Design Love: We Need Your Vote!

We had previously worked with this client on home staging for the sale of her condo.  When she came to us for help with her new penthouse in the sky, we were thrilled to take on the project with her.   

The brief was to create a mature, yet cozy space that would be great for the couple to lounge in. They like raw materials and selected barn board flooring as a developer upgrade.  Too much wood can be, well, woody, so we opted for natural materials and shapes to add texture and interest.  

We showed our client the boards last night and she loved them all.  Help her make the right choice: submit your vote in the comments below or tweet to @modernstagingca
