Designer's Notes

Our goal for this project was to transform a cold yet architecturally significant space into a warm, inviting home featuring artistic, high-end furniture, rugs and lighting. All pieces were to be authentic, unique and interesting, yet very comfortable. The couple loves the American Crafts style, which you can see reflected in all details of their home from their artwork subject matter to the stitching details of their area rugs and sofas. Final furniture selections included pieces by Pucci, Holly Hunt, Vitra, Knoll Studio, Poltrona Frau, Herman Miller, Lignet-Roset, Cassina, Carl Hansen and custom pieces by various artists. The homeowners enjoy entertaining guests on a regular basis. The house's open plan allows for a variety of dynamic furniture groupings that create a fabulous entertainment space. The kitchen pantry, garage and all closets are custom designed to fully maximize all storage spaces. A neutral fabric palette of various textures is selected, keeping the focus on the brightly colored photography collection. Earthy accent colors such as fresh greens and rusty colors fuse the interior with the beautiful exterior mountainside views.
