We are so excited to reveal the first glimpse of our 7th Avenue Project! This beautiful family home had just undergone a full renovation when we came into the project, and we were instantly inspired by the modern Spanish vibes it gave us. Our clients reached out to us to select all the furnishings and window treatments for the project, to help them turn the blank slate into a welcoming and comfortable family home.
Today, we are sharing the finished entry way and great room. When we began this project, the homeowners had a few pieces of art that they wanted to keep and incorporate into the new design. We picked a couple large pieces for these two rooms and built the color story around them. We love when our clients ask us to incorporate art that they’ve collected over the years; it adds a level of personality that is difficult to replicate.
In the entryway, we opted for a round table that will display seasonal greenery and, realistically, catch keys. Even in such a small space, we were able to create a layered look with the textured rug, wooden table, and metal and ceramic accents. We carried that thought through the space to the sitting area with a metal bench, patterned pillows, and a large plant. The aforementioned artwork found the perfect home hanging above.
The existing built-ins are the real showstopper in the great room, and we were so excited to get to style them. We are seeing deep, rich hues of blue everywhere right now and the shade our clients had selected is equal parts on-trend and timeless. We kept most of the room in neutral creams and grays with accents in gold and black. The layered rugs add a lot of warmth to this room, which is exactly what you want in a room built for family time. With hosting in mind, we added in some additional seating. The room is long and narrow, so two custom ottomans allow for extra seating that double as foot stools.
While the great room has a distinctly modern aesthetic, we also threw in some more classic pieces and patterns. There’s no shortage of texture in this space, either, and we incorporated some fresh florals from Florals by Sadie to add some color and life. We sourced some sculptural decor for the sofa table that add height without blocking the site lines from the adjacent kitchen. Every angle in the room has a unique focal point while seamlessly blending together.
Working with clients to create a home is such a fun and personal process. We love imagining how this family will live in and with their home in the years to come. Stay tuned as we reveal more of our work on the 7th Avenue Project next week!
