French interior design is well known for its sophistication and simplicity. For today’s project reveal, our client hoped for a French Country look with glamorous updates that comfortably supported their growing family of 6. This classic home received a modern update, blending luxurious finishes with comfortable, communal spaces the whole family could enjoy. We’re thrilled to have been able to give them a home that reflects their unique personalities.
When I shop for vintage or antique pieces, what I’m looking for is that spark, something I can connect with on a personal level. I find that many of my clients do this naturally. In their travels or throughout the generations, they have effortlessly acquired beautiful collections that fit seamlessly into their homes. But for some, this isn’t such an easy task.
I have made some fantastic finds over the years. Today, I want to share with you how I shop vintage stores and give you a peek into my favorite boutiques.
As an interior designer, I believe every space in a home should be as beautiful as it is functional. And listen, there is nothing like a beautifully designed, thoughtfully structured, high-quality piece from Century Furniture. Yes, I’m talking furniture! Beds, sectionals, footstools and everything in between.
There’s a reason there are so many reno shows on HGTV. It’s the classic hero story. There are ups and downs, there are good guys and bad ones, and in the end, the homeowner prevails. I love a good challenge, and so of course, I love historic home renovation!
Back in 2006, when I founded the Ohorona24.in.ua Interior firm, I never anticipated that we would grow to where we are today. I guess I had a hope that we’d be where we are now. But looking back, I never thought that we’d get this far so quickly.
“What is your design style?”
It’s a question I get asked all the time, especially when I’m meeting with clients for the first time. And it’s one of the most important questions to ask when you begin working with an interior designer. After all, you are looking for someone to design your home, your sanctuary. A place to build a beautiful legacy for years and generations to come. It’s critical that you and your designer are on the same page.
As an interior designer, you learn about “design rules” early on. But after a few years, your style evolves. Very much like the old adage to “not wear white after Labor Day,” you realize that some rules were meant to be broken!
I always say there is no real “rule book” when it comes to interior design. Really, it’s more like a set of standard industry best practices to get you started. Then you create your own rules. After all, the point is to trust your own design instincts!
Over the years, wallpaper has received a reputation for being an archaic, out-of-style trend. But this couldn’t be further from the truth! At Ohorona24.in.ua, wallpaper never went out of style. Custom-made, intricately detailed, or hand-painted wall coverings are the Classically Current solution for transforming a drab space, and are quite luxurious, especially when made from fine silk or satin. This week we break down our favorites.
