The last part of this reveal has taken a bit longer to produce because the pictures were not coming up sharp. So, my apologies. But, here it is…the third part of our Newton reveal. The remaining rooms include the formal living room, dining room, and sunroom.
It made sense to create the design scheme of these rooms at the same time because they connect to one another. It was important for the flow to feel like a cohesive story while allowing each room to have its own personality. After decorating several other rooms in the home to the delight of our clients, they really allowed us to have creative freedom with these rooms while still being involved in the process. Our clients are so happy with the results as are we!
This Newton home has a formal feel and lots of character with beautiful molding and wainscoating, high ceilings, and decorative fire fireplaces in many of the rooms. We wanted to play up these wonderful details, at the same time not make these rooms too formal. In the living room we wanted to create a space for our clients that felt cozy and inviting. A place where they could entertain or sit and relax themselves. Transitional chairs and sofas are upholstered in Ralph Lauren fabrics which also adorn the windows. We added unique iron lighting and tables, an antique French clock, a JD Staron custom rug, and lovely artwork from galleries in Needham and Atlanta.
The dining room holds a lot of drama with high gloss navy walls, custom rug, crystal chandelier and luscious velvet upholstered chairs. However, there is still a lightness about the room, an airy feeling that we at Catherine & McClure Interiors try to bring into all of our rooms. We accomplished this with Pierre Frey sheer drapes, bright colorful art, and lots of glossy bright white paint to balance the dark navy walls. We were also able to convince our clients to have our decorative painter completely re-invent their once dark brown dining table and buffet piece. The result is a more delicate and lighter look that fits beautifully with the decor and our client was thrilled because she was able to use furniture she already owned. We just gave it a makeover!
Our client asked that the sunroom be a happy place and very comfortable as this is where she spends most of her time relaxing and working. So, that is just what we made it. With Jane Churchill’s floral fabric as our inspiration, we added solids and a plaid keeping the palette to various shades of blue with lots of white. Our client loves her whole house but this has become her favorite room. No matter what the temperature is outside, this room always feels sunny and warm.
Hope you enjoyed the last part of this reveal! This was such a fun project to work on. It’s always so gratifying to see it all come together but disappointing to have such an enjoyable project come to an end. As always, to see this project and others like it, check out our website Catherine & McClure Interiors and keep checking back for new posts!
