Happy to Have the Blues

This 20-year old home was renovated and refurnished with lots of modern updates to transition this busy family to their new empty-nester status. Special details were incorporated in tile, wallpaper, furniture and artwork to ensure an elevated aesthetic. Lively color throughout the home gives a sophisticated boldness in each room. Black glass crystals, selenite and substantial metal details nod to the clients’ love for rock and roll and convey the edge that uniquely showcases their personal style. Let’s talk about some of the fun stuff…

The Living Room

The colors blue and green have been popular in design for decades, but new, fresh interpretations and ranges of these workhorse colors are so fun to integrate into our designs. Here, we took fresh, grassy greens and combined them with a range of blues and neutrals to bring the amazing outdoors inside this Frisco, TX home. We used elevated custom furnishings, lively patterned fabrics and original custom artwork to keep an elegant, yet playful, vibe in the room. The art formation was specifically chosen to acknowledge the room’s 2-story height without making the room feel heavy. And, as usual for NAI, performance fabrics were used to ensure there is no crying if a spill occurs.

The Kitchen and Bar

Bar none, this kitchen and bar backsplash has one of the most amazing tile selections in our portfolio! The waterjet marble with metallic accents is crisp, timeless and just a little bit of edgy…just what the client wanted! The overall classic color palette leverages deep hues in the island and bar to keep the otherwise white kitchen from feeling blah. Colorful art brings the adjacent family room’s design across the house and keeps an open concept area feeling ultra cohesive. And, the various chair frames and light fixtures give the room an eclectic sense of style, precisely personal!

The Dining Room and Study

When it comes to designing these opposing rooms, located just steps inside the entry, we had to curate a 1-2 punch that would allow them to stand as individual spaces, avoid competing for attention, yet still complement each other. Wallcoverings were chosen for each focal wall that were artsy and engaging. Custom artwork with selenite dipped in gold was designed and floats atop the modern wallpaper, featured as the dining room’s “star”. Custom banded drapery, a beautiful round table and chairs and a delicate chandelier all are poised for a lovely dinner party with great food and conversation.

The study’s clean lined furnishings give a light, modern vibe and provide a serene sense to enjoy throughout the workday. It’s equally as welcoming for guests to visit and stay for a chat. We didn’t abandon functionality here, as the multi-level desk is light and airy as it takes on new heights and quietly blends into the sensational chevron wallpaper.

All in all, this project is an infusion of lots of the customer’s favorite things culminated together to make a super fun, super personal impact that they enjoy every day! Want additional design help to make your space perfect? Contact Nicole Arnold Interiors today!
