When we begin a new project, setting our benchmark for the finishes and tactile feel is vital. We want to deliver an experience that is cherished by the clients on a daily basis and strums a background track as an ode to their sensibilities. We push the clients past their current style, dare them to dream so that we can dare to design it.
Minimizing "extras" and streamlining the spaces was a central brief for the project. The team aimed to highlight the surfaces and textures that were giving life to the spaces - adding items themselves wasn't as much a priority as was adding feel itself. Feel in the form of material, texture, color, and even the intangible sensation of being in the spaces and having weight lifted off your shoulders.
The clients' love for equestrian life sparked details throughout the Kitchen and bathroom renovation. Texture like knurling, brass wire cloth and hide on mirrors were deftly incorporated to bring along the client's taste while highlighting their personal style's path forward.
All paint colors used were from Benjamin Moore's "Color Stories" lineup - which doesn't use straight black pigments to tint colors. This makes the color shift more throughout a day as the pigments take on new life depending on how the light is hitting the surface.
“Good design is as little design as possible.”
