Modern Luxe

A French Chateau Reimagined

When our clients made the move from the West Coast to Columbus, they brought with them their love of Californian design and a desire to make a new, totally unique home here in Ohio. They value history and mixing the best of what’s old and new so when they purchased their 1900s-era house in Bexley and turned to us to help remodel it, we knew we had a unique challenge ahead of us

They wanted the home to feel light and bright, and full of natural elements, distinct items. Above all else, comfortability was at the top of our mind. For the foyer, we worked with Mark Metal Works to design a one of a kind, 22ft glass chandelier that would set the mood for anyone entering the home. In their living-room we selected Prussian blue sofas and painted the walls around the fireplace a vibrant, Peacock blue. In the dining-room we had a custom wood and concrete table designed, around which we placed chairs that feature animals of the Zodiac. The doors are upholstered with a snake skin print upholstery which is a true show stopper. In the master suite, we kept things neutral, but warm. Starting from a hygee-friendly palette of creams and beiges, we layered in animal hide fabrics and woven rugs. For a last, special touch we worked with our client to frame a surprise gift for his wife: a David Yarrow original photograph that finished out the space.
