A Vibrant Garden Gathering Space

Create intimacy, connection, and belonging with a comfortable place to gather with friends and family. 

 The Considerations:

Our client for this project envisioned a great room design, inspired by her delightful gardens, that was conducive to hosting gatherings and her ongoing book club. She also desired a comfortable, classic sofa that could accommodate her friends’ knee and back issues, while also incorporating her existing furniture in the refreshed design. 

The Solutions:

The careful selection of fabrics for the drapery was key to pulling the design together. The airy botanical print became the inspiration for the rest of the color scheme, starting with soft green painted walls. A woven jute rug added texture and set a casual mood. We then found the perfect sofa style to beautifully complement the space and accommodate her friends’ needs. 

We created a welcoming, balanced ambiance by contrasting bold geometrically patterned pillows with organic drapery. A woven bench and versatile swivel chairs with a whimsical polka dot upholstery fabric rounded out the seating for guests. We also added round iron nesting cocktail tables to provide the ideal spot for snacks during her book group meetings.

A magnificent waterlily painting adorned the walls, adding to the garden-inspired ambiance. 

To complete the vision, we placed her colorful inlaid table in the center of the room and surrounded it with trellis-backed rattan chairs, to create a charming small dining area.

The Happy Outcome:

Our client’s finished great room is now an oasis of tranquility and charm. She’s thrilled to have her new “happy place” – a beautiful, welcoming space to entertain her friends and family.
