A Perfect Furniture Arrangement for a Tricky Floorplan - Family Lakehouse Design

Have you ever struggled with creating a furniture arrangement in a space that has several openings, doorways and/or windows? Or a space that has an off center fireplace, builtin's, or serves multiple purposes? Check out this design plan I just delivered to a client. I offered solutions for a furniture arrangement that turns the original potential layout challenges into layout benefits and allows my clients to take full advantage of their new homes' features. 

My client just purchased a fantastic Lakeside Cabin. The cabin has an open floor plan in the Living/Dining Area. There is a staircase that runs through the center of the space, an offset fireplace, large walls of windows and an exterior doorway and a hallway that requires a comfortable traffic pattern. All of these features are fabulous design elements, however they were posing some furniture layout challenges for the new home owners. I created a design plan that allows them to create a cozy living area and a comfortable dining spot centered around an adorable fireplace and a gorgeous view out to the lake. All while maintaining a comfortable traffic pattern and offering plenty of seating.

Designing With a Bold Carpet Pattern - Country Club Ladies Room Design

*For info on my online design service, please click here. I currently have openings for new projects. 

Last week, I had the opportunity to design a commercial space. I created this design plan for a Ladies Room located in large Golf and Country Club. I created a new look for the room while maintaining a few of the existing design elements. The carpet with a traditional scroll design was one of the current elements I needed to work with, as the carpeting in the ladies room runs throughout the clubhouse. My goal in this project was to give the ladies room a cozy feel, and a high end, dramatic, intriguing style that is not only updated and relevant, but has a deep feel of country club nostalgia that will stand the test of design time. This room design has it's own look, yet it flows with the traditional country club style and rich history featured throughout the rest of the building. The new elements I chose work with the colors and pattern featured in the carpet, yet they capture your attention making the carpeting less of a focal point.

Choosing the Right Wall in Your Room for an Accent Wall

*For info on my online design service, please click here. I currently have openings for new projects.

Have you ever wanted to create a dramatic accent wall in a space, but you're unsure of which wall to use? It's not always easy to choose and there are a few things to consider. If the room has multiple focal points, vaulted ceilings, walls of windows, walls of varying heights, an angled fireplace, etc. it's not always obvious where your accent wall should go.

I just delivered a design plan to a client that required some thoughtful consideration in choosing which wall to use for a dramatic accent wall in her favorite dark green color. Her Master Bedroom has a grand, spacious feel due to tall vaulted ceilings. I chose to create the accent wall and position the furniture against the largest, tallest wall in the space even though it is the only asymmetrical wall. The peak of the vaulted ceiling lies off center on this wall, but painting that wall dark and placing the furniture in just the right spot, this large open room will feel perfectly balanced, symmetrical, cozy and intimate.

A Small Busy Entryway Gets a Big Dose of Style

*For info on my online design service, please click here. I currently have openings for new projects.

Do you have a small area in your home that get's a lot of daily use, but lacks personality? Not sure how to give a tight, busy area character and style? I just delivered a design plan to a customer that will take her small entryway from one of her least favorite areas to one that makes her smile every time she uses it! This foyer in my clients Northern Michigan Lakehouse is the main entry into her home and is used often to take the family pets in and out throughout the day. I created a custom design to give her foyer a stylish look that matches the beautiful decor throughout the rest of her home, while maintaining a practical, pet friendly space that stands up to Northern Michigan weather elements... think rainy coats, snowy boots, muddy paws, etc. 

The secret to achieving style in a tight space without crowding it with decor is to use just a few high impact design elements. This could include oversized art, graphic patterns, a contrasting color palette, creative lighting, and layers of texture. I utilized all of these in her design plan. Check it out...
