Modern City Apartment With Custom Spiral Staircase
This light and bright living room features a custom white spiral staircase at its center, complete with a metal railing and brown stairs. Several potted plants and trees throughout the space add a bit of natural decor, while plush gray armchairs with a matching ottoman provide a cozy place to relax.
This walkout basement had two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space. The 8-foot drop ceiling made the space feel confining, so the ceiling tiles were removed and the space feels much more open and airy with the newly exposed rafters with an attractive loft-like feel. After removing ugly redundant wiring from the entire ceilings, pipes, beams and walls were sprayed white.
Teal Playroom Features Kid's Artwork, Small Table & Stools
The sky's the limit in this kids' playroom with walls painted to look like mountains. A small table and stools provide a perfect spot for creations and games of all kinds, and the blue-patterned rug mimics the angular peaks and valleys on the walls.
Hallway in a Modern Home with Exposed Wood Beams on the Ceilings and Walls
This hallway space exhibits true artistry. The wood beams have an almost Craftsman-style feel, yet against the white walls and ceilings present as modern. Hardwood floors and trim echo the tones in the beams, creating a well-harmonized space.
Custom-dyed red leather flooring makes a striking statement in this all-white hallway. The sleek white walls make the perfect backdrop for displaying favorite pieces of art and little niches house contemporary sculptures.
Designer Justine Sterling transformed a low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial to create a studio. It’s a walkout basement with two windows providing decent light, but it was very ugly with exposed pipes, a horrible acoustic tile ceiling and old sticky vinyl flooring. At roughly 450 square feet, there was a good amount of space to create a project room for the children. The room is now a lively children's workspace.
Grand Upstairs Hallway With Sitting Area, Handsome Floors & Leather Chairs
Stunning wood flooring and recessed ceilings create strong geometric shapes giving the idea of edges and borders within the grand open floor plan of this upstairs hallway and sitting area. Square armchairs emphasize the geometry of the space while the leather upholstery echoes refinement and air of importance. A series of glass pendant lights form a chandelier of modern elegance.
In the sunroom, designers went for a classic blue and white palette mixed with natural linens, cotton canvases, materials that are durable and forgiving for this family's active lifestyle, and a sisal area rug to create a timeless, casual environment with an open, airy feel.
