Decorating for a New England Patriot, Foxboro,Ma
Interiors by Marianne Cherico had the distinct pleasure of decorating the entire townhouse for one of our own NE Patriots. Or at least he used to be ,but we will get to that later :)
When this wide receiver's agent was scouting out Interior Designers in the Foxboro area, he chose
Interiors by Marianne Cherico because my design aesthetic is, as he put it "hip and youthful" and not "fuddy duddy".
I had worked on another wide receiver's condo (ironically he was the same #) so this was the second time working with one of these young men.
Working with a professional athlete is both rewarding and challenging. For instance, it is sometimes interesting to understand what they envision.
So for this particular athlete I met him at his apartment to see what he seemed to like. I was impressed with his style-artistic,funky and modern. So I thought that we could bring some of his furniture and soft furnishings into his new place.
And of course we had to make sure that his photos and framed shirts were included.
So in his new place, I chose to paint the top half of the game room navy blue. This would highlight his pictures and provide a great contrast to the white bead board.
Decorating for a New England Patriot, Foxboro ,Ma. provided other unique challenges.
Just when I thought that I had his design style figured out, he threw me a curve ball. He texted "I love Pottery Barn".
So I had to find a way to add Pottery Barn style to "hip,young,modern and funky"!
Here is what we decided on for a kitchen/dining table. This was purchased from the Design Center in RI.
We decided on 4 slipcovered chairs and 2 wooden chairs on the end.
Decorating for a New England Patriot,Foxboro, Ma. meant making sure that there was enough seating for entertaining and that the chairs were sturdy enough for big athletes.
This table expanded so that he could fit lots of friends over!
He also wanted shag carpet so we chose an off white shag to go under the table.
The custom window treatments in the kitchen/dining area had a washed out Pottery Barn feeling with a modern twist. The zig zag feeling of the leaf pattern echoed the chevron rug that I planned on purchasing for the living area which was open to the kitchen/dining area. I worked with a local window treatment designer for all the custom treatments.
Decorating for a New England Patriot, Foxboro,Ma meant creating guest rooms for visiting family. We thought that it would be really nice to decorate a room for his Mother when she came to visit.
My goal was to make sure that this room was relaxing and spa like and would be a retreat for this single working Mom. One that she certainly deserved!
I chose Sherwin Williams "Silver Mist" for the walls and bought hotel bedding that I embellished with store bought and custom pillows.
Since he loves the autumn I made sure that the pictures reflected that.
This bedroom was a great get away for his Mom!
When I saw this fur ottoman in the store I knew that we had to find someplace to put it.
So now here is the SAD part of decorating for a New England Patriot, Foxboro,Ma............Just when we were seventy five percent finished-HE WAS TRADED TO THE Jacksonville JAGUARS!!!!!!!!!!!
So here is as far as we got decorating the Master Bedroom. The faux alligator bed was really awesome!
This is the fabric that we chose for the window treatment and large bolster pillows....they were going to be gorgeous!
Decorating for a New England Patriot, Foxboro,Ma was truly a pleasure. This young man was great to work with and open to my suggestions.
I guess that I will say that it was fun "Quarterbacking" this design process. Move over Tom Brady!
