The entryway of the specific Winter Park, Fla. home presented a conundrum for designer Shari Misturak of In Studio & Co.. Interiors. The 22-foot entryway was painted ceramic tile flooring on a beige, and left the homeowner feeling chilly. The request? This Misturak warm up the area while avoiding any strong colors.

Misturak went beyond a simple coat of paint. Together with the customer’s full acceptance, she concluded her eyesight of an abstract cityscape-themed architectural wall installation. “I wished to imply a town skyline, but with a few random flat pieces so it was not such a literal interpretation,” she says. Without introducing extreme colors the wood tones add the necessary warmth.
With the support of Adam Lehman of Greendarner Woodworks, the walnut panels have been built as boxes and secured to studs throughout the drywall. The boxes were created to have different depths and stains, and lighting has been added to create added visual interest.
The wall comes alive at night, when the lights are gently dimmed and the rich walnut beams. “My aim would be to get the wall be more of a work of art in relation to a simple wall therapy,” Misturak says. “It is definitely one of my favourite installations up to now.”
