Originally, this space had a dark Tuscan style that was intense and in your face. Every single detail contributed to the exaggerated theme. After living with the various shades of browns that inhibited the home for too many years, the clients knew it was time for a change. To contrast what was once an overwhelming room, the client’s goal was to create a retreat that allowed the mind to rest. The shift from the dark Tuscan feel to white Transitional made for the perfect opportunity to achieve the desired tone. Removing the fireplace “chimney” created modern lines that balance the height of the bookshelves. The furniture layout allows the family conversational space, while also being functional for everyday purposes. The monochromatic color palette found in the custom furniture is warm and inviting. For additional elements of depth, the rough texture of the stone fireplace and fossil coffee table complement that of the soft boucle fabric used on the chaise lounge. Stylized bookcases established visual interest without sacrificing the minimal approach taken. Since the dining room and hearth room are connected, incorporating the same color palette shaped the seamless flow from room to room. This space has the perfect harmony between elements of open and airy mixed with the feeling of coziness and intimacy.
