I loved working on Ivonne’s place because of the simple lines of the architecture and the freshness of her home.
Working with white, creams, and a neutral palette was an elegant concept for a modern cozy space.
The dining room is ever more formal with a Robert Abbey oil rubbed bronze chandelier. Bronze finials, drapery rods, harware and locksets complete the look on crisp white moldings and trim.
I loved these cozy taupe and gray pillows made of soft cotton mixed with a rich fur throw. The leather ottoman pictured below adds another layer of unexpected warmth to the living space.
It is hard to imagine that we have been working on her place since July because it all has gone by so quickly. From the beginnings, replacing the existing lighting with recessed, adding entryway lights, and a new coat of paint.
Most times, my favorite thing to change in an interior to make a dramatic impace can be lighting and simply a new coat of paint. Thankfully, Ivonne had recently had a sun light added to the living space, which only accentuated our recessed lighting upgrade.
Other details, like our favorite chair recovered and painted, transformed the entryway. The woven basket which doubles as storage for umbrellas add charm to the vignette.
Lucky of us Ivonne already had great art and a beautiful mirror for the dining space. All we needed to add was a midcentury walnut floating frame to truly accent the painting.
Never fear, if you are interested in her place and want to see more. We still have photo gallery wall and tufted bench in the works!
