A Cool Home in the Palisades

Project:  Take a colonial home and turn it into a modern, bright, comfortable home with a loft-like feel.

Design Challenge:  While there were lots of windows, the ceilings are not that tall to naturally give the space that European/Scandinavian feel.  By using a bright white paint throughout the first floor and contrasting it with a dark gray fireplace column and abstract black and white wallpaper in the foyer, we tried to raise the ceiling in the spaces and make it feel open and light.

Best Part:  That wallpaper you can see in almost every space which is so fun!
