Modern Family’s Luxury Philadelphia Home

Fairmount, Philadelphia

The Henck Design (HD) team overhauled this new construction transitional style property in Philadelphia’s Fairmount neighborhood. The plan for the home design was to take a blank canvas with white walls and outfit it with transitional furniture while keeping a light, neutral color palette. Large-scale light fixtures, custom sofa, and herringbone floors are a few stand-out features of the distinguished property.

The client, a well-known CEO at University City Science Center, recently relocated from Atlanta to Philadelphia and needed the best interior design services around. To set this exceptional modern woman and family up for success, Henck Design needed to make the spaces very comfortable with functional design in mind. By carefully incorporating material selections like marble, hardwood floors and wood accents, the rooms were elevated to have high-end appeal.

Given the open-concept layout of the first floor, it was essential to divide the individual seating areas with custom rugs and compartmentalize the home’s open floor plan into distinct zones.

Remaining true to HD’s Classic Modern style, large-scale mirrors line the living room walls, and applied moldings create a custom effect. These touches add character to the otherwise empty and expansive main wall to unify the living room, the casual dining space, and the white kitchen.

The custom curved sofa under the front window has a velvety finish boasting a truly transitional aesthetic for the living room’s design. The kitchen has a double waterfall island with Carrera marble that’s stunning and over the island, hang two gold pendants that match the adjacent counter stools, island faucet, and nearby furnishings.
Moving to the primary bedroom, a large modern canopy bed fills the space with textured wallpaper lining each wall leading into the expansive primary closet and then the bathroom.

Custom draperies create a soft backdrop to the bedroom interior design and a natural white grass rug spans almost wall-to-wall over the herringbone-style hardwood floors. Large floating shelves were incorporated to highlight some home accessories as well as modern nightstands to hold bedroom essentials for this happy client.
