Rather than fill the hall with decor, designer Lauren Rubin kept the space minimal and allowed the round chandelier to be the star. When set against the room's white walls, the piece positively shines.
A checked pattern over the buffet piece features alternating textures beneath ornamental metallic knobs. A pair of table lamps match the brass of the knobs, and the shape of the base blends the mediterranean influence of the display with the more contemporary surroundings. Framed art fills the wall space while a bubble contemporary light fixture finishes out the design with a modern flair.
A long hallway features myriad windows to let in light and open this rustic-modern retreat to its sweeping view of the Wyoming landscape. Meanwhile, wood walls and ceiling beams give a nod to the home's cabin decor. Floor timbers are place on the diagonal, visually expanding the space.
Deliberate choices were made when choosing the modern art to keep this space minimal and bright while adding a touch of decor. The red and green from the plant life pop against the surrounding white walls. Dark hardwood flooring adds a warm contrast and grounds the light, airy design.
Wood steps match the hardwood flooring on this modern staircase. Glass panels supporting the steel railing brings an air of openness. White walls provide a clean backdrop for the warm wood tones and simple, yet stylish hallway decor including red flowers and a triangular table.
In the hallway leading to the bedroom, even more art awaits. Much like the map of Paris in the kitchen, large metallic lanterns are mementos from the couple’s wedding. Tanika kept the Moroccan pieces for use in the home, pairing them with a 200-year old, hand-painted Chinese chest. The oversized Scrabble pieces set above, also began as part of the wedding decor, spelling out the couple’s initials. The combination of modern metallics with vintage global wares is a hallmark of Tanika’s style and one of the secrets to her beautiful home.
