Usually, getting to the stage of dressing a house takes a long and deep relationship with the clients, after several months of planning, renovating and building, only then I arrive at the ‘crème de la crème’ of the process, the dressing stage. The various objects, including furniture, textile, artworks, gardening, and more which turns a group of walls into a house. By then, the clients are aware of the ‘DNA’ of the project, our professional trust it well founded and I led them on a well-planned ‘hunting’ trip.
Recently I experienced a somewhat different type of a project. A young family who moved from a small apartment to a wide house in Raanana. The house was in a good structural and physical condition, but was old-fashioned design-wise, therefore most of the required work was completely redesigning and redressing the three stories and the large garden from scratch, and in one month before the family moved in. It was intensive and challenging, but it was made possible thanks to clients who trusted me, came with a significant budget and let me run ahead.
Choosing the artworks for the walls is always a challenge, finding object which will fit both the project’s budget and the clients’ taste. The perfect ceramic balloon is by Sivan Sternbach, and unfortunately the wonderful artworks by Oren Zinger and Yair Barak arrived a week after the photo-shooting.
It fun to discover that nature is on your side when we arrived to a shooting day, whose date was decided on long before, to see that the garden was filled with fresh lime-green spring leaves which went extremely well with the kitchen accessories.
Since there wasn’t enough time for a massive renovation in the bathroom we decided to not touch the floor and wall covering, but changing the cabinet and the painted tiles in the niche as well as improving the sanitarian tools and mirror gave the room a completely new appearance.
I brought the little model form home with me 🙂
