High Rise Luxury | Design by Cara McBroom
This is another fun condominium project from Grand Dunes! I had so much fun working with this client, who is a local realtor, and who has such fine taste! We loved pushing the envelope, by combining so many opposing finishes, such as gold and silver, warm and cool, colors and neutrals, sparkle and texture, modern and traditional, rich decadence and bohemian charm. The most striking theme throughout, however, would be the use of TEXTURE! Combining textures is such a wonderful way to create warmth and welcome.
In the Entry, we combined mica wall covering, gold, marble, antique mirror and neutral art to help balance all the texture.
Kitchen: New counters, new paint, and some twinkling silver seafan pendants help to brighten the kitchen.
Dining Room: Let me make my heart calm down first… This room turned out so dreamy! We started with a shimmering grasscloth wallcovering, which added the warmth and intimacy we wanted. Next, we installed a drop-dead gorgeous leaf block paper to the ceiling. This gold just glows and reflects all the lights, and balances all the gray! The furniture was next, then the smoke gray crystal pendant chandelier. We decided that some silver driftwood sconces would add some element of nature, and a large gold mirror would balance its rusticity. The clients added artwork from their own personal collection, and viola! I feel that magic was created in the room!
Living Room: This room is very chic, with its clean-lined sectional with bench cushions, and fur accent chairs! Pillows are always a prime opportunity to bring color into a room, in an easy, non-committal way. Two-sided pillows are always fun! You can change your pillows from a seafan print to solid quiet teal, just by flipping them around!
First Bedroom: Talk about texture! This room has it all: grasscloth walls, a chenille bed in a rich teal color that shows light and dark, lambswool pillows, velvet and silver sparkle!
Master Bedroom: We indulged in coral and aqua in the Master Bedroom, for a rich culmination of color and texture!
Second Bedroom: This room can be described as refreshing, with its cool mint and emerald green!
…and here is one last adorable bedroom! I hope you enjoyed! Please email me if you want to have fun combining ideas, creating, and building something beautiful!
