During the planning and selections phases for this two-story-with-a-finished-lower-level suburban retreat home, the builder wanted to integrate on-trend finishes prominent in design throughout Central Ohio. We achieved this with industrial style pendant light fixtures, the use of ledge stone around the fireplace as well as an entire accent wall in the first floor powder bath. Gilded gold and weathered steel metal finishes and edgy black built-ins and interior doors were used throughout.
When it came to furnishing this home, our guidelines were to integrate a majority of furnishing and décor that the builder already had along with introducing some new, impactful pieces with a limited budget. For the designer, this meant purchasing smart, not cheap. The playful introduction of an oversized desk with ottoman seating in the great room as well as two candelabra floor light fixtures flanking the sofa were some of the well-thought-out purchases. The existing furniture donned black, white and cognac colors which dictated the overall color scheme of the first floor. Accents of blue, green, coral, aqua and versions of grays were sprinkled throughout the home to add subtle points of color interest.
