Sometimes less is more. A simple statement piece that goes a long way. When we design a space, we always take a step back and consider what may have gone too far – too many accessories, too many pairs of pairs, patterns that aren’t jiving, maybe taking out a table.
Your eye should move gracefully through a space, stopping to pause on an unexpected piece because it catches attention. Poorly designed spaces or objects can have an adverse effect and make you feel unsettled.
This space overlooks a water view, with the focus on the outside. The vibe is relaxed and easy on the eyes. An elegant black and white color story puts the focus on letting the outside come in.
