Episode 08 - The Straight '80s House - Magnolia Market | The Bufton family has a clean, traditional style, and the home they purchased matched up with that perfectly — other than the fact that I don’t think it had seen a single update since it was built. It was already beautiful and had a lot of curb appeal, but on the inside this home was dated and the floor plan was awkward. It focused on formal spaces the family didn’t need, and closed the kitchen off from the rest of the house.
In Western culture, black is often a representation of death; it is a colour of mourning, worn to funerals to commemorate and universalise loss. This means that, in some contexts, black within design can represent sadness or respect. In Far Eastern cultures, such as in the customs of China, black is a colour of stability and perseverance, representing the son that will continue a family's bloodline. In Middle Eastern culture, black is even seen as a colour that represents rebirth.
