Since our client had some antique pieces from his previous home but also appreciated contemporary design, we created an eclectic motif that is timeless. We took advantage of the very high ceilings and built an open loft with balustrade, supported by hand-hewn, wood pilasters. It became a small library for relaxing and reading. Access to the library is via a dynamic, circular stair that we had custom made. Note the tongue and groove white walls.
In the shot of the Living Room, on the brown wall behind the sofa, we have a horizontal chair rail and matching vertical moldings to emphasize the fantastic height of the room. Note how well the contemporary, polished, chrome accent pieces coordinate with the traditional Living Room and dining room chairs. The parquet wood flooring turned out to be just beautiful.
