I had so much fun working with this couple and getting to know them and their style and love how this fresh, contemporary design came together.
It was an honor to paint a custom for the home's entryway, which provides a moment of dramatic contrast in this bright double-story space. For an impactful moment of color, we added a . The arched reflects extra light, and clean white pleated curtains soften the room.
The dining room is the only room I had them paint because it really helps to define this space and make it feel extra special.

Blue accents continue in the master bathroom design, where I added another custom roman shade from The Shade Store above the soaking tub, and to the navy vanity. We swapped the wall mirror for a pair of extra-tall framed mirrors that unfortunately didn't make this shot. In front of the vanity is a vintage Turkish rug I sourced on to bring some aged character to the space.
