The largest issue in the space was the off-center placement of the fireplace on the back wall. In order to address this issue, furniture was arranged in a circular seating group which served as a distraction from the fireplace placement and made the room feel balanced. In addition, this arrangement took advantage of the predominately square shape of the room and encouraged conversation, whether enjoying the fireplace or the view through the window.
Stacked, lighted cabinets were customized to replace the door panel design with glass. Glass size could have been larger to maximize light and view. Going forward I’d make sure the design of stacked, lighted cabinets would incorporate as much glass as possible.
I always endeavor to incorporate items that mean something to my homeowners and reflect their personalities: their collections, artwork, family photos, etc. These homeowners, a retired executive and his artist wife, have a keen eye and had items they had collected made into lamps for the space that work perfectly. While difficult to see in the photo, small shims were placed between some boards during construction to create random “cracks.” This gave it the appearance of having settled over time and kept it from looking new. Imperfect perfection!
Initially, the homeowner wanted to use the same color scheme stemming from the area rug already in the room. Everything we looked at wasn't exciting since they had lived with that color scheme for so long. One day when we were talking in their kitchen I noticed a beautiful area rug in an adjacent seating area. We chose to use that in the bedroom, and the design process took off from there!
