A Color Inspired Art & Design Event Celebrating A Charming Condo Renovation & A Vibrant Art Collaboration
Can a space have too much charm? Of course not! Can a space have too much color? Well, yes. Don't get me wrong now - I love the chance to experiment with an unlimited color palette, but I believe there's an art in how to incorporate the perfect amount of color. And sometimes the art is literally just that - a piece of art! For this Julia Street condo renovation, I called on New Orleans Artist Becky Fos to add the perfect pop of color with a custom-made, colorfully painted saxophone. The outcome? Extraordinary!
When I walked into this loft for the first time, I knew immediately that I wanted to open up the floor plan and neutralize the bones in my redesign. I began by rearranging the kitchen. I relocated the pantry, widened the island, and removed part of a wall to open up the space. With the new and improved layout, the condo is now more functional and open, with even two areas to sit and eat!
I also wanted to let the natural texture of the brick speak for itself, so we stripped the avocado green paint off the walls and BAM! What a difference having a neutral backdrop makes! By using the earthy, neutral tones on the walls and furniture, I was able to drastically transform this space into something special.
However, the project was a little more in depth then just colors and space planning. We relocated the light fixtures and added interior windows to bring the character of this space to the next level.
And of course, I always say, "No home is ever complete without the charm of some artwork and a POP of color!" :-)
