To create a restful, yet still traditional space, designers added soft textures and hues, combining a natural, woven rug with a skirted sofa to create a traditional, timeless space.

Plum painted custom millwork with blue tie-ins and traditional furniture provide a unique and inviting farmhouse style room to make guests feel comfortable and at home. “Purple is a really hard color to work with, but plum is purple with just enough brown in it to make it a little more on the new neutral side,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
The design intent for this urban exterior was to design a version of a traditional brownstone, and to give an appreciative nod to the history and architecture of the older part of town, with an updated look that has an eye towards the future of the community. One of the ways this was achieved was by using an interesting mix of materials. Brick, stucco, custom millwork paneling and cornice detailing, and custom iron details complete the look.
