To create separate storage for each person in this master bathroom, two top wall cabinets were added on each side of the double vanity with adjustable shelves and convenient outlets. In the center, base cabinet drawers offer storage for common items. Towel bars placed under each sink provide easy access with a shelf below for extra towels.
The rough-hewn walls and brick ceiling lend an old-world elegance to this sitting area off the wine cellar in this 11,400-square-foot California estate. Sleek glass doors and a chic bar cart bridge the old with the new and give a nod to the home's contemporary interior design. A lantern overhead fits the nature of the space.
Go on, slam-dunk your towels into Simple Human’s x-frame laundry hamper, it can take it. The hamper is made from heavy-gauge steel bars, and has a wide, non-skid base to keep it stable. It has handles so you can pick the whole thing up to take it to the washer, and politely folds flat for storage.
This home was designed by Rich Graves of Altius Design and Barb Cooke of Cooke Interiors Studios, and it features a generous floor plan with 3 levels. Inside, guests will find an open kitchen, dining space, living room, wine cellar, game room and wet bar. In other words? There's no lack of space to bring people together!
To minimize the presence of the stair in the hallway the designer eliminated the need for the outer stringer. Instead, they cantilevered the tread supports from a single stringer located adjacent to the wall. The treads themselves are sandblasted acrylic mounted to a pair of tapered steel angles. The tread design allows for maximum light to pass through to the space below. Glass infill panels create the guard at both the stair rail and surrounding guards. With the use of 2 layers of laminated glass no top rail was required at the guard locations. To support the glass, steel bar stanchions span between floors levels, adding an element of continuity to the various levels of the stacked stair. High levels of precision were required during the detailing and construction process to maintain absolute alignment between 3 levels as the stairway extends from upper bridge to the basement.
