Dramatic Impact

This new design challenge for a repeat client focused on their home’s entry, a large galley through the center of the house. The homeowners had struggled to create an impressive space in what essentially felt like an oversized hallway.

We began by creating a focal point wall to define the space and give it personality. Phillip Jeffries’ Bohemian Bangles wall covering was the perfect choice for a starring role. The wallpaper’s texture and colors offer a feast for the eyes, now highlighted by the custom sconces we selected from Hubbardton Forge. A velvet backless sofa anchors the entire wall composition. With a hue that complements the wallpaper’s vibrant paprika, the furnishing makes an inviting, dramatic statement that not only gives dimension to the entry, but purpose as well. Carefully chosen accessories round out the newly designed area and contribute additional textural interest. The wall décor is actually a collection of aged gas can lids, which create a more lived-in, livable aesthetic.

This project helped a formerly awkward entry mature into a handsome space that represents this family’s elegant home.
