for extra seating options help round out the design.
With our client being such a talented painter, we knew we had to commission a custom art piece that would pull the room together. The new artwork became the centerpiece, installed on a unique easel lamp, weaving their artistic identity into the very fabric of the room. It's a true celebration of their talents and a testament to their personal tastes. By embracing our client's artistic talents, infusing captivating colors, incorporating global accents, and showcasing their custom art, we brought their vision to life.
This family room now radiates warmth, laughter, and a sense of belonging. It has become a sanctuary where every brushstroke, every color, and every accent is a direct reflection of the remarkable individuals who live here.
