A traditional yet modern makeover calms down an overly busy space.
When this Hoboken homeowner requested a contemporary look with a welcoming feel, designer Vanessa DeLeon used a warm color palette mixed with modern furniture choices to get the look. The end result is an urban yet rustic apartment design.
The homeowner was looking for a modern, rustic feel. He wanted the space to be warm, inviting and clean for great entertaining.
The only challenge had to be creating an equal balance between rustic and modern.
Normally when we start a project for a client, we provide renderings that show exactly what the space will look like down to the pillows on the sofa. Doing this leaves no room for error and the client gets exactly what they wanted. At the end of the day everyone is happy.
The porcelain we used on the wall was a great feature. We also found great vintage artwork pieces such as the clock and artwork on the dining area wall.
