Lighter wood finishes allow the character of the grain to show through. Combining soft textured fabrics and a subtle metallic chandelier, the effect of this room encourages classic luxury while appearing effortless.

The image on the right shows a finished space using a lighter paint color for the walls, with a refinished furniture piece to enhance the combination of tones in the flooring.

Textures in area rugs and canvas art highlight the subtle yet dynamic tones in a neutral pallet.

A child’s’ room or nursery does not always have to boast a bright color pallet. A neutral base allows room for growth and in decor as the children grow and hobbies change.

Exposed Brick doesn’t need to feel dull or unfinished: Soften it with light tones and soft textures.

Floating shelves with exposed hardware is an industrial and rugged installation that is softened with the neutral painted cabinets as well as the grass cloth window treatments.
