In Alabama attending football games is a tradition. This Chicago-based family purchased a game day home within walking distance to campus and asked us to help them with the Auburn Alabama Interior Design. They wanted a home that was perfect for gathering on game days and an inviting home for their future retirement.
Updating A Greek Revival Home
The 1940s Greek Revival and sits on a beautiful lot above Auburn University plains. The home was in much need of repair and required a significant remodel. The renovation included adding a large great room, master bath, and carriage house making the home the perfect entertaining venue.
To accentuate the existing home and unite it in perfect harmony with the new additions, we worked with the owners creating warm and thoughtful architectural details throughout the existing home and addition. The goal was to create a home that the family would enjoy for years to come and one that was true to its original design.
Creating Custom Furniture
With the additions that we helped the family plan, they needed custom furniture pieces to create a more usable space. One such piece was a custom banquette in the dining area. This banquette not only added additional seating that was otherwise missing but with pops of the team colors your eye is drawn to the area creating a beautiful focal point.
Choosing The Perfect Colors
When designing a game day home, the use of color is important. The family wanted the home to reflect their allegiance to Auburn University but in an understated and elegant way. This Auburn Alabama Interior Design required the use of neutrals throughout the home accented with blue and orange accents. With this design, we were able to achieve their vision. In addition, using a variety of shades of the accent colors gave the design depth and a feeling of warmth.
