Project: I love when I’m contacted to help a family pull together their living spaces but still have it look like them — unique and stylish, and a reflection of their travels and the memories they’ve brought to their home. We used several pieces that this client had — the coffee table that was a wedding gift; the stools that were from their wedding; art they bought on a dime on a trip to China after law school — and updated with just the right pieces for the room and for them.
Design Challenge: The layout was tricky in the living room! While the space is a large space, with the radiator and the pathway to the dining room, it’s not actually very wide — especially with two young boys running through! We created a seating space great for everyday, with plenty of runway space, and then placed a couple of awesome chairs “waiting in the wings” (the foyer) to be pulled in for a larger group.
Best Part: I love all the pieces alone — that green chair, the vintage cabinet, the Craigslist dining chairs, the art — and together in the space. It really feels like their home!
