Artwork carefully chosen in a geometric motif and displayed to complement the asymmetrical placement of the window in architecture of the space.

To foster in the creation of a music room, formerly a dining room, a natural palette selected.



Beveled mirror screen echoes the architecture of the trayed ceiling.


With a warm black, white and cream palette, taken from the concert grand piano, accessories were chosen to strike a subdued tone.


Accessories are a fluid extension of the natural world outside.

An inert hornets nest adds a layer of texture and depth on a table scape.


Keeping the palette clean, table scapes focus on the homeowner’s  nested collections.

Authentic details feature cherry pits, lichen moss and organic materials.




Nature becomes the palette, relaxing the eye.

The homeowner, an interior designer and a gallery owner, chose a palette mix of organic and non-organic art with accessories.

“The black on silver theme combined with gray-scale tones strike a subdued and pleasing note.”

Side note:

Before removing, altering, or interfering with any bird nest in any way, determine whether or not the disturbance is legal according to local, regional, and national wildlife laws. Most birds are protected species. Nests of invasive birds, such as house sparrows or European starlings, however, are not protected at any time.   If the nest has been abandoned or no eggs have yet been laid, it can be removed or destroyed as needed.
