Design, Design & Redesign
Fran felt that it was time to downsize. This was going to be a very difficult task, as Fran loves fine furnishings and is a collector of many fine accessories. She owns many pieces that are of such a high caliber that they will be tomorrow’s antiques. This would be the third home TFT would help Fran design, and it was time for Sally Harris to do some space planning to really see which pieces could go into the new house and which pieces she would have to part with. After extensive negotiations, we created a lovely space that Fran and her many guests enjoy every day.

We call this a “redesign” because everything in the living room, with the exception of the area rug, was purchased many years ago and simply updated. The living room and entry have very high ceilings with unique architectural features. The Coromandel screens with Mother of Pearl Inlay make a very dramatic statement.
A very small family room was painted hunter green by the previous owners. We lightened up the paint color and Fran chose a beautiful aqua animal pattern for her chaise. We decided to have some fun and use an eyelash fabric for accents. These fabrics really came together with a large floral garden painting and a grouping of antique paintings that belonged to Fran’s grandmother.

The powder room was also originally very dark. We decided to transform it. The cabinet was faced with gold leaf and antique mirror and proudly displays a beautiful piece of white onyx for the countertop. The onyx is lit from the underside to create a lovely ambience. Beveled mirror and Marbro sconces on a floral wallpaper complement the design choices and result in a beautiful powder room.

The office went from old and musty to an extraordinary memorabilia showcase. Fran’s late husband Steve was an elite hunter. He had traveled all seven continents and collected many interesting trophies over the years. Those collectibles are lovingly displayed for the whole family to enjoy. This combination of design and redesign to result in exactly what Fran wanted for her home is just one of the many reasons clients return to TFT Interiors Design Studio over and over again.
