Better late than never! We’ve been so busy we haven’t had time to post last year’s condo projects that we designed for two sets of clients. The “crazy modern” condo on Santana Row was created for an edgy young couple who love design icon Philippe Starck. (Fun! You rarely hear, “GO FOR IT”! so loud and clear from a client. So we went!) We brought in their love of animal skins with a 10 foot x10 foot photographic print and abstracted, hand-stiched “zebra” pillows. Four black chandeliers make you feel like you are in a very strange (and chic!) dream.
The second, vastly different condo at the fabulous Axis Building was created for a successful woman who spent too much time in traffic commuting from her beautiful traditional home in Tracy to be a super-exec at her job in San Jose. She wanted something completely different for her “splurge” pied-a-terre in the modern high-rise. She has a “no-fuss” lifestyle, so the space reflects her desire for a simple, chic space that she can enjoy while away from her main home and family. (Not a surprise that her college-aged daughter uses it as a fun crash pad after concerts with her friends at HP Pavillion). Both projects were a fun and inspiring contrast to each other, and we absolutely loved working with both sets of clients!
