The entry, formal lounge and dining areas of this home were styled transitional, a mix of classic and traditional. We choose this style because our client had some existing traditional pieces of furniture that were going to be staying in the room, yet our client didn’t want the room to feel old fashioned.
For the entry we recommended a simple round mirror and hung it so that it reflected the beautiful artwork in the lounge room behind. We had the hall table custom made for this space, it has a slightly clean line contemporary feel which was needed as this area transitions through to the family room. The decorator pieces are our clients and have personal meaning.
The formal lounge and dining has new carpet, wall colour, shutters, custom upholstered new lounges, armchairs, accent table, lamp, art and side table (isn’t it sweet?) these were all recommended by us to coordinate with the existing piano and coffee table. We choose a transitional interior style for this room so that it would compliment the existing traditional pieces. A new custom built display unit is also in this room holding my client’s collection of decorative ornaments. The art was chosen from our client’s brothers portfolio of photos from European travels, this really personalises the space as she really feels a connection to them.
In the formal dining room we arranged a gallery wall as our client had a collection of professional family photos taken and wanted to display them. We recommended frames to coordinate with the family photos but not be too contrived with thanks to our talented framer and the results are amazing. Our art installer loved hanging it too, was a breeze. Two more photos from our client’s brother hang side by side at the end of the dining room – stunning!
Last but by no means least the family room. We arranged for a custom rug to be made for this room which acoustically made a big difference but also visually softens the room and makes it more inviting. We chose a statement abstract piece of art and it’s as though it was made for the space. An open frame side table and lamp complement the armchair and create a nice sitting nook. An indoor palm finishes the look.
Our client said when we were leaving the final styling session that her home looks amazing, she couldn’t believe the transformation!
