Before the papers were even signed, this family of five contacted Alison Watt Interiors. Having worked with her in a previous residence, they knew they needed her help to make this larger house in a Massachusetts coastal town their home. Listening to their preferred aesthetics of traditional English decor, Alison Watt Interiors discovered that they also had a modern and fun side to the family. AWI spent time with each child to create their dream bedrooms. This led to a custom desk straight out of LegoLand for one child, decor inspired by Steampunk for another and a delightful combination of bold patterns and neutral colors for the youngest.
For the main areas, every surface and space - although extremely elegant - is completely kid friendly. Have a cold drink? No worries - set it down on anything! A 2-story home office now has plenty of style with modern, upscale furnishings that attend to every need of a work-at-home life including a comfortable sofa, an adjustable desk, even a stand for the guitar that aides brainstorming! In this house made for entertaining, AWI focused on all areas inside and out to create the sense of luxury that the home’s layout suggests with the practical function that the family desires.
The couple went on to have to AWI work with partner Stephen Watt, Architect, to design major unfinished areas for the family to grow into. This includes a home theater, a home gym and an upscale bar and game room for Friends Night.
Alison Watt Interiors was hired by a family who had relocated to New England after spending time in other parts of the world. They asked that their living room reflect the design sensibilities of what they most appreciated from these experiences. Included in the list was Roosevelt’s Library in Hyde Park, NY, historic homes in Central Europe, the works of Mackintosh and William Morris. To address the challenge, AWI featured an intricate stencil painted by Elizabeth Persing and tied in the stylish but comfortable custom furniture. Cornices and pendant lighting completed the composition.
Delighted with the results, they asked AWI to move on to other projects in the house which included a modern guest bathroom, dining room window treatments, wall colors and a custom designed home office. In addition to cabinet design and layout, colors, curtains and pillow design, this room’s highlight is a custom floor designed by AWI which combines Cherry and Birch woods for an Arts and Crafts effect. The crowning touch is a Saarinen Executive Chair, 24k gold edition.
