Rough-sawn fir planks set in a board-and-batten style clad the walls in this master bedroom. Colorful fabric panels provide a nice backdrop for the wood slab headboard. The attached sitting room enjoys sweeping views of the surrounding Arizona desert.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, the primary challenge for Kevin & Celine's family home was maintaining a balance between the heritage of the house and incorporating a modern design. Designer Jillian Harris bridged the border between modern and historical by choosing a modern version of tile for the backsplash. The originally planned grey slate tiles were set aside with the discovery of the original fir floor boards. A large peninsula created as a gathering place for the family. A deep pantry to the right of the fridge was designed by having to close off a small corridor that was no longer to code.
The warm feel of the loft's Douglas fir and pine timber beams is carried into the kitchen via wood shelves, barstools and even the cutting boards. The shelving is open, letting the handsome ceramic dishes be an integral part of the decor.
