It's been a whirlwind few months, with several of our projects in the middle or nearing the end of construction. While we wait (in great anticipation!) for these projects to wrap up, it's been very inspiring to start work on several new projects.
I am often asked if we design spaces that are not mid-century modern, and the answer is "Yes!" We have an interest and passion in the minute details that are special to older homes, whether it's the craftsmanship of an original built-in cabinet, an exposed brick wall, or gorgeous tongue and groove plank ceilings. One of my favorite aspects of working with clients who live in historic homes is helping them to continue to act as stewards of their homes, while bringing fresh modern touches to the space.
I am excited to share some of the inspiration that has been driving this project. Our client has a background in fashion and it's been extremely fun to collaborate together during throughout the design process.
Here is a peek at the design concept, which we are calling "British Industrial."
Our client is well-versed in British design, so it has been great to discover new brands and talent. Check out some of these lighting options (not all British, but incredible eye candy nonetheless!) These designs would look incredible in any home, from a mid-century modern home to a loft space.
1. PH 5 and PH50, Louis Poulsen
2. Type 75 Maxi Pendant, Anglepoise
3. Rock Suspension Lamp, Diesel Foscarini
4. Revolve Rise & Fall Pendant, Bert Frank
What do you think? Which one is your favorite? Hope you enjoyed this peek into the design process! Stay tuned for the final reveal on this Berkeley Craftsman Home transformation! Till next time.
