If there is a tool that every designer dreams of working with, it would be color. LaMar Lisman and Kristina Weaver found endless opportunities to use it in this delightful renovation of a traditional home located high on the east bench of Eaglewood, Utah. The original home had been tastefully appointed with traditional Cherrywood cabinetry and natural maple wood floors. The residence had a decidedly masculine feel; handsome, tailored but predictable. It had served a busy active family well for many years. But now finding themselves empty nesters, the clients felt it was time for an update, including the reconfiguring rooms to accommodate a stunning new Master Bedroom suite, complete with a refined and functional Master Bath. A knockout custom kitchen, revamped formal dining, a welcoming entryway and comfortable family room were all part of this extensive project. With their magnificent art collection and a love for all things French, the clients sent Kristina and her team to work incorporating their requests, ideas and vision. Kristina expanded upon that with great finesse. Working with color is a dream, but too much color, and too vibrant, can end up cartoonish. The Lisman Studio team pulled it off perfectly, even with some fairly full intensity of color, the artwork and interiors sing in harmony and every room brings a smile. Plain ceilings are now trimmed in refined beams and millwork. Ordinary walls are now graced with beautiful moldings and trim details. A custom iron staircase design showcases the talent of true craftsmen. At every turn, this home inspires, uplifts and speaks of quality, beauty and even some whimsy. The project is a testimony to being bold, taking risks, having fun and watching it all come together. After all, it wouldn’t be French if it wasn’t dashingly bold!
