When working with our clients—a blended family of eight—creating a design that appealed to the entire family and their lifestyle was essential. They have very refined tastes but are also warm and authentic, so it was important for their home to feel fresh and approachable.
Working closely with the architect, we took cues from the classic Colonial design of the home. First, we focused on the home’s coffered and cathedral ceilings, generous crown molding, paneling, and shiplap. Then we modified these elements with cleaner, pared-down profiles that keep them from feeling too heavy.
