Staycation Paradise - Boggs Residence
Every chance they got the Boggs skipped town for a tropical getaway. They loved the feeling of being surrounded by the warm and breezy character of that climate. It dawned on them that if they hired the right designer they could experience what they love about the tropics right here at home!
The Boggs's living room is an escape from the day to day. Having relocated from Seattle to Oklahoma City, David was ready for his quiet morning coffee and paper in the world's most comfortable chair (lounge chair and ottoman by Charles Eames). Peaceful conversations among close friends occur in this space, too. The whole house enjoys melodies from the grand piano on occasion...More
We commissioned a fiber artist to create a massive water view from wistful woolen fibers inspired by some images the family had of their favorite tropical vacation spot. Four layers of naturally dyed raw silk were hand sewn by my design into the exotic living room drapery panels. Jerry Hymer Photography
We took a turn toward a dryer climate to inspire the design for the family room. This is the everyday family hang-out space. Everyone's welcome here anytime. Jerry Hymer Photography
Benches come in handy as secondary seating in flexible rooms like the Boggs's family room. Whether it's just the three of them or the whole clan, there's plenty of room to gather around the fireplace for memorable conversations here. Jerry Hymer Photography
