PROJECT FEATURE: PLAYFUL HOME FOR A YOUNG, FAMILY OF FOUR | AUSTIN INTERIOR DESIGNER
A more traditional home at first glance, this home houses a young family of four, ready to skillfully challenge the typical expectations of its façade. With a boldly patterned wallpapered foyer, this home welcomes visitors with a solid wink of the eye.
Our consistent aim in any project is to partner with and play up the architecture of a home; for young families we see it as necessary to do this playfully. The tongue-in-cheek touches create opportunities for child and grown-up play to coexist.
- We capitalized on storage, giving the home organization and functionality in the way its spaces are used.
- In a study requested for both dad and his boys, we accommodate everyone comfortably and harmoniously through the design of custom built-ins.
- Plush, joyous area rugs ensure parents and kids can linger for lots of down-on-the floor amusement.
- Rounded, well-chosen pieces encourage ebullient flow so no one bumps into pieces at play. In this home we created spaces which feel both mature and non-intimidating, suiting the needs of this more youthful family.
My favorite moments:
- The curved crescent-shaped sofa in the living room;
- color palette in the entryway;
- textures and built-ins in the study;
- light fixtures throughout.
