It all began with an Ottoman...
When a young couple purchase their first home in North Texas, they utilize their post college and early marriage furnishings to dress the house. Between building a career and having children, decorating usually falls to a lower a priority in the family. The desire for a beautiful and swoon worthy interior are there, but the time, funds, and knowledge to achieve it are usually not.
But once the kids are headed to middle school and the fog of parenting young children begins to lift, the couple has time to take a breath and consider all the house could be...in the right hands. They have been saving for this project and are concerned that they will not be able to create the lovely, cohesive, and “finished” look they crave.
Enter an interior designer. After an initial consultation full of ideas and brainstorming, they commit to lay their dreams in her hands. At a time when products are slow in coming, and options are everywhere, this required trust, indeed. But it was rewarded!
The design with an ottoman they already had—barely used, and in a great color. The decorator matched the custom fabrics chosen for the swivel chairs and the sofa to that bright pop of energy. With a dog and 2 school age children, a deep sofa in a performance fabric was selected for frequent cuddling. The transitional rug is soft underfoot, but forgiving in its pattern to hide everyday drips; beautiful, but doesn’t break the bank. The raffia fronted media cabinet brings an organic element to the space and helps keep the vibe fresh and youthful. The mid-century gold lamp and modern faux yucca plant anchor the space. And no space would be complete without a centerpiece: a gold tray with African beads of recycled sea glass and an orchid. Looks great on the kitchen table, too, when feet need to go up on that ottoman!
