This Minneapolis family with four young boys wanted to remodel their 1970s home while keeping the spirit of the era.
Develop a contemporary retro theme that complemented the space while also enhancing its livability.
|A beautiful but practical plan was called for, as this bustling Minneapolis family wanted hip and family friendly along with practical and durable.|
After getting on the same page with what a 1970s spirit meant to this family, the task of choosing styling finishes, fabrics and furniture was very simple. Natural materials such as a red birch wall and stacked slate fireplace gave Brandi anchors to work with and contrast against. They also added warmth to a space that could have been overly dominated by high, vaulted ceilings.
|Brandi retained neutral tones in the home's fixtures, with gray walls, warm woods and mellow upholsteries. Rugs, artwork and pillows provide colorful accents for extra jazz.|
In keeping with the funky style the client was looking for, artwork and cushions added pops of brightness. Groovy accents such as a starburst mirror and narrow walnut table matched the fun spirit of the family and their newly redesigned 1970s home.
|This party-sized table created from a single slice of a walnut tree has a "living edge" that retains the tree's original shape.|
