Client: University of the Pacific Tri Delta Delta Delta Sorority House Interior Design Update
Overall design direction: To capture the charm and elegance of the historic home using the Tri Delta colors in the finishes and throughout. I wanted to bring back the youthfulness for girls living here a feeling of chic yet classic.
Description of Design: In some areas I’ve created specific sitting, reading areas similar to what you would find in a Boutique Hotel while still maintaining an open floor plan.
In the main living space I’ve created two symmetrical groupings grounded with patterned area rugs to break the contrast of the overall flooring (which will be medium dark) There are two floor plan options and either way allows this space to be utilized to its max ability.
I’ve paneled each window that creates beautiful drama and repetition to the space as well as the seating. All fabrics are Grade B (durability) I’ve balances shades of blues with pops of gold and silver throughout. The entry way
has a bold and dramatic feel, elegant but chic. I’ve selected a wonderful wall paper that is the perfect shade of blue and a pattern that will be classic for years to come. For the area rugs I brought in more of a heavier pattern for
Usage. The console tables are glam and classic, white and gold. These will stand the test of time paired with the classic navy lamps, and two vertical gold mirrors that really open up the space. Above are two new gold statement
Chandeliers that are much needed and really add a wow factor. This will really set the tone for the entire house. Into the living spaces I’ve carried the same navy blue into the lower painted walls all the way around with fresh white on top allowing the space to feel fresh, and open. With the beautiful classic windows I didn’t want to cover them up, I wanted to really make a statement and create repetition along with the seating. I’ve pulled blues and shades of silver and gray in the fabrics, which are all grade B (durability) and used pops of fun colors for accent pillows. With the overall flooring (carpet being mid-range gray) and the lower walls being painted navy the space needed to still stay light and fresh so I created two symmetrical seating groups breaking the contrast using two area rugs with a pattern that pulls the colors from the drapes and allowing the sofas sitting on top to be a mid-range also grade B for durability. I’ve selected some fun coffee table options that are great for durability and adds to the drama of the color combinations. I’ve carefully selected some of the most beautiful lamps that really pull the space together. With the room being so large the color from the drapes needs to be seen in a few other places, so I’ve chosen artwork and lamps to pull that balance in. I’ve provided two options for TV and or Mirror options in the main space and to complement the space I thought it would be fun to capture a variety of girls who may over time live in this large wonderful home. I’ve selected illustrated young girls to create a “gallery wall” there are 3 different ways to display this depending on the decision of a TV or mirror. With the pops of color in the art, accent pillows and unique patterns this space will be transformed into a chic yet historic living and enjoyable space for the years to come.
