Built in the early 1940's, this home, newly acquired by my client, was seriously lacking in personality and warmth (note the BEFORE images). Tackling a full interior refresh, as well as some serious exterior renovations (including a new roof), the client asked for a space where she could entertain and show off her art collection.
Not afraid of using bold colour, we kept the main colour a soft, warm grey to let the art and stunning furnishings stand out and used deeper hues in the bedroom and dressing room to create bright and cozy spaces.
Key features implemented include repainting the fireplace to a deep azure, adding a showstopping light fixture in the kitchen, tossing out the fan over the dining room in favour of a mixed metal chandelier and replacing the front door with a vinyl craftsman style door with window. Filling out the design foundation, the client's excellent eye for mixing new and period pieces has created a home that is loaded with personality and is welcoming to close friends and family who visit often.
This truly is a 'social space'.
Happy Clients Say...
I felt like I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted. I wanted the spaces to flow and be connected. I knew what I wanted to change. I didn't know how to make that happen - Amy was helpful in translating the vision to something real. We had lots of conversations about what I wanted and Amy was able to articulate that into product choices and colour selections. I know had I tried to do it myself, I would not have put it together in the way that it turned out - with this way having much better results!
