Functional Room Refresh | Decor

cecyjrendering

This was a fun room refresh we did for a client.  Her previous designer did a terrific job creating a beautiful room but the client wanted the space (which was right off the kitchen) to feel cozier and be an easy place for the entire family to lounge.

We added book shelves for warmth and easy access to games, a modern custom sectional with lots of room for everyone.  We also added two swivel chairs so conversation could easily move to the breakfast table if kids were over there doing homework or a family member wanted to engage in conversation while enjoying a Sunday morning coffee…

So, I’m knee deep in house hunting.

It’s been a fun adventure but I will admit I’m anxious to find the “right” home.  I’m one of those people that it has to “feel right” not just be the right location, good square footage or a killer investment.  I wish I could leave my emotions out of it… but here we are… still searching.

I fell head over heels for a Mid-Century home built in the 1960’s today.  It reminded me of the house I grew up in which, of course, led me to tears thinking of my late dad as we drove away…

I’m left daydreaming of steel beams, glass walls and a gigantic concert fire place!  Here is a little mid century inspiration just in case your modern dreams came true today too.

I came across the photo tour of the Costal Living Coronado Showhouse via Derring Hall today and it’s truly everything you would hope for in a California Beach retreat.

Built by Flagg Coastal Homes and designed by Los Angeles based Betsy Burnham and Max Humphrey, the home is a true nod to fresh, elegant and casual California living.  I love that they did everything they could to take advantage of the ocean views by putting the sleeping quarters downstairs and the living space upstairs.

I’ve been in a rather “traditional home” mood lately and nobody seems to be doing it better than Sawyer | Benson… an architecture, landscape, and interior design firm based out of New York City.

Their thoughtful mix of traditional exteriors paired with more modern and clean interiors is truly inspiring.

A few of my favorite snaps from their various projects.

Enjoy!

CecyJ Holland Sherry Wallpaper

I’m loving everything about Holland & Sherry‘s new Wallpaper Collection, Archetype.  With 37 colors in this hand painted line, and all made in the USA… I can hardly wait to use for an upcoming Powder Room project.

CecyJKitchenRender

It’s been an exciting Spring 2014 getting some large remodel projects to completion and preparing to take some time off for SUMMER.

We will be opening a new Studio for our clients to visit in the Fall and launching our new website that will have a little boutique “virtual” store.

Thanks for always checking in with us over at Cecy J Interiors.  We’re so glad you’re here with us.
