a work in progress

As Thanksgiving nears we want to take a few moments to share what we're thankful for.  Over this past year, we've worked with some amazing clients, been given some incredible opportunities, and have learned more both as designers & as a company, with each passing day.  This Design Monday, we want to open our doors to you, and share what we've been up to!

One of our latest residential projects is a jaw dropping mid-century home set deep in the woods of Westchester, NY.

Today's post will focus on the work we'll be doing in their stunning master bedroom.  During our first on-site meeting, we sat down with our clients around their dining table and discussed what their ideal bedroom would be; aesthetically & functionally.

After our initial meeting, we took our clients' checklist and presented them with two layout & style directions for them to choose between.  Option 1 offered a rustic-chic aesthetic, utilizing warmer neutral tones, bronzed metals, and natural textures like fur & raw hyde.  Option 2 offered a sophisticated take on a playful aesthetic, utilizing a cooler neutral pallet, pops of color, and bold geometric accents.  With each layout, you can see elevations of the custom built-ins we designed.  (To say our client's bedroom offers minimal wall space is an understatement and meant we had to get creative with the way we approached the storage, which for us was a really fun obstacle.)  Each option needed to offer sufficient closed storage, a place for their media center, and display shelving.  To keep with the stunning style of their home, we pulled inspiration directly from their front door, to replicate in the custom millwork.

Additionally to accommodate their outdoor entertainment needs, we designed a stunning deck including a seating & dining space comfortable for 6, and two lounge chairs for our couple when they want some restful time together.  Since the walls of our clients' master bedroom are mostly windows, we treated their exterior space as an extension of the interior space and sourced outdoor furniture lovely enough to rival any of the indoor pieces.  Below are the 3 initial boards presented to our clients:

The above presentation went off without a hitch, and our clients made choice decisions that allowed us to move forward with a finalized design plan.  We're currently working on our second presentation, where we'll offer three fully-realized design concepts for our clients to view, and select one to move forward with.

Stay tuned because we can't wait to share the finished photos of this amazing mid-century retreat in the woods with you!  Until then, we want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving =)
