Private realms of the home, more intimate in nature, such as bathrooms and particularly, bedrooms, are spaces in which one might experiment with style, color and form, but communal areas of the home not only serve as the foundation for the tone of a home’s interior style and provide a space in which one might receive guests and commune with people, but can also serve as a space in which a home’s inhabitants might commune with the external environment. The living rooms that make up this collection are varied and desirable, but those that immediately follow are examples of how a living room can serve as an internal space that is still very much a part of its landscape.
Unlike those that came before it, this image and the images to follow have chosen highly elemental materials over glass walls to convey the omnipresence of the natural world. Materials such as stone and as the case is here, wood, surround the inhabitants in an earthy quality that is complemented by a roaring fire and the occasional, carefully placed indoor plant, but offset by modern lines and creative lighting.
In keeping with a palette that will comfortably translate to the different natures of each of a home’s rooms, the final images have adopted a predominantly neutral color scheme and preferred to incorporate colorful accents through styling. Styling, in both of these spaces, also hints at what lies beyond the abode’s external walls with the addition of organic pendant lighting here, and in the case of the image to follow, a large white Buddhist bust and orchid centerpieces.
