Sleek wooden chairs with simple white upholstery create a seating area at the potting station. When the project is done the table can fold up nicely and the chairs provide a place to relax and watch the game on the large flat screen television.
An iron frame on this transitional coffee table echoes the iron found in the great room’s chandelier and adds architectural interest to the expansive space. White upholstered sofas provide ample seating without making the room feel heavy.
The largest challenge this project presented can't be seen at first glance, but sits just below the surface of the garden. In order to preserve the reflecting pond and associated eco-systems from washing out, the landscape architects needed to capture the surface water from several surrounding neighbors and divert it underground. The result is an outdoor space that seems effortless, yet is entirely innovative.
One of the garden's greatest strengths is its intuitive layout: guests enter off the kitchen, arrive at an outdoor dining table, then shift to a nearby sitting area for drinks before they end the night by the fire pit.
This gourmet kitchen features top of the line Thermador and Sub-Zero appliances, as well as a long island and generous dining set for effortless entertaining. After a day on the water, the owners and their guests can retreat out here for cocktails and a nice meal.
Simplicity reigns in this farmhouse-inspired kitchen. An industrial-style pendant light hangs above country-style dining table and chairs, while white cabinets and open shelves keep the space light, bright with an open feeling.
With a stainless grill on one side and an eat-in counter on the other, the owners of this home will have no trouble planning their next backyard barbeque. After dinner, guests can take their drinks up a short flight of stairs to the sitting area.
An open floor plan allows for effortless entertaining, as guests can mingle in the living room or take a seat around the nearby dining table. Neutral furnishings in both spaces also encourage cohesion.
The open layout of this kitchen, in addition to the expansive island, allows for great entertaining when friends and family visit. It was important for the family to have a functional chefs kitchen that would give them the opportunity to host while enjoying the company of their guests.
To update the fireplace, designers replaced the original hearth tile with tile that feels effortless, as if it had been there forever. To make the feature special to the homeowners, it features a family heirloom painting that completes the design's natural feeling for the family.
