A Behind-the-Scenes at the ATG Seattle Showhouse
We recently completed a room in a super cool show house concept, hosted by ATG Stores, where Decorist partnered with designers to virtually design spaces in an amazing Seattle show house! We designed a space alongside other talented designers, Alexa Hampton, Brian Paquette, and Massucco Warner Miller.
Pulp was asked to design the Home Office, which is actually a large open vestibule. We received photos, measurements, and had to source everything soley from ATG Stores website. It was a bit of a challenge to turn an open space, without four walls, into what felt like more of a room with an ambiance and an environment, but our team did an amazing job. Take a look at the whole process…
The Design Concept
We got right into design and created a neutral space with lots of texture and layers. We wanted to maximize on the gorgeous downtown Seattle views and make the home office feel like it’s a place that you could sit and enjoy. We wanted it to be the exact opposite of a utilitarian space and wanted it to feel warm, inviting, and full of personality
The Installation Process
Once we designed the space we were completely hands off! We got to watch them implement our designs… Naturally, it wasn’t everything we planned for. Lighting was missing and fixtures were in different locations than originally intended. But, overall the results came together beautifully!
We were able to commission an art piece from a local Seattle artist, Kelly Johnston, to elevate the look. And, we had to put our own twist on the portrait art for added personalization.
The Completed Space
Once everything was all set, stylist (and friend) Cassandra LaValle of the Coco + Kelley blog put in some finishing touches. Since we selected everything from ATG Stores, we asked Cassandra for oddities, vintage accessories, books and live plants. The wallcovering we selected by Paloma Contreras for Guildery really gave our space an edge and created a true environment.
The VIP Event
Almost our entire Pulp Design Studios design team was able to attend the event- we were just missing a couple of designers from our Dallas office (we missed you, Tara!). But, it was an amazing turnout with lots of great response… Perhaps the greatest feedback we received was from the call we received from the homeowner. More to come on that front!
Congrats to all the designers who designed beautiful spaces! We’ll share more as photos and videos become available… Here’s a quick little video teaser to hold you over.
