Contemporary Twist in a Craftsman Style Home
by designer Katie Garman
Update the charming craftsman style home with a contemporary flair. Introduce bold color and design while incorporating classic pieces of wood furniture.
Create a floor plan with multiple gathering areas that offers ample seating to meet their needs. Make design choices that express the clients’ vibrant and stylish personalities Downsizing required replacing the client’s existing pieces with furnishings that are the correct scale for their new smaller digs.
The Success Story
The fabulous contemporary rug with a playful curving design in cream, rust and green sets the stage for the living room. Two bold striped chairs offer a dramatic design element, balanced by a neutral sofa and loveseat. Bright throw pillows add a punch of color. Another rug brings the dining room to life in the same color scheme, but with rectangular designs. Both rugs were custom designed by the designer in collaboration with her clients for the new home. Existing classic pieces are blended beautifully with the modern. A cozy place in front of the fireplace is a separate and intimate place for two. Comfortable Flexsteel leather chairs in a rich deep brown invite you to sit and relax. An Uttermost iron leafy branch was chosen to enhance the brick fireplace. The completed living room design and separate fireplace area are a delight to the eye, while providing all the comfort and personality that the clients desired.
We used the Masterplan approach with Katie as our designer. She did a great job with helping us get the look and feel that we wanted for our home. She was also a big help in selecting custom carpets, shutters and pillows. She went the extra mile to make us aware of different options and kept us informed of order status throughout the project. Katie is a great asset for Pedersen’s.
