This interior design project was in the historic Irving Park neighborhood in Greensboro, North Carolina. The clients were a family of four that had recently moved back from Japan. They wanted a decorator that could provide a design that was crisp, comfortable, familiar and inviting for the family. They also wanted to incorporate some of their own furniture and art.
For the living room, we paired classic and modern elements, introducing layers of neutrals and graphic patterns with pops of turquoise and burnt orange. We wanted to incorporate the family’s worldly travels and unique Asian art in a sophisticated way without the feel of a “theme” room. We balanced unique pieces like the turquoise horse sculptures with fun but understated graphic patterns. For the bedroom, we created a serene and comfortable space using cool gray hues mingled with gold and ivory to compliment the client’s antique Asian prints. We increased the size of the closet, added a small seating area and mounted elegant sconces to the wall. This bedroom was a bit on the small side after the closet was enlarged, so we selected every item with careful attention to scale to make the space feel as large and airy as possible.
