With a new place on my horizon once I’m married in June, I’m getting giddy with ideas and inspiration for our first home together. After a stint experimenting with dark and moody, I’ve decided to go back to my old love of white and airy. But this time, I have a few new ideas I’d like to try.
I love the idea of painting every interior door a nice, glossy black. It’s a classic look that adds visual strength to your walls and highlights (not hides) individual areas of your home. At a time when open concept floor plans are still all the range, I like the notion of embracing closed concept homes and stepping away from the norm.
When I first saw Nate’s New York home in the November issue of Architectural Digest, I immediately dog eared this image. Not only do I find it totally genius to place windows instead of walls between rooms allowing the two spaces relate to each other, I also love how Nate hung window treatments from them. It cozy-ups the space and works as a bit of a mind trick/optical illusion/unexpected surprise. An idea definitely worth borrowing!
