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
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.
