This modern guest bedroom uses gray and white as the foundation on which to layer bright pops of color and mixed textures. The pale neutral palette also allows for the mixing of bold patterns in the rug and wallpaper.
Modern Kitchen With Colorful Reclaimed Wood Island
To give a California ranch-style home a fresh, modern twist, designer Kristianne Watts used a mix of materials in the kitchen. “On the island we used reclaimed boat wood from Indonesia. With the original paint still on each plank, it brings an authentic feel to the space,” she says. “The raised bar is Portland cement, which can be broken and recycled. The countertops are a quartz from Silestone/Cosentino. The custom cabinetry on the perimeter is an environmentally friendly wood veneer, FSC-certified Shinnoki pre-finished wood panels in Midnight Ash.”
Built-in furnishings like the bed and nightstands maintain a small footprint in this not-so-big condo bedroom. A gray-and-white color scheme and floor-to-ceiling windows open up the space and make it feel light as air.
Designer Kerrie Kelly updated this living space with a club-like look using color, texture and modern furnishings. The sitting area, created with four matching accent chairs in yellow and a center coffee table in wood, invites family and guests to gather for good conversation or perhaps a night of games. The cool gray tones of the tray ceiling, industrial light fixtures and whitewashed brick add dimension and contrast against the sleek furnishings.
Origionally, the owners of this modern California home opted for a monochromatic grey facade. However, to show their personality and accent the double canted roof, they decided to add a pop of yellow at the front and sides. Board form concrete comprises the base of the structure, which is left exposed rather than painted.
