A simple neutral palette was developed as backdrop for both new and collected furnishings and added layers of art and accessories and simple window treatments. We managed and executed the purchasing of  fixtures  and furnishings for all rooms varying finishes in each depending on users. In addition, we bridged the outdoors with seating and dining areas to accommodate entertaining on the screened in porch.
