When a new build is constructed in a historical district, it can be overwhelming to adjust the interior of the home to blend with the surrounding exterior. However with efficient planning, keen attention to detail, and persistence - the outcome can be worthwhile, and ML Interiors Group aimed to accomplish just that! Consistent communication and patience were the forerunners of this design, as balancing the construction schedule with installation and implementation was a continuous need to make this home turn-key ready.
Some particulars that were incorporated into the design were the client’s fondness for two beautifully bold prints from London, as well as various family heirlooms and unique pieces to be implemented seamlessly into the designed spaces. Thoughtfully used as curtains and a headboard, the floral prints mentioned came to life as the inspiration for the spaces in which they were used. This love of color and history made this design distinctive in its individuality, allowing identity to permeate throughout while also making the home feel more personal and “lived in.” Size and scale were also considered when it came to balancing the different spaces, employing the color black to appear subtly to provide contrast to the more standout pieces.
Performance fabrics and mixed metals (such as brushed nickel, and antique brass) integrated within the design demonstrate a unique blend of styles that seems to create a whimsical harmony - reflective of the homeowner’s quirky style. With a new space that can grow with the family, the result of this design is a home that is elegant enough for fine dining and entertainment, yet also comfortable enough for “Football Saturdays” and furry friends.
