The progression of the rooms across the back of the house is viewed from the living room through the dining room and into the breakfast room at the rear. The outstanding millwork and plasterwork are accented with green tones and lavish wallpaper.
One of the most effective ways to highlight custom or historic millwork, such as trim or ceiling beams, is with contrasting white paint. To accentuate the original millwork in this 1920s bungalow, its walls feature muted shades of blue while its trim is a bright shade of ultra white.
Traditional millwork frames a bathroom that's a study in minimalism, with a frameless mirror and a floating vanity that fades into the walls. The monochromatic color scheme makes the two different styles work in harmony.
This room is both a library and a dining room. It features a built-in bookcase with custom millwork, a buffet and niche for art. The look is modern with touches of Asian influence. The dining chairs are also custom and feature Lee Jofa linen velvet with brass nailheads on the back that complement the modern fixture above the table. The window-side table is the final custom piece with a gray marble top and steel base.
Crisp, white cabinetry paired with black soapstone and Calcutta marble sets the tone for this elegant, multi-functional kitchen and living area. The space is equipped with a baking center, banquette seating and glass cabinets wrapping around a corner to further defining the space. The style and millwork of the home were continued in the columns flanking the apron sink and featured detailing on the built-in snack bar.
