Summer Vacation: A Midcentury House Project

Since I opened my interior design business at the beginning of the year I’ve been slowly taking on clients.  One of my clients owns a beautiful mid-century home they are slowly updating.  I was hired to help furnish the living and family rooms and make them the perfect spots for the family to spend time together.

We are just in the beginning stages, but have made some quick headway settling on the floor plan, color palette and major furnishings.  I thought I would give you a behind the scenes today into the process of design for this house….

We started with these inspiration images:richardneutrahouse

  In the living room, interior designer Meredith Rebolledo of Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley paired pieces like Philippe Starck’s Eros chairs for Kartell and two 1960s Swedish chairs with the client’s Oushak rug.

My client already owns a beautiful Eames chair, midcentury dresser, and vintage rug that we are building the room around.  We explored floorplan options…

Next, we picked a color palette to help us select the rest of the furnishings and accessories.  Here are the color palettes I proposed.
