Three sons wanted to do a complete design job from start to finish for their parents. We were given a brand new completely empty house and hired to turn it into a warm and inviting home. The only situation was it all had to be done in 8 weeks including all Christmas decorations.
“This is truly an amazing story! This beautiful home was created as a surprise”
The clients are a prestigious family from Ghana and we wanted to include some color and ethnic flavor that would remind them of home.
The home was specifically designed not only for comfort of their parents year-round but for family visits with children and grandchildren.
The large transitional two-story home features an entry with a linen covered chest of drawers accented by a decorative mirror. An iron cow hide bench is incorporated into the entry adding an authentic touch. The custom stair runner created in herringbone tone on tone taupe carpet leads the way into a fun, relaxing game room.
The game room has a state of the art pool table with an interchangeable top for ping pong. Tonal damask antique ottomans add character to the game room along with the tribal upholstered high-backed game table chairs.
The guest suites are rich in textures with a pop of color. Comfortable seating groups are arranged in cream and taupe scheme with ethnic prints in espresso and orange. The dining room table has a gorgeous ceruse wood top, that is rich and practical complimented by high back wing chairs. The pattern of the custom Persian rug and cuba cloth add an ethnic touch to the room.
The master bedroom is light and airy, the silk draperies add a high formality. For color, we added warm ethnic pops of color on the throws accentuated by woven table lamps.
The boys guest suite creates a welcoming environment that comfortable sleeps up to eight boisterous boys. The Faceted lamp with linen shade adds playful textures without being too juvenile. Kilim print ottomans and ethnic striped fabric bedding provide a relaxed casual feel.
The girls room also creates a welcoming stay with fun floral prints and mercury glass lamps. The spunky tibetan sheepskin ottomans create a little taste of home.
The terrace off the game room is outfitted in sunbrella fabric and resin wicker furniture with mixed accents of aluminum and wicker, a perfect get away overlooking the pool. The outdoor area is like an oasis from chaise lounges by the pool to social group seating. The vibrant orange accent pillows playfully tie in the living room colors. The pool is resort style with LED features centered by a fully equipped outdoor kitchen, perfect for large family gatherings.
