A Design Collaboration Inspired by this One Detail
When an Enjolé designer is invited on a design collaboration in a team member’s home interior, some of our favorite brands and styles come to life!
This beautiful family room design is a perfect example of how one piece of inspiration can lead an entire project design – and sometimes it’s even more fun this way. Would you believe the entire design started around just one piece of art?!
A Love for Design Blossoms
Amy has been with our team for about two and a half years. She retired from her job as a pharmacy rep and decided she wanted to spend her time with something she had always had a passion for: interior design.
“I’ve always loved mixing and matching fabric designs.” Amy said. “I also love helping people create spaces they truly love, whether it be a brand new space, a redesign or simply rearranging items to give the space a new flair.”
A Vision for the Space Evolves
“When I initially started working with Margy [designer at Enjolé Interiors] on the space, I didn’t really have a “vibe” in mind,” Amy admits. “But, I did have a piece of art that I loved for the space, and I adored the gold frame.” It ended up being her love for the gold frame that sparked the vision for the design. They decided on a beautiful velvet blue Bernhardt sofa with accenting gold nailheads. Then came more gold with accent pillows and subtle decor around the room.
This vibrant gold wasn’t the only vision for the space, though… That’s simply where it began. “We brought in more contrasting colors with the lamp, adding mixed metals throughout the room, and Margy even made me this unique succulent arrangement that adds another layer of design,” Amy said. “And, of course, I had to throw in some pieces that I love into the design, as well. I love fabrics,so I created the drapes and found a beautiful leather chaise that sets the room apart.”
Another fun piece Amy recalls adding into the design were the Karges chests flanking the bay window, which belonged to her parents. “I knew I wanted them in the design because they were a piece of my family and are close to my heart, and it just made that part of the room feel complete with all the great natural light coming through.”
Carrying the Design Throughout the Home
When designing a space this unique and elegant, you want to be able to carry the design throughout the home. Amy decided to bring in more coordinating colors and textures into the entryway and library with a cowhide rug, silk pillows and silver lamp.
“My “orange room” — as I like to call it — was just in need of a little refresh,” Amy said. “I just love the color orange, and I wanted to keep it that way. So, I decided to update the space with a gray sofa from Bernhardt and play off the color in the wall with a variety of different fabrics on the pillows.”
Creating a Dramatic Powder Room
“Many people think that powder rooms just need to serve a purpose, and don’t always think to incorporate a fun or dramatic design, but I think it’s a great space for design,” Amy shared.
“The powder room is one of the most frequently used spaces, as guests will always see it when you entertain.” In this space, Amy wanted to go bold with her wallpaper, incorporating a Thibault Peacock Design that she fell in love with. For added drama, she did a black ceiling with black and white flooring to give the space even more dimension.
A Master Bedroom fit for a Queen
The final space tackled in this redesign was the master bedroom. “I knew I wanted some sort of accent wall in the room, and I thought a more neutral colored wallpaper behind my bold headboard would really make the space stand out. I love how it turned out!” Amy recalls.
Amy chose a dark forest green velvet headboard from CR Laine, and added a couple lamps on either side atop her end tables [originally her parents] to really make a statement, along with a beautiful custom bedspread from Lili Alessandra.
It’s amazing to see a space come together like Amy’s… one that evolved from a minor design detailed and spilled over into other rooms throughout the home. Sometimes all it takes to make a space feel luxurious but also all your own is an idea for inspiration and collaboration with a skilled designer – Contact the interior design experts at Enjolé Interiors today to help bring some life back to your space.Social tagging: design project > design vision > designer > enjole > enjole interiors > evansville > evansville IN > evansville interior design > furniture > home decor > home remodel > interior design
