Color Me Darker

Custom bookcases bring in much-needed architectural detail and help anchor the seating area. Designer Vicki Bolick made a subtle color change on the mantel and interior of the bookcase, painting the areas a darker taupe to add definition and dimension.

No-Watering Rule

The homeowners love the look of flowers, but don't like the maintenance routine that real plants require. Vicki worked around her "no-watering rule" with floral paintings and the spare use of low-maintenance plants.

Gray and Blue Color Scheme

The neutral and blue color palette unifies the space. Soft colors take away the starkness and bring out the vibrancy in the art.

Intimate Dining Is an Option

Vicki offset the dark finish on the dining area furniture by using a glass-top table, light chairs and silver accessories.

In Love With Linen

Even though the custom linen chair is traditional in shape, it feels modern upholstered in a jaunty stripe in an airy, open room.
