Modern Style Meets Functional Elegance Redux
AFTER A TORNADO SWEPT THROUGH THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD, REPEAT CANTONI CLIENTS CALL UPON THEIR TRUSTY DESIGNER, NICOLE GEORGE, TO GIVE THEIR COLORFUL HOME A FUNCTIONAL AND UPDATED LOOK.
A prime example of where the trio thought that a multi-functional space would prove beneficial was in the ground-level guest bedroom, which was repurposed as a ‘casita’, where it could also serve as a morning room, professional massage room, and a pool house area for guests.
Blair and Zach loved their main living space so it remained more or less the same, with one differentiating factor: the statement sectional. Still a beloved Gamma design and in the same striking leather, this time the pair opted for the Soho sectional with a detachable ottoman so that in a pinch, it can easily be moved to the corner of the fireplace for additional seating alongside the Lina chairs. Blair’s study also received a colorful facelift, with an all-new desk and teal blue armchairs from Cattelan Italia, and custom artwork Music Books prints from Cobra that pull the entire office together.
Already much loved by the household, the designs that Nicole originally helped select in the dining room and outdoor area stayed the same. The dining area offers an eye-catching contrast from the rest of the home with its dark art-deco wallpaper and high-style Cattelan Italia designs. The custom Spyder dining table effortlessly complements the geometric light fixture overhead, while the Rita side chairs, upholstered in cool grey velvet, bring in a sense of warmth and comfort. And when Blair and Zach want a change of pace, they can step outside and revel in their own outdoor oasis, with an expansive pool, modular seating in their favorite teal blue, and a conveniently placed bistro table and bar stools for dining al fresco.
Once completed, the couple was left with a home that was even better than the original. “I was honored that Blair and Zach came back to me,” said Nicole. “They were able to get a second chance to re-edit areas that we loved originally, but now we were able to rethink the spaces for occupancy as well as design.”
