An Artful Great Room
Designer Lauren Sweet-Schuler created this beautiful great room, where a treasured large scale painting by artist and filmmaker, Julian Schnabel, felt completely natural within its surroundings. Through furniture and textile selections, she developed a unique color story. Soft lavender, rich wine and calming neutral colors gracefully unite art and interiors.
With thoughtful space planning, this space is reimagined, not only as a functional great room, but also as a gallery space. Architectural interest was added to the ceiling plane by installing broad wood planks, providing texture and a subtle linear pattern. Draperies in a sheer Holly Hunt fabric envelop the space, letting soft light filter through.
The design selections are dynamic yet simple, highlighting the unique architecture of the room, and creating the perfect canvas for this treasured artwork.
