This client loves the outdoors and is an avid hunter. He wanted to showcase his passion but not make the space too masculine. The goal was to provide a balance of traditional and classic elements, colors and textures to bring it all together comfortably. The color palette he requested for the main level was rich burgundy, reds and greens. In the foyer, I blended the antler chandelier and zebra patterned rug with the more traditional sideboard and tufted leather bench for functionality and to set the tone for the rest of the home. A handmade teak wood root bench fits the nature-like decor and leather cornice boards with oversized nail trim don’t interfere with the wooded outdoor view. A surprisingly fun part of the project was the lower-level staircase which led to a more relaxed area for entertaining. The comfy white linen couch and black leather swivel chairs provide a classic traditional style while the stainless deer head sculptures add some whimsy to a powder room. This hunter knows how to have fun.
