Recently, I was contacted by a bachelor from Chicago to help him design a vintage inspired condo. These are some of the inspiration photos he sent me....
THIS, folks, is my favorite style. Although I like to work in many different genres, and will do anything a client requests, a pared down vintage look with a European/country/bohemian flavor is what really gets me excited.
The condo is small, but it has excellent bones: hardwood floors, white walls, oak doors, and it's in a groovy area of Chicago (jealous).
I came up with a couple of design plans for the living area. Here is the one he picked:
In the dining room, we are going for this flavor....
In the bedroom, he really liked the rustic wood platform bed in the above photo. Since this room is visible from the dining room and entry, I wanted to see some drama. The jury is still out on which of the looks he will choose:
Recycled Barnwood wall.
A dark grey wall with natural wood and white.
Antique door headboard.
West Elm Bed
Schoolhouse Electric Sconces
Flatweave wool rug
Cashmere throw for luxe
Keep the white walls, add a distressed black vintage dresser, a cool mirror, black and white art, e voila'.
Stay tuned for the kitchen, bathroom, and progress updates. If you are in need of design help, but do not live in the Atlanta area, I am happy to assist on a remote basis! Please feel free to email me to discuss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great week!
