Rolling Hills Living


Charles was ready for change. It had been a number of years since he had furnished his family’s home, so he cleared the slate and called Sally Harris at TFT Interiors Design Studio. Unsure of the direction he wanted to take, he offered us his fine oriental rugs and some marble samples to get the project off to a start. He knew he wanted a grand style with lots of seating for family and friends. Charles is a warm, kind hearted man with a “grand style.” This project was exciting for him and for us, as the architect was his close friend. We would arrive and share our vision with these two gentlemen and they were instantly inspired…which led to great things.

Standing in his large living room looking back at the entry, we suggested some arches and columns to update this ranch-style home. Of course, when you line up an arch style opening with a rectangular entry you must create a barrel vault ceiling with tray lighting. The original wall completely blocked the flow of guests entering the home, while the finished entry is very striking with a marble medallion in the floor and tray lighting to accentuate the barrel vault. Now when guests arrive they see many appealing areas in the living room, fireside seating group, pool and lavish bar.

The large living room had a wraparound fireplace which led into a large bar. This wonderful space included two walls of windows facing the pool and grounds. We created many areas for people to enjoy. In these pictures you can see a portion of the new living room where we removed old drapery and installed grand scale wood doors and transoms. Charles chose a large Tudor-style angled sectional upholstered in rich earth tones. The fabrics were cozy and a practical chenille was accented with luxurious silk pillows.

Wonderful changes took place when we opened up the space, unified the areas with a warm golden marble floor and accented each individual area and its architectural features with lighting. Charles and his family are happily living and entertaining in their newly designed ranch-style home. Now this is Rolling Hills Living!
