Mix in drywall or plaster with reclaimed wood and stone. The white walls in this bedroom let the Montana moss rock fireplace and rough ceiling beams and planks stand out. The rest of the color and material palettes pick up on the colors found in the stone and wood.
Lights. If you have a well‐placed window in your kitchen but the angle does not invite a lot of light it could be a perfect place to add a pendant light. The fixture will help illuminate the counter and will give the feeling of a natural radiance emanating from the outdoors.
This fantastic open kitchen has several shades of warm and cool neutrals with just a small strip of gold. When you use just a tiny amount of a bold color in an otherwise neutral space be sure to put the color on something that you want to draw the eye to such as the quartz countertop here.
Elegant Moldings. When a client's home has historic character I never want to cover it up. Shades mounted inside the window frame paired with eye‐catching trim allow light control without feeling fussy. If you don't have historic molding a window is a great place to add some. It's a smaller task than lining a whole ceiling and you can do it in just one room.
Repurpose horseshoes in an artistic way. On this animal rescue ranch kicking off dusty boots and hanging one's hat upon opening the door are everyday occurrences. Designer Fellman (see the second photo) composed horseshoes found on the property and then had a metalworker solder them together.
Green Sashes. Or try a dark green window sash. It's softer than black but still classic and neutral as it picks up the colors in nature. A magnificently tall ceiling like this one is beautiful but not required
Shelves. As the trend of open upper shelves continues to grow people are looking for new ways to apply them. One of my favorite ways is stretching shelves across windows.
This sophisticated bedroom gets a nice punch of color via furniture and decorative accessories in happy shades of coral. Because the coral elements are spread throughout the room it doesn't feel overly colorful and your eye is able to move about the space taking it all in. Additionally the white elements in the room keep the taupey‐tan hues from looking too muddy.
