It was supposed to be an Airbnb. But after Rebecca Ward came in to select finishes and furnishings, the homeowner of this custom new build had a major change of heart. “The client was so happy with the result, she decided to keep the home for herself,” says Ward.
The choice is no surprise, considering how many irresistible elements Ward was able to bring to the home, including the perfectly placed pops of color, striking artwork selections and overall relaxing vibe. “The client came to us with a strong sense of style, a love of neutrals and natural materials, and a craving for some bright pops of color,” says Ward, who describes her approach to the project as a combination of midcentury modern and Zen. “She had great taste but was afraid to incorporate bold colors on her own. We helped her make her dreams a reality.”
Her tips for bringing bold color into design? “You have to pick your moments. You’ll notice that the dining room wall and the TV media cabinet are blue, but the majority of the other items in the living and dining areas are neutral or muted, which allows those blue areas to really pop and take center stage.”
