Keep your arts and crafts supplies within arm’s reach and neatly displayed by arranging them on a tiered cake stand. Dedicate the lower stand to glass jars for housing buttons, tacks and other embellishments which get lost easily. Keep spools of ribbon or thread in the center and then use the top tier for things you’ll need easy access to such as pens and paints.
When choosing outdoor furnishings, “I wanted to make sure it was something that actually gels with bungalow architecture,” explains interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn, “which is arts and crafts and laid back.”
The addition of this staircase in the dining room adds access to the master suite of this renovated 1920s bungalow. The space under the staircase makes a perfect spot for a built-in closet, while the home's original window provides nice, natural light to the dining area.
Arts and Crafts details on the stairway and in the lighting blend beautifully with mission-style furnishings in this contemporary great room. Large rugs create distinct zones for living and dining, and graphic pattern and bold use of color give the space a contemporary feel.
Mid-century-inspired furniture combines with the warm wood trim of this dining room to create an updated space that serves the needs of a young, active family. A dropped lampshade-style light fixture offers ample task lighting for dining. The mid-century wire mesh chairs are made more comfortable with leather seat and back cushions.
Painted Windsor chairs and a contemporary take on a wagon wheel chandelier set off the warm wood trim in the dining room of this updated Craftsman home. A low, Mid Century-inspired sideboard complements the black-painted chairs. The design team used large-scale furniture and lighting to offset the home's high ceilings and bring the spaces down to a more comfortable level.
The fireplace and cabinetry were custom designed and built to match the beautiful Arts and Crafts detailing throughout the home. The owner specifically selected handmade tiles from Carreaux du Nord for the fireplace surround.
