Project Title
Contemporary Home with White Marble Fireplace
Project Description
WE ARE STARTING RENOVATION IN MID JANUARY 2020 (however the 1st 2 weeks are for demolition)

Overall, we're looking for some help with the following:
Furniture
Lighting advice
Advice with the stair railing of the living room (have a look and let us know about your thoughts on the style of the railing we should go with).
Organization of elements
Modern, minimalist and Eclectic
Manage gray and golden colors/elements very well
Manage modern rustic style very well (since our house is in the suburbs, with a lot of trees around)

What room(s) are you looking to decorate? specifics?

- Lighting - Entire house, pot lights (hotel - ,
- needs a chandelier in 3 rooms. Living and dining room.
Would like to know - if they should put a glass railing.


What is your style? What furniture brands do you like?

- Everything is modern/white in Florida - want to add wood, grey.
- planning to buy everything new.
- likes Modani in terms of style and pricing, likes CB2, Crate&Barrel, Grey/gold/wood/rustic.
- Modani dining table - probably wants to incorporate. will send link.

What is your lifestyle like? Kids? Pets? Entertainers? Incorporating any existing pieces?
- Will have pets, will have a dog.
- We travel a lot, and we take a lot of pictures, so want to do a gallery wall with our own travel picture. Luma gallery in Soho - they put pictures in a critique.
- We have ideas -

-------------
FLOORING
It is basically:
• Changing all the carpet of the bedrooms, halls and closets for
hardwood/laminate.
• Changing the floor of bathrooms, entry hall and indoor patio (excluding
stairs) for tile.
• Polish floor of living room area and fix according to the changes in the
kitchen
PAINTING (only interior)
Paint all the interior of the house, however it is not necessary to paint ceilings
unless the changes in lighting require it. It should not be a maximum of 3-5 colors in
the whole house(white, 2-3 levels of gray and maybe pink for Amelie’s bedroom).
Most of the window frames will be painted matte black. We might do a test first with
one side of the house to see how it looks.

Lighting:
The interior designer will dictate the number of lights per room, but we estimate:
• 6-8 bulbs for living room
• 4-6 at kitchen
• 4 at dining room
• 2-4 at every bathroom
• 4 at every bedroom
• 2 per hall

------

Other notes:
- We are not planning any window treatment. However any ideas? We were thinking about painting the window frames in matte black so it would look more modern.

- How many people would you like to seat in the living/dining area?
I guess it is more a priority of good look, than capacity. However I would be happy to fit 8-10 people in a party, and normally 4-5 (in the living room itself, excluding kitchen, dining room). But on the other hand we don’t want oversize furniture that does not look good according to the size of the living room.

- Are you looking to include a TV in the living room?
Yes, I will provide details shortly.

- Except of the travelling pictures which sound amazing for a gallery wall, are you interested to other art options?
We were thinking not only in the family gallery for one of the walls, but we have really nice pictures of us from our trips around the world

- Are there any colors that you prefer as accents or do you want to maintain a modern monochrome look (neutral or in grey tones)

We really like the combination of gray and gold (specially gold as accent color). However I guess white, black, dark navy blue and woody would fit in this color palette. We will definitely be sending some pics of what we like. The goal is an eclectic, modern, elegant and a bit rustic (woodish) style.

Neutral
What type of sunlight does this room receive?
Morning light
What do you currently dislike about the room?
It is actually easier to say what we like. We love the open space of the living room, and the thing of having living room, dining room and kitchen in one space. We also like the high ceiling.

We believe this space has a great opportunity for renovation, but it definitely needs a fresh look and better finishes.
Are you open to changing your wall colors?
Yes
Do you have a preference for either paint or wall covering, or are you open to both?
Open to both
Are you open to changing your floor covering?
Maybe

Additional comments to designers
Patio - Entrance is though the patio/long lobby. Wow part of the house. Want to put flowers/in-door garden, modern. sit/get a coffee/read a book. Maybe one hanging chair. Artificial grass on walls maybe?


KITCHEN - kitchen is being designed by the kitchen cabinet company
- Want to invest in appliances and cabinets.
- Contractor is more familiar with colonial style kitchen so still not sure how to approach kitchen.

Combined Living/Dining:

Since your room gets plenty of sunlight your color options are quite broad.

For your main color, we chose to use white/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use a matte finish paint because it will be helpful in camouflaging those surface imperfections such as bumps and cracks as it does not reflect light. Just be careful because matte finish is more difficult to clean. You may also need to touch up scratches or marks by adding more of the same paint in the future.

Bedroom:

Since your room gets plenty of sunlight your color options are quite broad. In addition to a medium gray wallpaper, the accent wall color will blend perfectly. Using white for the ceiling will create a fresh appearance.

For your main color, we chose to use light grey/off-white as it offers a fresh, clean, feel to the space. White and off-white colors are often a favorite for walls because they are light, neutral, and match most color schemes. They are known to make rooms feel more airy and spacious.

Use an eggshell finish paint which has a very light touch of shine (similar texture to an eggshell as implied by its name). This finish is very often used for walls and is more durable and easier to clean than matte finish.
