The owner of this property is an artist who functions in textiles and jewelry, with a collection she loves to have around her. As the designer says, “One of the very best factors about working on this was experiencing the wonderful treasures my client owned and loved. Having lived overseas and traveled the globe, all of her things had meaning and memories.” The activity of integrating the “meaning and memories” into a required redo was a enjoyable undertaking for Carla Aston Style Studio. The updating required to be neutral — the “treasures” had sufficient colour in themselves — but it also necessary warmth: no stark ultra-contemporary sterility would work here. The resolution was lots of pure, clean white, with mellow warmth provided by basic oak flooring finished in a medium-dark color.
Now, the treasures have a “gallery” backdrop that shows them off to benefit. Oak carries onto door frames as effectively as an sophisticated mantel bright pillows and wall hangings are all the “art” a living area (with vast wood shelving and entertainment center) requirements. Ash-toned cabinetry provides a chic neutral touch to 1 bath, although off-white graces an additional, and a vintage armchair, colorful rug, and pottery give a soaking tub further panache. The completely modern kitchen holds a massive center island, stainless-steel appliances, and tons of cabinet space, with granite countertops beneath a bay window that bathes the space in light. Every single room, from the property workplace to the dining location to the bedroom, holds some visually interesting touch — all tied collectively by skilled design.
