I have been finishing up some projects recently and thought I would give you a peek!
The house had been painted in colors more befitting a Victorian palette....lots of bold trim colors that contrasted with the wall colors. The first thing I did was to calm the wall colors so the art would be highlighted. I used a soft putty color for the trim and a warm ivory for the walls.
We wanted furnishings that paid tribute to the Prairie style aesthetic with a bit more modern edge. I designed a table for the Entry in a blackened iron with a grey limestone top. In the Living Room I found beautiful lamps from Aesthetic that were modeled after the block forms used by Frank Lloyd Wright at the Millard house in Pasadena, California. I also had leather armchairs made similar to Wright's armchairs from the Imperial Hotel. A mocha sisal area rug from Merida Meridian added texture and unified the space. (BTW...if you click on Merida's website...you can see some amazing photos of the Elle Decor Showhouse....Merida was a sponsor ya know!)
So......a little peek! Hope you enjoy.
I am very lucky to have wonderful clients. They make a project like this a pleasure. A big thanks to them both.
And I have to credit Peter Medilek for his beautiful photos! Thanks Peter!
