the challenge
Breathe new life into an outdated (but loved!) space

Somehow she knew. When Becca Casey saw the dark oak 
 floors, red silk wallpaper from the 1960s — oh yes, and yellow patterned wallpaper too — she knew that this was the home she was searching for. Soon the East Coast designer and founder of Becca Interiors revived the outdated but well-loved Connecticut home into a bright and comfortable family residence where the fireplace roars all winter and the flowers bloom all summer.
On a warm fall day, the Loloi team dropped in to see how Becca layered hand-knotted rugs, throw pillows, and art into her home. “They really create an extra layer of comfort,” she said, fluffing a pairing of pillows before settling deep into a plush sofa in the position of someone who loves no place more than home.

Inside Becca’s Project

Loloi – How would you describe your design style?

Becca – My design point of view really stems from my upbringing in the English countryside. I really enjoy mixing and juxtaposing different styles, historic pieces, antique pieces, with some more modern silhouettes.

Loloi – What were some of the major transformations you made in this space?

Becca – We wanted to utilize the light that the house brings in through these beautiful windows that are almost floor-to-ceiling, so I decided to change out the floor into a white oak because I knew that would help cast the light in a different way. We decided to lighten up the walls with ivory paint, even widening the doorways, making it feel a little bit more updated, with a little bit more formality to it. We were really changing the nature of the space.

Loloi – What was the most notable challenge for this project?

Becca – One room that was once an office is now my daughter’s nursery, so the biggest design challenge was understanding how we were going to create a home for years to come, in a way that was functional to the needs of our growing family, little ones, dogs, animals — and all sorts.

Loloi – How do you usually approach picking out textiles?

Becca – I’ve gone about it in two different ways. Sometimes I start with the rug — if I find the rug I love — then I’ll build a room schematic off that. Alternatively, I’ve done it the other way, where I’ve created a whole room schematic that’s a beautiful serene, subdued, palette. But then I’ll bring in a rug that really gives it that grounding element or that pop that it needs.

Loloi – We noticed you used a few different designs of the Heirloom Collection. Why were you drawn to that rug?

Becca – I really gravitate towards texture. I absolutely love nubby linen. I love a good high wool pile rug, and the Heirloom Collection has a beautiful handwoven quality to it.

Loloi – How has your design process changed over time?

Becca – I've had the privilege of collaborating with extraordinary clients who entrust me with their design vision. Over time, I've developed a profound understanding of my own design authenticity. Embracing this direction and essence, rather than chasing trends, is the key to creating truly harmonious spaces.
