As we enter in to a New Year and a new decade, I wish the very best for all of you and thank you for enriching my life in so many ways. You inspire me and motivate me—encourage and help me. I am grateful for the opportunity to stay in touch with each of you. May this New Year be filled with peace, joy and laughter, success and happiness. It may not be for everyone. And it takes a rather bold soul to venture out with as much color as we added to this lovely home. However, these rooms—and this client always make me smile. Obviously, our lovely client adores bold and exciting color. We drew our inspiration from a napkin that she had purchased in Paris. As dramatic as it was to have RED walls in her family room, we couldn’t resist extending that color on to her ceiling to draw your eye to the volume space. BLUE made the kitchen and keeping room bright and showcased the white cabinets and the white trim around the fireplace. The room was then pulled together with yellow fabrics on the upholstery and on the windows. Blue accents finished the look.
A hand painted armoire in custom colors added a funky and yet functional element. The one of a kind and varied jeweled knobs on this armoire were added to the cabinets in the kitchen. In her living room, our client had inherited some beautiful furniture from her grandmother that just needed some new fabric. Her contemporary artwork (also from Paris) updated this more traditional room. The end result was classic and yet new. I can’t tell you how much fun we had with this project and with this adventuresome client. Have some fun with your home!
