The last little bit of island luxury in this home: a tub fit for royalty. With its bright yellow stool and a petite yet regal looking chandelier, this bath is exactly what anyone would want to soak in after a long day. Surrounded by miniature tile in a calming blue, this Brooklyn bathroom has a definite European vibe.
Near a black front door, American boxwood is surrounded by asparagus fern, variegated ivy, white pentas and blue evolvulus, which add a hint of blue and additional depth to the entryway containers, says designer Cameron Watkins. This house has a large entrance so it was important to scale the containers and landscape accordingly, he says. Boxwoods are great for substance plantings and anchoring other foundation shrubs.
The stove wall has multiple focal points including the blue La Cornue stove, a reclaimed tin hood, two curio cabinets and a 2 ¼’’ thick concrete counter top with a silver gray finish to match the hood.
Understated style in a tidy package, this tastefully contemporary deck may inspire an espresso habit. The beautiful dark decking grounds the space, while the lofty white umbrella provides shade for sunny days.
This elegant master bath with neoclassical touches includes a double entry shower. A floating tub separates the his and hers vanities, while textured wood floors add a rustic appeal. Sophisticated wallpaper creates a subtle design element.
Inspired by Marie Antoinette's Le Petit Trianon in Versailles, this East Hampton home is classically designed. A dramatically sloped roof flanked by two matching octagonal wings creates a graceful and traditional silhouette for the home.
A black velvet-upholstered armchair and stool work within the space to create a timeless, European-influenced living room in this boutique hotel. Rich textures, purple accents and thick molding escort visitors into the intimate, charming space.
The courtyard in this elegant backyard brings an element of traditional European landscaping. With an obelisk in the center of the courtyard and foliage on each corner, the space invites visitors to take a jaunt across the yard to admire the symmetry and elegance of the courtyard.
