“Upstairs, there’s a special hallway rotunda teeming with sunlight,” says Susana, who embraced the light and decorated minimally to honour it. A vase of fresh cherry blossom branches adds all the eye candy needed, and a circular rug with an artistic weave adds extra interest. Such intricately patterned rugs are displayed throughout the house, and the upstairs landing is no exception, with a vintage option rich and saturated with colour. It adds a lot of character to the pared-back design.
Salvaged leaded glass windows used as cabinet fronts lend the kitchen distinctive interest and old-time character. “My contractor said, ‘I’ve got these old windows lying around, if you want to use them for your cabinets,’” explains Jim. “They happened to be this buttery yellowy colour and I kept them that way to offset the stark white and the teal.”
