Like with so many open concept living room/dining rooms, we were faced with an awkwardly long space, where it’s also too long for two rooms but not long enough to squeeze in a third. Our solution, in this case, was to opt for the larger dining table and to use the space in between both rooms for a buffet/bar. We anchored the Casement buffet from Crate & Barrel with two large table lamps and some art, to make sure it didn’t feel like an afterthought.
Our client is pretty design-savvy and is able to appreciate many different styles but because of that, she kept changing her mind about the direction we would take with her home. Although shifts in our concepts often occur, our job throughout the course of this project was to bring her back to her initial vision. She had asked us for a bright, airy, open, white space. She was a fan of pale colours with not much contrast and so that’s what we pushed to give her, while still creating depth through textures and layered neutrals. The raw, live edge table in the living room paired with the camel leather of the armchairs do wonders in warming up the room against the white, crisp palette.
