Architectural details are on display in this farmhouse-inspired dining and living room. Rustic wood paneling highlights the vaulted ceiling, limestone draws attention to the two-story fireplace and panel moulding accentuates the floating stairwell and landing. Crystal chandeliers and a French-country dining set give the home an feel of permanence.
A nook at the top of a stairwell functions well as a compact, built-in home office. Floating shelves provide storage for office supplies and decorative objects. An all-white palette on the walls, ceiling and woodwork makes the red-orange panels of the stairway accent wall stand out even more in the contemporary space.
This modern floating steel and wood staircase rises adjacent to an oversized polycarbonate window. The translucent polycarbonate offers privacy while still providing daylight in the middle of the open stairwell.
