La Bella Casa

This project was such a fun exploration of color, pattern, and texture. Our clients wanted to incorporate their love of travel into each room in a unique way. Grab your passport and take a tour around our La Bella Casa project!


ENTRY


Art is the key to this entry’s appeal. We added trim work here and then commissioned the bright abstract pieces from local artist Rachel Nash.

Our client was drawn to the playful photography of Gray Malin, and the skiing subject matter clicked with the couple’s love of skiing. We framed the Gray Malin piece in a neon acrylic frame to really pull out the fun colors in the little skiers! Clear acrylic consoles give us surface area without crowding the space, and the multi-colored 1970’s Billy Baldwin x-benches tie all the vibrant colors together.

We always have to have a little vintage, so we sourced the most fun 1970’s post-modern bouillotte metal lamp for this space, along with a 1960’s inspired gold mushroom lamp.

And we did not forget about the ceiling here! When you look up, there is a beautiful glossy blue ceiling accented with a matte white fixture.

LIBRARY

Our client's love of crystal blue waters and coastal vibes served as the inspiration for the library. The large photograph of Capri set the tone for this space and provided us with a starting point for the color palette in the room.


We searched for the perfect cerulean blue fabric for the cane daybed, and then accented the drapery and white swivel chairs (in performance fabric of course!) with a textural tape trim that combined all the colors of blue in the room.

The bookshelves in our client’s 1960’s home were boring brown, so we had them painted a nice bright white, then we added a fun blue wave wallpaper to bring it all to life. We had to add a little practicality with the bottom row of baskets as our client has an adorable toddler who likes to play in this room!



Speaking of playing, styling those shelves definitely provided some laughs! Our client partnered with us to get it just right, which was a blast, but when you have decor stacked all over the floor be careful when you back up to take a look at your work!

DINING


This room all started with the cheerful Orange Crush wallpaper by Nathan Turner for Wallshoppe. Our client fell in love with the wallcovering, along with the symbolism of oranges as the fruit of love in Renaissance culture. In the Middle Ages and Renaissance, oranges appear in visual and verbal representations as an effective aid in physical and spiritual health, as symbols of romantic and of divine love, and as signs of geographic allegiance to one's citrus-rich land.



We started with the round faux marble dining table and the custom-lacquered light blue vintage credenza, then layered in the ebony and cane chairs to give us a little contrast to all the color. Jan Showers always says the lighting is the “jewelry of the room” and we could not agree more. This gorgeous chandelier is comprised of individual blown glass spheres and reflects beautifully in the mirror.


Our client also had an antique dry sink that she inherited from her grandfather which we updated in a black finish and new hardware, transforming it into a bar cabinet.



Drapery always finishes off the room, and we love the gorgeous embroidered fern tape trim paired with classic white linen. The acrylic drapery rod with touches of gold adds a modern contrast to the antique pieces throughout the space.

HALLWAY


This hallway started out sad and dark and we just had to fix that! First, we had the ceilings raised by a foot and WOW what a difference that made! We added cloud wallpaper to really make that new ceiling special!

There was a little silver cubby in the hallway with doors that we removed, and then we added a blue accent behind the new shelves, tying it into the bathroom millwork color. Now this gives our client a little spot for family photos. The hardware on the cabinets below added the perfect accent to the finished look. Sources:

BATHROOM


This was a total remodel, gutting the kids’ bathroom to not only update it, but to make it much more functional. We went bright and white, with accents of the best light blue paint color, brass fixtures, and unique hardware we found on Etsy. To give the bathroom some personality, we sourced prints from artist Lesley Grainger and placed fun Turkish oushak rugs in front of the vanity.
