Custom Banquette Gives Modern Kitchen an Eat-In Component
The owner wanted a place where his family could enjoy meals together, so designers added a custom banquette to give the kitchen an eat-in space, while the fun upholstery makes the space lively and casual. Although the main function of the banquette is to provide seating for the family, it serves the dual purpose of hiding the radiator in the home and was built to be easily taken apart and moved in case repairs need to be made.
The open floor plan of the kitchen, dining area and living room makes entertaining easy and effortless. The fireplace surround features cove lighting that highlights the pattern and texture. The window seat cleverly stores firewood so it's nearby, but doesn't clutter the space.
Modern Living Room With White Sofa and Large Window
This modern living room features a thick yet sleek white sofa. Wood-framed chairs sit on the opposite side of the slatted coffee table and geometric rug. A large window lets in natural light, making the white room even brighter and offering a scenic view. A black canvas adds a pop of contrast to the white walls.
From dreary and dated to calm and sophisticated, designers restored the neoclassical plaster work in the living room to reveal a luxurious, yet comfortable space. They removed the old fireplace that was dark and too heavy for the space and replaced it with a monolithic slab of real marble and a fully functioning fireplace that is light and inviting. The room’s lower ceiling lends the space an intimate feel that is enhanced by the absence of a television, putting the emphasis in this space on face-to-face family time.
Clothing in this modern, custom walk-in closet is organized by color for an added design punch. Built-in storage throughout the space organizes shoes, jewelry, hats, accessories and more. A center island offers additional convenience and storage.
High ceilings, clerestory windows and white walls create an airy sense of openness in this modern living room. A large sectional provides seating for a crowd, and wood-framed glass doors allow access onto the patio.
