Los Altos Luxury
This beautiful home was previously designed in a Tuscan motif incorporating reds, golds, and greens. The owners were ready for a change. With careful attention to color theory, the palate was slowly transitioned to a cooler palate of blues, and grays with some warmer elements of brown and yellow. The goal was to transition slowly so that the house would be livable throughout the transformation. Navy replaced red walls in the office and dining room. New window treatments gave a fresh look and the owner's extensive art collection was highlighted. We were able to use much of the owners existing furniture updating and reupholstering as needed.
This beautiful inherited cabinet felt heavy in this home until it was paired with a similarly heavy mirror. Painting the stair handrail black created a visual line up the staircase where family photos are featured.
This homeowner always wanted plush blue sofas but was worried about fading. We selected a solution dyed acrylic fabric which is soft and luxurious and will also resist fading for years. Paired with the couple's original art plus prints that we relocated from another area in the home, the living room is definitely inviting and comfortable.
This custom art piece works well with the colors and feel of the living room.
Red wallpaper was removed from the walls in this dining room and navy paint was applied to create a dramatic space. This snapshot shows progress but not the final outcome.
Pairing architectual prints with larger art pieces helps keep the room from being overwhelmed with color.
Removing outdated window coverings lightened this kitchen and adding an inexpensive but lovely rug makes this kitchen feel welcoming and finished.
Changing the walls in the office from red to blue and removing a heavy window treatment improved the natural light. Re-orienting the desk and simplifying the shelving display added a sense of calm.
Refreshing this room included changing the faucet and lighting fixtures as well as changing wall color, mirror, and window treatment.
New window treatments and paint as well as new bedding lightened this room without a significant financial investment.
