KLM interiors

Enlightened Mediterranean

Confronted with an empty nest, yet active in their children’s and grandchildren’s lives, this couple asked Kari to help them construct a simpler home for a less complicated lifestyle. Working with their existing Tuscan antiques, Kari incorporated a lighter color scheme with understated elegance. The interior needed to suit a wife with refined taste and a honed sense of style, yet present no concern when not in residence.

Belgian linen, flax, glazed linen, cotton, jute and sisal, in colors such as oatmeal, travertine, willow and glace blend effortlessly in the sun-drenched windows. Glass mosaic tiles, in colors such as Tahoe, aloe and lagoon, provide cool reflection in the warm Texas sun.
