Bare Essentials - 2016 SECOND PLACE WINNER - ASID - RESIDENTIAL & FIXTURE

A couple of empty nesters decided to downsize and live a simpler life, one involving minimalist environments. They built a house, bought a few pieces and sought professional help to achieve a more edited and unified version for their spaces. The project included assessing existing pieces, and defining the need for new ones while doing a detailed study of the architecture, and reviewing the best options to achieve the clients’ wishes. The scope of the program was varied and comprised custom furnishings, rug designs, paint, lighting, accessories, floral and Ikebana design and last but not least, the design and creation of important artwork for the residence as well as the task to commission work from other artists. This project was exceedingly rewarding. From its conceptual sketches, throughout its evolution and installation, it was filled with the satisfaction that strengthens the vocational core of a designer.
