My mom, Sharon Mount, for her truly amazing help with the space planning.
What inspired you?
We were inspired by thickets, and the idea of creating a small, perfect haven that makes you happy every time you experience it. [more below....]
...We wanted every area and room to have a purpose and fit our needs and habits (the good ones, at least) exactly. We used a mix of clean, simple pieces of furniture with older ones showing patina, and modern classic designs with more embellished, whimsical ones. We tried to use luxurious textures, appealing colors and patterns, and a good sense of humor throughout.
Create a unique feeling for each room or functional area of a room, but keep them cohesive enough to flow into each other and make the space feel larger.
