This house was a joy to work on and I truly had a great time with my clients. Definitely one of my best designs (if I do say so myself !). Also one of my most challenging. (I think I say that every time !) My clients were so excited to get going, get it designed and see it built that it really motivated me. Not that everyone isn’t excited about their home but in this case it was particularly enjoyable. Mostly I recall a lot of “Hello Mr. Sutton…when are we meeting next ?” phone messages and the excited phone calls or emails first thing in the morning from Mrs. Turner after a night of cutting and pasting my plan to come up with the perfect room layouts. Made me smile and was fun to collaborate so much.
I think the toughest part of this was the style. A new one for me; contemporary courtyard home with a nod to deco was my starting point. I won’t ramble here too much other than to say….there we’re moments I didn’t think I could do it. That I’d never get the right look but….voila !! It happened.
