The dining area features a statement piece for the home: a built-in china cabinet. It’s the perfect place for Camille and Joe to store their collection of china, which has been sourced during travels to Europe and locally in California. A glimmering brass and crystal chandelier was also original to the home. The couple restored it, shining the piece and returning it to its original glory.
The architectural delights of this home seem never-ending, and this massive built-in mirror and bench only add to the wonder. Here Nana Yaa offers another colorful display of books as well as a glimpse of her impressive collection of records. A sentimental, personal touch, the space is decorated with a single photograph of the designer’s mother.
Custom built-ins with sleek, clean lines lend a dash of modern style to this apartment on New York's Upper East Side. Open shelving offers ample space to display the homeowner's collection of books and accessories.
To connect the garage addition to the existing house, a spacious mudroom entry is built and filled with custom built-ins. Before the renovation, the family would enter the home through the side door that had no storage. Now, the space offers room for shoes, backpacks and coats.
A built-in nightstand backed by decorative beadboard provides stylish, functional storage in this transitional kid's bedroom. An upholstered headboard with two rows of nailhead trim is custom-built to fit the space, and reading lights above are a practical addition. Dinosaur-printed bedding, acid green pillows and a matching chevron rug add kid-friendly flair.
Modern elements elevate this larger-than-life townhouse living space. Custom built-in bookshelves and an aquarium share the same hardwood tones, drawing the eye upward to the glass railing on the second floor balcony.
