Located in a carriage house, this elegant guest bedroom features a mix of styles and luxe fabrics. The periwinkle hue on the transitional upholstered headboard carries over to a traditional love seat, while neutral French pleat drapes call out the fawn-colored footstool.
Three tall panes of leaded, frosted glass provide privacy for a shower created from a window bay in this storybook carriage house. The open shower features a waterfall shower head, and a sliding mechanism allows for a barn door-style enclosure. A petite teak table keeps bathing accessories close at hand for guests.
Front carriage-style doors open to reveal a garage fully stocked with top-of-the-line recreational equipment, a work bench, a lounge area for relaxing, a dining table and decidedly collegiate plaid papered walls.
The front of the home was reimagined with steps leading to a more pronounced portico. A stacked stone veneer dresses up the singled facade, while the addition of a carriage style garage door adds extra charm.
The entry to the Villa Toscana has an enchanting carriage-style garage area. This Tuscan-Mediterranean waterfront home boasts a covered balcony, stone-paved courtyard and dark wood shutters that accent the home's light-colored exterior.
This lovely split-level home blends in beautifully with the trees and lawn around it, thanks to its soft gray-green siding. The stone facade and steps provide a touch of nature while the carriage-style garage doors and elegant wood front door add a bit of Craftsman charm.
The existing landscape provided a challenge, but also the opportunity to design outdoor living spaces on several levels. The flat-roofed family room needed a pitched roof to blend with the existing house, but the roof, along with the turret, couldn’t block existing windows. To accomplish the homeowners’ vision, interior walls had to be removed, but they were constructed of clay blocks, which supported two-story block walls above. We continued the 16:12 pitched roof over the existing family room, but shifted it back to allow light into the third-story window. The same pitched roof covers the garage addition, but a reverse gable with paneled accents provides interest and a carriage house feel.
The carriage house suite was designed to accentuate air and light, as evidenced by the large windows and open beam ceiling. By placing fine antiques and luxurious fabrics in this rustic environment, guests are treated to the same level of comfort and elegance established in the main house. The suite features hand-scraped reclaimed pecan floors.
Reclaimed barn wood provides the ideal accent for the white painted fireplace and gray mantel in this cottage-inspired living room. Custom cabinetry flanks the fireplace and carriage lights are installed above the mantel for a true design statement.
An inviting porte-cochere trimmed with heavy wood beams connects a side entrance of this French country-style home in Atlanta, Georgia, to a small shed that is set up to serve as a private office or studio. Both structures are clad in whitewashed wood shingles, mimicking the style of the adjacent carriage house garage.
