We were hired by our clients to give an overhaul to the front half of this 1890 Victorian. The bustling, young family of 6 loved all the original charm and architectural details in this house, but their aesthetic leaned much more casual. Our goal was to reflect our clients' love of contemporary design while being absolutely respectful of the existing architecture. To keep the overall feel fresh and updated, we blended in furnishings with a paired down, masculine look and feel. As these two rooms are in heavy use by kids and adults alike, all of the upholstery fabrics were chosen for their elevated look, but durable appeal. The zingy orange hue, selected by our client, also helps create a youthful vibe throughout.
