For the love of Paris
No matter what the weather brings, This Side of Paris is always a good idea. This winter brought a mixed precipitation of rain and snow - rain mostly. The peace and beauty around this side of the world keeps us coming back with more inspiration for content worth sharing. We continue to make changes on our “reno” list. Construction projects around the house have to be carefully selected. With the winter season still lingering, we are focused on the interior aesthetic. The fifty shades of brown will all need to be fifty shades of modern cabin glam. We are truly inspired by how well the kitchen renovation turned out. You can see the “before” and “after” photos here.
Now that the new roof is completed and the construction mess is out of sight, I am ready to bring a fresh new modern blend of Parisian-Americana style. I am incorporating traditional Parisian colors along with the elements found in nature that surround this property. Designing a 900 square foot cabin requires strategic space planning so that gatherings at TSOP are comfortable and stylish. The careful selection of furnishings is key to putting just the right furniture piece in its right location for functionality and beauty.
Details in construction, such as form and scale are design elements necessary in creating a cozy gathering space suitable for hosting travelers at This Side of Paris. I can’t wait to share the finished design with you soon. Here are my three helpful design tips in selecting living room furniture pieces with limited space and storage.
Multi-functional furniture pieces.
Sectional seating for large gatherings
Case goods with ample storage space that can serve as a wardrobe or linen closet.
