Traditional Townhome

I was thrilled to see the beautiful antique collection this client had for me to incorporate into the design of this home. The client had a specific color palette in mind from the onset, which became a very important factor in integrating the various new and old furniture pieces. It was the antique painting in the foyer that inspired the black and brown color combination. Corals and greens were added for contrast. Much attention was paid to the drapery.

The great room's enormous elliptical shaped window with taffeta side panels and Austrian shades give a European flair, while the kitchen drapery reflects the homeowner's passion for gardening. The ruched cornice in the dining room repeats the elliptical shape of the chairs, which are a tortoiseshell finish mirroring a faux finish on the ceiling. Elegant sophistication with an inviting warmth was the overall design goal. Attention to detail was how we successfully achieved it.

Sometimes in pictures a photographer can erase the cords with photoshop. I do this occasionally in my own pictures if it makes the picture look better. Sometimes I leave the cords in if I think it will help someone understand the orientation of the room and floorplan better. When I put together a floorplan such as this one pictured I have a floor plug that I can use. I like to place the sofa on top of the plug and then feed the plug under the sofa for plug in.
Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart
