The Urban [un]Bachelor Pad

Wow, as the old saying goes, "time flies when you're having fun"... and that's exactly how this Summer has been for The Chicks! We've been (gleefully) up to our eyeballs in fabulous projects - happily shopping and designing our butts off. However, it's made us truant in blogging! We have a few fab Catch Up Features to share with you, a photo log of what we've been up to for the past few months! We hope you love the spaces, and keep tuned for more to come. This space was a dream job for us because the the young, professional bachelor who was moving into the home was very liberal in his design preferences and granted our team almost complete creative freedom in designing a home that suited his social lifestyle. Being a new development, we had a great blank slate to work with; however, the very linear and modern shell meant that we had to find super key pieces to inject the personality and layered feel our client was looking for. We started with striking wallpaper from Anne Starr Agencies to set a darker, more masculine mood within the space; we then found our statement pieces (such as the seriously pre-loved work-table-turned-dining-table) and custom lighting from Space Lab. We scoured estate and garage sales for the vintage Persian rug to counterbalance the light wood floors, and add in a little traditional glamour. The rest was about seating for an entertaining space and one-off cool finds to fill in the blanks. We had a ton of fun here and hope you enjoy the shots, courtesy of Tracey Ayton Photography.
