The idea is to take the house in a modern, clean direction which works with the plain lines the house already has. But, because I love texture, and don't like when modern turns sterile, there will still need to be colors and finishes that infuse a little european glamour into the whole thing. Some soul. Some lush, albeit understated, sophistication. Stone, wood, metal, velvet. I also love my moody touches. The house has great light, so not sure if I will want to paint any interior walls very dark (though I am considering it for the master), but I definitely want to paint the outside black.
It's all going to take time. Some things we'll do ourselves and some we'll need a contractor for. Hopefully a year from now we'll be finished? Or making good progress? Realistically I know that these things take time. So we'll just have to see how it plays out. Can't wait.
