Loosely translated throughout, from the braided wires in the glass bookcase to the translucent texture of the blue bookcases mimicking fabrics, Vivid Color is full of subtle details that always give the eye somewhere to look.

Just off the kitchen and dining area is the study, which is in a warm orange from the ceiling to the floor. On the desktop is a minimalist lamp designed by Michael Anastassiades for FLOS.

The upper cabinets in the kitchen are a rich gold balanced out by the black lower cabinets and textured white tiles.

The custom base of the dining table references a sewing machine.

The glass cabinet encloses the TV keeping it out of sight until it’s time to watch. The geometric design on the doors looks like the lines you see on sewing patterns.
