We recently reupholstered 3 antique pieces in contrasting bold hues and prints for a modern twist.
We started by upholstering the antique sofa in a denim blue color, along with a yellow ottoman. This client also requested that we create two custom throw pillows, which we did in a navy pattern with yellow piping and a yellow reverse side, the same yellow as the ottoman. As a final touch, we upholstered an antique armchair in the same patterned material on the throw pillows.
The result is a living room that looks cohesive, without being matchy-matchy. The fresh fabric updates keep the antique furniture from looking dowdy.
These homeowners opted for an interesting blend of styles for their window treatment. We started off with a set of Shangri-La shades. These modern-style blinds allow for an elegant light filtering system that’s easy to customize.
For their valance, we went with something more traditional, a set of Kingston Swags with a classic pattern. But if you look closely, you’ll see that the classic window treatment has an unexpected twist–bright green lining!
The result is an interesting mix of traditional and modern that is truly unique to this home.
If you invest in a classic piece of well-made furniture, it’s likely that you won’t need to replace it again. This doesn’t just keep materials out of the landfill. It allows you to make memories around your piece, which you can then pass down to future generations.
This sofa had high wooden arms, creating a cozy nook. The piece was in great shape, but the fabric needed an update, so we reupholstered it in a velvet fabric printed with hexagons.
We love the geometric look! The result is very classic and elegant. A cozy and stylish place to curl up with a book!
We are excited to share this photo from a recent project, where we designed, created, and installed gold-colored drapes for one of our clients.
Such a large and elegant window called for a set of custom drapes. This homeowner opted for a classic set in a pale yellow with green stripes. Take a look at the photo below, we think the results turned out very nicely!
Custom nooks are a specialty at Rosen Interiors. We really love how they add a charming touch to the homes where we install them. Each one is a little different, so they’re unique. But they’re traditional fixtures, making them classic at the same time.
Most recently, we completed the one you see below. This homeowner chose a dark finish for the wooden seats that contrasts with the custom cushions, which are done in a lighter red and cream pattern.
Choosing drapes for your home is an opportunity to be creative. Will you choose a contrasting color for a vibrant burst, or perhaps one that matches your wall color for a more subdued look?
Then, there are the drapes themselves. You could install valances, swags, or choose from a long list of different styles of pleating.
This client chose a set of pinch pleated drapes in a soft yellow to match their walls. The sleek folds create leading lines that guide the eye and make the ceiling appear higher. The drapes hang from several inches above the window, which has a high, deep sill. This fresh approach to proportion adds visual interest to the room.
Most antique furniture is built to last, but the fabric can get damaged or look tired.
The good news is that most antique furniture can be reupholstered. New upholstery on your sofa gives it an instant update, and it’s a chance to play with the color, pattern, and texture. Take a look at the results of this loveseat. The original upholstery was stained and looked dull, but we reupholstered it in a fresh shade of blue.
