Natural tones bring the living area and dining room together in this chic Chicago home.
A monochromatic palette and clean, tailored lines ensure the dynamic contrast of light and dark takes center stage.
Once the traditional layers of the space were removed the new millwork made the space sing. The focal element of the living room, a clean lined floor to ceiling Macassar ebony wood fireplace was added with a honed limestone mantle anchored the new space.
This couple could only agree on one thing when it came to their home and that was they needed to hire a designer to merge their very different styles, one contemporary and clean, the other traditional with collections of antiques.
Clean, contemporary elements were blended with Asian antiques to blend two very different styles in harmony.
The dining and living room work together both physically and aesthetically through the use of millwork detail. A buffet was added with Macassar ebony wood floor to ceiling creating the focal point in this space. Clean detailing is accented by contemporary sconces.
Silk rugs and clean lined furniture was the next layer added. The color palette warm, neutral and soothing take a backseat to the architecture.
