"My client spoke about removing the trappings of her previous home life to make the house feel new, modern, uncluttered. She used words like “simplify,” “fresh,” and “calming,” and she mentioned spiritual well-being, simplicity, and clarity. Until someone understood her intentions, no floor plan, material selection, or swatch of fabric could possibly have been relevant.
This was to be a renovation, sure, but to her it was about personal reinvention and reorientation. So out went all the traditional effects and formal furniture arrangements and in came light and openness. We removed walls, edited the furnishings, and introduced a simple palette of neutrals and naturals." - Excerpt from STORIED INTERIORS
