When we started working on a design concept for the Chapman home, I liked that Brittany and Andrew loved the traditional style, but didn’t want it to be too formal. They wanted their home to be comfortable, welcoming and a space they could entertain in without it feeling stuffy. From there, “relaxed traditional” is what I started calling the Chapman’s design style. It also encompassed a few traditional and french touches throughout the space.
LIVING + DINING
Objective: Create a comfortable living and dining space that blends rustic and traditional styles.
Objective: Open up the area to the rest of the living space and create an island that can double as a breakfast bar. Add a butler’s pantry with a wine service area for hosting.
Objective: A fun wish list item for the laundry room/mudroom was a dog shower for their furry friends.
Objective: I wanted to design a space that matches with the traditional ranch style but is a subtle and relaxing retreat for the Chapmans.
The Chapmans were fun clients and we loved working with and getting to know them. Chip and I appreciated their willingness to work with us and give us a few “firsts” of our own! This beautiful home was one for the books, and we hope they live happily here for years to come!
