DESIGN VISION

A gentleman’s retreat wrapped with aubergine tweed on the walls, with just enough space for a pair of cozy mohair chairs to view the fireplace. Above the mantle hangs the ultimate catch: an ancient fish mural from Fossil Lake in Oregon. Intriguing books, foreign collectibles and eye-catching abstract artwork subtly show off the varied interests of this modern day gentleman.

DESIGN CHALLENGE

Creating a warm, inviting room that felt masculine but not stuffy.
