Design Style: Edgy Elements

13_Living 2.jpg

Most people don't know that I sang in rock and roll bands in my teens and early 20's. As a result, I still love leather, animal and reptile skins, fringe, bling and everything else that goes with both edgy fashion and edgy design. I hold back, of course, when I know I have a client who is not on board with the idea of a touch of the unexpected. It is my natural tendency, though, to want to incorporate something that will add that extra wow factor to a space.

This is one of my favorite spaces. My client, Andrew, had this large vintage poster in the space already, and that served as the inspiration for the rest of the room. I love the fact that in this case, the client already had the edgy element, and so the rest of the space had no choice but to follow suit. The cocktail table is made from a piece of glass sitting on top of a "church truck," which is used to move caskets. Instead of opting for the standard hum drum neutral furniture we also pulled two of the dominant colors out of the poster.

You can see the rest of the photos from this project in our gallery here. Thank you, Andrew, for putting your trust in me.

Designing spaces you love to live in,
