Stone tiles in warm shades ground the southwestern kitchen and dining area, while exposed wood beams bring a rustic note to the space. The entire area is designed as an entertaining hub off the swimming pool and outdoor living space.
Off the outdoor living space is a complete kitchen and bar area with a dining spot, perfect for entertaining. The stone floor is chosen for a non-slip surface since family and friends will come in from the pool. Black countertops pairs create a striking contrast against the neutral stucco walls.
A black, gray and neutral geometric rug anchors this chic transitional dining room. Black furnishings add contrast, while a ceiling fan, small spotlights and sconces illuminate the space. White beadboard wainscoting completes the design.
To add a unique architectural element to the screened porch designed and built by Innovative Construction, metro Atlanta homeowner Jonathan Berger was inspired by a fan he saw on the HBO series, "Boardwalk Empire." He found the Duplo-Dinamico rotational ceiling fan by Matthews Fan Co., and chose the black finish because it looked more authentically retro and matched his home's exterior accent color.
The master bedroom was lacking in ambient light, so its existing ceiling fan was taken down and replaced with a wood and iron French chandelier. French chandeliers usually evoke a feeling of femininity, but due to its black painted finish, the chandelier used in this master bedroom takes on a more gender-neutral appearance. For modern flair, globe bulbs were used rather than standard flame bulbs.
