So Fresh and So Clean Clean
We already shared the entry, music room, and office design of this home. Today we wanted to share our plans for the family room and master bedroom. To refresh your memory, our client built and furnished her home 8 years ago and was wanting to simplify and freshen up her space using a palette of cream and gray. We needed the new plans to work with the existing cherry finish trim and cabinetry and wrought iron railing. To start off the walls and ceiling went cream (one of our favs Benjamin Moore OC-45 Swiss Coffee) and the plush carpet was swapped out for a tight looped wool. With our fresh backdrop ready to go it was time to layer in the furniture.
The furniture plan was a but tricky because we were working with an existing TV cabinet and fireplace. Since the TV watching wasn't a priority we arranged the furniture with the fireplace as the focal point. The sofa we selected was quite deep which made it impossible to have the seating group centered on the fireplace. To make it feel more balanced we opted for long thing acrylic coffee table with a ottoman tucked beneath.
The furniture we selected all have classic lines with a bit of twist. Since the backdrop was light and airy we brought in some contrast with black light fixtures. Again the fixtures have classic lines but are kept clean and simple. We are loving the way the acrylic coffee table adds some funk to a space which could easily feel formal or a bit one note.
There was quite the balancing act when we chose our finishes. We wanted the space to feel elegant but not too formal and stuffy. We brought in a bit of a casual feel with striped flat weave rug and linen sofa, pillows, and roman shades. A formal touch came with our velvet tufted ottoman and patterned cut velvet pillows. Since our ottoman has a slight teal cast to it we are playing with the idea of bringing in some teal pillows.
We are still working on the final layer of accessories (which in my opinion is the layer that brings in the most personality and texture) but here are a couple sneak peeks at the new space.
You'll have to wait to see the final shots. We're taking our time on the accessories because they are what is really going to bring this space to life.
The master bedroom has a bit of a different story than the rest of the house. The goal was the same (freshen up and simplify) but we kept it really simple with a tone on tone white and cream color palette with accents of gold. We wanted the space to be inviting, relaxing, and romantic.
Texture was key in this space. A fluffy faux fur rug is layered on a cream wool carpet. A cream linen headboard contrasts with the flat wall paint. And sparkly gold accents are the cherry on top.
We'll be sure to share photos of the finished space as soon as we can.
