As time passes and life changes, we don’t always use our homes exactly the way we did when they were first decorated. Maybe the kids were young and the space was designed with durability in mind while entertaining was low on the list of priorities. Add to that the fact that generations shift and, like it or not, we may find we’ve inherited a parent’s furniture.
The kids grow up and suddenly you find you’re using your home in an entirely different manner. Your space must evolve with your stage of life and, meanwhile, your new acquisitions need to blend with your decor.
As was the case with this recently completed project. This client asked us to breathe new life into inherited furniture and make it work in their space. We transformed an empty room into an adult lounge for entertaining. We added throw pillows, a new coffee table, benches for extra seating and a window treatment for privacy. On the back wall, we added a stunning bar, a mirror over the mantel, fireplace screen, and photo gallery wall. The fireplace was original brick but was painted to lighten it up while keeping the concrete mantel and trim.
We call it a Residential Reset. Is your home ready for one?
