THE DESIGN GOAL

Our clients were seeking to update their builder grade family room. They requested a comfortable family room with architectural interest and a stone faced fireplace with a rustic mantle. They wanted to be very comfortable when lounging and watching TV with family, but they were looking for a departure from the large sectional they owned for many years. Ultimately, they wanted a space that felt light and bright, but still conveyed the warmth of an intimate family space.

We collaborated with the clients through our full service interior design offering. We created a few concept boards and a 3D model to help them visualize the design before any construction began.

THE DESIGN CHALLENGES

The shape of the room created the largest design hurdle. The clients wanted their TV to be centered with the seating area, but this didn’t allow the TV to be centered on that particular wall. We were challenged with finding a way to offset this visually and create cohesion in the space.

“Jessica is a talented, creative, quality designer. She completely transformed our room into something we never could have dreamed of ourselves.…. She is a visionary and has a unique ability to see a space and pull things together that literally changes and renews all at the same time…. She wants the design to be what YOU want. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer her to others, and have already contracted with her for our next project!”

THE DESIGN COMPLETION

We installed board and batten style moulding throughout the entire room to create balance in the room. It also added architectural interest consistent with the style of the home and the updates they were seeking to make with the upcoming years. Another benefit of the moulding is that it keeps the space light and cohesive, but it also can help make expansive spaces have a more human scale.

We also solved the off center TV arrangement by installing custom Cherry floating shelves around the TV in an asymmetrical arrangement. This offset the installation visually, so it didn’t feel off centered.

Bucks County Designer House + Gardens Reveal

When we were asked to submit a design for the 44th Annual Bucks County Designer House and Gardens, I was immediately inspired to create a space that was inspired by vintage Parisian design. The industrial nature of bistros in the early 19th century, lent itself well to the architecture of the 1860s farmhouse selected for the designer house, Peppermint Farm. 

I envisioned this space being used by the homeowners, a couple who have lived abroad in France, but have chosen to settle down in a country home. They will sit at their bistro table to drink a cup of coffee in the morning while enjoying the newspaper or a favorite book.
