This house was designed to meet the clients goals of a house that straddles the worlds of both traditional and modern design in terms of both style as well as separation of living spaces. Aged accessories surround the master bed with softly embroidered pillows.
Pops of yellow in the form of books and abstract art bring warmth and color to this dining and living space. A glass coffee table doesn't compete with the wood buffet and dining table, virtually disappearing underneath stacks of books.
A quaint corner sitting area behind the sofa is illuminated by the open window directly behind. Instead of leaving the space naked and functionless, putting a chair and some simple art on the wall lends some interest.
Glass panels on the staircases blend in seamlessly, becoming nearly invisible, and look less bulky than traditional railing. White walls and a white ceiling, as well as floor-to-ceiling windows, keep the room feeling airy and bright despite the bookshelf wall's hulking presence.
This rustic farmhouse pool was placed in a more functional and aesthetically appropriate location, and raised twelve feet to maintain the sequential experience throughout the property. Built-in planters and potted arrangements were added as a buffer to soften the elevated height difference.
A two-toned gray rug defines the seating area in this modern living room designed for entertaining. Walls of windows bring in loads of natural light and emphasize the home’s modern architecture. Furniture includes versatile glass-topped tables that add to the space’s openness.
Pale colors and midcentury modern furnishings turn this open, airy space into an inviting spot to gather with friends. An accent color and built-in storage make the fireplace wall a focal point, and a large rug anchors the seating area and grounds the space. White draperies blend in with the walls, emphasizing the outdoor view.
This home was designed to straddle the worlds of both traditional and modern design in terms of both style as well as separation. While this house is detached, and has front and rear yards, it is also influenced by older homes with carriage houses in front.
