Paul’s Place

Read Design

IMG_2261.JPEG

We’re nearing the end of another design project and we’re thrilled with the way its turning out! It all started with Paul stopping by our showroom in search of Hunter Douglas window coverings for his new spec home. Upon walking in he saw that we are not only certified Hunter Douglas specialists, we are full service interior designers. He said to us “this is great! A one stop shop!”

We began the project with the window coverings. He likes softness at the window and has a more casual, transitional style. His biggest concerns were light control and privacy. He also wanted easy operation, functionality and of course style. Our first recommendation was that the operation system be UltraGlide Click and Walk Away because it is an easy to use lift system when PowerView isn’t an option. Our second recommendation was to use Silhouette Shadings because they offer the most light control options and have that softness Paul so wanted. In the closed position we took care of the nighttime privacy concern, in the tilted position we combated daytime privacy while keeping the view, and when he wants a completely unobstructed view he can simply roll the shades all they way up into the headrail. Our final recommendation after getting to know Paul was to use a bold color on the shades and not do a “safe” white. We set out to his new home with samples in hand to find the perfect color. We chose a “greige” with a deeply textured sheer called Brio Basilica from the Alustra Collection of Silhouette. It goes perfectly with the with tile in the kitchen, the trim on the outside of the house, and the texture creates another design demention. Because the home is open concept, we decided to put the Silhouettes in every room. What an amazing look and in complete agreement with Paul’s style.

Our next step was to design the drapery panels to compliment the shades and frame the windows. We found a beautiful fabric with a pattern that was in keeping with the other design elements of the home. These soft treatments really make a point to draw out the colors of the shades and add a flowing pattern that makes a statement.

Then we moved on to finish out the home with a clean, uncluttered look.

In their dining room, we put together a 72”round table that comfortably seats eight. We custom made the upholstered chairs that accompany it. The chairs are simple in design, but the nail heads give a hint of sophistication. We finished off this room with a large mirror and a pair of sconces.

The entry in this home is huge so we used a console table that is unique in design and large enough to fit this space. It can even be used as a buffet if they have a big party. You won’t find this piece just anywhere! We topped it with 3 candle holers and 2 tall lamps. We also put artwork above with neutral colors and hints of gold.

In the study, we found this beautiful bookcase to put behind his desk.

In the living room we pulled together a large rug that has all the neutral colors of the home in it, 2 throw pillows and 3 panel art. We are planning on adding more drapery panels for that added softness in this room as well.

This has been a very fun project and we have enjoyed working with Paul so much! We are so happy everything is pulling together nicely and we love the clean look.

If you are buying a new home or just want to give your home an update, give us a call! We would love to help you create a space that you will love to come home to.

Fresh Ideas For Your Home - Indoor/Outdoor Spaces

Read Design

Blending your indoor and outdoor living spaces enhances summer enjoyment.

A seamless transition will extend your indoor environment, creating an outdoor living area that feels like an extension of your indoor space. This makes for a seamless and unified transition. It’s a synthesis of style that blends outdoor and indoor living. 

If you focus on your outdoor living space as much as your indoor design style, you’ll gain a welcoming look that makes it easy to glide effortlessly from indoors to outdoors and back. You’ll find that you use your outdoor space more, whether it’s a deck, terrace, garden or large backyard. 

So many materials work well both for indoors and out, including teak, stainless steel, rattan, wicker, easy-care fabrics, glass and more.  Focus on beauty, as well as function, for your outdoor living elements, so they don’t look like an afterthought, but rather a design style that’s coordinated with your interior decorating plan. 

Some design ideas to link your adjacent indoor and outdoor spaces include:

  • Use similar colors, materials and styles inside and out. 

  • Introduce a few soft surfaces outdoors, such as rugs, throw pillows and soft upholstery. 

  • Hang soft, translucent window fashions that make the outdoors look closer. 

  • Add matching accent pieces indoors and out, including table linens, lanterns, candles and flower arrangements. 

  • Plan adequate sun covering outdoors, using umbrellas, awnings or a built shading structure, so you’re willing to keep the windows and window treatments open without sun damage to furniture and floors. 

  • Use ceramic stools, durable tables and easy-clean dining chairs that you can move in and out as the need arises.

  • Use Corradi Outdoor Screen Shades to keep the bugs off while enjoying the fresh air.

Bring your outdoor and indoor living spaces together for summer relaxation with family and friends.

Client Work: Hunter Douglas Vignette Roman Shade in White Linen - Dallas, TX

Read Design

Our customer in Dallas, Texas wanted help with her study.  She had shutters on the front French Doors that needed to stay but everything else could go.  We put in an oriental rug that had browns, blues, and off whites in the design. We repositioned the desk to face the entry and opened up the view to the side yard using Hunter Douglas Tiered Vignette Roman Shades in White linen.  

We used the LiteRise or no-cord lifting system to keep the look neat.  She has a beautiful landscape out these windows and she says she loves the light that filters in!
