Michaela Boushie of Addison Tyler Designs and I are excited to introduce you to Reimagined Spaces. You are invited to follow our newest blog series as we showcase Michaela’s exquisite design talent using your spaces. We will provide select applicants with a unique opportunity to have a space in your home reimagined. Our vision for this project is to connect homeowners with elevated home design assistance and have a little fun watching your space come to life. We all have a room in our home that “stumps” us from a design perspective. Allow Michaela to provide you with guidance and a professional design board created specifically for your space.
We invite you to email us a picture of your space along with a short narrative of your dreams for that space. If your space is chosen we will send you a short questionnaire that will allow Michaela to understand your vision, likes, dislikes and the design aesthetic that most appeals to you. Michaela will create a design board and provide it along with links to the materials selected that compliment your space. All reimagined spaces will be featured through this blog.
Let’s get started and have some fun with design.
Today we are looking at a home that was recently purchased by a client of Carolyn’s in the Harvey Park neighborhood in Denver. This home was built in 1955 but recently renovated from top to bottom. The main level is stunning with an open concept living/kitchen/dining area. As a first time homebuyer, the homeowner had a great clean slate to work with, but was searching for some direction on where to start. (Both pictures show staging done before she purchased the home.)
The homeowner filled out a questionnaire that we provided so that we could get a feel for her likes, dislikes and the overall esthetic of the home.
1. What do you consider your style to be? Some options might be- contemporary, traditional, rustic, minimalist, industrial, mid-century modern, bohemian, coastal, mediterranean, modern farmhouse, french country… please add any others that speak to you.
I’m all over the place with this! It is a boho/mid-mod style home in my opinion. I want it to be homey, yet contemporary! Open to all ideas and opinions! I have also attached a picture of the front of the home so you can get a feel for the style of the home itself.
2. Please list the room you would like help with and explain how you use this room.
Living Room – this is the first room you walk into through the front door. It will be used to watch tv, hang out and relax. The upstairs is a quaint space with an open concept. The living room is flows into the dining space, and the kitchen. It is a very open concept.
3. What colors/patterns are you drawn to? Are there any colors that you would like to avoid?
I have put some thought into this and think I would like to incorporate yellow into the space. I also like navy. Grey is what I was thinking for the primary color along with pops of color for accents. The entire top floor is white – white walls, white ceiling, white counter tops, white cabinets. I would like to make the space more homey. I really want ideas with what to do with the big picture window… open to all ideas. I did look at some unique roller shades, which caught my eye. I’d love your inspiration!
4. Is there anything in the space that you would like to keep?
The house is new to me and I am starting from scratch, so I do not have anything in the space right now.
5. What is your budget for this project?
I am on a small budget being this is my first home. I would like to stay under $2000 to furnish the living room.
Michaela of Addison Tyler Designs says “I picked furniture and décor that reflects a trendsetting, dazzling style. I wanted to give her a little bit of glam while still keeping in mind that this is a room where everyone just hangs out and relaxes.”
“It was difficult to settle on one design, so I created two different sets of boards for Paxton to consider. I went a bit fancy and used a mix of high-shine metallics and different finishes- in the wall mirrors, marble coffee table tops, and some fun artwork, while still keeping it comfortable with the sofas and chairs!
My goal was to set a tone of relaxed refinement and pop of posh!”
This was such a fun space to dream about. We truly love watching your homes come to life!
