Design Consultant, Cherry Yount, had the rare opportunity to make over her boss’s home – the ultimate compliment! Her challenge was to figure out how to balance comfort with style, and find common ground between her boss’s edgy aesthetic and his wife’s classic, more traditional taste.
The bright green, cream and chocolate featured in the drapery fabric that Cherry selected for the family room not only served as a design inspiration, but also introduce a modern edge to the home’s more classic features. Cherry also added a mantle above the existing one, which frames the area for the TV, and selected a modern, chocolate leather sectional from Natuzzi that provides seating for nine.
A John Richards mirror above the mantle and a high-sheen, orange leather bench by Ferguson Copeland helps capture the natural light in the room, while a hair-on-hide accent rug adds interest and texture. Two contemporary chairs from Hammary and Bernhardt make a perfect complement to the setting.
Cherry selected new woven chairs, a glass table, and window treatments for the breakfast area, allowing the rooms to flow together in complete harmony.
In the entry, Cherry designed an architectural moulding for around the front door, which adds a nice feature, but also provides a clear distinction (and paint color) between the dining room and study.
Delighted with the way the house came together, Cherry remarked that the best compliment was when her boss, Joel said, “the house is such a combination of Lynn and me. We feel so comfortable here and love sharing it with others.”
