Playing off the grey paint tones on the walls, Pam started with art. She brought in two mirroring photographic prints — one in fuchsia and one in orange — set at either end of the space as color anchors. For the dining room, she selected an abstract painting that incorporated colors from both ends of the space into the center. “The art helped the couple visualize the flow,” Pam says. “They were able to see how the trio of spaces and colors would work together.”
From there, Pam brought in custom furnishings. She paired the Menlo Park sectional in light grey with several white Tulip tables, which set the tone for vibrant custom-designed rugs with bold stripes and hues. In the dining room, Pam matched a custom Cortina dining table with classic mid-century modern armchairs, set over a pretty neutral grey rug, and hung a glittering chandelier overhead. Pam added functionality and room for comfortable entertaining in the third section with a custom upholstered sectional, the Stream end table, Samba cocktail table and Saturina table lamp. And, in bringing the project full-circle, they chose the Eclipse swivel barstools in ebony suede to match the kitchen. “The space now has an abundance of energy,” Pam says. “It’s a complete breakaway from their previous home.” The client agrees. “Pam is great to work with — she’s very knowledgeable and professional,” she says. “She hears her clients’ needs, determines their style, and is able to achieve a gorgeous contemporary look that is both functional and beautiful.” And, not to mention, one with the just right amount of vivacity.
