Neutral is far from boring in this formal dining room design by William C Johnson. Beautiful dark hardwood complements the traditional buffet. Additional traditional elements include the crystal chandelier and dramatic curtains. Neutral, upholstered dining chairs and a large piece of art on the wall bring contemporary flair to the room.
With its towering ceiling and tall stucco fireplace, this formal living room makes a grand statement. Sets of French sitting chairs with wooden arms and English roll arm loveseats create a cozy space for conversation.
A more formal space to gather, this living room offers a stylish place for guests to sit and relax with drinks before dinner (or drinks after dinner, whichever you prefer). The chandelier suspended above adds another level of elegance to the design.
A formal terrace steps down to an architectural swimming pool surrounded by a lush green lawn. The pool coping material matches the stone used in the balustrade and the pavers on the terrace, creating a harmonious garden design.
The master bedroom has a refined style. "This is much more formal than any other room in the house, but the bold color makes it a little more fun and not really stuffy," says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
This small dining area was centered around showing off the beautiful crystal and china collection. The glass table and china cabinet make the space feel elegant and the metallic backing of the chairs gives the room some extra sparkle.
This formal garden with a two-story pavilion for entertaining is part of an extensive building and landscaping project by Cruickshank Remodeling. The homeowners had recently purchased the adjacent property which contained a mid century ranch house. After demolishing the structure, the yard was then graded and reconfigured into an upper and lower lawn and garden areas, taking advantage of the elevation change in the lot. The design goal was the creation of various entertainment spaces that can be viewed in our before and after visual tour.
