Sometimes it seems as words should be mutually exclusive from one another and yet they are not. Take for example dark and light. Although opposite, there cannot be one without the other. Hot and cold is another example. One cannot fully appreciate the warm heat of the summer if he or she has never experiences the cold of a winter night. Opposites are just that, two different poles of a same interest closely intertwined as one is needed to fully understand the other. Case in point: the gorgeous L.A. remodel of Shannon Wollack, of Studio Life. Style, is both relaxed and yet luxe. At first glance, it might seem counterintuitive to think that luxury and comfort shall complement each other but then again, isn’t it pure luxury than to be able to enjoy daily comfort in one’s own home?
Soft and plush textures in the bedrooms and living areas meet the sharp & smooth edges of the marble surfaces of the kitchen and bathrooms. The luminous white walls of the main rooms of the home come in clear contrast to the moody dark walls and cabinets of the kitchen, the botanical wallpaper of the powder room and the peacock blue of the children’s room. Full of apparent contrasts, this home is a showcase of warmth and inviting comfort which is all the best.
