A well decorated home is one unified whole with rooms that blend and relate to each other like members of a family. The goal of any room arrangement in your house is a simple grouping of furniture pieces that work toward its purpose, dining, sleeping, working, or relaxing. Create easy access through your rooms with 3-ft-wide passages that suggest where you want traffic to flow. Use entry furnishings constant with the rest of your home.
When you are dealing with furniture the whole collection must take priority over individual pieces. It is easy to fall under the enchantment of an antique piece of furniture, but you have to consider how it will fit in with everything else. Plus, you have to ask whether it meets your needs. Everybody loves to buy new things, but before bring in new furniture you must figure out whether to take advantage of what you already have.
This beautiful, modern mountain house designed by John Maniscalco Architecture is called Sugar Bowl residence (situated in the old village at Sugar Bowl, in Norden, California). The cedar-clad house sits on top of a concrete plinth so that the home rises above the winter snow threshold. The warm wooden volume contains the sleeping areas, boot room, and service spaces, with expansive views toward the snow and pine tree-covered landscape.
Abundant wooden elements -floors, ceilings, staircases, tables, chairs - help to create warmth inside the home to contrast the stark cold climate and views of the snowy landscape. All of the color of the house is natural and pure from the color of the wood.
