When Steve and I start a project our goal is not just to design a beautiful home. Even more importantly, we want to create a home where our clients are comfortable. We also want our clients to feel like their home reflects their personality.
When we started working with Blake and Beth, their house was beautiful but it was devoid of any evidence of their interests and passions.
One of the first rooms that Blake and Beth wanted us to work on was their family/game room. On our first visit this is what their game room looked like.
Blake wanted to create a room with a pool table where the entire family could hang out with friend. Because they love neutrals, we selected a gray felt pool table and added a Luxe Silver Topaz rug by Merida.
Little by little, the space started to look like the game room that they envisioned.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the room....
We needed to warm up the family room!
Again, we added natural woven blinds to visually add height to the doors. We used our own simple iron drapery rods paired with Restoration Hardware drapery panels in a "Sand" linen, which compliment the heather gray tones in the rug and baskets.
Draperies were also installed in the living room....
Not only do they give the room a finished feel, they also keep out the harsh west sun in the afternoon!
Beth was just finishing a meeting when we arrived. It was great to see that she was making use of her Swedish pieces...
I can tell that Beth, Blake and their family feel really comfortable in their home. Anyone who walks into their home immediately gets a sense of Beth and Blake's personalities.
We are now officially done with their downstairs and are starting to brainstorm wonderful ideas for their master bedroom and Beth's office/guest room.
