It’s completely normal to be nervous when starting out a design project for your home. Will you enjoy working with the designer? Will they be able to work within your budget?
You’re not just a client when you decide to work with Enjolé. Even if it begins with just one small project, you often become a life-long friend, which speaks to the successful outcomes and the trustworthiness of our designers.
One of our latest design projects was a beautiful home renovation for our dear customer and friend, Julie. She and Tammy actually met at our store 4 years prior to this project.
Julie and her family moved here two years ago in March and did a renovation on their home, lowering their A-frame ceiling and changing the layout of the kitchen and office. The kitchen layout and cabinets had been completed, and Julie decided to bring Tammy and the Enjolé team in to make the space more of a “home.”
“I actually enjoy working on a renovation project this way because you get to work through the process with the client and figure out a timeline together,” Tammy said. “With a renovation project, it really is all about trusting the process and watching things get better and better as they evolve.”
Only the Perfect Pieces for the Dining Room
“Julie had a list of different phases she wanted to complete in the remodel,” Tammy recalls. “The dining area was the first phase, and we knew that we wanted a really interesting piece to bring the space alive. Julie already had a dining table and chairs, so we just had to add some finishing touches.”
Julie and Tammy ended up finding a serving table that fit the scale of the room and perfectly complemented the dining room table and chairs. Next, the two decided to add color to the walls with art.
“I actually reached out to our art broker when he stopped by the store one day and he showed me these two photos,” Tammy said. “I channeled the client and told the art broker I knew she needed them. I was right. Once the art was added to the wall, it was like everything was instantly tied together.”
A Rug + Fabrics add Layer and Color
Isn’t it amazing what a rug can do for a space? Tammy recalls Julie selecting the rug for their new space.
“This is one of my favorite pieces. It’s beautiful. All of the colors in the rug were very much an inspiration for the rest of the house. Not to mention, this piece is a collectible and pairing it with the art and chandelier adds even more flair to the design.” Tammy also mentioned that Julie plans to reupholster and paint the chairs to play off of the colors in the rug. Another layer of design that will add so much dimension to the space. “Something funky and cool to make the space really fabulous.”
Also in the living room area, you will see a fun collection of fabrics carefully pieced together by Tammy and Julie that perfectly fit the families needs! “We wanted to create a space that is durable, the fabric on the seat is a performance fabric and then we went with a really beautiful textured durable fabric here that is just soft and yummy, and would hide any flaws.”Julie and her family have a heart for rescuing dogs, so the space needed to fit their lifestyle and passion.
“We just had fun with collections of fabrics, I think the fun part about Julie is that she’s not afraid to try anything, she’s not scared to go outside of the box, so you know this is definitely not your normal sofa! This is a sofa that kids can lounge on or take a nap on and it still looks like something in a magazine.”
Family Heirlooms Make a House a Home
When one of our designers comes into a space, we want to make sure we leave it feeling like a home and not just a well-decorated house.
“For this design, that special, family touch was a punch bowl that has been used and loved for many years by Julie,” Tammy said. “A special touch like this is what makes you fall in love with a space day after day.”
This space is a beautifully-unique product built out of a connection between designer and client that is unmatched in the industry, and it’s exactly what you can expect when you work with the team at Enjolé Interiors.
