The larger the room the greater the challenge. But, as Alessandra shows so beautifully in her tree-house themed room, "Foglia," at Kips Bay Showhouse Dallas … it’s simply a matter of playing with scale.
With a twenty-four foot ceiling (higher than the length of the room!) and monumental bay windows looking out to a lovely meadow, Alessandra created a true living room that took full advantage of its assets, inside and out.
Alessandra started with our Foglia Madagascar wallcovering and custom-designed a dégradé effect (think ombré but with a pattern) to split the height of the room in a calming, natural way.
She created a layout that could scale up or down depending on the activity. A room to bring people together as well as accommodate smaller, more intimate groups.
Working with THE SHADE STORE, Alessandra designed linen blinds to welcome lovely light and beautiful shadows into the room - like sunlight coming through tree tops, creating a dappled shade.
The natural materials and chosen color palette were a celebration of nature and contributed to what turned out to be an incredibly relaxing space.
