What I’m Working On: The O’Country Club

Remember my post about The O’Country Club? Well, here it is in real life. It’s not longer just a concept. Carpeting is on order and the custom cherry wall paneling is in the works. It’s all happening. Here’s the rundown: This is our inspiration fabric. Oh that Ralph. He knows what he’s doing. This fabric was supposed to be used entirely on two little tufted English chairs but due to the hefty price tag, we had to make some changes. Now, it is going to be used on just the seat cushions with a solid upholstery fabric for the body of the chair, either blue or camel (shown below).

The chairs (which will look like this) will most likely be the blue option, and the sofa will be the camel. If not, the chair will be camel (with the plaid seat) and the sofa will be blue. You get it. Here is the sofa:

Two new barstools in this Ralph Lauren fabric will be incorporated with 4 barstools my clients currently own. The existing barstools are chocolate leather and look like this.

Tight, pleated Roman shades in this Ralph Lauren corduroy will be used to cover the back French doors. This fabric will also be used for pillows, along with the main plaid (shown at the very beginning of this post).

Long stationary window treatment panels will be made from this Clarke & Clarke wool fabric, using the client’s existing window treatment hardware.

Because of the scale of the room, we are using over-sized pieces for the end tables. Something a little unconventional. These are ammunition chests (can’t get more masculine than that!) from GLP Designs, Inc. and will be stained in a darker wood finish.

Benjamin Moore paint colors: Capilano Bridge for the main living areas and Lafayette Green for the bathroom. We plan to use Fairway Oaks for the guest bedroom.

Ralph Lauren wallpaper for the area above the custom wood paneling. I cannot wait to see this installed. Cannot wait.

Additional lighting fixtures will be used to complement the client’s existing Misson style pool table light. This one is for the bar and a smaller version will be used for the bottom of the stairs as you enter the basement.

Carpeting for the main living area of the basement supplied by ProSource. We used this carpeting upstairs in the Family Room so this was a no brainer.

Slate tile from Mosaic Tile for the bar and for the area in front of the back door.  I don’t plan on using the small accent tile, just the large 12″x12″ pieces in a running bond pattern (like bricks).

There is also going to be large, antique-ish, rectangular ottoman, upholstered in a Cognac leather, as the coffee table. It’s on casters so my clients can wheel it away quickly and painlessly when the Wii comes out.  We are also going to create a feature wall at the bottom of the stairs with Irish memorabilia and personal and travel based photos. So, now I am collecting random pieces to use for this photo/accent wall. I may even use an image or two from my own travels to Ireland. We’ll see!
