Nicole Curtis removed the old carpet to reveal beautiful original pine floors. The refinished floors plus new furnishings work together to make the living and dining rooms comfortable, functional and stylish.
This glamorous white and pink master bedroom features a sitting area with soft upholstered side chairs in white and contemporary loveseat in pink, a modern coffee table, sophisticated crystal chandelier, white lacquered cube table, and pink ceiling trim.
As if this outdoor space weren't alluring enough, that flagstone walkway actually crosses over a waterfall and koi pond. At night, landscape lights switch on and transform both features into prominent focal points.
Floral wallpaper creates an accent wall amidst the powder blue walls and ceiling. The blue is echoed in the plush, sophisticated bed linens decorating the upholstered bed frame. A pair of white arm chairs fills some of the open hardwood floor space and creates a relaxing sitting area.
This light and bright hall boasts an all-over white palette with touches of color, like a bold blue runner and decorative wall hanging. Recessed lighting pairs with natural light to illuminate the space.
To give the open space just off the entry a purpose, yet keep the center of the area open for traffic flow in and out of this apartment, two pairs of ready-made bookshelves purchased from an office supply store were placed back-to-back to act as room dividers. On one side, a private office is separated from the formal dining space and family room on the other side. The apartment's walls were painted peacock blue, which helps the walls recede so that accents of white and apple green stand out.
As the unit was new when they arrived, Leyden and Lazhar had little to do by way of renovation. Instead, what renovation has taken place over the years Leyden remembers as, “adding interior-architectural components that just didn’t exist.” Many of these additions were designed to address the homes bigger needs, storage being chief among them. Fortunately, the dining room architecture offered a perfect opportunity. “The niche created by the space between two existing wall-columns seemed an ideal place to design the bookshelves and display,” the designer remembers.
Both white drapes and bamboo shades provide adjustable light levels and privacy. Throw pillows, fiery orange walls and a multicolored rug add visual interest to a room anchored by a brown sectional sofa.
Two separate spaces were combined into this spacious two-person bathroom that incorporates only what is truly needed - a clutter-free, sophisticated and purposeful space. Dark wood vanities, marble countertops and a floor rug add weight to the white space. The dressing table mirror was suspended with chains over the window, creating privacy while still allowing natural light to filter in.
