They did the reno 3y ago but wife had no idea what to do and felt overwhelmed. they've been living in a completely empty space for all this time. He told me I need patience as she is super picky, yet doesnt know what she really wants. The brief was: whites, grays and red--now make my house gorgeous:) We shopped till we dropped, getting everything from furniture to art to small succulents. Out went hideous wallpaper of "bricks" and in with deep gray shlicht, mirroring it on part of the wall i used as a separation point between salon and dining area. The final space is classy, minimalist, clean lines and expensive furnishings. The look is rich yet modest. PS: had a blast working with her and proved to her husband no patience needed and she really did know what she wanted.
