Titled - Ladder to Heaven
This is a living room in a multifamily townhouse, designed for a young couple with a pre-school aged daughter. What captured my imagination on entering the space was the way the design promoted the appreciation of the light entering the space from the two story windows along the south wall. My second impression was how well the designer directed the energy of the design to lead the eye and draw attention into and around the space and up to the paper lanterns.
The designer told me the ladder to heaven concept was a principle of feng shui and was the intent of this aspect of the design. The depth of her design is evident in the quality of the finished work.
I shot this image with available light because I didn’t want compromise the integrity of the design with an unnatural element.
