Owned by an Artist and his family, The Inn at Charlotte was their first experience with a “bed and breakfast.” They found the many rooms and spaces needing updating and decorating to be an overwhelming task. In an effort to do the decorating themselves, the owners painted one of the guest rooms a very bright yellow. Part of what we do at KGD is offer our clients objective input and guidance so they end up with a space that meets their objectives. Since bright yellow would be a little intense for most guests at a bed and breakfast, we took this opportunity to guide the owners to more subtle tones in the other spaces, which made for a more inviting and restful atmosphere. Because the budget on this project was limited, we had to be very resourceful to accomplish everything the client wanted. These photos show how adding a few elements of color and texture brought life and warmth to the common area of The Inn at Charlotte where guests gather for meals and conversation.
