Stuart Mast's Profile
|Display Name:||Stuart Mast|
Thanks, everyone, for your comments. Let me begin by suggesting that those who feel the apartment looks cold should check out the photos on our architect's website, porterfanna.com. Go to Work and then Eastern Parkway Apartment Renovation. You'll see some different artwork on the walls, which you may find impacts the cold feeling, or maybe not -- the design definitely draws on a specific aesthetic. I personally find the aesthetic very calming and soothing. The palette also supports subtle things which might be overwhelmed or overlooked if there were starker colors or textures -- these include the feeling of the fireslate countertop, the designs created by oil markings on the countertop from everyday use, the texture of the aluminum counter stools, the sanded aluminum baseboard radiator covers, the depth and warmth of the grey floors, the softness of the light grey walls, the sheen of the silk grey curtain in the bedroom, the glow of light through the bathroom door and the corresponding panel in the bedroom wall, the swirling etchings of steel wool in the blackened steel of the entrance, etc. I wonder if the richness of these subtle variations might be missed if there were a lot more bold colors and textures in the rooms.
