The success of any interior design depends on the ability to add layer upon layer of objects, furniture, art, decoration, color - and blend them seamlessly. A smaller space, like this one, allows for a more intimate feeling when sitting in any of its sitting areas, but provides views from every window out to the woods and water beyond. Changing ceiling height provides variation and differentiates one space from another, even as they are next to each other. Begin with a sense of yourself, your taste and style and built on it with bold choices of paint color and beautiful objects that are meaningful to you. It is a lifelong project, never done, always waiting for the next piece to expand and enrich the space for you and your guests.
