One of the best parts of working with diverse clients is that also includes their design style. I never design the same space twice- simply because every design is custom to the persona living there and the style they love. I talk and study the designs they love, and incorporate the same elements into their personal space.
It’s custom just for them.
This gracious Texas ranch house was full of lovely architectural details, but its tired entryway and office were not setting the right tone.
They worked in this spare room turned home office, and needed it to be beautiful and functional.
These homeowners are so gracious, and they wanted their guests to feel at home as soon as they walked through the door, so bringing in an accent wall trimmed in wood was a good fit.
I love including antiques mixed with newer decor.
I have found to use them effectively, think about how they can fit into the color scheme and design aesthetic of the room.
You can use antiques as the main focal point of the room, or you can use them as accents to give the room an old-world charm.
You can also mix and match antiques with more modern pieces to create a unique look.
For example, you can use antique furniture with modern art, wall treatments, and fabrics.
Another great way to incorporate antiques into your home decor is to repurpose them. For example, an old chest of drawers can be used as a console table, or an old dresser can be used as a unique entertainment center.
Finally, don’t be afraid to be creative with your antiques! Some of the most interesting pieces are found in unexpected places. Haven’t you found that to be true?
