When designer Elish Phares Moon fist met with new client Dot, who she refers to as one of her sweetest clients, their personalities automatically clicked! As Elish began to talk through designing Dot’s new town home, which was a downsize from where she previously lived, Elish found that the most important thing to Dot was keeping a feeling of spaciousness despite the decreased square footage.
Of designing the space, Elish says, “the biggest challenge in this space was creating adequate seating and keeping symmetry without sacrificing an open floor plan.”
Dot was very open to Elish’s design direction but wanted to still be able to showcase her own personality, which Elish was completely open to! Dot’s living area turned out to be a perfect reflection of her: timeless with a bit of spunk!
Elish’s favorite aspect of the space was the beautiful skirted sofa and leather ottoman. “It feels like a space that could have passed for a traditional sitting room yet is still cozy and inviting. Plus Dot is the consummate hostess and always keeps fresh flowers in a little vase on the ottoman that doubles as her coffee table.”
This design is truly a wonderful example of a designer/client working relationship.
“Dot was very trusting of my expertise but made sure that we had specific places where her personality showed through. She hand selected the accent pillows on the sofa from a trip to Philadelphia; They marry perfectly with the subtle hues I already selected for the living area,” says Elish!
We love how it all turned out! Thank you, Elish and Dot, for contributing! 🙂
