City life is a good life, however the desire to plant new roots–in a backyard of grass not concrete–took my client from condominium life in Midtown to a community of charming bungalows in Kirkwood.
Though it had been newly renovated by the previous owner, we still had lots of work to do to further personalize the space for my client. Some of the task list included the following:
- A/V and home theater installation
- New concrete driveway
- New outdoor furnishings for porch and deck
- New light fixtures
- New furniture
- New window treatments
- New rugs
- Kitchen modifications—yes! Our team does it all!
This post focuses primarily on the interior spaces. I’ll be sure to share outdoor photos soon!
The living room welcomes guests with bold color inspired by an Aboriginal painting the client purchased while on a business trip. The only new items in this room are the custom window treatments and the area rug. All of the furnishings were brought over from the previous home—which we decorated, too! As I said before, repeat clients and referrals are the lifelines of our business. I’m so grateful.
On the sofa, a pair of embroidered pillow covers from Thailand prove to be beautiful conversation starters.
Atop an antique sideboard, the Vintage Cocktails coffee table book becomes an art display when placed on an easel. The colorful pages and recipes make it a great gift for your favorite entertainer!
The den, aka the media room, is complete and ready for a cozy night in. Just add popcorn. I couldn’t be more in love with the color palette and it all started with this soft, colorful jute (yes jute!!) rug.
And with this super comfy new Lee Industries sectional, bless their hearts they’ll likely fall asleep before the movie is over. A combination of throw pillows—custom, spun wool stripes from Dixon Rye, and an oversized Mongolian wool pillow from West Elm add just the right amount of textural interest.
The work we completed in the guest room of the previous home fit perfectly here! We simply painted the room the same color and add new custom window treatments.
A bedroom turned home office received handsome new furnishings which included the desk and bookcase (as seen above) as well as a the most comfortable sleeper sofa from Room and Board.
The rug used to be in the former living room and thanks to its modular configuration, we were able to modify it to fit this room. Have you ever tried FLOR carpet tiles? You’ll love their flexibility and useful applications!
The master bedroom furniture was existing from the last project as well. Once again, we painted, added new rugs, custom window treatments, and new furniture for the adjacent sitting area.
The spring/summer months are commonly the busiest times for home sales. If you have moved into a new home, we can help make a smooth transition. We also have the design and project management skills, contractors, and tradespeople to customize the new home to your liking. After all, you don’t have the time—we do.
We hope to hear from you soon!
