Interior designers, much like fine artists, can come to be defined by a singular sense of style. People will turn to a designer to recreate the spaces he or she is most famous for and in that way things will snowball until so much of that designer’s work looks as if it could have come from the same house. In this post we are showcasing four different homes from the same designer, Nelly Prodan. And while there are certainly similarities between each of these spaces, the reality is that they are quite different, in terms of color palette, furnishings, and overall feel. Take a look at just how broad a designer’s tastes and expertise can be.
The first space was designed for a young man who loves to travel. This cosmopolitan lifestyle is reflected throughout the home, beginning in the living room where an eclectic gallery wall immediately draws attention. In fact, eclectic design carries throughout from mismatched throw pillows to creatively geometric end tables. And of course, no traveler’s home could be complete with plenty of bookshelves for all those travel guides.
The next home is a house designed for a young family. The feel of this home is a bit lighter and more elegant than the first, but still maintains that playfulness that is so compelling. The living room provides plenty of cozy and pretty seating in light pastel blue and neutral grays. Even lighter is the kitchen design, which includes sparkling white cabinetry and butcher block countertops, perfect for an easy home cooked meal.
The third space is nearly unrecognizable as being from the same designer. In contrast to the previous two homes, this space is sleekly modern. Still, you can see a bit of whimsy poking through, like in the bright orange fire feature and creative wall art. Otherwise, this space is plainer, with lots of clean, simple lines in the kitchen as well as the bedroom and lacks those same pops of color and light.
The final home is in the same modern vein. Though the space is bigger, featuring a two story living room and modern fireplace, long lines make it seem bigger still. The only hint of that winking whimsy is in the almost floral light fixtures that hang from the vaulted ceilings.
