The cleaner your look, the less likely it is to go out of fashion. This kitchen from Jan Goldman, owner of renovation and design firm Kitchen Elements, minimizes hardware with custom-designed pantries and drawers that are flush with the wall; the china hutch in the middle features simple sliding glass doors.
A painting by artist Erin Gregory set the color palette for this family room. The blue sofa table was custom-made to fit behind the oversized sofa (164" wide!) and helps visually delineate the family room from the adjacent kitchen.
Muted blue walls compliment the warm wood tones in this dining room. Tribal pottery and colorful wall art are positioned above a wood hutch. A dining table and chairs with sharp, modern lines adds a handcrafted look.
Cool blues work against the warm woods and artwork in this transitional dining room from designer Helen Richardson. The homeowner’s eclectic mix of art objects is displayed prominently while the walls, painted in Benjamin Moore’s HC-137, provide a perfect complement for the warm, rich multiwood tone and clean-lined furnishings.
An antique brass chandelier hangs above the dining table with Windsor chairs. The wallpaper and floor-to-ceiling curtains, along with the collections of blue toile plates, give this dining room a romantic, vintage feel.
An unusual, orange home office makes playful use of small side tables to create shelving against one wall. Blue accents and a floral rug complete the room. A chandelier hangs overhead, while a vase of peacock feathers and unique art adds interesting detail to the room.
Green and blue hues give this open concept living and dining space a calming coastal feel. Rustic green shutters act as a divider between the rooms, with the wooden dining table, cushioned bench and hutch to the right and grey sofa with brass floor lamp on the left.
