BEAUTY: Interior--R Brant Design
I love the interior design for this home in Santa Fe by designer Brant McFarlain for his company R Brant Design. What strikes me most about this exquisite interior is that it avoids all the usual, obvious Santa Fe clichés. While the structure itself remains a product of Santa Fe (and I love that the ceiling retains its timber logs) the clean-lined furnishings are modern. Yet the simplicity and pale, bleached color palette mirror the sand and desert outside. The textural adobe walls/ fireplaces and very subtle Navajo rugs harken to Native cultures in the area. And the bathroom is practically a recreation of an O' Keefe painting without being kitschy. Just lovely work and a lovely space.
