French doors open wide on a home that pays tribute to both the rolling hills it is surrounded by and also the rustic elements of driftwood and a softer palette as you are greeted at the entry way with the international symbol of hospitality, a pair of tapers in the flanking brass candle holders, that provide a bit of symmetry as you enter through the French doors.
French doors open into a beautiful foyer area that allows the eye to travel straight through to a beautiful seating area arranged around a stone fireplace that goes all the way up the the apex of the vaulted ceiling.
Michelle also created dual pairs of custom framed, original acrylic on paper of the beauty that surrounds this area of High Country. Art placement services are one of Michelles’ fortes as she not only customized the artwork to the space above the consoles at the entrance, but she is also a master picture framer and selects all of the moulding used and designs each piece for it’s placement in her interior projects.
Light, bright, clean and casual were attributes we wanted to invoke so, after a palette of whites, neutrals and greens were chosen, we were off to the races. Art placement is one of Michelle’s fortes and as the artist for all of the artwork that you see here, it was of special interest to make sure all of the artwork was exactly what her clients were looking for. Getting it all wall ready in customized picture framing was the icing on the cake! Michelle’s art placement services were just the ticket as she personally hung all of the pieces in the home.
Touches of the coast meets the rolling hills of Greensboro, NC can be seen throughout this lovely home created for a couple that transitions easily between this space and her main home in South Florida. A cozy and casual spot that is agile and the vibe is an overall feeling of elegant casual meets a whole lot of comfort. We brought in quite a few levels of dimmable low lighting for a calming entry…a beautiful environment in which to be greeted.
These clients also didn’t bring a ‘stick of furniture’ with them so we started with a clean slate and an open mind about how the home could be used and what it could accommodate with a little thought out planning and a beautiful palette as a great jumping off point.
