Palo Alto Residence

This 4,000 square foot newly constructed spec-residence included new furnishings, window coverings for 55 windows, paint, rugs, art work and accessories for a very tight budget.

The client requested an eclectic mix of various styles for a warm, comfortable feel.

To maximize the client's budget, limited paint changes were made. Dark brown accent walls unify the design concept throughout the home.

New artwork and accessories complete the desired look.

Existing chandelier and wall sconces were refreshed with new black lamp shades for a bold impact.

Custom iron and Ipe wood tables were designed with lamp cords concealed within hollow legs.

The dark brown accent paint provides continuity from room to room and is a strong contrast for the commissioned artwork
