The biggest challenge was to ensure the vast, open concept main area of the house (which connected the entry, family room, dining area, and kitchen) flowed, yet remained distinct, within one huge, open space. We strategically zoned the areas with furniture placement and separate ceiling treatments to give each area within the open space its virtual boundaries.
The homeowner is an avid baker and wanted a fun design detail in her back kitchen/pantry. Whimsical geometric wallpaper was chosen to keep a room that’s often deemed utilitarian and not needing a lot of attention an interesting and a happy place to spend time.
Large scale artwork was selected in proportion to the 2-story walls to ensure there was adequate presence, but in keeping with the generally streamlined flavor the client preferred.
Performance fabrics and leathers were used throughout the home’s furnishings to preserve the investment, while being mindful of their active family.
With black, grey and white as the primary colors throughout the 5 bathrooms, it was key to vary the tile layouts, shapes, sizes and textures to give each area its individual eye-catching features. For example, the exterior of the shower wall in the primary bath is clad in a charcoal tile with a curved relief resembling water cascading down the wall.
