When textile-loving Stacy met furniture-making Tim Warlick it was a match made in the stars. Recently celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary, the couple blended their families and aesthetics into a renovated condo, resulting in a home that is as welcoming as it is colorful. “I enjoy mixing furniture styles and using fun modern fabrics on vintage pieces, while Tim is more focused on the object itself,” says Stacy.
Tim’s original handiwork includes the occasional table and a red X-form made for a client that he liked so much he made an extra for himself. Adding to the mix is a coveted mid-century modern George Nelson chair that was spotted in a pile of garbage in New York City. “You never know what you can find!” says Stacy, whose own imprint can be found via all of the fabrics.
Walls painted the same hue, limited window treatments, and leggy furniture create a spacious flow in the open layout typical of most multi-family East Side homes built in the 1920s. Neutral walls provide a nice backdrop for artwork, like the canvas painted by Tim, while warm wood tones link various elements. Jaunty fabrics in similar scales keep the blend of patterns cohesive.
Says Stacy, “I try to bring color and composition to the things we like, and we both agree it has worked out well!”
