Alright folks - a little project update for you!
This darling project is out on beautiful Spring Lake. Our clients worked with LA Based Interior Designer Kristen Hutchins for their finishes and fixtures and wanted to bring in a local designer for the furnishings and decor. This has been especially fun because, though I've not yet met Kristen, it's felt like a sort of design collaboration!
I wanted to carry Kristen's design aesthetic through in the furnishings and decor so that the project would feel cohesive, like the same person had designed all the elements. If you take a look at Kristen's portfolio, you might notice something that is generally absent from LFID projects....did you guess it? COLOR. She is a PRO at using bold, bright, beautiful colors in her spaces.
So first, I spent some time simply studying her portfolio, the ways she blends colors, styles, and textures. Her spaces are very layered, which I love, and carry a little more of a California Glammy vibe.
a few inspiration photos provided by our client
Our client personally describes her style as "rustic glam", loving the blend of natural wood elements with modern, more feminine touches. The home is transitional in style and will have a lot of traditional elements (beautiful original wood floors, floor to ceiling windows, arches, a formal sitting area and grand central staircase that welcomes you when you enter the house), but Kristen incorporated a lot of modern glam touches into the finish package as well: Shiny metal accents, bold blue lacquer paint on the builtin shelves in the study, black interior doors throughout and black cabinets in the kitchen. It's going to be so beautiful!
So here's a little peak at what we're up to so far.
Below you can see our initial furniture selections for several of the rooms. Not all fabrics are not included here, but you can get a sense of the overall style:
Below is the layout for the great room, sitting area, and study. All three walls the the great room are floor to ceiling windows looking onto the lake, so we wanted our clients to be able to take advantage of the view from any seat in the space. The two accent chairs will be swivels to add functionality, and while it wont be used as often, we included a slightly more modern sofa in the formal sitting area by the piano for additional seating and so our clients can enjoy using the fireplace.
The master bedroom sits right above the great room and has that same stunning view looking out onto spring lake. We included a comfortable seating area with a table so our clients can read a book or enjoy their morning coffee while taking in that beautiful view. We have some beautiful custom drapery panels going into this room to highlight the soaring windows, and lots of beautiful fabrics for the chairs/bed/bedding to create the modern rustic glam look our clients are going for.
So stay tuned, friends. We're excited to be installing this project in the next couple months, and we can't wait to share the finished product with you!
