Sneakity Peek: Client Apartment

We recently finished up with our clients' gorgeous condo & I have a couple of pics to share.   My client has amazing taste and has amassed lots of collections of beautiful objects over the years.  She was ready for a fresh start design-wise & has a very defined style.  We wanted light & textural and we used a soft pallette of whites, creams, grays, aquas & taupes.  

This (below) is the view down one of the hallways & we went with a horizontally striped rug, which visually widens the hallway:


The apartment has the most beautiful light and the views are incredible.  I'll save the rest of it for when we have it professionally shot but before I go, I do want to share a few of Maureen's collections with you:

{I can't remember what this thing is but it is soooo gorgeous!!!  She found it at a thrift store, like many of her treasures}



{Her collection of vintage trophies is incredible.  I love them just piled together like this.}




{One of my favorite collections she has is her collection of glass & crystal bottle stops that she keeps at the drink station...  so beautiful.}

...Anyway, I'll be sure to share the rest of the apartment when I can!!  Thank you so much to my clients for letting us be a part of your redesign!!

xoxo, Lauren

I can't wait to see more! I love the way she displays her collections - they don't seem to clutter the decor or look overly thought out. Have a great weekend, Cynthia

Isn't it fun when you can incorporate a client's collections? So much personality. Love the crystal bottle stops.

I will never pass up a lone crystal bottle stop again! And of course she has good taste -- she hired you!

Hi Lauren - Though I've been enjoying your blog for a while, this is my first comment :-) Thanks for sharing all these photos. I love the look---want to see more!! The collection of vintage trophies is awesome!! They are harder to find now, and prices have gone up. Congratulations on the baby, and all your success!! Loi Thai

Lauren,

I always love the sneak peaks of your design work! I would never have used a runner in the hall to make it seem wider, what a fabulous idea.

Your clients collections are so great. It is also nice to know that you are the sort of designer that works with the clients things. Of course it helps if they have great things to begin with.

Thank you for sharing all of your beautiful work.

Looking forard to meeting your new family member. YOu look great!

Elizabeth

The unidentified object is a dried fruit. I've seen it on the beach in the Philippines, where I'm from, but I don't know what it's called. When fresh it's a beautiful bright orange.

Oh and great work, this is a lovely home!

Holly said...

I love sneak peeks and yes, the natural light in there does appear to be wonderful. What a unique collection of items and they all look so great together. Hope you enjoy your time off!
