Mirror doors create an elegant armoire exterior to match the sophisticated transitional style of this bedroom. Matching armoires frame a gray and white dresser complimentary to the cool-tone gray walls. A gray toned hardwood floor fits beautifully with the color scheme.
A turquoise bed frame with strong blue notes is a fun and bold compliment to the green shade of the decorative armoire. A multicolor bed comforter and multicolor rug add an array of vivid color to further brighten the room. Sheer white curtains are finished with coral tassels matching the coral throw pillows topping the bed.
A bright blue and turquoise rug adds a colorful accent to this home office and compliments the pastel blue walls. An industrial desk features metal panels. Black stools match the black desk framing and metal pendant lights. A mix of black drawers, natural wood cabinets and a contemporary armoire supply plenty of storage for an organized finish.
Kids and adults alike can enjoy time in this neutral cottage sitting room. Storage for toys and games is ample in the dark wood armoire. Bead board walls, a rattan sofa with washable cushions, hardwoods and chipped furniture make the space a durable playroom for kids but stylistically mature for adults since it has to serve dual purposes.
This open entry features a truly eclectic mix of furnishings — a large German armoire pairs with deep red Oriental rugs, a transitional mirror, a vintage marble fireplace surround and a roll-arm chaise in a textured yellow fabric. To complete the room, a modern white chair is paired with a classic roll-front desk for a striking juxtaposition of styles.
This Mediterranean kitchen features plenty of built-in modern conveniences. A six-foot-long tile backsplash along the wall slides open to reveal hidden appliances, including a can opener, toaster and coffeemaker. A built-in granite-topped desk acts as a working space with a built-in wine rack below. Plus, a third armoire doubles as storage for fine china and dishware.
Interesting and uniquely placed square windows create a striking backdrop for this master bedroom. White walls and lofty ceilings allow light from the windows to rise and expand; matching lamps and overhead recessed lighting add to the brightness of the space. The dresser, armoire, bed and floors are all crafted from similar wood, bringing a sense of symmetry into the room.
Free up garage space for your car and create a catchall closet in the house. Use any hall closet, empty pantry or old computer armoire to mount wall shelves and hang hooks. Store pet food and accessories, cleaning supplies and a large container to “catch all.” Then, shut the door on clutter.
Keeping a neutral palette gives this bedroom design an air of sophistication and victorian class. The wall hangings behind the bed were displayed at the same elevation as the armoire; window treatments to the ceiling were used at the same height to reduce the skyscraper effect. The bed linens and tufted headboard add pleasing texture and depth to the design.
This kitchen was designed for efficient cooking, and it looks fabulously French doing it. Designed to evoke the French Country style, its 10-foot ceilings, emblematic arches and intricate woodwork would have made Louis XIV proud. A decorative armoire, topped with iron pieces imported from Italy, hides the refrigerator, and a two-tiered Madura Gold granite island features a wet bar and two integrated white ovens. The island also features a raised seating area perfect for gatherings.
Cabinets, cabinets, cabinets! This well-lit, warm bathroom has an abundance of cabinets in which the family can store their belongings. Each side of the room has a built-in armoire, eliminating the need for extra closets; the vanity provides a place for the family to store their toiletries, and the cabinets lining the exterior walls provide extra storage for linens and sundries, giving these homeowners all the storage space they could need in a bathroom.
TaLaya and Kerrick found their 1500 square foot home to be a storage challenge. This living room features one of TaLaya’s most creative solutions: a large wooden armoire. Woven cane gives the piece a handmade look that is beautifully complemented by the other woven elements in the space. Of particular interest is the patterned basket that ties together the colors of the rug and pillows in the room. The brass stool and accessories deepen the layers of metallic color in the space.
The main house of the building, sitting directly in the middle of the guest rooms, is a communal space where guests come to check in, eat and relax outside of their rooms. Just in through the front door, the space begins with this beautiful dining room. The forest-feel comes immediately through in this space with its color palette of warm browns and greens. The extendable table, which seats as many as 10 guests, is flanked by the hidden star of the show: an exquisite black armoire that accents the deep green of the wall, while the grain of the wood adds pattern and texture to the room.
Although this open-plan kitchen and dining area actually is in a loft — in a converted bag factory in Nashville — the principles designer Jason Arnold followed will work in any setting. He says: “The kitchen is opposite the living area, in a large, open space that automatically lends itself to entertaining and family living. We painted the walls, trim, and cabinets the same soft grey to make the spaces feel as one. Because it is essentially a large room with a kitchen at one end, I wanted the kitchen to blend seamlessly into the space which is why there are no upper cabinets and instead, there is a large pantry armoire to the right. The dining table acts as the visual separation from kitchen to living.”
