This 1920s 4,000 sqft Shaughnessy residence is owned by a couple and their two boys. Except for the bedrooms and dining area, it sat unfurnished for 2 years as the couple spent many fruitless weekends visiting countless furniture stores all over town. The problem was that both couldn’t agree on what they wanted for their home – the husband wanted something more contemporary and the wife preferred to have a more classical interior to suit the craftsman-style character of their gorgeous home. Our design team had to agree with the wife. This decision enabled us to save the original marble fireplace that the couple thought of taking out for something more modern. We chose a warm beige color to replace their green walls and dark brown furniture from Jordan’s and Brougham Interiors that was more traditional but didn’t scream “grandma”. New baseboards, artwork, mirrors and curtains were hung throughout to add a bit more formality and elegance to the space. The end result is a space that is not only pleasing to look at but also very comfortable and inviting for their friends and family.
