It’s time for a new project reveal…Hampton Heights! This week we’re going to be walking you through the main floor of this stunning home makeover by Reena and Alanna.
When our client first inquired with us she was looking to give her home an update. She has impeccable taste, however, years ago she heavily committed to a traditional English look for her home. She was ready for a space with a softer, more bright and airy vibe.
The living room space was large and boasted a gorgeous two-story curved bay window. Figuring out the best furniture layout in this space was tricky, as we were working with a wall of windows, a wall of millwork that housed the TV and a third feature wall with a two story fireplace. In the end we went with a low-curved sectional which provided ample seating and allowed us to maximize the space and natural light in the room.
After deciding on the size and shape of the sectional we set the tone of the space with a gorgeous wool and silk blend Persian rug from our friends at HPR Gallery! The rest of the finishes and furnishings in the space followed suit, pulling on tones and textures in the rug.[left][/left] [right][/right]
Our client’s existing furniture was in excellent condition but she had grown tired of her oversized upholstered pieces and detailed antique case-goods. With a fresh coat of paint, and a mix of new and reupholstered furniture pieces, we were able to turn her dreams of a bright and contemporary family home into a reality.
The oversized custom Kravet sectional called for a large coffee table. To help fill the space we paired two small brass tables from Jonathan Adler, with two custom designed tables in an organic grouping. These stunning custom tables were designed by Alanna, with stone sourced from Alberta Marble and Tile, and fabricated by the talented Mtharu Team here is Calgary!
Right off of the living room is the kitchen nook. When we designed this space we kept in mind that our client’s previous setup, a large glass dining table with a banquette, was very seldom used. Since their family of four usually ate at the kitchen island we felt that a casual, cocktail seating area would be more conducive to their needs.
In lieu of the traditional kitchen table we had a third custom coffee table made. We tweaked the heigh of this table to be lower than standard dining height for a more casual dining experience.
We paired the table with four custom Thayer Coggin swivel chairs upholstered in a charcoal wool with a dramatically graphic Kelly Wearstler fabric on the back side.[line]
