The designers showed off the architectural bones of this beautiful cathedral-like building by keeping furnishings simple and elegant. A clear floor on the upper level maintains the soaring feel of the space by letting occupants see all the way through the structure.
Round windows add architectural interest to this carriage house's exterior. The windows, which are set in curved walls, have their brick tipped out and pitched down to drain water. A beautiful cupola crowns the structure, adding height to its design.
The warm, inviting kitchen opens up to a pretty blue dining room, creating an easy flow through the main areas of the home. Beautiful architectural details, like the structured columns and room dividers, add to the Craftsman feel of space.
Multiple seating areas make maximum use of this open, yet private poolside cabana in New York. Traditional architectural details tie the structure to the main house nearby. The finished surfaces of the cabana are wrapped with Versatex, a weatherproof PVC material, to ensure that it stands up to the elements.
Bold floor-to-ceiling art adorns the wall to the side of this urban industrial open living space. Architectural elements such as exposed brick, beams and ductwork show the raw personality of the neutral space, while understated furnishings serve to highlight the open room's structure.
Lovely, sublime and elegant all describe this French-inspired home, with Mark Scott and Associates enhancing its charm with their compelling landscape design. Particularly, the small wrought gate that one must enter honors the architectural components of this design style. The address of this beautiful home may not lay in southeast France, but the look and heart of its structure and scenery surely takes one there!
All it takes to create an outdoor getaway is a comfortable chair or two. Here, designer Erin Benedict chose a pair of Adirondack chairs softened by large cushy pillows. And, note the pulled-back curtain to one side: If you have a place to hang a curtain rod or wire, an outdoor curtain adds softness and privacy. “Elegant black and gold striped drapes perfectly frame the Adirondack chairs, adding a contemporary element while complementing the timeless architectural details of the early 1920s structure,” Benedict says.
