Winning details: For the glamorous 2012 Home of the Year, architect Charles Cunniffe and interior designers Andrew Sheinman and Francis Nicdao created a mix of modern and “mountain” by combining clean lines with spare natural materials. “We wanted to keep the house very calm and relaxing, so we didn’t use a lot of color,” Sheinman says. “The unity of surfaces creates an air of luxury.”

The designers took cues from the home’s architecture when selecting the color palette, which ranges from creamy beiges to chocolates browns. They highlighted the custom furnishings, like this large sectional couch, by choosing solid fabrics within the purposefully limited color palette. “We were very focused on the form of each piece, and solid colors bring out the shapes,” Sheinman says.
