As a newly engaged couple making their first home together, these clients wanted to blend their individual styles and maximize their space so they would love being at home alone or with friends. From contemporary upholstery and traditional carpets to exotic touches and vintage accessories, my goal was to create a lively and welcoming space that both could enjoy. Adjacent to the dining area and kitchen, the entryway features a vintage sideboard that does double duty as a cocktail bar and buffet during parties. To manage the wardrobes of two professionals, I installed a mirrored storage wall in the bedroom that both handles extra clothing and bounces needed light back into the room. The crowd-friendly color palette of caramels and shades of green is followed through down to the custom curtains and pillows that soften the look. (Chris Johnson Pictures)
