In fact, the natural details and brushed grain on each plank influenced the colour palette for the rest of the home. Look no further than the black windows and exterior doors that mirror the dark imperfections found in the reclaimed planks. Meanwhile, the brightness of the Reclaimed Oak plays perfectly off the interior doors and trim. The continuity of design is completed by cedar soffits that allow the eye to move seamlessly from inside to the wooded outdoors. Transitions – such as, from the bedroom wing to the main living space – are another recurring design theme. Kayne used low-to-high ceiling heights to create a sense of intimacy in the private spaces, which unfolds to a grand open area appropriate for entertaining.
Offset by intricately woven wall paneling, the simplicity of the floating, cantilevered staircase offers yet another juxtaposition. A central wine wall and use of stone slabs continue the theme. Experienced as a whole, the home cohesivley fulfills its vision, creating spaces that inspire, energize, and also create calm. Nothing contradictory about it.
