Furnishing Project: Addison, TX Townhome
This project was dear to my heart because of the amazing client I got to work alongside. He is a widower of about 7 years and just bought this townhome 2 months prior to hiring Hope Miriam Designs. He decided to sell almost every piece of furniture he owned for a fresh start but quickly became overwhelmed with the number of decisions that needed to be made.
RESIDENTIAL HOME TYPE
3 Story Townhome
Furnished from scratch
This open concept project had the kitchen, living and dining area all in a large area. One of the key goals was to create clear pathways from one stairway to the next along with a separate dining space. We intentionally used a large area rug for the living space to segment that area and floated the sectional to create a natural walkway. Adding the light fixture above the dining space also had purpose in making the space feel like it was designed to be there all along.
Another challenge for this client was creating a vocabulary for what he liked/disliked. We not only visited showrooms but also had a number of meetings around revisions where we would talk specifics on why he disliked an item. While it's helpful to know that something is not liked, it's critical for the design process to understand the "why" so we can get closer in the next design iteration. This process is a journey we love to take clients on!
