Show n' Tell – England Residence

For me, the England Residence started with a perfectly clean slate.  All the “dirty work” had been done – new floors, paint, and paneling. You know the term, carte blanche. The homeowners had put a lot of effort into updating their space and all I had to do was put the cherry on top. We were trying to achieve a very soft, clean and fresh feel in the room. Think lakeside without the rope and rowboats. From the ground up I selected furniture and finishes that kept the rooms airy but functional.

In the living room I set the palette with a beige and light aqua borderless rug. Borderless rugs help visually enlarge a space by allowing your eye to travel right off the edge and onto something else without stopping. I layered a petite curved back sofa with two of the most comfortable chairs we sell (the Marlena.) The room needed a coffee table but couldn’t quite fit one so I opted for a “pull up” table at the sofa instead and threw in an ottoman that could be used by anyone in the space.

The dining room is my favorite of the two rooms. There, I started with a natural sisal rug; a natural washed-out wood table to seat their four young sons and crowned it with two beautiful beaded chandeliers. The special touch in this room is the watery grasscloth wallcovering that covers the walls above the paneling. A little splurge like this set the room apart and added depth and a custom feel. My favorite moment (beside the chandeliers and wallcovering) is the art and sconces on the west wall! The combo of the large scale art and gold candleholder sconces makes this dining room feel just a little bigger not to mention they’re just really pretty.
