Blue Craftsman Bathroom With Penny Tile Floor and Hooks for Towels
Blue penny tile flooring brings a great texture to this contemporary blue and white bathroom. The split wall features white paneling at the bottom and a soft blue paint color on the top. Three mounted hooks are perfect towel storage next to the white, glass door cabinet.
From the moment you step in the front door, designer Kristina Wolf played up the home's dominant Craftsman features. White interior columns and wide molding stand out against the powdery blue walls in the foyer.
A large globe pendant hangs over the dining room table, a contemporary accent in a space otherwise brimming with craftsman character. Navy blue paint adorns the upper third of the room -- including the ceiling -- allowing the intricate woodwork to shine.
Ada's Technical Books & Cafe occuppies a remodeled home in the Capital Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The impetus for the project was to create the "book retailer of the future." Achieving this vision required an adaptive reuse design, an addition and a pioneering approach to the neighborhood bookstore. The challenge would be to convert a dilapidated single-story Craftsman into a refurbished mixed-use project. The owners were dedicated to creating a balance of history and modern sustainability, so architect Jeff Pelletier imagined the building like an aged book cover with crisp, clean pages on the inside. In order to connect the space with the street-scape, Pelletier added a raised front porch for cafe seating.
Whether you prune it or pull it, keeping dense, tall foliage away from the house shows off the Craftsman's distinct architectural features to full advantage. The paint colors are by BEHR: Shale Gray, Powdered Snow and Wooden Swing.
Gray-Blue Craftsman Home With Neutral Stone Walkway
This stunning craftsman home features a gray-blue stucco and neutral stone exterior. A blend of gray stones, neutral stone slabs and concrete make up the walkway that extends from the driveway to the lime green front door.
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.
In the fall of 2013, a single-story Craftsman was remodeled into a cafe and bookstore combo with a local, sustainable design that fosters community and commerce. The project attracted the attention of Historic Seattle and received the very high honor of their "Preserving Neighborhood Character Award" for transforming a humble house into an inviting community gathering place for a unique neighborhood business.
This family room feels so comfortable with a cushy sofa and armchairs. The Craftsman-style cabinetry provides lots of storage, both open and hidden. The warm wood finish is brightened by lots of windows and light blue walls.
