Real Living

Last winter, a lovely family came to me and wanted a space that would serve as a real living space, meaning a place to all be together in, whether playing games or working or doing homework. They would all be together in this room filled with a giant custom communal table and comfy seating. Think Le Pain Quotidien comes to a quiet neighborhood home in Westport. A place that they would want to hang out in and most importantly be together in. We had the challenge (I love challenges) of transforming a stogy formal living room, that never got used into this cool and comfortable family hangout. This is what I call a “living room” because it’s actually being lived in! This new space defines the tone for the entire home and celebrates the art of HAPPY LIVING!

Our custom Humoungous Communal table is the centerpiece of the space, made to your specs with a Frederico bench in Moon+ Tree’s belgian linen. The felt bins on top of the the bookshelves are by Muuto and they help to hide and contain all the small bits of fun.

One of the highlights in this space is one of my Biblioteque art prints titled “ My Passions”. This was originally a photograph that I shot of a vignette of books in my home. I then painted over the print and it took on a whole new spirit. Look close.. sometimes I change up the book titles ;)  I coupled the art with sconces by Allied Maker which softly accented the artwork.

We took family iPhone photos and photoshopped them, zapped up the saturation, enlarged them and lastly, mounted them on plexiglass. We then layered them on custom picture ledges in-between artwork that clearly expresses their family motto.. LOVE IS HERE!

This “real living room” is a space for being together, no phones, no tv, no distractions. Just being together.

Love Is Here!
