It’s not uncommon that homeowners come to designers with a list of “must-haves” prior to renovation. But for this Philadelphia family, their “big ask” was especially specific: “They wanted a pink velvet sofa,” recalls designer Michelle Gage. The wish proved an apt starting point for what would turn out to be a “bright and cheerful home,” as the designer notes, “something we need more of in 2020!”
“They’re big art lovers, and they were really excited to splash that around, to have lots of color,” explains the designer. But, from a practical standpoint, “they also have two little kids, so they wanted everything to be really durable, while still looking like a piece of art.” Read on to see just how the designer achieved that.
