International Home with American Appeal
Trump Tower Chicago
The client and I met for two days while they were visiting from China. He spoke English and she didn't. The language barrier became a strength in the design. I got a much more physical understanding of what they liked, by pointing at the things they loved I got so much more detail than the typical style descriptors we designers usually use. As the project developed we added some international touches, Moroccan accessories and lighting, to their otherwise American Dream Home.
I sought to create moments that carried your eye through the space. Adding molding and a custom live green wall with floating globe orchis and planters, wallpaper to pull you into the dining room, and adding interest to the open kitchen while still toning down the color.
The details in this space made the room. I added sheers into the blind pockets and draperies in front with a new crown to finish the look. A whole house stereo system sealed the luxury appeal and added even more emotion to their space.
