The Country Project Interior Design in Geauga, OH

One of the very first questions I hear from my interior design clients is: How do I get started? Or Where do I start? When it came time to update my own Geauga County home, I knew that I’d use art as an inspiration for the overall design. So I worked with an artist to incorporate colors we love as a family on a gallery wall to display in the family room of our home. 

Being the place where we gather to spend time together, and having a large family, means there was a need for a lot of seating and a big TV. And this spacious seating area is helpful when family joins us for fun or for holiday celebrations.

The artist wasn’t the only craftsman I worked with to create custom pieces for our home. For the bar area, I drove out to Amish country and hand-selected the bar top. A cabinet maker helped create the live edge slab of maple wood that would match the custom color on the mantel.

If you’re working on a redesign, think about how a few custom items, like my artwork and bar table, can be an inspiration for your entire space.
