Working with inherited pieces is often a challenge. Here, through the use of natural fibers and textures, we have created a British Isle inspired look to incorporate a more traditional inherited highboy and define a relaxed getaway. Addressing the trim around the windows, replacing outdated louvered doors and a cozy mocha paint color set the stage.
New honey colored wood floors, paint, furniture and accessories gave this previously tired townhome a fresh new look. Sleek modern styling and rich chocolate leathers and woods are both elegant and comfortable. Creative space planning and furniture layouts maximized the use of space and gave the homeowner a more functional and stunning home.
The outdoors are just as important to the experience of home. The soft natural curves of the patio perimeter paired with the random rectangular variegated bluestone provides just the right balance of nature and order. Low stone walls offer a rougher texture and some warmer beige tones to define the border while also allowing for expanded seating when entertaining. The homeowner's request for some classical elements to complement the traditional home architecture were incorporated with the (3) column supports, above which is an ipe deck with wrought iron rail that gently arcs out toward the trees. The balance of detail and restraint allow the beauty of the outdoors to take center stage.
