The owner of Patio Cafe wanted to give a refresh to their restaurant for their 20th anniversary. They wanted a touch of farmhouse while still keeping a more eclectic feel. The patrons were extremely disappointed when they heard the beloved original mural was going to be painted over so we came up with the idea of 'shiplapping' over part of the mural while giving snapshots of the focal points. We replaced the mismatched fans with two large windmill fans. Commercial dimmable bistro lights were strung around the ceiling for an outdoorsy feel. Bar and pub seating was added for a more private space to eat and all of the table tops were updated. To finish off the "patio" feel we added in live plants from Foliage Clovis and a "flower bed" along the mural wall.
While many projects entail custom cabinets, new finishes throughout, and months of construction, this client wanted to work with their existing finishes and cabinets. My client loved the farmhouse style and while it can often read feminine, my client wanted to make sure her sons and husband felt just as at-home as she did.
The narrow and empty entry became an inviting spot for guest to kick off their shoes before joining the party.
Antiques were incorporated from around the world, bringing in a classy yet rustic feel.
Greenery is always a key element in each of our designs. For some clients it is real, for others it is faux. For this client we incorporated a mix.
Country living, large dogs, and teenage boys don't often go hand-in-hand with light colored sofas but we found a way. Performance fabrics in combination with slip covered sofas made it all possible.
A four foot in diameter antique ceiling medallion from back East was key in this little niche.
The dining room pieces were carefully selected to incorporate elements found throughout the home.
While the pallet was kept neutral, appearances of blues and greens were made throughout.
Decor pieces were thoughtfully selected to bring all of the colors and textures together.
No corner of the main living space was left untouched, including the kitchen.
