The wooden wall was created to add visual interest to the walls flanking our fireplace. The wood was a salvaged subfloor. We love the texture and age of the wood mixed with more modern elements
This is a vintage shooting target I had framed. Anything can become a piece of artwork when properly framed.
In order for our fireplace to stand out and look unique we had a metal front fabricated. It is single piece of bent steel.
We painted the ceiling black to match the floor (which is stained concrete) It actually adds height to the space and helps to complete the monochromatic theme.
I had lucite rods fabricated and had painters drop cloths made into draperies. It is a fun juxtaposition.
Multiple items become one large artwork.
Drop cloth drapes
Our favorite piece of artwork is this piece crafted out of 1000s of cut cardboard leaves.
Hallways don't have to be boring. Dress them up with chandeliers and skinny consoles.
Symmetry is our friend. And don't be afraid to use something out of scale.

By painting the ceiling black, we were able to create some architectural detail in a house with little.

Have the stairway lead to something exciting. It makes guests want to explore.
