Behind the Design: Paradise Valley

After, Great Room

We recently completed a whole-house redesign in Paradise Valley! As per usual, we wanted to take you inside the design to see how this house was transformed. So we gathered up some of our design proposals and our "After" photos to share with you and walk you through the designs for some of our favorite spaces. The largest transformation in this house, as seen above, was opening up the huge wall between the living room and the kitchen/family room. Not only did this completely open up the space, but it really made this the perfect house for entertaining. But, let's talk about all of the spaces in detail!

Living Room Design

As we stated before, the opening of the wall between the two spaces completely transformed the living room. But a lot more went into this design as well! As with all of our designs, we first came up with our concept for the living room space. As you can see, we wanted the space to have a glamorous overall vibe for entertaining, but still feel comfortable and inviting for guests. The anchor of the space is the large reclaimed wood coffee table framed in metal. From there, we wanted to soften the space a bit, so we added lots of plush upholstery, like the pair of gray wingback chairs and the light beige sofa. Accessories and pattern are key in this space, and we added lots of metallic tones and geometric patterns in shades of blue.

As you can see from the end results, the house's design worked well off of the neutral existing travertine and amble sunlight. We chose to add gray so that the house didn't feel too tan or too gray overall and we love the end results! The wood tones of the coffee table really work to warm up the space, and the metallic accessories and lush greenery are the perfect finishing touches to the space! Also, a quick tip - once the space was opened up, the house echoed more than it did before. Textiles, such as the rug, upholstery and accent pillows and throws help to reduce noise!

Dining Room Design

Design, Dining Room

Our plan for the dining room involved a lot of texture and pattern, and making the space feel much more formal and modern than before. Our main focal point in this space was a bold wallcovering for texture, so we immediately thought of using a grasscloth on the walls. We loved the idea of accenting with blue in this space, to offset the dark colored table, so we thought the blue may be just the pop of color that the walls needed. Of course, every dining space needs a bold light fixture, so our proposed design included this gorgeous crystal chandelier in a warm golden hue.

In the end, we decided that the best way to make this space pop was to use a soft golden hue on the wall for our custom wall finish. This faux grasscloth look is completely durable and cleanable, making it a good option for any family. The space still features accents of teal blue, in the tabletop accessories, wall décor and drapes. We also ended up selecting a gorgeous silver and crystal chandelier to offset the warm hue of the wall tone.

Girl's Room Design

Girls Room, Design

This sweet girl's room all started with a headboard. When we first saw our client's daughters adorable canopy bed, we knew that it had to stay and the space had to be designed with it in mind! Because she is a growing little girl, we decided one way to make this space carry her through the teen years was to not make it feel overly pink. So we proposed accents of bright turquoise, yellows, and greens to pair with her favorite color. Two nightstands on either side of the bed complete this perfect space!

In the end, the space turned out even more adorable than we could have hoped! The walls were given a custom wall finish in a turquoise metallic trellis pattern that we love. We added pops of accent colors like the turquoise and yellow throw pillows, and the pops of purple throughout as well. The bright floral bedding, pom poms and large flower décor finish off the space adorably well, we think!

Pool Room Design

With a fun house comes a lot of fun spaces to design! We were lucky enough to get to help the homeowners design their Pool/Entertainment Room. When we brainstormed how to lay out this space with the client, it seemed like what was most needed were bright accents - a new bold light fixture in a fun finish (like brass!), a bright colored rug, and some bold artwork for above the fireplace...then we added in fun accessories and bright pillows.

We just love the end result - the perfect place to entertain guests! The gold geometric light fixture was the perfect size to hang above the pool table, which was placed on a fun color blocked rug. The two accent chairs were given contrasting pillows and the art piece over the fireplace really ties everything together quite nicely!

Outdoor Living Design

For the outdoor living space, we wanted to use a bright color palette up against the home's gorgeous natural scenery of Camelback mountain. We loved the combination of the bright blue tones with the greenery beyond.

We stayed very true to our original design concept for the outdoors! The pergola made for a perfect place to add outdoor drapery, which adds privacy when needed. The pops of blue and green suited the space nicely and added just the right splash of color!

As you can see, we had a lot of fun and a lot to do on this project in Paradise Valley and we just love the end results. To see more of this project, visit it's page here: Paradise Valley.
