Every detail in this condo was thoughtfully conceived to support our clients as they transitioned from a family home. The open floor plan interweaves the owners’ favorite color and textures, which repeat throughout the space.

Even with a smaller footprint, entertaining remained important to our clients. We created a living space that seats up to seven people by utilizing flexible seating such as these custom ottomans that tuck under the cocktail table when not in use.

In this open concept kitchen, RL Concetti used minimal color for a dramatic impact! Cobalt blue paired with mixed metals against the white marble create a sophisticated, yet welcoming, kitchen perfect for entertaining or a cozy night in.

We love when a dining room makes a big statement! Inspired by the brushstrokes in the paintings, we sourced the perfect rug with a similar hand. The art flanked by cobalt blue lamps set the stage perfectly for the walnut-top table below.

With an open floorplan it's important to create spaces specific to their functionality. The repeitition of cobalt blue in the pillows in the living room, as well as the dining room lamps, creates cohesion between the two spaces.

When our search for the perfect dining room chairs came up blank, we knew it was time to go custom. We designed these chairs to perfectly meet the seat height, seat back, comfort, and aesthetic needs of the space.

Every power couple needs a relaxing respite to come home to! This bedroom features a neutral palette rich in patterns and textures. We wanted to honor the couple's love of cobalt blue through the dramatic upholstered bed.

This second bedroom needed to function as a home office, guest suite, and a space to watch TV. The custom millwork piece features a desk turned Murphy bed, an entertainment center, as well as plenty of space to showcase the couple's favorite antiques.

We took our client’s love of peacocks and brought it to life in her bungalow. The smaller footprint, along with our client's desire to entertain, challenged us to maximize the use of the space and use strategic design to make the space feel bigger.

RL Concetti knows that the pieces in a room affect how we experince the space. We always incorporate beloved items into the design refresh, like these paintings from our client's favorite artist.

The dining room blends our client’s modern eclectic taste with family heirlooms. RL Concetti sourced this graphic wallpaper to subtly tie to the peacock colors featured in the adjacent living area and infuse the owner’s personality into the space.

This stunning graphic wallpaper sets the stage for our client’s mid-century Modern buffet that was passed down through generations. We take the time to learn the history and meaning behind heirlooms so we can incorporate them into the new vision.

RL Concetti is never afraid of bold pattern, colors, and textures. When paired thoughtfully, the end result is a space that feels like a work of art.

We loved creating this updated play on a classic black-and-white palette in this penthouse kitchen. The island is one beautiful large slab of marble reinforced with steel beams to create a cantilever island perfect for hosting while cooking.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

At RL Concetti, we are committed to creating spaces that are both menaingful and functional. This gorgeous black marble tile is a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution. We know the owner will enjoy cooking in this incredible space!

Can you imagine relaxing in this soaking tub with a glass of wine after a long day? Our client knew she wanted to frame her tub on this original arched window to gaze over the city after working or traveling.

In this historic Book Cadillac building, we worked with our client to transform the boiler room into a luxurious penthouse with 360-degree-views overlooking the city. We kept the interior simple and sleek, mirroring the sophisticated style of the owner.

Benjamin Moore’s Waterbury Green from their Historic Color Collection accents the statement wallpaper and honors the rich history of the mansion. The Regina Andrews pendants are the perfect final touch above the vanity.

When we started this project, the layout was cramped and impractical. Through strategic design, we converted an extra doorway into a shower and rearranged the floorplan to maximize the function and flow of the space.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

Statement towels, apothecary jars filled with bathroom essentials, and books are the finishing touches that truly bring this bathroom to life! We take pride in bringing each project across the finish line ready to be enjoyed for years to come.

We worked with this small family to convert an old building to a bright and airy loft in Detroit. Natural elements juxtaposed against the original industrial features creates the perfect balance of boho and Detroit grit in this small family home.

Working with the industrial elements of the space such as the exposed HVAC and steel eye beams created unique design challenges. This open concept kitchen with matte black cabinetry and a graphic backsplash blends the line of industrial and boho.

As a third-generation Detroit small-business owner, our founder loves preserving unique features from original Detroit buildings by integrating them into a modern, refreshed aestehtic. This original door made the perfect entrance to the master suite.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

Layers of rich texture and graphic patterns help to create a warm and inviting master suite even with the original concrete floors. The result is a warm, earthy vibe that feels like a luxury boutique hotel.

In this master bath, we created a half wall so the soaking tub has views directly to the large windows in the master bedroom. Repetition of a playful tile above the vanity in the water closet and shower creates subtle cohesion throughout.

This kitchen is proof you can have a dramatic impact with minimal construction. By adding crown moulding, paneling, and a fresh coat of paint, we breathed new life into the existing cabinetry and updated the rest of the fixtures throughout.

This stylish breakfast nook features a built-in bench and a statement chandelier. For our client, it's the perfect space to be with her kids as they eat breakfast or do homework while she's close by in the kitchen.

Creating an open concept in a previously compartmentalized historic apartment was no easy task. With some creative design decisions, and an incredible team, our client can now enjoy beautiful views of Detroit from her spacious kitchen.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

We believe each space should be a reflection of the person who lives within it. For this city-dweller, storage was not a priority. Instead we chose to let the playful backsplash step into the spotlight with simple floating shelves above the sink.

We love dogs, and we love people who love dogs. Designing spaces that reflect the end user includes our clients and their children - whether they be 2- or 4-legged. Comfortable and incredibly durable upholstery pieces are a staple for everyone to enjoy.

Bringing natural exterior elements inside is always a good idea. This loft has beautiful views of the Detroit River, which inspired the “sunrise over the water” palette. Rich blue walls provide the perfect backdrop for playful yellow and gold details.

Can you imagine yourself here; reading a book and enjoying a glass of wine while looking over the serene Detroit River? Creating space for intimate moments like these with beautiful fixtures and furnishings is key when creating a retreat in the busy city.

This home nestled in lush landscapes called for a monochromatic palette paired with subtle pops of color. The bright blues maintain a natural feel but provide the desired contrast to the warm wood tones.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

Incorporating natural details was a must for this client. The subtle detailing of the wood-grain area rug complements the tones in the gorgeous dining chair upholstery, with a more literal interpretation of nature with an organic branch back.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

Some design elements are just better together. The various shades of blue in the artwork above the buffet help to pull out the subtle blue detailing in the floral wallpaper.

Utilizing the space while maintaining openness became a balancing act but resulted in the perfect heart of the home. The large island with a stunning countertop act as the anchor that this family entertains around.

Connecting spaces by creating a cohesive palette helps to invite this cozy kitchen nook into the rest of the space. We used the beautiful blues of the dining room as inspiration for the playful turquoise bolster pillows.

With a love of color, pattern, and texture, as well as the courage to take a few bold risks, this client gave us the opportunity to transform their space into a truly artistic and one-of-a-kind creation.

The original inspiration for the space came from the cherry blossom fabric used on the custom occasional chairs at the end of the bed. We layered patterns, and highlighted the gorgeous purple flowers with bold shams and a comfortable rug.

Have no fear! Powder rooms are the perfect place to insert personality. The custom paper is contrasted by the black found in the molding, and window treatment adds in some gold detail for a mixed metal surprise.

photo by Chelsea Diffenderfer

Instead of hiding the strange angle of the vaulted ceiling, we highlighted it with a graphic wallpaper that featured the same bold angles. The paper inspired the selection of the modern entertainment unit as well as the chevron accent pillows.

Color, pattern, and texture - we truly believe this space has it all. The marble and gold cocktail table, scalloped cowhide rug, and a plush white throw add interest without competing with the bold pattern in the wallcovering and coloring of the sofa.

The Historic Fort Shelby Hotel in Detroit had an incredible existing palette with the original limestone flooring and brass elevators. Bold black-and-white graphics in the new artwork and tile elevates the space while maintaining the historic vibe.

A completely neutral space by RLC?! We know, it’s rare. But the creamy neutral backdrop was perfect, so the more adventurous details like the black molding and plush black leather furniture shine. We think it’s the epitome of sophistication and class.

Swoon-worthy staircase? Check! The linear lines of the mid-century meets industrial staircase are a striking feature in this amazing residential property. Rich walnut and gritty steel are a match made in staircase heaven.

Tucked away on the opposite side of the staircase is a perfect spot to sit down and enjoy conversation with guests, or a round of Monopoly with the family. The tall ceiling are highlighted with dramatic lighting against a background of metallic cork.

We’re ready to plop down on this plush sectional, which was designed custom to the needs of our client. Durability and comfort were key factors when selecting fabrics and finishing for the furniture in this family home.

The undeniable heart of this home is the modern kitchen. It’s anchored with a dynamic island featuring an overhead ceiling detail that effectively separates the kitchen from the adjacent dining space.

photo by Kendra Koman

Our client was not intimidated by a bold color selection. The orange detailing in the rug enhances the natural warmth of the walnut finishes in the accent wall while providing contrast to the cool nature of the concrete tabletop.

Organic shapes in the dreamy bedding create a subtle juxtaposition to the linear European lines in the master bedroom feature wall. This is a space the entire family comes to relax - furry friends included.

A neglected front room became a dynamic yet durable “theater room.” The stain-resistant sectional and Flor squares offer ease to parents when their children have weekly sleepovers, while not sacrificing their high-design style.

An exploration in shape, scale, texture, and color - the dynamic design of the mantel offers an opportunity to feature art while not sacrificing storage on the opposing side.

Playful pops of color and pattern helped us achieve our goal of infusing our client’s modern Birmingham home with the familiar charm of her Southern roots. Switching out the cold chrome fixtures with brass creates a familiar warmth.

photo by Kristopher Ilitch

A small powder room is given life with the addition of playful blue trim details. We continued to explore shape with the wallpaper, mirror, and fixture selections. Hexagons, triangles, squares, and circles - this bathroom has it all!

This bachelor wanted to create an elevated space that was sophisticated with a masculine touch. Accenting the deep navy blues and distressed wood detailing with crisp white accents keeps the space feeling bright and fresh.

We cannot imagine a better spot to relax and enjoy the game. The oversized sectional and upholstered cocktail table maximize comfort without compromising aesthetics. If watching football on Sunday looks this good, count us in!
