Home in Highlands, NC

Be sure to visit my portfolio at www.toddrichesininteriors.com to view four newly completed projects. One of these projects is a home I did in Highlands, N.C. The owners wanted to use turquoise and orange, an unusual color scheme for a home in the mountains. They brought me a photograph of a contemporary painting as the inspiration piece. Although they didn’t want to use the painting, they did want to use the colors. I enjoyed the challenge of trying to figure out how to create rustic sophistication with the use of fresh colors and was glad they didn’t opt to use the motifs of twigs, antlers and ferns so popular in mountain homes. We chose to use American antiques and let the color scheme dictate the choice of fabrics. I call the result the “New Highlands” look. It is fresh, comfortable and inviting.
