Refresh the first floor living areas of a classic Tudor-style home and incorporate many of the client’s favorite pieces.

Design Goal

Introduce a blue-hued color scheme to link one room to the next. Use a mix of old and new furnishings to create comfortably sophisticated living areas in a clean color palette.

Design Services

  • For the living room: developed new floor plans, expanded the seating area and added a new well- proportioned sofa.
  • Curated and reupholstered several of the client’s favorite chairs.
  • Updated lighting in the living room with new task wall and table and floor lamps.
  • Transformed the dining room with a coat of calming, familiar classic blue. Freshened the room with comfortable upholstered chairs, layered window treatments, and new area rug while keeping the heirloom table and server.
  • Added character to the underused library with large scale patterned wallpaper. Newly built blue-gray cabinetry displays client’s favorite books and objects.
  • Gave purpose to the small garden room, bringing the outdoors in.  It serves as a  cold weather casual sitting room and as a warm weather transition to the outdoor patio.
  • Created contrast with art and accessories, mixing collections and objects with new purchases to capture the client’s vision.
