CLIENT PROJECT | SOFT CONTEMPORARY CITY APT
BUDGET | $2,500
Our client moved into an urban-influenced apartment and wanted to juxtapose her love of pinks, gold and shine with the gray-washed exposed brick and original hardwood flooring. She also asked for seating for 5 or more.
From her Style ID, I guided her to a Soft Contemporary design board with floating furniture (the credenza and furniture with legs) to elevate the smaller footprint and make the entire interior appear larger. I also selected a gorgeous refined sectional with clean, simple lines and a crushed pink velvet accent chair with a lovely gold base. The knit pouf triples as a side table, seat or footrest. The shiny accents and decor allow the natural light to bounce around the room - a great small space design tip.
CLIENT PROJECT | MODERN FARM COTTAGE
BUDGET | $7,500
We love this modern farm cottage living room that our clients asked for in their Sonoma home. Their main design requests were a soft and comfy space with seating for casual conversation using a neutral palette with moments of green to complement the beautiful nature outdoors. And a wood planked ceiling. #Love The only design exception - the travertine floor that doesn't really scream "farm cottage" Here are a few ways we tackled this digi- design project.
We selected a mix of neutral tones in cream, whites, beige, soft gray. The gray and white striped sisal rug was our foundation layer and we added in white shiplap board on the fireplace mantle wall to add texture. The walls were adorned with the prettiest pewter grasscloth wallpaper and a large leaning mirror opposite the window wall bounced all the gorgeous natural light around the room. The key items in the room- matching white upholstered sofas and tufted gray accent chairs - were placed in a symmetrical and balanced manner to add a cohesive flow. We found lovely upcycled green glass table lamps and french wine decanter decor to introduce tiny moments of green. And of course this grand room needed a major lighting statement, which we achieved through this modern farmhouse wood and metal chandelier.
