Inspired by Art Deco architecture, Royal Oaks reimagines the classic Swiss shingle-style home as a modern family dwelling in the heart of the American South.
The home’s dark, curving facade mirrors the natural contour of the land, and a dramatic arched front entry opens to hewn white oak interiors, creating the illusion of walking into a sculpture. Inside the foyer, the artful pairing of historic and modern pieces, notably an 18th century Italian cabinet and abstract bronze bowl, adds layers of sophistication.
A soothing rhythm of light, dark and neutral tones create a comfortable setting for social gatherings and weekend experiences on the lake.
Refined millwork forms a rich, dimensional background with carved diagonals, diamonds and chevrons overlapping in ascending and descending patterns. The rhythmic, staccato decoration enhances and delineates the spaces.
