Designer Tineke Triggs designs a great room that combines a couple's taste for modern design and a love of art with warmth and functionality.
A San Francisco couple with a love of art and a taste for modern design ask designer Tineke Triggs to create a great room which shows off their personal art collection but also has warmth and feels livable.
Triggs explains how she used the right placement of art to address the layout of the space and created a great room with a serious sense of style.
The home had a highly modern palette which was perfect for displaying art but didn't provide the feeling of a home. The challenge was finding and creating pieces to highlight the art but warm the space.
The layout of the space was a bit challenging due to the location of the front door and some floating stairs. By creating the flow of the rooms based on the integration of art, we were able to overcome the perceived challenges to the space.
When you really believe in a design element that is crucial to the overall look and feel of the space, you need to take a risk and do it. You might fail and it might cost you, but it might be the element that makes the design breathtaking.
