It is always a challenge to decorate a big house with lots of open space. Wide, open spaces can tempt you to go for larger furnishings. The key is to balance the furniture so that it still gives an effect of spaciousness. This beautiful modern and minimalist decor style home interior in West Lake Hills, Texas is completed by Scheer & Co. – Interior Design is one such challenge. This project is the idea of Scheer & Co. and beautifully captured by Buff Strickland. The designers have opted to retain the simple theme of black and white throughout the house. The only color comes from the bold dark blue wallpaper used to contrast the antique gold framed mirror above the sink.
An open shelf added to the alcove in the entry utilizes the wasted space creatively. Colorful rugs and beautiful paintings add color to the otherwise white and black living room. The colorful bedrooms have a surprisingly cheerful and cozy feel. Properly furnished bathrooms also adhere to the same plain white theme. The office and dining room reflect the eclectic taste of the owners. There is a shared kitchen and dining room. Windows have white curtains and shades to provide privacy but still let in some natural light. Furthermore, some interesting lamps and other pieces of wall decor add elegance to the surroundings.
