Designing for your house: How do you mix personal style and the style of the home?

This is a common question our clients ask, and we can't wait to share our thoughts!

Mid-Century Modern Ski Chalet in Bartlett, NH

Oftentimes, clients have a hard time finding a way to incorporate their personal style in a home that really doesn't match their vibe- at this Ski House in Bartlett NH, we showed our clients how to do just that. We reduced the amount of wood everywhere and kept the dark stained beams and the pine trim but cleaned up the ceilings with a fresh coat of creamy white paint. (Sherwin Williams Alabaster) We brought the wood back in with a warmer and lighter tone on these flat-panel modern cabinets from Imperia out of Bridgewater, MA.

By lightening the ceilings and bringing the wood back in on the cabinetry, lead designer and business owner Hannah Guilford feels as though she helped ground the space and make it feel bigger and brighter than it was before. We love the look of wood, but sometimes it's the contrast of materials that really allows for the wood to become a star.

A pop of red...

A pop of red is a bit of the client's flare and personal style, without taking over the entire kitchen and changing the feel of the space. This home felt more like a hunting lodge than a ski lodge, but with some carefully placed fur throws, aged leather midcentury chair, and simple clean lines, this house has become the perfect landing zone after a day on the slopes.
