Downsizing doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style or comfort. When a couple purchased this 1994-era townhome that had never been updated, they hired Rita Larson to give it a contemporary new look. The homeowners contributed Danish modern furnishings and an appreciation for minimalist Scandinavian design, but let Larson work her magic, basically giving her a blank slate. “We enhanced every existing architectural detail in the home, and added beams, stone walls, and other timeless textures and finishes,” Larson comments. Essentially, all that remained from the original home was the existing hardwood floor in one of the rooms.
