Artful Design

Article Natalie Fieleke


Our clients possessed gallery-worthy modern artwork, but their newly-purchased contemporary home in Overland Park wasn’t perfect yet to showcase them. That’s when the couple came to Design Connection, Inc. to transform their new home into an art collector’s dream space. Arlene drew design inspiration from their collection and decided on a color palette composed of corals, oranges, and blues that would coordinate with and allow the art collection to be the focal point in each and every room.

Arlene carefully selected design elements that would work off the artwork to create a unique feeling in the home. An example is the dining room light fixture, furnishings, and an area rug that brings life to the three coordinating pieces of art.

Another noteworthy space is the living room, where Arlene refreshed and gave a new life to the existing round sectional with new back cushions and colorful pillows that draw the eye to the adjacent art and custom-built Courtesan oak floating cabinet.

Some areas, such as the master bathroom, were designed and developed as completely new spaces while other areas, like the kitchen, were freshened up with new cabinet faces, countertops, and backsplash.

Even though most of our Midwest clients don’t typically lean this modern in design, this home’s natural contemporary styling comes easily to Arlene through her sourcing connections and her love for contemporary design using natural elements in a variety of ways.
