A classic twist


This space has a beautiful balance to it - warm yet fresh, classic yet modern. Crisp all white walls contrasting with warm taupes, tan and caramel. Chocolate brown paired with dramatic black and white stripes. A minimal fireplace with an ornate gold clock floating above. A classic pairing of two topiary tree - but with an extended and slightly askew trunk, giving a sculptural and more relaxed feeling.

I do enjoy the askew trees in the entryway. I came across your post this morning while browsing interior design blogs and your take on interior d├ęcor is exquisite. This room has impeccable taste and design function, but what about the windows? It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.
