Pulp in Progress: A Hip Family Home with a Flair
As part of our Three-Step Design Process, we are taking you on a tour through projects that are currently in progress. It will be a fun look into who we’re working with, what made them want to hire a designer and how we are working with our clients to help solve some key design challenges that will improve their daily experience. Plus, you’ll get a glimpse at some of our designs before they’re completed!
Step One: Consultation + Intake
Q: WHO IS THE CLIENT AND WHAT IS THEIR SCOPE OF WORK?
After purchasing their soon-to-be dream home, a creative and well-traveled family of four came to Pulp to take a blank canvas and fill it with flair. Our clients are busy-professionals with two young children who love imaginative play and family time. This whole-home project came to us as a completely clear and unfinished space ready to be elevated and transformed with a Pulp twist.
Q: WHY DID THE CLIENT DECIDE TO HIRE AN INTERIOR DESIGNER RATHER THAN TAKING THE PROJECT ON THEMSELVES?
This modern house is the first home our clients have owned and they wanted to be proud of every space everyday. Looking to create a space that would function in the everyday, withstand a busy family with young kids and a dog and be just as unique as it is refined and sophisticated, our clients came to us to take their dreams and turn them into reality. They knew they needed professionals who designed with an edge to turn their new space into a lasting family retreat.
Step Two: The Design Phase
Here’s where we took everything we learned from our client at our consultation and intake process and put all that information and our creativity to work for our clients. We started really getting to know our client and their kids, their vision of their home and how they tend to “do life” in each room. Then we started by gathering inspiration from our client in the form of a Pinterest board and began to collaborate on the design between our offices.
Q: WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE NEW DESIGN?
Through our Splendid Living approach, we learned that our clients are drawn to clean and modern design, but also love comfortable and vintage elements. In addition to wanting kid-friendly spaces that would inspire creative play and free imagination, our clients wanted a fresh space infused with unique and interesting furnishings and a stunning master retreat. Traditional was a word we ruled out day one as we approached the design inspired by our clients’ dynamic personalities and styles.
Q: WHAT WAS A UNIQUE DESIGN CHALLENGE AND HOW IS PULP SOLVING THE PROBLEM?
One of our clients’ must-haves was a guest room that doubled as a playroom and family space. Facing spacial constraints and a big dream, we had to imagine a way to make the room playful but sophisticated. Creating a dual-function room with size limitations can be challenging, but we employed our own imaginations to select truly unique furnishings appropriate for kid time and guests.
Step Three: Installation + Execution
This stunning home has been coming along beautifully. Each installation leaves us that much more excited to show off the completed home. Check out our Instagram for more photos and details on this installation.
