Craftsman architecture is notable for its practical design characteristics. The extended eaves and covered entry porch help reduce heat gain during the summer months when air conditioning requirements are highest.
This project included a full remodel and second-story addition to a single-story modern home built in 1959. Designer Jeff Troyer used a combination of stone, synthetic wood siding and stucco––all materials which satisfy the high-fire zone requirements in this California neighborhood.
The custom-made 72-inch zinc hood over the range top is the main focal point of this grand kitchen packed with chef-grade amenities. A backsplash of beige stone tiles are a handsome complement. Cabinets: Grabill Cabinetry; Backsplash: Ann Sacks natural stone tiles
Beige stone tile covers the walls and floors of this bathroom for a peaceful, spa-like feel. An all-glass shower enclosure and large frameless mirror makes the space appear bigger and more open. A dark wood floating vanity with his and hers sinks anchors the room.
The open layout created an inviting and spacious environment for a large living room and dining room. The overall color palette was kept neutral, emphasizing various tones including taupe, stone, beige and ivory. These colors were used on accent items including the silk wall covering, area rug and pillows.
Rows of large, uncovered windows lets natural light flood the high ceiling and open design of this stylish sitting space. Black and beige graphic rugs soften the gray stone floor and add eye catching pattern to the solid color base of the room. A contemporary chandelier hangs out over a sliding glass door that leads to a wood patio. A stylish leather chaise creates a spot to sit back and enjoy the airy room.
This laundry room is elegantly toned in neutral colors and tile backsplash. The expansive beige cabinetry provides plenty of storage space, while the beautiful stone countertops provide ample workspace.
A large stainless steel fan keeps air circulating through this spacious living room. Light beige walls, light hardwood flooring and a tall stone fireplace keep the high ceiling and spacious floor plan feel even more open. A pair of beige sofas face a green, upholstered coffee table and a mosaic style end table finishes off the living space.
Simple luxury describes this large, open shower with cream and beige marble wall tile and inlaid stone medallion flooring. The built-in shelves and bench are attractive and functional additions to the space.
