Pleasant Living

We often describe this color palette as Chocolate and Vaniila. The challenge here was to create a comfortable, livable home from 3500 square feet of open space.

It is Venetian Stucco which is a centuries old process of adding pigment to the finishing coats of plaster. There are many similar DIY products on the market.

Glass shelves - Love this! Can you tell me about the glass shelves - how they are installed? Can you tell me specifically where you got the brackets?

It is actually Venetian Stucco that goes on in thin layers and then is waxed and polished. The color is basically custom and created by the different layers of stucco.This was applied by a professional faux finisher however Benjamin Moore sells kits and gives directions for the technique for DIY.

Love how the glass shelving in this living room is used to display coral. The glass shelf above the fireplace also serves as a mantle...very clean!

Brown and white — or should I say “chocolate and vanilla” — are stylish, contemporary and not at all dreary when put together with an eye for balance. Equalising total areas of light and dark prevents the dark colours eclipsing the room.
