A Little Color Goes a Long Way

Alyse Hufford

I recently met with a new client (thank you Emily for the referral) whose busy family of five lives in a lovely Cape Cod style home that has already been remodeled pretty extensively.  They've already painted the exterior grey, overhauled their kitchen, baths, and basement.  They came to me and asked that I make some interior updates to their living and dining room spaces as their current furniture is a little heavy and dark.  While they aren't fans of vintage furniture and are hesitant about color, I'm hoping to convince them that a little color can go a long way and I may be able to sneak in a vintage accessory or two.

Because their dark brown leather couch will stay (I attempted to find a similar couch for this design board) I had to find complimentary colors while keeping with their black and white scheme.  I created a space that exudes a more glamorous feel with the chippendale chairs and a glass coffee and console table.  

For their second living room option, I kept with an all black, white, and blue color scheme that evokes a beachy vibe with lots of texture.  The jute and sheepskin rug will blend nicely with their wide plank grey washed wood floors.  And I was still able to bring in some gold with the sunburst mirror and antelope bookends.

The client has reviewed the boards and is narrowing her options.  We may tweak a chair selection or two but I believe we captured the look she is going for.  So which is your favorite board - Option #1 or Option #2?

A Northwest Ranch Gets a Revamp

Alyse Hufford

I recently met with a client who over the next few months, will have her Northwest ranch renovated to include a new master bedroom and on suite bathroom.  The existing bedrooms will also be reconfigured to carve out more space for her children and a home office. I'm thrilled she contacted me for some design advice and in the coming months, I will be assisting her in selecting everything from lighting fixtures to a mid-century modern inspired vanity to create a serene and classic bath that will withstand the test of time.

With the new addition also comes a revamp of her current living room.  She asked me to give her room a mid-century modern facelift, reminiscent of what you'd see in a Cliff May house.  She already has beautiful hardwood floors and some mid century inspired furniture (the couch, coffee table, and side tables will stay),  so I will be focusing on enhancing what she already has.

I created two concept boards which give a similar vibe but different color schemes.  The first option plays off her yellow gourd lamp (she owns) and adds an air of sophistication with the brass accents.

The second option pulls in more color and exudes more of a Palm Springs vibe.  She asked to see an option with the room accented in blues and greens.

I selected chairs upholstered in a sweet pea green and paired them with gorgeous peacock blue Robert Abbey lamps and a shag rug.  Hints of brass, lucite, and walnut furniture round out the look.

So which look do you prefer?  Which option would you choose?  I'd love your feedback!
