Project Spotlight: Upsal Street

Down2earth Interior Design recently completed our Mt. Airy project. The focus was on the living and dining areas on the first floor. These rooms are now set for the Thanksgiving gathering with family and friends.  Let’s have a closer look.

The living room is the first room you see when entering this Mount Airy home, and the interior used to be very dark. Down2earth interior design recommended light-colored window treatments to replace the dark wood shutters. By adding a pale textured wall covering above the paneled walls we helped lighten the space. Details like the antique mirror accents in the Prism Framed Mercury Glass Chandelier (from Shades of Light) and nesting tables add some sparkle. Nesting tables sourced from Arhaus, below are close ups of each beautiful item.

The Serena and Lily Westerly Bone Inlay table lamps help create balance with the colors and pieces that frame the fireplace. While the Minted “below” limited edition artwork draws the eye and pulls the color through out the room.

The Crate and Barrel Grayson chairs elevate the overall look of the space.

Our client entertains a lot and wanted to maximize seating in her long dining room. Matching chandeliers over an extra-long table filled the space, and added interest and a calming symmetry to the room.

The Francesca Beaded Chandeliers made of gemelina wood beads and hand finished metal frame from Pottery Barn.

Early on that the d2e team and our client decided we were keeping the curtains in the room, it allowed us to chose a dark wall color to provide contrast and created a cozy feeling. Having an eye for detail our design consultant selected curtains with embroidered details to match the cognac-colored chairs. The Gage Leather dining chair in Tanner is from Arhaus.

While the sconces add interest to the wall and additional lighting options for the room.  The Francis sconces are also from Pottery Barn.

Neutral furnishings kept the family room calm and peaceful and allowed the rich blue walls (and the client’s beautiful painting) to be the hero of the room. Touches of brass and shimmer in the light fixtures, accent table and accessories work especially well in a room like this with so many windows.

The beautiful side table on the left is the Euclid End table from Pottery Barn, the antique brass and cast metal finish picks up the metal tones from the stool and vase also in the room.

And since you don’t have to have two matching end tables, the right side of the sofa features a reclaimed wood end table, also from Pottery Barn.
