A professional couple from NYC recently purchased a weekend country home in one of my favorite NJ towns Lambertville, NJ! The federal colonial had great bones and beautiful wood working, so my job was made that much easier. The client made some major purchases like the dining room table from Ethan Allen and also purchased an area rug. They came to a halt when in her words the room is becoming so "traditional." She expressed that she wanted an eclectic design with a bold statement made with the chairs. They only wanted to paint the walls, wall coverings was not an option and also requested not to move any electrical wiring that was pre-existing. Working within these boundaries as well as a specific budget, I presented three design concepts and she chose her favorite here! We spent some time choosing one of kind elements and we also incorporated pieces from big box stores and the result is so great! Here are some before shots including the new table and rug already purchased.
And here are the after shots!
Here are some of the details I wanted to share with you....Th abstract artwork above the fireplace mantel is from one of my favorite studios - Black Crow Studios! It has become the focal point in the room and just brings out all the beautiful colors in the drapes and chairs. The antique chairs that were reupholstered are from a great local antique auction house Kamelot Auctions in Philadelphia, PA. I recommend a visit to one of their auctions! Below are some closer detail shots that I think you will like!
