Baron + Baron Design: Interiors.Staging.Construction
Our design team was enlisted to refresh and update a typical California ranch style home set on a large corner lot in a nice neighborhood in Sonoma, California. Our contractors, Baron Smith Design and Construction, collaborated on a full home update of baseboards, floors, mouldings, fireplaces in the living and family rooms and updates in the master bedroom suite. Our color specialist, Belinda Hallmark, created a serene and light color palette to showcase our clients spectacular collection of rare batik fabrics, Asian and African textiles and rare Persian, Pakistani, Turkish and Indian rugs. To showcase his collection of fabrics, rugs and reference books, we converted the dining room to a textile library where special, museum quality, hanging systems were installed to showcase a rotating rug and fabric exhibition from the dozens of specimens our client has collected over the years. Our architectural designer, Mary Baron Smith, designed the beautiful custom cabinetry and bookcases. Our furniture design focused on showcasing the lovely asian ceramics, statuary, paintings and textiles. Each room showcased a custom loomed rug and the upholstery and window fabrics were chosen to add texture and sophistication to each space. Our client is living his dream in a home he helped to create with his fabulous and rare collections.
