This Space, This Way:

Designer Leslie Curtis chose a neutral palette for this open living and dining space to accommodate the homeowners’ art collection and complement the beautiful surrounding views of the water and forest.

“The art and accessories can easily be changed out, allowing flexibility for another look down the road,” Curtis explains. “A neutral backdrop provides a great background for splashes of vivid color and a variety of artwork.”

Signature Style:

“My design philosophy is based on simplicity and grace, and it is always influenced in a multitude of ways by my clients. My goal is to always remain open to the clients’ wishes and how they want to live in and use their homes.”  

Trick of the Trade:

“I like to leave room for movement for the homeowners to experiment and make changes if they wish to.”
