In pursuit of authentic individualized living spaces, Mothé works closely with her clients to ensure a tasteful aesthetic that will fully enhance every architectural feature of their home.
“I worked with neutral tones adding a splash of color to bring life to the overall project while maintaining a calm environment.” Mothé shares.
The focus of this project is the entryway, which is the first impression of the house. As soon as the oversized entry door is opened, your eyes are directed beyond the floor to ceiling windows to the view of water. The position and light colors of most of the furniture complement the exterior view while the rich burgundy chairs provide a touch of life and contrast with the blue background without overpowering its effect.
The dining room is very austere, providing all the focus of the room to the ceiling lamp and artwork, giving a modern and traditional look enhanced by the addition of those elements. In the master suite, there is also a mix of contemporary and classy furniture, providing elegant and clean lines at the same time.
