What was once a small cold entryway and sunroom is now a new dining room that sits behind the Miller family's living room. Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri, from HGTV's Cousins On Call, tore down the old wall and french doors that separated the two rooms, as well as the old ceiling. With a taller ceiling, and new wooden support beam, this room is not only twice the size, but it makes the whole house feel larger and brighter. The dining room table was made by the cousins themselves, and the chairs and accessories are CB2.
Tiny homes are rarely designed with private bedrooms but this home from Movable Roots truly has it all. With a full-size bed, a vaulted ceiling, and its own patio entrance this master bedroom is tiny house luxury. The white shiplap and brass lighting details are carried into the space to create design continuity. Lastly, the strategically placed cabinets provide storage and also act as bedside tables.
The foyer of the Williamson home prominently features a portrait of beloved Mexican artist Frida Kahlo by artist Molly B. Right. Allison says of her two sons, Ben and Henry, "they've been around art since they were babies." When she was first beginning her career as a gallerist "there would always be art stacked around on tables." She admits "one time a soccer cleat went through a painting."
"Well, why the hell not?" seems to be the motto of this small space. Even though the apartment only has a living room and a bedroom, the designers have fit much more life into the space. In the main living area, designated areas for a home office, a sitting area, a living room, a dining area and a wet bar have been established. The bedroom, although small, has made the most of its space with a slender dresser and hanging end table, and the entryway has been transformed into a makeshift mudroom. Who says you can't have it all?
The open floor plan of this contemporary living space is ideal for entertaining. A putting green on the balcony is easily accessed through chic sliding doors that provide an exquisite view of the urban surroundings while bathing the space in natural light. Two sofas and matching ottomans, along with clusters of octagon tables, allow for flexible arrangements, accommodating gatherings from intimate to grand. A graphic area rug in blacks and browns anchors the room, while a modern gray built-in bookcase with custom shelving anchors the wall near the entrance.
