Adding Warmth and Energy With Art

High ceilings, natural light, and neutral furnishings give this room a calming feel. Art brings warmth and intimacy to the quiet, elegant design.

Sweet Licorice dialogues beautifully with the stone fireplace and coffee table. It’s sophisticated yet playful, bold yet warm — a tasty treat for the senses within this elegant, minimalist design.
