Loving the work of Seattle-based architect, Bosworth Hoedemaker. I’m also a huge fan of white interiors (the perfect white, of course) combined with natural wood elements. Wood surfaces DO read as color. Most often that color reads in the range of black, brown or orange tones. Take a look at these interiors (all from Houzz) and note the restrained but highly effective use of window and door trim to punctuate white spaces. Perfection.
These window frames read “orange” and complete the color composition. Yum.
Lone “orange” window frame punctuates white plane
Gorgeous natural wood doors, frames and floors
A warm natural wood door advances forward in this long white hallway
A white barn-like dining space with bank of natural wood windows
Different space, same feel
More white surfaces warmed up with wood.
Beautiful entrance/hallway, integrating clean, white space with natural elements. The eye is drawn straight back to the wooded view outside.
Again, a smooth transition indoors to out. The window frames, floor and other textural elements provide all the color needed. Cozy.
Couldn’t resist this closing image- of Mr. Hoedemaker’s own house (and dog) via Seattle Times.
