Home Tour with the Perfect Mix of Pattern and Chic

If you have dining rooms on the brain, you’re not alone. Every time the weather starts to turn chilly and my calendar is filled with dinner after cozy family dinner, I start dreaming of the perfect dining escape. One that looks a lot like this wallpapered + gilded space from Studio McGee. It has their signature mix of pattern and sparkle, eclectic and chic and that aforementioned dining room tucked inside. Have a look at the full tour captured by Brittany Rose Bowen in the VAULT.

When we started working with this client, their family had just moved from San Francisco to Utah into a gorgeous home with great bones, killer views and a serious need for furniture. Their request was that we go dark on the walls and quote, “Do what you do, Shea.”

What a dream!

I had been saving this floral print fabric for a special project and I knew this was the one. Our team immediately got to work developing plans based around its awesome print and color scheme.

We wanted to create a formal living space that was beautiful, but didn’t take itself too seriously. Quite frankly, that is always my goal when designing spaces – beauty, livability and personality. I’ve found that the key to doing that is to mix styles, incorporate vintage pieces and be just a little bit daring.

When you first walk into the home, the formal living and dining rooms face each other, so it was really important that the designs talked to one another without looking too contrived. The clients wanted a more formal space that was still livable and inviting for big family gatherings. They were an absolute dream to work with and really trusted us to do “what we do” and I think it totally paid off!
