This Beverly Hills home features Tudor Revival-style diamond-shaped window panes and a steeply pitched roof, though the selection of gray shingles and white board and batten siding offer an updated look.
To create an architectural element worthy of a luxury hotel, Atlanta designer Rachel Greathouse started with a $30 mirror at a flea market. She painted the four-paned frame in a gloss that matched the wall color, and then hung the mirror at a 45 degree angle for an interesting visual effect. From its place above the bed, the mirror can appear like a diamond-shaped window because it reflects the windows on the opposite wall.
A tasseled window valance adds elegance to this prim and proper country kitchen. Cream-colored cabinets provide ample storage while the tile backsplash with diamond-shaped tiles and the Oriental rug add color and texture.
