Bright White Entryway is Both Contemporary and Natural
Rustic meets contemporary in the glass and wood doors that lead into the living area. Gorgeous tall houseplants in modern white planters bring life to the entryway, while a hardwood inset adds warmth to the gray-and-white tiled floor.
The beautifully crafted ﬂoating walnut wall tiles evoke blooming ﬂowers throughout the entryway and stairs. To add a statement-making touch, the panels are backlit. Plus, a concealed door leads to to the master bath. With the door shut the wall appears seamless, but when opened it provides access to the magniﬁcent lotus mosaic shower.
Kelly and Co. Design created a contemporary-style bar in this renovated barn entertainment space without losing the ambiance of its rustic surroundings. A black granite countertop and zinc bar top sit atop wood cabinets and stainless steel fixtures. LED backlighting, which can be changed according to mood, showcases the bar selections. The bar features a keg tap, a wine fridge, a dishwasher, a refrigerator, and ample storage for glassware and other serving pieces.
The original plain white metal staircase is completely redesigned by encasing them in the same walnut used for the feature wall. Floor-to-ceiling copper poles are used an unexpected handrail, and an indoor swing hangs at the base of the stairwell for a playful touch.
The stairs that ascend to the catwalk were designed to resemble the main staircase of a prominent building where the homeowner received his undergraduate degree. The elegant metal staircase looks beautiful against the lovely brick floors.
Hammered copper forms the detailing in this custom wood bar, which is surrounded by plush, gray tufted chairs. The dark wood tones help ground the ethereal space, which is bathed in natural light from the long wall of steel-encased windows.
Bar & Lounge: Stunning European Villa in Los Angeles, Calif.
Sophisticated and high class, the bar and lounge area is the perfect place to entertain adult guests. The beautiful craftsmanship of the wood walls and custom hardwood floor add a luxurious feel to the space.
Unfortunately, the condition of the original stairs was such that the stairs themselves could not be repaired, but the original configuration was kept intact and the original curved handrail was able to be salvaged. The new iron railing was "built around" the original banister.
This classic stairway features a crisp white railing topped with a chocolate brown handrail and matching brown steps, creating a high-contrast look. A rug in the foyer coordinates with the color palette, and a globe pendant light adds a touch of modern flair.
