The Apothecary includes a full-service retail pharmacy with products displayed on the steel, aluminum, and poplar wood super-graphic shelf that runs the full height and length of the glass storefront. The super-graphic combines the pharmacy's needs for clear and bold branding as well as ease of access to the products on display while allowing the daylight to filter through the entire space. The super-graphic manages direct southern light, adequately and naturally lighting the pharmacy interior while protecting sensitive items on the shelves. Materiality and form are carefully composed to create an uplifting and efficient workplace for daily pharmacy functions that are transparent to customers.
You don’t have to wait for a custom-made island to enjoy the style and functionality of a stone countertop. The Bluestone Kitchen Island, $1,999, from Crate & Barrel is crafted with reclaimed pine from old buildings and doors and topped with a lustrous slab of bluestone for a high-end look. Inside, two roomy drawers open with antiqued iron pulls, while spacious open shelves and two iron towel bars provide additional storage. The top slab of bluestone is wet sanded and waxed to a smooth finish that reveals its organic character. Two counter-height stools can be tucked inside for casual, in-kitchen dining.
The home office space needed to have plenty of storage and function, so designers added a lacquer and stained oak custom built-in unit with open shelving, cabinets and drawers, as well as a usable workspace for the desktop computer. When the computer is not in use, the free-standing desk provides another work space. To warm up the space and create a contrast from the monochromatic colors, designers brought in a brown, swivel, office chair for a comfy place to sit.
For the bathroom of a new home in Westchester County, NY, architect Daniel Contelmo created an elegant vanity that is as rich in storage as it is in style. “It’s packed with various storage options, equally divided for the couple who shares the bath,” says Contelmo. Among the amenities are a built-in hamper, a linen closet, plenty of cabinets and drawers, lighted custom-framed mirrors and a central shelving area that offers display space and visually breaks the long limestone counter.
This beautiful Asian spa in spired master bathroom is the ultimate place to relax in this on-the-go city. Twenty six floors above the Las Vegas Strip, this bathroom feels like a quick trip to their orient. The double sink vanity is custom made from zebra wood, which gives the space a more authentic look. A large soaker tub is tucked away behind a small wall so that bathers can still enjoy the view from the sky, but are also given a bit of privacy. The accents in the space also help to give it that private, spa feel. The koi fish on the wall bring in the Asian inspiration, while the cherry ladder shelving houses spa essentials as well as antique Asian accessories.
John and Anthony, hosts of Cousins on Call, removed the curtains surrounding Khloé Kardashian Odom and LaMar Odom's original home theater television. The cousins updated this home theater design by building custom California redwood shelving to frame the large screen television. The planks on the sides of the room house the speakers and surround sound and are also made of California redwood. The family can enjoy their new home theater system in the luxury of their new, plush 13 foot couch and smaller luxury love seats. The Odom family now has a spacious, modern home theater system that is great for the whole family.
