Hunter tour shows how ceiling fans transform spaces
Simple updates like paint, pillows and a new ceiling fan can make a room look brand new, and Hunter Fan Company’s team of designers showed how it’s done during the 2017 Hunterventions tour. Our designers helped five families with a room makeover to show how small updates can make a big difference. We began in Virginia Beach where a family of five (plus two dogs) needed help updating their living room, a project they just hadn’t been able to get to in the five years that they’ve lived there. Design Director Patrick O’Connell brightened up the living room by painting the walls a light color as well as painting the fireplace white. To give the room an updated rustic, coastal look, we used wood surfaces with rustic finishes, blue décor accents and topped it all off with the Hepburn modern ceiling fan in matte black. This chandelier inspired ceiling fan is unmistakenably a modern, updated version of traditional design, and O’Connell especially loves the pendant inspired globe light. The Charlotte Huntervention was a special one for us: 16-year-old Gabriel has loved ceiling fans since he was a little kid. Designer Claire McRoberts was excited to give their wraparound porch a fresh farmhouse feel. The covered porch was a big space so she used rugs to define smaller spaces among the big space. To give it a modern farmhouse design, McRoberts used elements like white rocking chairs with traditional spindle detailing with clean lines on the back and added four red Mill Valley farmhouse ceiling fans. The Mill Valley is inspired by vintage pendant lighting with a hooded light with an Edison LED light bulb.
