When my longtime client approached me in September of 2021 and asked if I would help her renovate a townhome she had just purchased I was delighted. She said,” it’s time to downsize I am selling the big house.”
A woman who works 12 hours a day – she knows what she wants. “I want all the walls down, I want a completely open concept with a peninsula to serve buffet dinners on Friday nights with friends & family. I want all new floors, Built-ins everywhere, and all new doors and hardware. By the way – I love blue and want a fresh vibe on the interiors. She allowed me to figure it all out!
I put the team together and we got to work. Determining how to structurally finesse these ideas along with the overall design concepts. Working with a completely open floor plan is tricky – but I had an idea.
I would use color as a tool to seamlessly tie the spaces together. I broke up her 30-year-old dining room furniture set. I reimagined the Queen Ann chairs by painting them a light color. We ordered a new dining table in a traditional form and reused her classic 18th century style sideboard. The beaded blue chandelier adds whimsy, color, and drama.
