The writing room itself is flooded with natural light, allowing the elements of dark and light to play against each other. An insulated fabric tack wall sits behind the leather topped writing desk, providing acoustic treatment and a place to pin up images and story lines. Furnishings are an easy mix of midcentury, contemporary and future classics, sitting in a palette of American walnut, neutrals and a strong blue tone. An over scaled chair and a modest sofa provide areas for reading, reflection and discussion. The existing carriage house barreled ceiling is painted white to reflect the outside light, off-setting the square floor plan. A simple circular dropped bronze pendant celebrates the ceilings curves with a comfortable glow for burning the midnight oil. Custom rugs in silk and wool add a touch of luxe, further quieting the space for creativity.
