Can’t reach the items you’ve stored in your upper kitchen cabinets? A pull-down shelf is the perfect solution; in this space, it makes coffee and tea supplies easily accessible.

Gray and white hexagonal tiles fit together to create a full-wall backsplash in this retro inspired kitchen design.

The Longs chipped off the old brick façade of the 1970s fireplace and designed a layered mantel with echoes of midcentury modern master architect Carlo Scarpa.

Rollins' highly aesthetic potager is conveniently located right outside her kitchen door for quick and easy access to her edibles. She grows a variety of heirloom vegetables and fruit and herbs, but is as focused on design here as in every other aspect of her Atlanta garden. "In a busy world, there is something therapeutic about digging in the dirt," says Rollins. And it's a democratic pursuit too. "People can't decorate on their own, but people can garden. It's so accessible."
Because this laundry area sits between a master bedroom and an art studio, the design team at Crystal Kitchen Center wanted to make it accessible and functional for both purposes. The stained-glass window, backlit by a skylight, serves as an art piece and makes the room feel more expansive. The room is small, so a stackable washer and dryer help to conserve square footage. A staircase bump-out creates a spot for laundry baskets as well as a hanging rod, and a shelf over the sink acts as a handy supply station.
