House and Cottage

The glitter of history: the ironic alteration of the estate of the century before last

You are tired of boring gray interiors in style"Here you will live, and then you will die"? Welcome to the new house of Stephen Favreau - a designer without borders and prejudices. There is something to see Designer Steven Favreau, the owner of this extremely bright mansion, admits that there are no such limits for him. And the interior of his own house in the town of Chelsea (Vermont) - to confirm this. The house, built almost 200 years ago, wasMade in a colonial style and was able to attract new owners only by spacious rooms and huge windows. Therefore, creating the look of the estate, the designer entered into a hard and, judging by the results, an uncompromising dispute with the gloomy facade of the building, turning his inner essence into a slightly insane, rampant eternal holiday. Stephen Favreau with a smile says that by creatingInterior, inspired exclusively by history and local features. For example, the first owners of this house even in the century before last had also pasted wallpaper with striped wallpaper. True, she was upright and somewhat more boring. And the leopard carpet on the stairs did not just appear: he supports nature outside the windows. Our opinion Juggling with ornaments and stylesIt is better to leave it to professionals, but to create a bright accent from old furniture, it is quite possible for any homeowner who is able to keep a brush in his hand. Look at the turquoise chairs in the dining room. It's not that difficult to do something like that with your own hands, but to organically fit such bright objects into the interior, you'll have to prepare. The shade of the upholstery is best made close to the color of the walls, but to the basis of the chairs it is worth picking up a few accessories in tone to tone. And so in all: Each thing has its own purpose and a clear justification for the presence in the house. In particular, a portrait of a prim woman was hung in the living room especially to make him angry at the orange-colored ornaments and acrylic tables. And still there is a traditional dining table in the best farmer traditions (though it is glass) and a lot of logs for the fireplace ... on the wallpaper in the kitchen. favreauinteriordesign.com
