Spellman Brady & Company (SBC), an award-winning interior design firm based in St. Louis, MO, completed the interior design for the newly constructed Anthology of Farmington, a senior living community with 70 assisted living units and 30 memory care units, located in Farmington Hills, Michigan. The community is owned and operated by Anthology Senior Living, a CA Ventures – Senior Living Company. Spellman Brady was responsible for the selection, procurement and installation of the project’s finishes, furniture, artwork, and accessories for the project.

Spellman Brady developed the interior design for all the communal areas which included the resident corridors, lobby, bistro, dining room, family suite, theater, library, and pub. The overall interior design concept was built upon Farmington’s proximity to Detroit and its history of producing elegant, classic cars from a bye-gone era that featured plush textures and rich jewel-tone colors. The result is a contemporary design with a hospitality feel that incorporates high contrast colors, luxurious patterned fabrics, and accessories with a layered eclectic appeal.


The artwork package features several custom art pieces, such as the hubcap wall in the pub and book wall in the library, utilizing upcycled materials. The meticulously selected mixed media art package brings a wealth of vibrancy and reminiscence to each of the spaces, especially through the inclusion of photographs and paintings of iconic local destinations.


SBC collaborated with architects, Roseman & Associates and general contractor, Brinkmann Constructors, to provide a unique senior living experience that aligns with Anthology Senior Living's mission to provide residents the best in hospitality and care. The artwork was curated - and some designed & created in-house - by Spellman Brady to complement the project's finishes, while adding texture and dimension. The artwork package so much as dots the "i's" in the interior design and inspires all who reside and visit the community.
