Tailored, textured, and tonal is how I would characterize our design concept for this stately Tudor. Taking the cues from our clients; a couple and their 2 lovely daughters, the goal for the project was to modernize several public spaces without loosing the home’s traditional roots. The clients were looking for something less formal, and I feel our understated approach fits their temperament to a tee.
In the living room, my goal was to create a stylish space that was warm and inviting. We switched out the traditional patterned carpet to sisal and incorporated some modern vintage pieces to go along with the existing traditional furniture. While the home has beautiful wood paneling throughout, I felt the overall feel of the house was slightly dark and would benefit from lightening and brightening. I kept the palette light; primarily white with pale greys and natural with very little pattern, and changed out the fixtures to create additional lighting with a contemporary feel.
The sunroom was another unused space that we transformed into a game room, where on any given day the ladies could meet for a game of canasta or bridge. This bright and cheerful space is flooded with sunlight and views of a magnificent flower garden, and is now a favorite room of the family’s.
