When we started designing this space, we felt we were starting with a blank slate. The room included some nice details, but overall the space felt bland. Our focus was on highlighting the natural light in this room and our intention was to bring out the natural beauty that already existed here. With this in mind, we painted the molding of the window black, to add contrast and drama. This allowed us to create a bright and airy feeling. We utilized natural elements to make things feel warm and textural, while contrasts of modern and traditional elements add interest that invites you in to explore the space. This living space is an example of how elements of nature can often act as artwork in our homes.
