Mill Valley, California

After many years of living in their home, this client was ready to tackle redecorating the living room. We were able to make the case that the living room, dining room and staircase all needed to be done together and the homeowner agreed. One of the greatest concerns we had was the lighting and fortunately we were able to devise a way to conceal it without damaging any of the existing finishes. Our approach was to restore the shell and to furnish the room with contemporary pieces that complimented the space and maximized its use. Textiles and the elegant rug in the living room were primarily by Jack Lenor Larsen. To preserve the original mahogany floor and the furnishings, an electric exterior shade was added that drops whenever sunlight strikes the rear elevation of the house. (2007-2008)
