North Carolina French Interior Design (above)
This beautiful ladies dressing room was formerly an office. It will now be used for relaxing and reading.. It has an opening from the master suite and is decorated with the soft hues of blue, aqua and cream. The custom painted french chest is trimmed in gold and the "Marilyn" ottoman is in a softly textured cream fabric.
The soft pastel hues continue in the rug and the pretty drapery fabric. The final piece will be a large ivory painted bookcase. This may hold an antique purse collection.
Transitional Interior Design | Full Service Interior Design
We worked on this project from the ground up, selecting moldings, light fixtures, flooring and paint colors. This young couple wanted more neutral backgrounds on the walls with splashes of color. They wanted a mix of transitional and traditional pieces. They liked French but wanted the room to have a very up-to-date feel.
We started with a French table and buffet. For comfort we added some transitional chairs in an aqua fabric, which the client loved. The chairs were chosen based on the clean lines and the curves that tied in to the French.
The artwork was selected to add color and bring in brown, aqua and orange accents that were used throughout the home. We used a more traditional aqua print drapery treatment to add pattern to the room. A custom tablecloth was made to match (not shown).
All the accents were selected to be unique items but still blend harmoniously with the overall design. We searched the markets and found a beautiful gold and aqua carnivale bowl centerpiece filled with 4” crystal spheres and flanked by crystal honeycomb candleholder/vases.
The thick iron-frame mirror was hand-crimped and scalloped with hand-painted bronzing and solid brass balls. It is also trimmed with crystal accents.
Modern Master Bath Makeover (photos below)
This client moved into a home that needed a complete master bathroom makeover. She wanted a modern design, a larger shower, better storage, good vanity lighting and a place to sit down. We took out the bathtub to free up more space. This allowed us to add a larger shower and more cabinets. The client wanted a light room with espresso stained cabinets. We used a light porcelain for the floor and shower walls with mosaic accents. We found the perfect marble countertop to blend with the espresso cabinets. We used satin nickel for the hardware and plumbing fixtures. A cushioned window seat was added to give our client a place to sit. We used vertical sconces for great makeup lighting.
