I recently had the opportunity to design a condo located at the new East 54 development in Chapel Hill. For their vacation home, my clients wanted a comfortable and classic look with a mix of antique and modern furniture. I was brought onto the project during the construction phase which was great because it enabled me to better achieve the overall look I envisioned for them. By layering textures, shapes and tones in a neutral color palette, I was able to create a calm and relaxing retreat.
Here are some pictures:
Foyer: The aged iron lamp and organic materials give a sense of depth, setting the tone for the rest of the home.
Dining area: In order to maximize the small dining space, I decided to use a dual seat banquette. I was so excited when I found this antique french winetasting table with perfect proportions. When I purchased the antique french chairs, they were upholstered in a brown leather. I had them reupholstered in a cream linen with a flax trim/large nailheads. The new fabric and detailing really makes them "pop"!
This antique clock is one of 3 items that the owner provided...other than that, I started from scratch! It was so much fun...
Master Bedroom: I absolutely adore this antique french chest!! The colors in the marble top are amazing. I also love the armless chairs...the nailhead detailing adds so much interest.
Living Room: The ivory linen sheer curtains soften the lines of room without blocking the gorgeous view of Finley Golf course.

Den: In order to transform this den into another bedroom, we selected this great sleeper sofa.
Den: I chose this lucite coffee table on wheels so that my clients can easily roll it out of the way when they are ready to pull out the sofa. It also does not take up too much visual space...a feature that is great for this small-scale room
