family cape with modern flair

This family wanted to move! But we knew we could renovate and redesign—and they could love their house again. We stripped away 70s-era details throughout the house, cleaned up the millwork, and brought in a personal, family-friendly and eclectic style. We created an effective floor plan in the family room, combining plush velvets with rustic woods. We wrapped the dining room in a chunky weave grasscloth, had a custom-made trestle table topped with zinc, and sourced modern lighting from Spain. As self-professed mess-makers, the client said no rug in the dining room, but knowing we needed the visual organization and impact of a rug, we sourced an “un-rug”—a custom mat that can literally be hosed down. Updated, personal and stylish—no need to move!
