Prior to remodeling, this spacious great room was reminiscent of the 1907’s in both its furnishings and window treatments. While the view from the room is spectacular with windows that showcase a beautiful pond and a large expanse of land with a horse barn, the interior was dated.
Our client loved his space, but knew it needed an update. Before the remodel began, there was a wall that separated the kitchen from the great room. The client desired a more open and fluid floor plan. Arlene Ladegaard, principle designer of Design Connection, Inc., was contacted to help achieve his dreams of creating an open and updated space.
Arlene designed a space that is transitional in style. She used an updated color palette of gray tons to compliment the adjoining kitchen. By opening the space up and unifying design styles throughout, the blending of the two rooms becomes seamless.
Comfort was the primary consideration in selecting the sectional as the client wanted to be able to sit at length for leisure and TV viewing. The side tables are a dark wood that blends beautifully with the newly installed dark wood floors, the windows are dressed in simple treatments of gray linen with navy accents, for the perfect final touch.
With regard to artwork and accessories, Arlene spent many hours at outside markets finding just the perfect accessories to compliment all the furnishings. With comfort and function in mind, each welcoming seat is flanked by a surface for setting a drink – again, making it ideal for entertaining.
Design Connection, Inc. of Overland Park provided the following for this project: space plans, furniture, window treatments, paint colors, wood floor selection, tile selection and design, lighting, artwork and accessories, and as the project manager, Arlene Ladegaard oversaw installation of all the furnishings and materials.
