We’re excited to feature and introduce Jennifer Agus of Agus Interiors. Jennifer aspires to capture the individual style and aesthetics of her clients, while ensuring it fits their space and lifestyle. Today Jennifer shares a project with us where she worked for a family of three generations who recently purchased their first home and needed help sprucing up their Center Hall Colonial.
Feature project: Revive an existing Buffet left from the prior owner. The mid-century modern walnut buffet has for doors and great lines. It was brought to an auto body shop to have it sprayed and changed the hardware and voila. Now this buffet has a sleek modern color palette.
Auto Body Shop: $600.00
Hardware (4 new ring pulls) $26.00
With a limited budget, Agus incorporated the following interior design methods to awaken the space:
- Refinished floors
- Carpet installation
- Wainscoting and wallpaper to the dining room
- Lighting replacement
- Upgraded powder room
Agus furnished the living room, dining room, den and nursery (baby #2 was on the way). To commit to their strict budget, Agus added the final finishing touches:
- Incorporate conversation pieces such as the vintage tub chairs recovered in Nancy Corzine velvet and the Schumacher benches
- Ample seating area near the window features a Kravet herringbone chenille for an inviting and cozy atmosphere
- New millwork flanking the fireplace provides endless storage and the ability to display treasured family heirlooms
- Damask wallpaper on the ceiling makes the room feel taller and brighter
- Cowhide bench used as a coffee table works really well in the long narrow space
- Decorative pillows and valance fabrics give the space a young vibe
