Hamptons Interior Design Long Island

Revisiting an Old Friend

When you connect with a client through quality design that prevails for almost two decades, you can usually expect a repeat customer. Durable fabrics, well made furniture, and comfortable design allowed this family room to endure and shine for five very active children from infancy to college coeds! At Marilyn H. Rose interiors, when it comes to our Interior Design Long Island and Hamptons Interior Design projects, a room designed for an entire family to create lifetime of memories is one of our favorites!We initially designed this family room in a very traditional style to blend well with the rest of this lovely home.

However, now the clients would like to change it up a bit with a more transitional approach. A challenge that we are definitely up for. We will incorporate furniture lines that are simple, yet sophisticated, featuring either straight lines or rounded profiles. New fabric patterns, designs and textures will facilitate transition into the transitional. The color scheme will incorporate rich blues, buttery creams, and possibly an animal print for a fun pop! With the family room open to the kitchen, this new palate will also compliment the elegant window treatments previously designed by MHR Interiors pictured below.

Since technology has grown in leaps and bounds in the past two decades, we also need to address these changes in our new design. Televisions have lost their enormous bulk, and have evolved in sleek flat screens that no longer require deep housing in custom cabinetry. We will rework the dark, rich cabinetry, still pristine to address these advances. For visual interest we will adorn the shelves with unique accessories in a more transitional style.

Finally, as families grow, their hobbies do too! For this large family, golf has become a major passion, and storage has become a major issue. A dilemma that designers often face, beauty versus function! At MHR Interiors we have come up with an ideal solution. A storage closet constructed and designed in the same handsome style as the cabinetry that already exists in the room will hide away the clutter while maintaining the beauty.

Remember revisiting an old friend does not necessarily mean out with the old and in with the new. A change in style and family needs can still incorporate original pieces with new additions, blending styles throughout the home in a creative way. Looking forward to sharing how our new design turns out!
