Meet Our Client
The Murphy Family is an adorable family of 4 residing in the River Park neighborhood of Sacramento. They had been living in another home, close-by but were in search of something larger to fit their growing family. They found a house that was in the middle of being flipped and were fortunate enough to buy it before it hit the market. So not only were they able to stay in their ideal neighborhood but they were also able to give input on the design of the home.
After they moved in, it was time for someone to come in and help with furnishing the space. Enter, Design Shop Interiors!
The Murphy family loves to entertain and they wanted to be sure their home was both kid-friendly and functional, while still feeling stylish and collected.
The Design Process
Lead Designer: Ashlee
Our design process is very collaborative with clients. There is often a back and forth for several months until the design is nailed down and the client is happy.
Keeping in mind that the Murphys wanted a kid-friendly home while maintaining a stylish design, Ashlee incorporated the following:
- A large, family-friendly sectional in the living room where she knew the family would be spending a lot of time
- Leather chairs which are great for both kids and animals because they wipe clean
- A lot of hidden storage in the form of a credenza and baskets
- Art from the family’s many years of traveling
- Collected flare with a moroccan inspired coffee table and worldly textiles
Overall, we are confident this home is a great representation of how the Murphy family lives and functions from day to day!
Ashlee’s favorite element in the home: “I love the contrast in the dining room chairs and table. Round dining tables are a major favorite of mine right now, and it was the perfect fit for the Murphy’s entertaining lifestyle.”
