Florida Living Quarters had the pleasure of delivering custom furniture for one of our clients in the Longwood/Markham woods area. We have been working with this client for the past four months to perfect the design for her home. When we first began the design they had some serious water damage and decided that if they had to do it over, the help of a designer would be needed to put things back together again. And that is where we came in. We helped select paint for both the interior and exterior of the home. We created paint schedules for our client and the painters to know which colors we specified for which area. Once we had the paint colors selected we were able to move forward with interior lighting and furniture selection.
FLQ furnished several rooms in the home. We started with the kitchen, nook, living room and dining room. The living and dining were the most challenging because both spaces are combined into one large space with traffic flowing from all directions “the artery room.” The living room focal point is a beautiful large fireplace with tile going all the way up to the ceiling. In front of this fireplace, we circled 4 custom wing back chairs from Lexington Home Brands. On the floor we placed a large transitional style area rug from Surya. A fun coffee table from Gabby home and two stunning floor lamps from Arteriors Home finished off the room. On the wall opposite the fireplace is a beautiful built in unit for storage in the dining room. With this built in we found a gorgeous solid wood dining table from Phillips Collection. The table is a true wow factor. We paired this table with Jet Set dining chairs from Bernhardt Furniture. Its’ sleek, clean lines paired nicely with the organic look of the table. Under the table we selected a textured area rug from Loloi Rugs that matched complimented the chairs and wall color. Paired chandeliers are hung centered for each area – not an easy task with ceilings over 20′ in height.
The next rooms we worked on were the kitchen, nook and the family room. With only a French door separating the two spaces, it was crucial that everything coordinated perfectly. In the nook we selected a table and 6 chairs from Stanley Furniture. Another floral area rug from Surya went under the tables and chairs. In the family room there was a whole wall of French doors out into the yard so naturally these beautiful doors needed some kind of window treatment. We selected a cream and aqua embroidery from Fabricut to make traversing (not stationary) drapery for all of the doors. The hardware we selected was from the quick ship metal collection from Paris Texas Hardware in the rose gold finish. Our client decided to keep their existing furniture for the family room, but we did select a new area rug from Loloi Rugs that is full of color. The rug is a combination of jute and wool to make it both durable and unique.
After selections downstairs were made we moved upstairs to work on the master bedroom and bathroom window treatments. A new product from Hunter Douglas caught our client’s eye. The Solera is a versatile soft shade that was introduced to the Hunter Douglas product line not too long ago. It is kind of like a cross between a Roman shade and a honeycomb. It is becoming increasingly popular with our clients. These shades come in a variety of fabrics and colors. Our client selected a cream room darkening/blackout fabric for her shades since it is in her bedroom. We also placed one of these shades in the bathroom. The master design is still in progress as our client decided she also wants help for the furnishings in the bedroom after she saw how wonderful the rest of the house looked after delivery.
We love how happy our clients are after we deliver all of their furniture. Both our clients and us love to see the change whether it’s small like a new area rug and a piece of art that makes a big statement or a complete room transformation. No project is too big or too small for us and we know that we can help you with whatever your interior design needs are. Please contact us at our showroom in Lake Mary to see how we can help you!
