A wide variety of materials in an interior is essential. They gain strength and beauty through their contrast and they are empowered by those juxtapositions. Never forgetting the crucial light through the course of the day makes them show us their beauty. Their temperature and texture will define an interior and make it more important, or warmer, or more austere, or more welcoming.
It is my preference to use noble and natural materials in my projects, such as stone, wood, glass, iron, ceramic or cotton, silk, or linen.
