Entry Description

The interior detailing of this home is about restraint and control and emphasizes the holistic approach to marrying architecture and interiors. The use of consistent materials and colors throughout the home and from the inside to the outside creates seamless transitions of the areas. Spaces relate to one another by means of sculptural design and minimal use of the traditional “hallway”. Floating ceiling details are purposely placed to define spaces such as in the dining room, kitchen, and art gallery. The Zodiaq backsplash in the kitchen and over the dining buffet is linearly scored to compliment the home’s clean lines. Following the home’s minimalist design, virtually no moldings are used. The cabinetry was designed in an architectural manner to become a detail that relates to the ceiling and wall details. Art niches are designed at the base of the sculptural stairs and also in the master bedroom. The architecture provides abundant natural lighting allowing for fewer light fixtures. A feeling of warmth is created with textures such as the stone walls as well as the limestone floors that have the look of wood planks. The furniture is comprised of textural contrasts of soft dove gray, charcoal, and white. The color scheme was selected to allow the art in the space to be the color. Several pops of color and classic pieces were intended to be “sculptures” including the classic modern orange chair in the upstairs loft. The reclaimed wood dining table and cocktail table provide an organic interest and contrast to the clean modern lines of the architecture. Keeping “green”, sustainable furnishings were used throughout the home. All the upholstery is made in the United States, custom furnishings were designed and made by local craftsmen, and all the decorative elements were produced by independent artists/craftsmen.
