September 2012
Welcome to Metropolitan Interiors




As summer comes to a close and we get back into the fall swing of things, this newsletter is bursting with information for you...


First off, we're proud to share photos and features of a home office - formerly used for storage - turned Wonderland retreat. We created it to be both functional, for office activities, and also enjoyable for the homeowner; a place of beauty and whimsy she'll enjoy spending time in.


Also, if you haven't already had a chance to read it, please check out my article "The Life-Enriching Love of Art", which was published in TOSCA magazine. In it I share some fascinating details about Gary Fink, who I was lucky to interview. If you're an art lover, this is a don't miss peek at his personal collection and insider views on art.


Lastly, our Designer Margie Kampf has a very special offer - be sure to see details below if there are any design changes you're considering for your home. The price has been reduced and NOW's the time to act - it won't last long!

Wonderland Home Office Makeover 

Home Office Makeover   

Before redesign, this home office suffered from a lack of function and aesthetic appeal. Although it contained office furniture, it was mismatched and outdated. The room was also cluttered, so unfortunately it wasn't used for any purpose other than storage.


But, the homeowner (our client) had a vision. She wanted to have a place to conduct personal business, and also a place to read, sip a cup of tea or visit. Her style could be described as traditional, feminine and cozy with "Alice in Wonderland" inspired whimsy. The home office redesign created space for her enjoyment, in addition to serving a functional purpose.


Before the design could be implemented, though, the room needed to be de-cluttered. Finding homes for furniture, sorting and redistributing miscellaneous things proved a big challenge, but one we graciously overcame.


Once cleared out, design attention was placed on adding custom paint, furniture and window treatments, along with a rug, artwork and accessories. The specialty finishes we chose are in line with the homeowner's style, and have the same feel as our previous designs in the home, for cohesiveness...
