1916 Artful Home, Grosse Pointe, MI
Detroit Home Award Winner
This project began with a non-negotiable request from the client: A citrus yellow living room in their traditional, 1916, home. The palette was inspired by the client’s bold art collection, including their fun, fanciful portraits by a French artist, custom ceramic and tile work by a Michigan ceramist, and a hand-painted foyer floor painstakingly executed by a Grosse Pointe artist. The high voltage wall colors required consistent selections in fabrics and furnishings to provide a color balance. Black became the grounding agent in every room, providing visual relief from the high-intensity palette. Fun, but sophisticated, a masterful mix in style. This home was featured as the cover story of Home & Design magazine and was awarded Best Use of Color by the Detroit Home Design Awards. Select any image to view larger.
