Refreshingly tailored in styling and scale, this modest sized home was conceived as a desert retreat for an East Coast client. The sophisticated mixture of new and antique furniture, with a decidedly understated elegance, is a classic blending of dramatic architecture and tailored materiality. A soothing quality of light pervades this home, and a calming subdued color palette furthers this restful effect. Integrally colored concrete floors and French white oak wood floors, combine with soft white lacquered moldings to help to define this classic interpretation of updated traditionalism. Restraint is the word that best describes the method in which this interior was conceived. The finished interior is at once restful and compelling, both “classic” and “new”.
