While Chris' bedroom walls are covered in a pinstripe wool menswear suit fabric, the juxtaposition of a white resin moose head against the tailored walls creates a light-hearted element of surprise.

Since dark-colored accessories could easily get lost in the navy blue tone of the pinstriped wall covering, bulky ultra-white vases were grouped together to create a strong contrast.
Perched on the large kitchen island, a vintage vase juxtaposes against the metallic shell trays. Pendant lights illuminate the space, while exposed beams create a rustic environment in the farmhouse kitchen.
