Home is Where the Heart Is 1

Swell Decor on warming up your space this holiday season

While December is the month for holiday preparation and celebration, we never lose sight of the importance of family. This particular home is enriched with family heritage and heirlooms. And if those aspects don’t exemplify family enough then just the sight of cozy seating arrangements, a unique dining room fit for a big family feast, and the perfect kid-friendly bunk beds will surely do it.

There is a popular saying that the heart of the home is the kitchen, but we could argue that this home’s coolest gathering place is the dining room. Not sure about you, but we can’t stop admiring this breathtaking space that literally floats within the trees. This unique space was an addition that transformed a normal dining area to a harmonious space between family and food with a fusion of nature. 
We loved that our client had personal items to add to the décor that were sentimental to her. We cherish antiques and try to incorporate these unique touches into our client’s home at their wish. This dining room is furnished with her mothers’ oushak rug, table and chairs and heirloom ginger jars.

Throughout the home, but especially in the main living area, we kept the warm gold, gray and beige accents a theme to create a streamline look. The mixture of creams and light pops of color make this living space feel spacious and welcoming, even with various seating options. There is nothing like having everyone gathered in one room, experiencing the simple, yet most important joys of life.

After spending time with family and reminiscing on Christmas’ past, the ideal late December night would be decorating cookies for Santa and hearing the pitter patter of footsteps running off to bed. Any kid would love a night-time story read from this beautiful wooden rocking chair then tiptoeing up the steps to this built in bunk bed. A child’s bedroom is a fundamental part of their life at any age; therefore we are thoughtful when designing the layout and decor of their special room. We like to style a kid’s room with unique touches that incorporate storage, convenience, and practicality with a fun twist.

Family is a word that holds great significance in our hearts and our work. We strive to illuminate family in our clients’ homes and want them to call their home a sanctuary.
