“Hudson began with a vision of creating a space that was moody and modern, with the goal of achieving a definite “feeling” upon all those who enter. Having seen the typical palette with a blend of all the beautiful shades of white, we wanted to take it a step darker, a less sterile look, and a bit more moody.
The project would be an experiment in using a nearly-monochromatic color palette, with a mix of sheens, patterns, and textures that would evolve into a neutral backdrop, allowing the future owner to add life and color to the space with their own belongings and character. At initial glance, the “nearly-monochromatic” palette is apparent and creates a space for eyes to slowly wander and notice varying shades of color and texture.
The goal was to avoid stark contrasts and high saturations (with the exception of the accent that is consistent throughout- matte black). The result is a space that is filled with many different shades and textures that were each carefully chosen to speak to each other, and all be of complement, without any single item taking center stage.
As you approach the home from the street, large two-story commercial glass is framed by aged copper panels that have started to show subtle shades of greens and blues.
Through the glass you see three 6-foot tall Pablo Design pendants suspended between the first and second floor. Upon entering the home, a large tile installation in the foyer features oversized tiles- 3’ x 6’. The custom folded metal stairs are on display in the center of the home, with a metal mesh guard rail spiraling through the stairwell from the basement up to the third floor.
Engineered wood floors in white oak are stained in a light grey matte finish with a slight shimmer that is revealed subtly under the lights. Charcoal stained birch doors are accented with black hardware. Matte black plumbing and electrical fixtures are on display as a departure from the typical silver finishes.
As you travel through the home, new spaces are revealed and different experiences are created as light travels throughout the day casting different shadows and revealing new colors, creating connections between the architecture and those who inhabit it.”
