“As is true with any project, the design was informed by the space itself and the client’s vision and goals for it. Neil’s desire for a thoughtful, eclectic space that reflected Brian’s personality and lifestyle was one key, and the other was the natural light play created by the den’s orientation. Color was a great starting point for the selection of furnishings and art. We layered in texture with finishes such as the recycled glass tile from Spain and the mud-cloth pillows.” — Lisa Samuel

“The intention of the design was to transform Brian’s backyard into a comfortable gathering destination and a fun pollinator oasis, and to encourage connecting with nature. We created unique spaces outside with a fully equipped outdoor cooking area, outdoor seating for dining alfresco and lounging, a wide projector screen, and pots for vegetables and herbs that add color and beauty. We also integrated storage in the design that will help seasonal transitions instead of needing to bring everything inside!” — Solange Serquis
