A few weeks ago, we shared this beautiful dining room space, with you. We had such a great time mixing patterns, lighting and textures in the room. We also carried the palette through their family room and kitchen nook!
In case you missed it, here is a quick image of the dining room, (and here is the full story)
When we designed the rest of the spaces adjacent, we wanted to carry the same color tones and pattern mixing throughout. We certainly didn't want to repeat any patterns either. So we got to work pulling different options for lighting, drapery, and pillows.
In the entry way we used this really amazing chandelier, it truly is a work of art. The mercury glass and metal make a fantastic statement piece when you walk in the door. I was so happy when our client approved this piece, I may have danced a little!
Our client's existing furniture was rather on the darker and more traditional side, so we wanted to lighten up the space and give it some modern elements and interest. Our common color throughout their home was a beautiful watery blue hue.
For the drapery we chose a fabric with a lovely allover paisley pattern, with the slightest sparkle in the thread. We paired it with a golden linear pattern, water blue texture and fun trim details on the pillows. All together it compliments their existing area rug so nicely.
We couldn't resist the scale like pattern of this table lamp. It is such a beautiful piece that is subtle and eye catching all at once!
Because our client lives on the water on Boca Ciega Bay, we of course wanted to embrace the waterfront lifestyle, without throwing starfish and seahorse all over. So we chose to accessorize with a few coral pieces and sea creatures rather than allow them to be direct focal points. Another thing that I love to accessorize with is old books, there are so many varieties of colors and styles to have fun with!
In the kitchen nook, we wanted to keep having fun with the pattern mixing and watery blues, however, we decided to introduce a fun pop of crimson and coral. Our client decided to keep their existing light fixture, so we decided to modernize the space with bolder patterns in the custom window treatments and fabric we chose to recover the chairs with.
All in all we are very pleased with how their space turned out! It is a lovely marriage of traditional and modern, with a healthy dose of pattern mixing to make this quite the lively transitional space!
