Say hello to our latest project – a Spanish-style home with all the Arizona charm.
Our #DCRanchVilla project has been such a joy to design & we’re so excited to finally share the Full Reveal! Although this finished project has been a long time coming, we believe it was completely worth the wait! After one full year of patiently waiting for all their furniture to arrive, we’re proud to present this desert-sunset inspired furniture project.
REMODEL DESIGN NOTES
Our clients loved the layout of the home as-is. But with a few little modifications, we made it more comfortable and personal to our clients’ casual lifestyle, as this space would act as a second home to their Ohio property. Throughout the downstairs, we replaced the original dark wood floors with a light blonde oak finish to add warmth to the space. The Front Room features a new large picture window, which let in those amazing Arizona sunsets we know and love, and we designed a dry bar off the dining room featuring quartz countertops, wood floating shelves, and an organic zellige wall tile. In the Family Room, we rethought the existing fireplace and added a new decorative surround. In the kitchen, we added new gold cabinet hardware and two aged iron chandeliers to update the space.
For the upstairs remodel design, our priority was updating the Primary Suite, which featured a private sitting room. We kept the existing dark wood floors to compliment the cooler tones used throughout the furniture design. In the Sitting Room, we opted for Dunn Edwards Novelty Navy paint on all the walls, including the custom built-in unit with a laptop to create a cozy & serene space.
FURNITURE DESIGN INSPIRATION
We wanted to still pay homage to the original Spanish-like style yet incorporate the beautiful soft pastels of the Arizona landscape and pallet to bring something unique to the homeowners. They were used to a more mid-west style and wanted something different than that, so our biggest anchor for the design and selections was “Desert Sunset”. For furniture pieces on the first floor, we focused on a calming and warm, yet youthful palette, warmer tones, and textural pieces like wicker & oxidized woods. We added unique fabrics like fur, linen, boucle, and tribal print rugs to bring it to life. For the second floor, we mixed blues & purples into the palette to give a gender-neutral, yet soft and light ambiance to the space.
