This is the kind of design I’ve become more and more attracted to lately, and it’s a style I think must be terribly difficult to achieve well. The level of restraint used, combined with the terrific eye for selecting exactly the right pieces, leads to an overall feeling of sophistication within a somewhat bare space. Only exactly what’s needed is used, and that’s used perfectly. Yet this is no minimalist museum–it’s still so inviting.
This, to me, is practically flawless. The client, after my own heart, requested “an open, simple, low maintenance design” and the use of some of her favorite materials, old barn wood and rusty steel amongst them. The result is so inviting.
