“Everything in our home has a story, from the way we frame art by a friend to how we acquired the light fixture above the dining room table, it all has a personal story that goes with it.”
A bookshelf is outfitted with extra dividers to make room for the magazines, novels, and art objects.
An L-shaped bar and upper cabinets from IKEA define the kitchen. “It’s visually integrated with the other public spaces, making it comfortable to work, entertain, and cook in,” Erickson says.
Classic pieces from Herman Miller and Knoll mix in among other clean-lined, low-profile furniture from Room & Board and Blu Dot. Dark charcoal and crisp white walls (Valspar’s Dark Oasis and Ultra White) are the perfect backdrop for the couple’s eclectic collection of art and accessories.
In this jewel box of a powder room, bold floral wallpaper packs a huge punch. The "Dark Floral" paper, by Netherlands-based designer Ellie Cashman, is a sophisticated juxtaposition with the clean, crisp white subway tile and sink.
