This project is located in Mount Kisco, NY. For the Master Bedroom, the client wanted a comfortable space to relax in that was not completely neutral. The space is grounded by a rich gray-green wall color. By adding hints of minty green, we were able to achieve a balance of color and neutrality. For the Family Room, the client did not shy away from color, which resulted in a funky, vibrant space. Keeping the large upholstery neutral, it allowed us to go bold on the smaller pieces including the turquoise drapes, berry-colored patterned chairs, and bright pillows.
The goal for integrating artwork into this project was to emphasize and bring out the accent colors in each space. In the family room, we selected art that incorporated bright berry and aqua to give the space personality. For the master, we played off the pale minty greens to keep with the calming, serene feeling. Since the living room was more of a masculine game room, we selected art that was neutral and black and white.
The collaboration between artist and designer flowed seamlessly for this project. We sent images of the space and swatches of fabric to our art consultant who then showed us options that complimented each of our designs. From these options, we selected the appropriate art for each space along with our client.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
