Royal Blue Accents Create Sophistication in Dreamy Home Office

Refrigerator Concealed in Custom Armoire Casing Painted Muted Blue
A focal point in this kitchen featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, and a key part to its French Country design is the concealed refrigerator. The custom armoire casing is painted in a muted blue with curved, ceiling height molding that softens the look of the kitchen.
The farmhouse-inspired kitchen has a large irregular-shaped island with barstool seating at one end. Rustic stone, the same used on the house's exterior, creates a beautiful focal wall around the wood-fire oven.
Warm neutral paint reflects natural light let in through frosted privacy windows in this luxurious master bathroom. Large mirrors over the custom vanity and makeup table also reflect light, making the space feel large and bright.
New Cabinets and Countertop in French Country Kitchen
In this renovated Louisiana kitchen featured on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, the curved countertop has been removed to provide the space with easy access to the family room. To create a more elegant space, old, outdated cabinets were replaced with bright white cabinets with a crown molding and a single raised panel for a more sophisticated look.
Ceiling beams made from reclaimed wood and a stone-framed door hint at French chateau style. An island with over-sized turned legs visually grounds the large room while cobblestone framing around the door add a classic cottage-style touch to the space.
Above a large, undermount sink, designers John and Anthony installed floating glass shelves to add storage and display space without interrupting the design of the kitchen. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
The elegant dining room opens up through French doors to an outdoor door dining area with beautiful views of the La Jolla, Calif., coast. Exposed wood ceiling beams and an Old World-style chandelier bring a touch of rustic charm to the space, while bookshelves flanking the doors house the homeowners' collection of cookbooks.
In this sitting area, a mix of patterns in neutral colors give dimension and interest to the space without being overwhelming. A simple iron and glass coffee table provides a blank canvas for the books and accessories on top.
New Furniture and Coffered Ceilings in Elegant French Country Dining Room
New furniture and coffered ceilings transform this space into an elegant formal dining room whose design complements the French Country kitchen. The large window lets in plenty of light to illuminate the space and highlight the design, as seen on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
Natural light pours in from the windows in this French Country-inspired seating area.
