A Project of Joy
February 8, 2021
Our client (Joy), lives in this gorgeous historic home on the east side. She charged us with the task of creating a living space that she couldn't wait to come home to... and wake up to in the morning.
So let's take a look at 10 design considerations and how we put them into action.
We were able to complete this gorgeous room except for one detail, the new chandelier, which replaces the original fixture (and will be gently re-purposed in the dining room). A certified electrician needs to install the new fixture and is scheduled to do so the middle of this week. It will be simply amazing in this room.
We created an interesting (and functional) room layout that brought the entire room together as one instead of creating small little areas in this long and thin room. Our client really wanted to use these two lounges in the space for casual and comfortable seating near the fireplace but also needed additional seating for entertaining.
A down filled sofa was placed at the end of the room and just seemed to pull the entire space together creating one large room. It also provided our customer with a really cozy and comfortable place to unwind at the end of the day.
An extra wide floor length mirror helps expand the width of the room and is framed beautiful with the white linen panels. As soon as that new light fixture is hung, the mirror will reflect back all the beautiful layers and textures in the room.
Our client's husband already had a large bar cabinet placed in the room. We thought it was important that he had a nearby surface to set up his bar when entertaining in this lovely room. We chose a stone console to flank the end of one of our lounges and near the existing bar cabinet.
You will see (in all the pictures) many lovely layers of art, accessories, rugs, pillows and throws. Mixing various metals and textures along the way.
Not only did our client love the new look and feel of her living room... but the dog of the house was pretty happy with the (or should I say 'his') new rug.
As always, the only thing that really matters is successfully meeting the dreams, wants and needs of our clients. For us, that makes it a project of joy.
