The Challenge: Obtaining tasteful and masculine décor.
The first point the client made; Lori I have a dog, a large dog, your design has to take this into consideration. Not only did Titan, his handsome pet, test the design, the project at large tested the four basic elements of interior design, which are line, form, color and texture. Men often prefer a straightforward approach to design. Comfort is usually a higher priority than the room’s aesthetics. When designing for this gentleman’s taste I kept the design simple. Clean lines and functional pieces worked best. The kitchen was a complete redo and the open concept required considerable planning. It was a must to strike a balance and flow between the kitchen and living room space. His love for the color orange was my focal point for the design’s aesthetics. In the end we agreed upon a balance of grey, brown and orange tones which strengthened his current masculine textured leather furniture. Together we took this dated and drab space and created a functional environment worthy of the client’s great taste and his treasured dog.
