It takes a watchful eye to forecast the latest design and decorating trends. But it takes vision, creativity and hard work to pinpoint the exact mix of trends that set extraordinary homes apart from the ordinary. For past decade and a half, Philadelphia magazine has been a steward of this visionary process, bringing together the best architects, builders, designers, and manufacturers to create yearly Design Homes. Each home has been a unique and stunning showcase of the year’s most timely trends and timeless designs.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Philadelphia magazine’s Design Home, and the second year in a row we’ve joined the fun as a furniture sponsor. Builder Mark K. Weiss, McIntyre Capron Architects and designers Polly Carlton of Winslow Interiors and Kathy Moore of KAM Interiors created a beautiful home in Wynnewood, PA that blended English Norman architecture with the newest trends in finishes and a spacious floor plan.
Studio 882 furnished and decorated 4 rooms: the dining room, the piano room, the boys bedroom and the guest bedroom. Each were vastly different rooms, requiring vastly different styles and decor approaches. This is where Studio 882 excels – in finding unique design solutions for unique spaces. Below, enjoy the before and after photos of our 2017 Design Home Rooms, highlighting just how important the right furniture is.
