You might remember the teaser we shared last week about the home that hosted the photo shoot for the Mistletoe Marketplace steering committee! Well, we’re here to deliver on our promise of more photos from this stunning residence designed by our very own Lisa Palmer… Are you ready?!
Ladies and gentlemen… Feast your eyes!
When Lisa first started on this project, the house had not been updated in about 20 years. It was beautifully done, but it was a lot of bright color and pattern, and the client wanted something lighter and softer.
“We started with rugs from NOLA Rugs in New Orleans and went from there.” says Lisa. “We worked with some of her antique pieces and added new pieces that will be future antiques for her.”
The painting in the dining room was a commission of the client’s cousin Martha Rea Baker from Santa Fe. Lisa worked closely with Baker on this piece, which turned out beautifully.
Working in the sun room was a bit of a challenge, but Lisa was able to overcome all obstacles and make this room absolutely fabulous! “It was important to the client that they had an unincumbered view of the lake. It was a challenge because there was a television and not much wall,” says Lisa.
Lisa says, “The only thing we worked with in the bedroom was the rug. Then we found that beautiful B Viz pillow! She really wanted that room to be a respite where she could really relax.”
Overall, Lisa says she loves working with homes that have a lot of history and personality. “And not only did this home have history and personality, but my client has a long history in the community and LOTS of personality! I love working with her,” Lisa says.
We say, job well done!!
