Guests walking the garden path from the great house to elegant French inspired guest quarters are greeted with French-style furnishings and a spare, modern color palette of soft lavenders and grays.
Taming the strong yellow maple wood floors was a challenge. Lavender, being a complimentary color of yellow, calmed the maple floors and created more harmony between the room’s elements. Similarly, creating tall valanced draperies over small windows helped enlarge the feel of the space. A faux fireplace was installed to add architectural interest and anchor the sitting area. By keeping it within the same soft color palette, the effect is very calming.
