“ We chose the lucite table because it ’ s clear and light-looking , and the space would not be consumed by something heavy ,” she says . “ And then we added armless seating , again , to make it less weighty in there .”
Linda custom-made the sofa and matching chair with an armless design to maintain that open feel . The dining chairs around the lucite table came from Hickory Chair and were upholstered in aqua and blue floral fabric to coordinate with the living room palette .
“ She didn ’ t have a sunroom previously ,” Linda says . “ It gave an opportunity to add a new color into the previous color scheme , which was the yellows and the grays . We were able to pull in this aqua tone . And it all looks really fresh and new .”
The theme of repurposing and refreshing carried into the back entryway , a diminutive space that packs a high-style punch . The homeowner had a black lacquered chest , a black-and-white animal print indoor-outdoor rug and a white garden stool . Linda brought them all together , adding custom-designed draperies with a black-and-white large-scale floral print to finish the look .
“ Here we went with something slightly bold because it ’ s at the back door ,” Linda says . “ There ’ s a playful mirror to address you when entering or a final ‘ check ’ before departing , and there ’ s a drawer to put things in . It ’ s just a great little mud room back entryway .”
While a project that reuses pieces from a prior home could easily turn into a duplicate of the last house , Linda says she and her team took special care to make this home different .
“ The first thing is to establish the bones of a room , how the layout needs to work in order for the room to function properly for comfort and use , and the appropriate amount of seating ,” she says . “ And with this in mind , how can we bring it to life in this new environment ? Once that ’ s done , you start looking for elements that breathe new life into the new home . Everything must be fresh .”
For the homeowner , both the process and finished result stood as a testament to the strength of the relationship between designer and client .
“ I would never have considered buying a house without Linda ’ s blessing — that ’ s how much I trust her ,” she says . “ She knows what will be transferable from your previous home and where the holes will be . Her genius with color , dimension and lifestyle considerations are evident in every project . Linda has been my go-to design advisor for 35 years — projects were small when we were younger , and this is certainly our biggest and most fun .”
