The design challenge at this home was to cover all the windows, giving privacy and light control while keeping the nature-inspired design throughout. We used deep earthy neutrals and textures to compliment the rustic features of the home and coordinate with the owners existing furnishings. In the master bedroom we used a Modern Rustic York wallpaper made of cork with hints of metallic copper for a dramatic focal wall behind the bed. The wallpaper adds contrast, as well as additional texture to the customers’ existing dark-colored leather headboard. This subtle sparkle created by adding the wallpaper really was the frosting on the cake!

This look can be achieved using Benjamin Moore Aura Matte in color Spice Gold #1040. This warm color accents the natural beauty of the stone fireplace and wood floors.
