My company Pure Coalesce was recently commissioned to carry out yet another transformation this one with a swanky edge. A beautiful two-bedroom apartment with views of the ocean was in need for a touch of glamour. Meeting a new client and taking on the mammoth task of transforming his vision to reality is a constant challenge as a designer. During my early years as a designer, the rhetorical question remained “What is your style as a designer?” and I was always stumped for an answer. I thought at the time I need to discover myself more and maybe the answer will come to me over the years. But it never did, I realized that I accepted and appreciated all kinds of styles be it classical or contemporary. There is uniqueness in everything and everybody in this world and that is how I treat my clients and my projects. So not having myself gravitate to one particular style has helped me maintain my equilibrium. I love to be challenged and I see each project as a new mould to fit into but as I mould myself I also learn to carve my own niche into each project.
The challenge in this particular project was a two-week deadline, which we met!!! And to create a clear distinction between the formal living room and informal lounge, that was only partially partitioned. We did that by way of color and use of furniture styles and accessories and yet tied both together by using a common patterned wallpaper. I hope you enjoy viewing the transformation and the choice of furniture which I particularly enjoyed picking.
My greatest joy is when I have happy clients at the end of the project who has entrusted me with churning their dream into their reality….. until next time… “Stay true….Stay Funky”
