“Design is the contrast of the core of limitations therefore there are no boundaries. It is simply an interpretation of creativity.” – Jenaiha Woods
We love all of our design projects, and it is bittersweet when we finish a home. It is thrilling to make our clients happy and have a mutual sense of satisfaction upon completion. Which brings us to the denouement of our El Royale makeover. We loved working in this space and the living room was the grand finale after transforming the bedroom and dining room. The original moulding from the 1920’s created a beautiful framework juxtaposed against modern furnishings with some touches of vintage. With a neutral base of white throughout the room, it allowed the colorful accents to shine as bright as Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds.
BEFORE | VINTAGE OTTOMAN
This muslin colored ottoman was anything but posh. Recovered with new fabric and oodles of tufted buttons and a double row of nail heads makes this piece glam and ready for lounging. A musician at heart, these Warhol-esque Beatles prints worked magic in the room. An antique brass studded steamer trunk made an excellent storage vessel.
Can’t get cozier than cashmere! A fuchsia toned throw from Nepal made the perfect accent pillows next to these bright beauties in John Robshaw’s Kota Oyster.
BEFORE | CANE CHAIRS
Tuft, tuft and away! These vintage cane chairs become plump buttoned seats in crisp white Belgian linen. Embroidered Cypress pillows from our 2014 collection worked beautifully with the magenta and plum hues throughout the room. A white hide rug keeps the space looking fresh and clean. Of course we snatched up the brass Hollywood Regency side table when we found just the base, amazing what new glass will do! Large and in charge, this beveled glass mirror perfectly reflects the other side of the room. White is wonderful, mixed with a bold monochromatic color throughout the room the sky’s the limit.
