Happy Saturday !
I am dying .. I love this house (and client) so, so much ! Oh how it started... A few years ago, pre-covid, we were going to remodel their previous house. Had that pretty much figured out.. but then covid hit and things got put on hold .. in this case it was a happy set back ! Fast forward to earlier this year, they decided to sell that previous home and bam.. found this killer house in Myers Park. Originally built in 1938 and then renovated in 2013 by Architect Ruard Veltman. Hillary Rondero having done all the original interior design work it was a score on all counts. Hillary's choice of colors, perfect. We didn't need to change a thing, color wise just freshened up... Several of her light fixtures and details, also perfect so we kept all those ! The stars all a lined and I stepped in with all new furniture as the style of this house was so very different from their previous home. What fun !!!! These client's were game for everything I chose, which I love, love, love.
Let's take a look !!
With an all white house, we decided to add a little fun moment in the foyer with this dramatic paper, a Designer's Guild show-stopped. The runner we also changed to something darker and dog friendly!
This dining room .. besides the fact I'd like to pluck it out and place it in my house ! We kept the original color because it was perfect. Also kept the original chandelier sold with the house, it was perfect too ! Filtered in all the rest. A 60" round wood table with really cool base, and chairs we managed to snag before the lead times got stupid long. The burl sideboard is a beauty and I really wanted these stubby resin lamps. The art (Baja Man) by Ron Royals, one of my favorite photographers. We just loved him and with various forms of art throughout the home, it added a little whimsy. Killer room !
