My, oh my have we been eagerly (and a little impatiently) waiting to release this project into the interior design airwaves. We love a project where we get to take two very different client styles and bring them together into one, cohesive and dynamic space filled with Pulp surprises of all kinds — we’re talking edgy meets traditional and maybe, just maybe, a playroom decked out with a climbing wall. Could it be true? All this in one, 1900’s era home? See it to believe it…

The Clients:
A family of four with an on-point sense of fashion

The Decision:
Our clients were in the midst of installing lighting they had selected from big-box retailers when they realized they just couldn’t make their home the reflection of their styles and personalities they wanted it to be. They brought Pulp on to perfect the lighting and after realizing the impact of our design approach, they decided to have us tackle the entire home.
The Home:
Full of character! Built in 1906 and originally owned by a shipyard manager

The Goal: 
A modern design that brought together our clients’ differing tastes with the Pulp flair, of course.

The Timeline:  
About 7 months — Rome wasn’t built in a day, people!


Queen Anne Family Home Before.001

“This house was built in the 1900s and the original owner is believed to have been a shipyard manager. We took the history of the house and played our design off a vision of a modern nautical theme. The house is really dynamic, but you’ll find little details throughout that pay tribute to the home’s history.” — Beth Dotolo

Queen Anne Family Home Before.003

“The living room is one of our favorite spaces in the house. The layout was interesting to work around, but in the end we created this moody, but modern space where our clients can spend time together and entertain. We wanted to leave them with something they would be excited to show off.” — Carolina Gentry

“Having a really pretty living room and a professionally designed space I think has changed the way we care for the space… I really enjoyed the process working with Pulp. We definitely get a lot of pleasure out of having a beautiful home.” — Rachel, Pulp Design Studios Client

“I thought Pulp did a really good job during their discovery process of understanding where we were both coming from aesthetically and then presenting some options that blended those two together.” — Mark, Pulp Design Studios Client
