“ I had a rug made overseas faster than I could have a sofa made in North Carolina ,” he says . “ The combination of the high demand for home products and COVID caused major delays from furnishings and decor companies . They ’ re working as hard as they can . Thankfully , the clients were so patient .”
Certainly the relaxed vibe of the primary bedroom helped the homeowners maintain their patience . The calming , neutral palette from the other rooms carries into the bedroom , setting the scene for relaxation .
“ The whole look of the primary bedroom is plush and tranquil and somewhat reminiscent of a spa ,” Greg explains .
A French carved bed from Guy Chaddock dominates the room , topped with Lee Jofa Chinese Lantern bedding , a subtle floral print that adds a touch of romance to the room . Large bedside tables from Hickory Chair complete the look and offer easily accessible storage via two drawers and an open compartment design that does double duty .
“ Because of the scale and size , we wanted them to have an open feeling ,” Greg says . “ With the open design , they don ’ t have that weight , and they give a storage option .”
Greg and his team outfitted the en suite bathroom in carrara marble — including heated tile floors — with European-style fixtures . That Euro style carries through the home in the door hardware , with smaller scale lifetime brass knobs throughout .
“ We wanted it to age and have the patina instead of the heavily lacquered , shiny brass , and the smaller scale , which is a lot more European style ,” Greg says .
Though redesigning and making major renovations on a home in the midst of a pandemic proved challenging , Greg credits his team and everyone they worked with for making the project a smooth , enjoyable process .
“ When you have an incredible builder like Buck Nichols and his team , everything was a breeze , and everything just came together ,” Greg says . “ And all of that happening during a pandemic — it was just a dream job working with such talented people .”
Greg notes the kinship he found with the homeowners made this project feel more like a fun , collaborative effort than a typical home redesign .
“ I loved their respect for nice antiques and beautiful fabrics , and they were always so excited about the whole look coming together ,” he says .
