I can honestly say I really love designing homes for our clients. Wether it is a new build, addition, full gut or just a room refresh, I love the challenge each project brings and making it into the best space for our clients. With each design decision, we have the opportunity to be intentional about how each detail will work together in a room. I never tire of dreaming up these details with our team and seeing each space come together. Just over a year ago we finished our Fairhaven residence. Our clients had recently purchased a new home and had asked us on to help furnish and style the living room and eat in kitchen. These kinds of before and afters are so rewarding to see, and illustrate how impactful each detail can be.
Family Room Before
The family room was a really large space . It felt empty when furnished with standard sized furniture and lacked a focal point. The offset windows and doors also made the room feel unbalanced.
Living Room Afters
Whenever designing a large living space, I'm always careful to fill out the room with large enough furniture while at the same time also ensuring it will be cozy for conversation. In this space, we pulled the furniture in from the outside walls. This allowed a walkway to the patio doors, and also enough space for a cabinet behind the sofa as a sightline when you fist walk into the room. The large sectional and ottomans were custom designed and built to fit the room, and finished in performance fabric. As the main focal point in the room, we added a fireplace wall with built ins. The mantle was made from a reclaimed beam and inset into a limewash wall adding a beautiful mix of texture.
Eat-in Kitchen Before
Eat-in Kitchen Afters
Welcome to the kitchen dining nook. This space is just off the kitchen, and was their everyday dining table. The built in dining bench added a beautiful and laid back design detail, while also maximizing seating and clearance space to the formal dining room. We mixed deep moody tones for a cozy and inviting feel, and the mix of artwork gives an eclectic backdrop to the space.
