A client in Hawaii wanted a vacation home on the Mainland so they could easily visit her parents. The new house had to be turn-key ready for entertaining when they arrived in 5 months! We furnished and accessorized the home, top to bottom, down to the towels and china. They wanted their stateside pied a terre to be formal and traditional, in contrast to their casual Hawaiian estate. Her fave color is cocoa, and the rich dark tone runs throughout. We chose updated classic furniture styles, tactile fabrics, high wainscoting, oil paintings and sculpture to provide the elegance they sought.
