Just like in fashion, colors, textures, and proportions should be considered, especially when combining like-colors and like-materials. We want to avoid the "tried but failed" look, like wearing denim on denim.
In this Portland bedroom addition (still under construction), we carefully chose a hemlock ceiling, douglas fir window, and cork floor in finishes that work well together.
The crowning touch is the custom-blended white paint color the owners chose. Very nice.
The room is warm yet neutral, ready to serve as a backdrop for their life ahead.
