Artistic Mix of Style and Color
Based on extensive interviews with our clients, our challenges were to create an
environment that was an artistic mix of traditional and clean lines. They wanted it
dramatic and sophisticated. They also wanted each piece to be special and
unique, as well as artsy. Because our clients were young and have an active son,
they wanted their home to be comfortable and practical, as well as beautiful. The
clients wanted a sophisticated and up-to-date look. They loved brown, turquoise
and orange. The other challenge we faced, was to give each room its own
identity while maintaining a consistent flow throughout the home. Each space
shared a similar color palette and uniqueness, while the furnishings, draperies,
and accessories provided individuality to each room.
We incorporated comfortable and stylish furniture with artistic accents in
pillows, throws, artwork and accessories. Each piece was selected to not only be
unique, but to create a beautiful and sophisticated environment. We hunted the
markets for all the perfect accessories and artwork that are the jewelry in this
artistic living area.
Some of the selections included clean moldings, walnut floors and a backsplash
with mosaic glass tile. In the living room we went with a cleaner look, but used
some traditional accents such as the embroidered casement fabric and the paisley
fabric on the chair and pillows. A traditional bow front chest with a crackled
turquoise lacquer was used in the foyer.
