The goal for this young family when designing their dream home was to blend their love of a craftsman exterior with a clean-lined, contemporary interior. We paid homage to the wife's Danish heritage by incorporating elements characterized by the Scandinavian movement; functionality, beauty, use of natural materials, soft hues, and a constrained hand in styling. The resulting space feels uncluttered, warm, lived in and welcoming. A sense of earthiness was achieved through the use of stone, varying textures, a natural palette, and warm woods. Painted tongue and groove paneling on the ceilings in the great room and master bedroom adds rustic cosiness. Also important was maximizing the abundance of natural southern light and introducing views of the lush gardens outside with the addition of large windows.
