Collecting Compliments


After decades of married life, these “green” clients were eager to update their home, but they didn’t want to start from scratch. They asked us to re-purpose, reupholster and reuse their beloved antiques, family heirlooms and numerous collections while creating a new, sophisticated mood that’s relaxed and comfortable.  Above all, the home had to be touchable and livable, especially for visits from their four grown children and the grandchildren. We discovered too that they are outdoorsy people – he is a hunter and she loves to garden – and music plays a big role in their lives, so we were careful to reference all of that in the design scheme. Though much has changed, this home still tells our clients’ story, but in a fresh, uniquely personal way.
