During this project, Dahl House Design worked in phases with the homeowner to create a home that reflects his style. Over the course of the project, we focused on smaller areas, while still keeping the overall design concept in mind. The owner has some incredible collections that we really wanted to showcase. The home is chock full of antique furniture, he has a stunning lamp collection and a unique decorative glass assortment.
We began with refinishing the entire wood floor throughout the home, as well as installing wood in a few rooms that were previously carpeted. The darker stain on the wood floor made the whole home more cohesive, rich, and inviting. In the kitchen, we replaced the countertops with an extraordinary granite. It is incredibly unique and creates a beautiful focal point throughout the whole kitchen. We enlarged the kitchen island to make it more functional and to add seating space. The entry staircase is really a showstopper. We carpeted it in a plush, patterned carpet and stained the railing to coordinate with the accent wood color. In the living room, we retiled the fireplace with a beautiful pattern to frame the area. The wood was also stained on the mantle and the entire entertainment area to really make the whole fireplace pop and stand out.
Throughout the entire main floor, we replaced the lighting with much more decorative and stylized pieces. The amber glass creates a warm glow throughout each of the main spaces. All of the walls, ceilings, trim, and even the front door were repainted. We selected colors with the homeowner that are much warmer and cohesive. They all work together to showcase his furniture and art. Which brings us to the finalizing touches, the custom furniture, art, and accessories. There were already so many amazing pieces that we wanted to showcase in this home, so we kept with similar styles and finishes. Custom living and dining room furniture blend seamlessly with much older furniture pieces. We introduced interesting rugs and lots of texture to break up the wood. Accessories and art were placed throughout, creating a gallery of rare conversation pieces.
