Seeking a down-to-earth retreat for a town home remodel in Berkeley, our clients wanted to update their Transitional 1980s town home in a Traditional style, while maintaining the structure’s original architecture.
The color palette bridged two styles, with high-meets low furniture in the dining and living room. Patio windows, covered with neutral, organic roll-up shades with lots of texture, allows filtered light to infuse the home with subtle shades of green from the home’s beautiful gardens.
Organic fiber wall covering adds another layer of texture to a relaxing and peaceful environment enhanced by a soothing, well integrated color scheme.
An updated gas fireplace replaced an inefficient, wood-burning version. Surrounded in glass tiles and framed in marble, the efficient gas burning fireplace and built-in bookshelves lessen the visual emphasis on the television — and promotes conversation around a fire. (For more details about the fireplace remodel, click here.)
The couple’s bedroom was created as sanctuary. We invoked a sense of calm with muted grays and pale blues, then enlivened the environment with just the right amount of shimmering straw-colored pillows and throws. The fabric-padded headboard nestled beneath a slanted roof-line creates a cozy and comfortable cove to curl up beneath sultry linens and bedding.
