Monday Inspiration: Architectural Design

I find it really helpful and interesting to learn the bones of a home before starting the interior design. The architectural design can inspire me to create a complementary space or to create juxtaposition.

I love how Barry Dixon used the architecture in this dining room to create a regally rustic space. Although the room still feels traditionally luxurious, it is still gets a modern touch from the shock of color with the chartreuse chair backs.

Having a full wall of windows could be difficult for a designer but Powell & Bonnell opted to use the arched windows as inspiration for a light and airy transitional living room that I think is fabulous.
