It’s winter in the Midwest, and we’re spending more time inside, trying to stay warm. With the thoughtful selection of colors, materials, and textures, rooms themselves can often convey a sense of warmth. In the rooms below by Carlo Scarpa, bold red emphasizes the role of the fireplace, while gold and rust hues are complimented by green, also accentuating the warm wood tones.
