Douglas Fir flooring, with it’s tree origins in the Pacific Northwest, can be an uncommon wood floor in the East. But in this new construction install, the owners salvaged the Douglas Fir joists of the former mid-century auto shop at the site. The bownish-orange tone of softwood species often call for some element at the opposite end of the color spectrum. Here, the design also layers the contrast of organic wood figure and color, with cast iron in a traditional radiator, painted blue black. The concise and elegant balance unfolds in the surrounding hallway with natural light and a wicker bulls head on the wall.
