We sat down with our client, Omri, to chat about his new home, design taste, and what’s next for him.
When our client, Omri reached out to us, we were so excited to help him make his mainstay cabin feel like home. With unique features like exposed wooden beams and walls, epic windows, and prominent fireplace, we knew our Lux touches would make this space feel like home.
When did you know you needed to call on experts for help?
I bought this house in May 2017, and got to work with my general contractor West End Properties right away. As you might imagine, getting major things down like the structure, plumbing, electricity, and so on was my priority.
About 60 percent of the way through the project, I realized I should start thinking about working with a designer — so I could have help in selecting big things like kitchen cabinets, flooring, bathroom fixtures, and have help with the key details later on.
What was your favorite part of the process?
Lux Decor definitely guided me through the process, sharing their inspirations with me along the way. I felt pretty comfortable in their vision and we kept the lines of communication wide open as we made decisions together.
I truly love home decor but I just don’t have the eye for it. I was getting sick of the sleek, modern condo-style look that is so popular in the City today. I was able to communicate that with the team and was really happy with the result — a perfect marriage of unique, traditional, and contemporary.
As the space came together, I really felt like it was representative of my vision.
What is your favorite new piece in your home?
It’s so hard to pick! I love how the pieces complement the unique features of the home, like the wooden beams and walls. I’m a huge fan of how the wooden walls look with the buffets. I also really like the couches we went with, and how the light fixtures fill the space perfectly.
How does your new space make you feel?
It’s so nice and put together, it feels like I’m living in a hotel! I’ve only been living here for 3 days and I’m loving the luxurious vibe of the place.
Any final words?
I am so happy with the final result of my home — but there’s always something else to tackle! What really makes my home special is that it is surrounded by water. This summer, the outdoor spaces are going to be the hangout spot! I’m definitely going to need help taking the outside of my home to the next level
