We are so excited to finally have the chance to share with you one of our favorite big client projects! This sweet family reached out to New South Home before they even moved to Charlotte and asked us for a full house paint consultation. We were happy to help create a game plan for the home. Once the family moved from Ohio, they were so happy with the way the paint colors came together and the transformation that occurred they wanted to begin working room by room to reflect their current style and features one of their favorite colors, navy.
Family Room |
We began with the Family room, which in most homes is the gathering place, the location where most of the “living” happens. In order to transition to the families updated style preferences, we decided it would be best to start from scratch with the furniture.
We brought in a neutral sofa from Lee Industries covered in Crypton fabric. With a family of 3 kids under the age of 9, we knew that the furniture needed to be quality and but kid proof. They loved the idea of using bright color and bold geometric prints and we were thrilled with the idea of stepping outside the typical neutral palette.
These Navy recliners were both comfortable, functional for television watching, and the perfect spot to add in our color. The New South Home Bamboo Geo print lumbars were the perfect pop of green for the chairs and gave us the geometric print we were looking for.
In order to enhance the dramatic ceiling height, we went with a floor to ceiling drapery panel which also softened the space. Those bright green chests were placed side by side to create a sofa console and was the perfect piece of furniture to tie in the geometric pattern and bold green color pallet.
In the clients previous home, they had a large traditional cabinet housing the television but wanted to update their look with a modern built in, so we had this custom cabinet made to include the television and provide storage.
The space really came together as a great location for entertaining and reflected the updated style they were looking for in their new home.
Kids Play Room |
Once the main family room was complete, the family felt it was important to have an inviting space for their kids to feel like they could call their own, so the next room on the list was the Playroom/Bonus Room.
They LOVED the idea of a statement wall and chose that particular wall because you weren’t able to see it from the formal foyer but added a fun element for the kids.
The kids were BIG movie fans, so we framed their movie posters to fill the walls with films they loved. The majority of the furniture we found at Ikea, and the fabrics were Sunbrella, making them easy to clean and gave mom and dad peace of mind!
The amount of natural light coming in the room was amazing, and we did’t want to take that away from the space, so we had custom valances made for the windows to soften the space, but maintain the natural light.
The “window seat” was a custom built toy box bench that allowed for additional storage.
Overall the space was the perfect kid friendly room with plenty of toy storage and a great room for movie watching and creative play!
Dining Room |
Dining Rooms can be tricky, they aren’t a room that is necessarily used frequently, but many times it’s one of the first rooms you see when entering the home, setting the tone for the rest of the house. Our client initially wanted to keep their dining table and chairs, but it was well loved and we were unable to refurbish it. Along with their shift in style, we knew we had to update the furniture in order to marry the style with the rest of the updated home.
As a family of 5, we knew we would nee to seat at least 8, so we went with a large Table from the Belgian Oak Collection from Bernhardt. The chairs, and Buffet are also from the same collection.
With a new table and a gorgeous formal chandelier from Crystorama, the space really began to take shape. We used Benjamin Moores Hale Navy in Matte and Satin finishes to create the stripe wall affect. We wanted to keep the space bright despite the dark wall color, so we made a custom valance and drapery in a John Robshaw fabric by Duralee to add pattern.
We had custom host and hostess chairs made in our Signature Linen Natural with a Scroll Embroidery in Taupe.
We kept the decor and accessorizing simple and clean which made the space functional. We knew that clearing the buffet of accessories would be a pain, so a simple pedestal bowl on the buffet and low hydrangeas as a center piece over our monogramed table runner was the perfect addition.
We have so much more to share with you from this gorgeous home! We will be sharing phase II of the home soon, so be sure to check back for more.
