When Two Households Become One
How in the world do you take all the things from two separate homes, put them in one house and get it to work harmoniously? He likes his things. She likes her things. They don't match. Two of most everything...what stays, what goes?
We are here to assure you that combining two households into one can be fun, and the process of joining styles can have stunning results. A recent project we completed is a case in point. Our clients wanted to make some cosmetic changes before the move-in date so they used our consultation and color consultation services prior to the move-in, in addition to our redesign and move-in services.
Before: His pool table, bar, and aquarium had to stay.
The Result: His sectional..Her secretary, china cabinet and buffet..His antique chair (hidden in the photo by the sectional) and Her upholstered chair paired to flank the fireplace..His accessories..Her accessories..new lamp (foreground) and drapery panels.
The Result: His bar..Her persimmon chair..His pool table..new artwork.
View 3: Note how accessories and artwork really pop after painting the built-ins. The ornate fireplace mantle is now a focal point. Her piano is just out of camera range to the right of the window.
View 4: His aquarium is relocated behind the pool table. In the background, His small table and antique chair help to create an inviting entryway.
When two families come together it is always important to consider the children and that they need a space, too. Making use of furniture pieces in unexpected ways can solve lots of needs for a space.
The result: Her buffet used for toy storage and displaying children's artwork, books, toys..His video game machine..Her sofa..One child's bedside table used as a lamp table..Another child's game table used for a coffee table, for young child's block building, and older children's Leggos. Out of camera range: TV and console, child's table and chairs, small chest (matches the "lamp table") for extra storage and dry erase board for creative play.
