Project Reveal: Modern French Country Home

Our clients loved the nature and lifestyle of being in the suburbs but also desired the modern and contemporary designs that are found in the city. So when they asked us to design a home for them to retire in, we wanted the space to bring together the best of both worlds. This retreat home (which was featured in Woodlands Lifestyle and Homes!) is a modern, efficient, no-frills space. It was designed to be functional and family-friendly but definitely isn’t light on the luxurious details.

Physical walls used to determine the furniture layout of a room, but architectural designs have since evolved to include more open spaces. I love an open space plan because it gives you the opportunity to create various layouts using sectionals, sofas and lounge chairs! The position of each piece determines how the room flows and what the vibe of the room will be.
