It’s one part Moroccan and one part British gentleman’s club part one part Belgian….
We’re not sure how to label it, but it was fun pulling this design together.
It was a first for us: combing aqua + apple green (the color of their kitchen) + red/ coral
Maybe one day we’ll have “real” photos (we have some now–scroll to bottom), in the meantime, here are some quite grainy phone pics. Still had to share anyhoo.
It is one of those loooonnnng living rooms. We thought it’d be best to split it up for various uses:
A reading area in the back of the room where you can have a glass of wine, read a book, and gaze out into the backyard. (In all honesty, they might not use this area much since it is just two of them, but we wanted it to be pretty to look at
Our new intern, Lisa, styled the table. Oh, we need to post about her. She’s a gem.
The middle of the room has a nook just the right size for a little office.
Campaign-style wooden desk, mod white chair, and Anisa’s custom landscape. How David Bromstad is she creating custom art for each client? Love it!!
The middle of the room is where, I believe, they’ll live. They can rest, watch tv, read, whatever. (great burlap union jack stools from Target!)
Yes, we readily admit this is a prop. But a cute prop, no?
The front of the room is really used as storage and a pretty wall to greet you as you enter.
We used our client’s grandmothers chair and just recovered the seat. Well, Karen recovered the seat!
Before we come over for an install day, we ask our clients to leave a box or two of stuff we can use. They had a great selection! She discovered hese old antlers in her garage. Her grandfather-in-law was a hunter and this was one of his trophies. We thought it was fun that they are sentimental & trendy. Why not incorporate them? Anisa killed this wall–love it.
We wanted to balance the room by having the random collage in the front and the symmetrical/ minimal bookcases in the back.
It’s been a fun week but a full week. We’re pooped.
Time for receipts, returns & rest.
