Delivery at Acuera, Lake Mary

Another busy week at Florida Living Quarters.  On Friday, we had three deliveries; the first one was the largest.  In Acuera, a new subdivision in the Markham Woods area, twenty minutes north of Orlando in Lake Mary, we were up and at ’em early to delivery several rooms of furniture and window treatments.  We had been working with this client since early February on creating a perfect home out of their newly-constructed house.  Our areas of focus were the dining room, family room and breakfast nook.

Dining RoomIn the Dining Room we selected some fabulous art and dining chairs from Uttermost.  The art is titled ‘Festival of Light’ and it is a hand painted piece, which means no two pieces will be exactly the same.  The canvas is metallic silver situated within a sleek, black frame.  The chair has a light, misty blue color with tan floral accents.  The frame is distressed solid birch.  We used one of these chairs at both heads of the table and integrated some of their own chairs on the sides.  For window treatments in the dining room we used the Kasmir custom workroom to produce pale blue draperies with a Greek key pattern.  We chose a sheer and then lined it in order to achieve the light filtering effect that we wanted.  We chose the Kasmir custom workroom because sometimes their lead time, or production time, is shorter than having the draperies made in a private workroom.  We chose hardware from Paris Texas Hardware’s Portfolio Collection



Family RoomIn the family room we laid it out so that there is plenty of spacious traffic paths, avoiding the sight line to the TV, and so that it is a room convenient for conversation.  We used many different vendors in this room.  The leather club chair and console are from Hooker Furniture.  The club chair is made of alanine dyed leather with a kiln dried wood frame.  The tufted back gives this chair a traditional flair.  The entertainment console has an antiqued mirrored cabinet doors with adjustable shelves on the inside for plenty of storage.  The sofa is part of the Personal Design Series from Lexington Home Brands.  The image to the left is simply a computer-generated image of how it will look with those fabrics and not how it looks in real life.  It is a great tool to get an estimate of how it will look in the end.  Lexington’s Personal Design Series allows you to change absolutely everything about their sofas.  They come in different size and any fabric imaginable.  You can customize the arms, skirt, cushions, and pillows.  The other arm chair is the Kandy Armchair by Uttermost.  Upholstered in a taupe velvet fabric,  a solid wood frame and brass nail heads, this chair gives the room some warmth and charm.  The sofa table is also from Uttermost.  It is uniquely made of mango wood.  The distinctive legs and dark, weathered stain make this piece stand out.  Over the large sliding glass doors that looked over into their private backyard, we hung stationary designer pleat drapery with a subtle pattern.  We used hidden hardware from Dixie Textiles so that we didn’t interrupt the effect we were going for.  With this light faux silk from Fabricut we wanted to draw the eye upwards to acknowledge the wonderfully tall ceiling.  The coffee table is a new introduction from Stanley Furniture.  The top is made of dark walnut veneers and the legs are metal coated in a gold leaf finish.  The exciting area rug is from the Caesar collection from Surya.

In the breakfast nook we used Fabricut again for stationary Roman shades.  Our fabulous workroom made the shades right here in Lake Mary.  We went with Stanley Furniture for the table.  Its central pedestal make it perfect for a smaller space.  Our client has a built in bench seat so we selected a faux leather in a grey color from Maxwell Fabrics.  Our workroom also created their custom bench cushion.

After about 2 months of planning we were able to deliver this client’s perfect home.  We gave their new home character that they can enjoy for years to come.  If you are interested in redesigning one room, or the entire house,  we can help you out!  Following our process for design is simple and easy and you can have the home of your dreams.  Stay tuned for more inside looks on our projects and deliveries.
