What look were you going for when brainstorming your new home?

We wanted a space that combined a mix of both of our styles. Combing masculine and feminine with a little Scandinavian influence. I’m quite monochromatic when it comes to design but I didn’t want the entire space to be black and white, so to balance it out we chose a deep blue color as our accent.

What is your favorite piece of furniture in your space?

My favorite piece is our Marble Coffee Table. It’s clean, simple, and it was the first piece we picked.

What challenges did you face, if any, when designing the space?

Making sure we could fit it all in without feeling too cluttered. We only saw the space once before we moved in so it was a bit of a guessing game. I think we managed to make it all work!

How do you feel about the outcome?

We couldn’t be happier about it! It’s exactly where we want to unwind at the end of the day.

Their condo is what modern decor dreams are made of! Everything they chose fit the space perfectly, and I’m DYING over all of the marble topped tables + the couch. Love!
