Our clients are busy parents of five kids, who wanted their home to feel “uncluttered and clean” for when life gets a little messy. They didn’t want to sacrifice style, luxury, their love for color, or any part of their full family life. By blending in color, form, and function throughout the spaces and taking into consideration how each element works together holistically, we created a space that is inviting, exciting, and a reflection of our client’s own style and culture—a space where they can live, work, and play. Throughout this renovated 1900’s Craftsman-style Bungalow, this family’s personality wasn’t overlooked. Each space possesses its own expression of texture and materials that give layered depth to the senses: both sight and touch. Family is an important thread in everything our client does, so we regarded the use of lines throughout the space as a representation of the close bond the family shares. Steady angles, classic lines, and geometric shapes come together and work cohesively throughout the design.
Each child’s room is full of character from the patterns on the walls to the pillows on their beds. With the use of geometric, patterned wallcoverings, we personalized each room with depth and color. Their rooms were also designed with either bunk beds or lofts to maximize the space for more room to lounge or play. The master bedroom was inspired by our client’s favorite vacation spot: Chicago. Taking cues from Chicago’s signature urban aesthetic and enviable interiors, we started with eye-catching furniture that’s rooted in a blend of architectural influences. A modern, luxury, handcrafted wood tub by NK Woodworking Design is the centerpiece of their completely open concept master bedroom and serves as a functional form of fine art.
