Window seats have always held a certain charm to me. They remind me of a childhood I would like to have had! There is some unexplained expectation the outside world offers from the comfy safety of that vantage point. Awkward walls, due to doorways and traffic flow that cannot hold a couch or pair of chairs can become a focal point by adding some shelves and creating that cozy extra seating that is perfect for sitting and dreaming on a rainy day…………
I love red! The warm, vibrant, spicy feel of red can make such a dramatic difference in a room. Faced with a tall viually imposing wall, I chose to add molding details and touches of red to add visual interest. The pattern on the wall creates relevance and balance by framing the art work and sconces. This staircase had started with an ordinary brown oak and black iron railing. Removing the wood tops of the ballisters and adding decorative glass balls added some whimsical detail to the railing and the red paint with some metallic accenting really give it a custom feel. Repeating this vibrant accent color creates a relationship with the other red accents in the space giving the open floorplan a visual flow.
This GREEN ‘BADGE” is linked to my profile and photos at WWW.HOUZZ.COM a newish online magazine. I find this to be such a brilliant concept and was thrilled to meet owner, innovator, CEO-ess and self described “design junkie” Adi Tatarko at an event in NYC recently. I see people like my successful 26 year old daughter sit and swipe with an ipad and really have no need for printed magazines. This site is not only an online magazine but a community, a forum for learning, sharing your knowledge and exposing your work to the worldwide masses. I am thrilled to be a part of the HOUZZ community and wish Adi and her team continued success as her venture derived from personal passion becomes a worldwide phenomenon.
