Private Residence

This is a client's home in Provo that we are working on. We recently completed the Family Room and Eat-In Kitchen area and wanted to share a few photos. (I must not have loaded the before photos onto the computer, so you'll just have to enjoy the after shots...)

This is the eat-in kitchen with the entry in the background. You can see the new wall sconce next to the closet door. It is from Jonathan Adler's collection through Robert Abbey. The new light fixture over the dining table is a soft brass ring with botanical-like candles.

I love working with this client, she's not afraid to take a risk and do something unexpected. She is very fashion forward. Although she jokes about buying this Ivory Home, there is almost nothing left of it that feels like the rest of the neighborhood.

I love the lines of this Coco Sofa! It is from a group out of L.A. that builds furniture for us domestically. You'd never accuse this sofa of wearing 100% polyester... but she is! This is one way to do it and make it look and feel high-end.

The family room entertainment wall was originally only finished in sheetrock with rounded corners going into the cubbies. We had a finish-worker put a face-frame and adjustable shelves in paint-grade materials. We had the interior of the cubbies painted a dark shade of gray; the face is painted a crisp shade of white to relate to the wall of white shuttered windows adjacent to it. We filled the room with a collection of furnishings to make it feel like it wasn't bought all at the same time out of one box.

A reclaimed coffee table is at the center of the room - this piece is family friendly with a worn-in look already. You don't have to be too cautious about having a young family and entertaining around it. The two sofas are in hard-wearing fabrics, one in a Bella-Microfiber, the other in leather. The pillows marry the colors from the rug and add some pattern and interest.

All in all, the client is happy, the room is successful and suits their needs, and the space is fun to be in because it has such interesting things to say!
