Contemporary-style sofas, upholstered in durable Sunbrella fabric, feature aluminum frames and synthetic wicker bases — both recyclable. Two cube-shaped, industrial-style coffee tables were handcrafted from sustainable wood by carpenter David Brown. The yellow chairs provide a nice contrast against the black and white patterned pillows and add pops of color against the brick floor and accent landscaping wall.
A honed granite countertop provides functional seating at the kitchen island in this narrow kitchen. Painted faux-antiqued cabinetry brings a bit of rusticity to the overall refined and spacious feel. Repurposed bricks create a façade on the accent wall while over-scaled subway tile with dark grout is used above Calcutta marble countertops. Vintage industrial lights hang over the island adding drama and whimsy.
Designer Linda McDougald turned a culinary student's dream kitchen into a reality with a brilliant kitchen design that has all the trimmings to make cooking, cleaning and entertaining a breeze. A vaulted ceiling allows for a tall cabinet and range hood in this impressive transitional kitchen. Gray brick adds an accent strip to the wall under the range hood. The large island features two sinks on the gray countertop. A neutral bar extends from the island providing eating room. Industrial pipe stools with wood tops add a distinctive detail.
