As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, John and Anthony designed a kitchen space that is family friendly. Adjacent to the both the kitchen and the office space, the kids' play area provides the little ones with a place to play within eyesight while mom and dad fix the family's meals.
The charcoal quartz countertop accommodates two sinks topped with modern chrome faucets in the HGTV Dream Home 2011 master bathroom. A bouquet of white hydrangeas and white countertop accessories extend the neutral canvas. An illuminated magnifying vanity mirror is a thoughtful addition that older visitors or guests with impaired eyesight will really appreciate.
For this Asian inspired home, designers wanted to create a space that was open, inviting and connected. To create that feeling between the upper and lower floors, a glass paneled balcony wall was installed to allow light and eyesight to pass between floors. To keep the space bright and open, a skylight was put in place in the ceiling, adding a warm ambience to the home's two spaces.
This multi-functional space perfectly fits the family perfectly. A comfy, gray sectional, upholstered ottoman and playful striped slipper chair create the TV viewing area, while brass étagères flank a coordinating TV console house metallic woven baskets that act as toy storage for the kiddos. Finally, a cream lacquered and brass desk was placed against the back of the chaise sectional where the homeowners can catch up on work while their kids watch a movie or play within eyesight.
