About This Project:
|Objective:||This client wanted a comfortable space to relax and entertain when she is in the city. She wanted lots of original art and vibrant color.|
|Challenges:||This client loves collecting art and also loves to support local artists. So we had the pleasure of finding art for the entire condo that felt uplifting to her. She even chose artwork of my own! Providing lighting to highlight each piece of art was important. |
Located on the 11th floor around other high rise condos, we also needed appropriate window treatments to provide privacy while admitting light. The client wanted this to be very minimal.
It has 11 ft. high ceilings, but is not that large of a room, so we wanted to take advantage of the height, while keeping the room feeling human in scale. Very narrow shape offered furniture arrangement issues for enjoying the view, the fireplace, and watching tv.
The balcony is small and is what you see right outside the window, so it needed to coordinate with the living area.
She also needed a small office space to work on her laptop in the living room.
One inspiration for my client was a wall treatment she had noticed in a store with raised wall panels that looked rather raw and industrial. I needed to find a way to incorporate this idea into her home while blending it in with the more polished and refined look of the furnishings.
|Results:||We both had so much fun shopping for art by local artists. My client also saw artwork of my own that she loved, so I did a commission painting in her favorite colors and it is hanging above the sectional. By installing a monorail light system we were able to put a spot light on each piece of art while also providing ample ambient light. A George Kovacs floor lamp provides decorative impact and great reading light near the sectional.|
On the windows we used solar shades in a nearly opaque weave that matches the very pale stone color of the walls. When pulled down, they offer privacy, but still admit light. In their open position they seem to disappear. We left the top windows free of treatments.
Strong horizontal lines of the cream leather sectional from JD Madison and art behind it provide a human scale anchor that balances out the strong vertical lines and height of the fireplace wall and windows. The West Elm dove gray cable rug brings the fireplace stone colors onto the floor.
The client did not want or need a dining table, so we were able to use a sectional and just one armchair to provide seating that offers views to the outside, the fireplace and also is comfortable for watching TV. A glass desk and curvy chair from Dania provide minimal and elegant office space in a small niche to the side of the fireplace.
By using Ross Lovegrove's Supernatural Chairs in a bright orange we continued the color palette to the exterior and draw the eye outside. We also covered the small balcony in exterior slatted wood deck tiles that echo the color of the dark interior wood television console. Custom planters offer some protection from the wind and give a little bit of seclusion while seated outside.
