Across the courtyard from this historic, Los Feliz home is a newly constructed, two-story building that houses the family's garage and library. The building is protected from the sun by a sunshade that lets in just the right amount of light.
Usher an heirloom into the 21st century by turning it into a vanity. The wash basin belonged to the homeowner’s parents, so New River Building Co. fitted it with a vessel sink to turn it into a wash station flowing with character.
Take a close look at this toe kick. An arched design makes the vanity look furniture-esque, which allowed Austin Lineberry of New River Building Co. to tighten the width and reduce the cost of the vanity and countertop.
As rough-hewn and industrial as some loft spaces can be, there’s still ample opportunity to introduce spaces rich in refined style, as designer Hannah Crowell did in this eclectic dining room. “This was a new build that I wanted to give depth and character, so I chose a charcoal grey that pulled a slight bit of purple. I wanted to mix modern pieces (the Wegner chairs) with a farm table and Bryan Nash Gill prints. The Patterson Flynn and Martin rug was custom and took us 6 months to make but it pulled everything together perfectly.”
Patience and timing can pay off when trying to redo a kitchen and also stick to a budget. Elizabeth Lineberry with New River Building Co. in metro Atlanta found round glass pendants priced at two for $289, with 20 percent off at a modern home decor and furniture store. The simple glass fixtures add subtle visual curves and don’t obscure the shiplap walls and rustic wood vent hood.
A small countertop in a guest bathroom is an opportunity to use remnant pieces, achieving high style with huge savings. Austin Lineberry, owner of New River Building Co., did just that to save money per square foot on this granite counter. The gorgeous gray tile complements the counter and looks more expensive than it was, because it was stock glass tile from a home improvement store.
The vent hood is a prime spot for a flash of farmhouse cool. This vent hood design was based on the short scraps and random pieces of wood saved by the builder. “Don’t throw away the short pieces of wood. You can reimagine and reuse them in some way,” says Austin Lineberry of New River Building Co. in metro Atlanta.
Instead of going overboard on a bright island color that you may question later, a vibrant trio of bar stools can give you the shot of color you desire. These stools were less than $40 each at a home decor store. New River Building Co. in metro Atlanta used just one bank of cabinets for the island, providing a deep space for seating.
Shiplap is a sought-after look these days, but one place to save is in the materials you use. Unprimed spruce is one of the cheapest options, says Austin Lineberry of New River Building Co., who found it at less than 90 cents per linear foot for this home project. Plus, he used shiplap instead of a tile backsplash around the cabinets, for a consistent look and cost-effective option.
The open living room right when you walk in instantly catches your eye, with a navy velvet demilune perfectly placed to do just that. The room was kept light and neutral and brought in color through furniture, pillows, rugs, and accent pieces.
Placing velvet on a settee that is already an interesting shape really made the piece pop and instantly catches the eye. Mixing wood tones and textures in a subtle way helped to add variety a bring a fancy yet casual atmosphere.
This home is located in Newport Heights,and has a coastal design but with a Modern Farmhouse twist. Keeping the walls white keeps things bright, clean and coastal and lets the furnishings do the talking.
