Based on extensive interviews with our clients, our challenges were to create an environment that was an artistic mix of contemporary and traditional design.

They wanted it dramatic and sophisticated.  They also wanted each piece to be special and unique, as well as artsy.  Because our clients were young and have an active son, they wanted their home to be comfortable and practical, as well as beautiful. The clients wanted a sophisticated and up-to-date look.

They loved brown, turquoise and orange.  The other challenge we faced, was to give each room its own identity while maintaining a consistent flow throughout the home. Each space shared a similar color palette and uniqueness, while the furnishings, draperies, and accessories provided individuality to each room.

We incorporated comfortable and stylish furniture with artistic accents in pillows, throws, artwork and accessories.  Each piece was selected to not only be unique, but to create a beautiful and sophisticated environment.  We hunted the markets for all the perfect accessories and artwork that are the jewelry in this artistic living area.

In the living room we went with a contemporary look, but used some traditional accents such as the embroidered casement fabric and the paisley fabric on the chair and pillows. A traditional bow front chest with a contemporary crackled turquoise lacquer was used in the foyer.

Some of the selections included clean moldings, walnut floors and a backsplash with mosaic glass tile.
