The client obtained a 1950's home that was stuck in the 70's. It had crunchy plaid orange carpet, yellow brick fireplace and knotty pine paneling everywhere. When we came together on this interior project I wanted to play up the rustic masculinity of wrought iron in the space which would complement the existing iron fireplace hooks. We used an iron fireplace cover, iron drapery rods and rings, and two black height adjustable wall lamps that I had previously product developed on either side of the bed. We then added Danish Modern furniture and drapes to create formality. The knotty pine walls were painted to make the Danish Modern furniture stand out. This allowed the color of the ceiling to be reflected in the bedding and in the commissioned art. To fix the dirty yellow bricks we stained them grey with multiple layers of transparent concrete stain, then stained the hearth bricks black.
