Project 1:

This house was in preconstruction stage when Trente was engaged by the client. Her goal was to build a beautiful house but one that was functional and child friendly. She began with the floor plan, working on furniture placement to determine which existing pieces could be incorporated into the new house. She then assisted the client in the selection of flooring, cabinetry, tile, paint colors, fabrics, furniture, and finally, accessories.

This house continues to be an ongoing project while she completes the entire design plan.
 

 

 

Project 2:

Living Room

This aspiring authorís goal was to make her living room a daily retreat for her writing, as well as a beautiful space for entertaining. She wanted to work around the colors in her rug; therefore, Trente began with a warmer paint color and then selected fabrics and furnishings to complement the rug and bring the room together. Trente accompanied the client to several galleries until they found the art work for over the sofa, which not only creates the focal point for the room but inspires her writing.
Family Room

The family room is open to the clientís kitchen. She wanted an inviting space for children and adults. Once again, Trente pulled colors from the clientís existing rug. New furniture and window treatments give the room an-up-to date look, while providing an appealing and relaxing space for family and friends. The painting was purchased from a local artist and is a fabulous addition to the room.

Project 3:

Great Room and Breakfast Area

This client retained Trente shortly after moving into a newly constructed house. Her goal was to add color and warmth to the rooms and create harmony between the living and dining spaces. Trente began with a few of the clientís existing pieces of furniture. A color scheme using reds, oranges, and greens was chosen to provide warmth. New accessories in the great room include pillows, lamps, and pottery. A new area rug defines the conversation area. Finally, new curtains and newly upholstered breakfast room chairs creates a more intimate dining space.
 
Dining Room

Trente started with an empty room. Her client wanted eclectic furnishings and fabrics with dramatic color. The table and sideboard were selected first, along with the chairs, which were chosen for their comfort, as well as style. The wall color was taken from the curtain fabric, which with its slight sheen, lends a feeling of elegance. The painting, though still in need of a frame, pulls the roomís colors together perfectly. A project still in process, the dining room awaits an area rug and new chandelier.
