"I think that Yuill--with his innate sense of design--and Wabi Sabi--the Japanese art of imperfection--are a perfect partnership. My home, Capercaillie Vert, is a minimalistic vision showcasing incredibly beautiful wood -- a stunning balance."
We converted this space from what was once an after-thought into a bright, clean master bed and bathroom with warm wood textured floors and trim, and selected antique fixturing like the claw & ball foot tub and oversized pedestal sink. These pieces make a strong statement on an otherwise clean and understated palette.
We used architectural lighting to accentuate the richness of the wood and create great atmosphere. For instance, there's a light directly overhead the tub that illuminates only the area you need for reading when you are reclined in the bath. Note the pronounced old sawtooth marks on the floor, especially the ones below the tub.
