“Decoration is really about creating a quality of life, and a beauty in that life that nourishes the soul, that makes life beautiful. That’s what all this is about, not just what’s in and what’s out”
– Albert Hadley
What’s a designer to do when there’s a great style divide between two funky spouses? One loves all things super modern, and the other’s dream home lies within the realm of tradition. So we took everything back to basics. Inspired by primary colors, we wanted to create a gorgeous balance between traditional blues and yellows and contemporary, modern reds.
Her dining room chair faces an abstract art wall, and his faces his beautiful wife and a classic nude painting in the background. It’s true what they say, opposites really do attract! We designed common ground created by the play of primary colors and contemporary furniture. With a sexy leather finished granite island, a glass beaded wall and stunning lucite Louis Ghost chairs, we created the perfect transitional space, making sure this couples’ home was equally represented by both styles.
We also wanted to be able to convert their home from warm family dinners and romantic nights in to a space utilized for fabulous parties and tons of friends. There needed to be plenty of seating space but without looking overcrowded, while staying within the contemporary and modern realm – the lucite chairs were a divine fit. Transparency creates a bright and open space, and transparent light fixtures produce stunning ambient lighting for a fun party or cozy night in.
