Denver Interior Designers REINVENT FURNITURE

New is always better!  We all have pieces of furniture we love but, over time, have become worn and need some TLC.  As long as your pieces of upholstery have good structure/frames, adding new fabric and detail can be just the ticket to bring your old furnishings back to life!  Our client loved the overall style and comfort of her sofa and bench, although both needed to be updated.

One of The Goode Touch Interior’s designers, pictured on our client’s old sofa below, is noting that comfort is a key factor for our client, so down-wrapped cushions will be replaced for both seat and back cushions.

The bench is used as both a foot rest and coffee table so durability was very important when selecting new fabric.

Our client recently inherited a beautiful antique pillow cover and wanted to incorporate it as an accent pillow on the sofa.  A turquoise blue pillow insert was designed so the color peaks through the spaces between the button closures, while decorative silk tassels were added for the finishing touch.

Pictured below, the new fabrics & trim completely transformed the sofa and bench! The client was in love at first sight! The sofa was reupholstered with a textured linen fabric from Kravet and the skirt was accented with decorative tape.  Two additional throw pillows were created with a cream background to accent the antique pillow and contrast with the main sofa fabric.

A commercial-grade Pollack fabric was selected for the bench because of its durability.  Its soft, brushed nap gives a luxurious feel and the metallic welt cord frames the cushion beautifully.

We designed the sofa with the original welt detail and a flat flange on the pillows for diversity.

To bring attention to the sofa’s skirt, a Highland Court tape was applied at the bottom, giving a tailored appearance.

The antique pillow turned out to be the perfect centerpiece for the sofa.

And the silk tassels give the pillow the extra detail it was calling for!

Interior Design Space Planning

Have you considered all of your options for the form and function of your room?  Before purchasing furniture, you should feel comfortable with your decision in selecting the appropriate pieces by knowing your size requirements.  At The Goode Touch Interiors, we help you understand and visualize functions for your room through computer aided drawings (CAD).  Below, are three different options we provided for a client’s living room:

option 1

option 2

option 3

Let us help you visualize with your next design project.

Littleton Colorado Custom Window Treatments

Our client had original wood shutters on all of her guest bedroom windows from when the home was built. Although they were a nice quality, they didn’t provide the softness desired or complimented the furnishings and window trim detail. She wanted to bring another decorative element to the room and still provide shade and privacy.

The first guest bedroom has 2 beautiful antique Twin beds with wood inlay and intricate carving. The bedding is in antique style quilts with a soft blue/green paisley pattern. We wanted to compliment the bedding by using a similar motif but scaling down the size of the pattern.

The custom romans were designed to bring a more traditional, historic style to the windows to compliment the antique furnishings. The style of these romans is called Stagecoach Soft Roman – appropriate for the period of the beds.

Because the beds in this room are both Twins, taking its guests in mind, we wanted to bring a playful element to the window treatments but keep a refined detail using Ribbon bows with a metallic thread stitching.

The second guest bedroom has a more masculine feel to the furnishings but we wanted to still bring a softness and interest to the windows. Because the placement of the windows was set in the corner of the room, creating custom inset romans was a better solution to drapery panels with an angled drapery rod.

The bedding in this room is more simple in nature, so we chose to bring movement and interest through pattern to the windows. To maintain a more masculine feel, we chose a flat style roman to with simple valance. This style lets the pattern be the prominent feature of the custom window treatment.

The bedding also has a subtle grey/blue bordered pattern to the duvet. We incorporated a border detail to the custom romans by adding a contrasting fabric to the edges of the roman and the valance.  This detail tied all of the soft furnishings in the room beautifully.

KITCHEN TRANSFORMATION

Flow is just as important as function and storage when it comes to a kitchen’s design.  The challenge for our client was that her kitchen felt, “closed off from the rest of the home,” which has a modern open layout.  The cabinets, countertops and backsplash were standard builder selections and fell short of adding any excitement to the space.  Our client’s number one wish was to open up the kitchen to the rest of her home.  Adding color and selecting rich finishes would give way to a dynamic personality for her kitchen.  She didn’t have the budget to overhaul the cabinets but knew it needed some life and light. These photos are of the original Kitchen…

We removed a section of cabinets that separated the kitchen from the living room in order to achieve the open-flow design our client was intent on.  A beautiful granite slab replaced the original tile countertops.  Task lighting was an issue so additional ceiling cans and under cabinet lights were added to improve the light quality throughout the space.

The taupe glass tile brings movement and pattern to the backsplash and is highlighted by the under-cabinet lighting.

The upper cabinet doors were replaced with frosted glass panels to give a more open, light feel.

The finishing touches to the renovation: a rich Benjamin Moore paint color selected for the kitchen and hallway, and a fabulous Laura Weitzner wall covering applied to the floating wall…color and texture are easy ways to bring attention to an architectural element.

In the end, the room was transformed from an ordinary kitchen to a space the client absolutely loves!!!
