23 Feb “For Life”
Empty nester Laura was ready for a change. Her children were grown and she wanted a design for her home that was more transitional and warm – something she would keep and enjoy for as long as they lived in the house or as she told me “for life.”
We softened the look of her home by removing the outdated mirror lining the walls of her dining room and updating the recessed lighting. Crown molding and wainscot were added, and we refinished the floors and purchased more traditional furnishings. By using different patterns and textures, we created visual interest and warmth. Her existing lucite cocktail table, although more on the modern side, added an interesting twist and the antique nesting tables had sentimental value and look lovely in the new setting. The overall look is softer and more inviting.
“After retiring, I knew that I wanted to renovate my house and change it completely, from a modern look to more transitional. Other than that I had no idea what to do or where to begin. I also knew that my husband was not going to be very helpful. After seeing my son and daughter-in-law’s house I knew I had to call in Rose Ott. I didn’t want to make any mistakes and I let Rose know that I wanted to love everything “for life.” She was able to envision the whole picture where I couldn’t. Rose really listened to what I said and added her decorator touch. She gave me lots of choices and helped me narrow down what I really wanted. Her design ideas included color, furniture layouts, lighting, fabric and so much more. Rose Ott was professional and dependable throughout our project, which covered living room, dining room, and den. My husband and I are thrilled with our new home and we owe it all to Rose Ott. We will love it “for life.”
