Rich Wall Colors for a Great Room Loft

Three deep, saturated colors combine in one two-story open loft space. The architecture is inspired by a mid-century modern aesthetic with a Pacific Northwest inspired color palette. The client wanted a color plan that brightened the gray winter days giving their vacation condo a ski lodge feeling.

The two story loft area consisted of the dining area downstairs and an office upstairs. The entire loft area is open to the living room and kitchen and is part of a great-room. The architectural space was complex and mulit-use, which made it a fascinating project. I love architectural projects that are complex juxtapositions of space and structure. Designing a interior color plan is like creating a lovely rubix cube of color you can walk through.
