Small House, Stunning Impact

“It is my responsibility to consider how pieces will grow with my clients and have staying power through the inevitable changes that life can bring.”

Todd redesigned the interior character of this small 1950s house from a dignified bachelor pad to a stylish home for a young family. Always thinking about how life changes and how his clients’ needs may shift, Todd makes beautiful, responsible choices intended for lasting impact. 

For this home he keeps it simple with slight modifications to the floor plan to meet contemporary living. Although there are moments of deep color — in the glossy navy of the sitting room and in the artwork — the overall feeling is fresh and light. Wainscotting and the textured Phillip Jeffries sisal wallcovering create an enticing hall that glows with gold-leaf and a sculptural, oversized light fixture. The baby’s room features a de Gournay “Plum Blossom” mural, a backdrop that a child can grow up with. Likewise, the small dressers can later serve as bedside tables for a bed once the baby is out of her crib. Throughout the home, a deft mix of modern furniture with antique pieces reinforce a striking outlook.
