The showhouse opened May 4th to great reviews. So far, the Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, Palo Alto Daily, and Palo Alto Weekly have toured and expressed media interest in the house. The rooms throughout the home are beautifully furnished and decorated, and the house will not disappoint as it is full of original and daring ideas.
Our room turned out beautifully, and truly transformed an eyesore of a space into a room that is not only edgy, stylish and fashion forward, but also welcoming, captivating, and dare I say, sexy?
In accomplishing this feat, we stayed true to our vision for the room. The sketch shows our original proposal to Peninsula Volunteers when we submitted our application in February. Though a few minor modifications were made (i.e. Beatles chairs instead of chaise lounge, painting vs. steel wrapping the beams), we held true to the original goal. The clarity in our objective at the outset kept us focused and all 6 designers on the same page throughout the entire design process. Did we have a few surprises? Of course! All design projects do, but sticking to our guns is what got us through to the finished product!
