Contemporary Hoboken Living Room

What were the main items on the owner’s wish list for this space?
The homeowner was looking for a modern, rustic feel. He wanted the space to be warm, inviting and clean for great entertaining.
What was your biggest obstacle in this space?
The only challenge had to be creating an equal balance between rustic and modern.
How does the end result match up with your original vision for the space?
Normally when we start a project for a client, we provide renderings that show exactly what the space will look like down to the pillows on the sofa. Doing this leaves no room for error and the client gets exactly what they wanted. At the end of the day everyone is happy.
What are the hidden gems in your plan?
The porcelain we used on the wall was a great feature. We also found great vintage artwork pieces such as the clock and artwork on the dining area wall.
