My Design approach for this family home in Brielle was putting FG Design Solutions four Rs to use; Repurpose, Restore, Reduce and Recycle. While paring down, room by room, I was able to create a laid back living environment, that is simple, and family friendly. My overall design challenge, was to use sustainable materials and repurposing existing items throughout the house. Above: In the dining room I was guided by my favorite saying of Richard Boch, “The simplest things are most often the truest”. A jolt of hydrangea blue brightens the walls. White woodwork, sustainable blinds and a casual table and chairs keep the dining room from feeling too formal.
