Recently featured in Conde Nast this St Francis Bay home seems to beckon you to relax and unwind. Underneath the deck of this newly built home is a storage room for all the watercrafts and toys, making fun on the canal very convenient.
To add a unique touch to the Francis family's kitchen/living room combination, licensed contractor Chip Wade created custom blown glass lights and terrariums that hang over the dining table in the Francis family's newly renovated kitchen and living room in Atlanta, Ga.
The top floor of a Brooklyn townhouse was opened up so all the rooms flowed into one another and created a huge floor for the kids. This bright, contemporary kid's room receives a nice burst of color with the floral and revolver print bedding. Castle-shaped headboards finish off the whimsical design.
Designer Amy Elbaum carefully selected accent furnishings for this living room renovation with an eye on simple lines and quiet sophistication. The beautiful round mirror that hangs above a simple marble console table makes a strong statement, yet both pieces blend effortlessly together for a unified look. The touch of blue in the glass lamps is another graceful expression here.
The homeowners wanted a unique kitchen space, so designers featured a hidden television inside the space's mirrored backsplash. The special dielectric mirror was designed and fabricated so that it can slide behind the built-in kitchen cabinets in case the television ever needed to be repaired. The home already had cast iron columns, so designers incorporated them into the home's design, giving the space a more industrial feel.
Designer Amy Elbaum lends a timeless quality to this New York City space by mingling the modern with the traditional for a spectacular design. The dining area, with a slightly modern flourish, flows into the living area, which employs color and comfort against a white backdrop. The overall effect is serene, sophisticated and inviting.
The Noho Duplex in New York City has street level entry. With the windows on the front exterior of the space, this left little room for privacy in the home's previous design. The homeowners wanted an industrial feel for their home, so they wanted to stick with a more modern design and didn't want the clutter of having to hang curtains to get privacy, so designers created a two-fold privacy plan. First, they replaced the homes existing windows with frosted paned windows to obscure the view from the street. Then, they added custom fabricated, full height, glazed steel bi-fold doors with frosted glass panels to create a sort of "foyer" in the space. These doors are retractable, so once the family is in for they night, they can fold up the doors and enjoy the open spaces in their home.
Throughout the Noho Loft's design, the homeowners needed a way to make their small spaces look larger and feel more functional, so designers had custom fabricated steel doors and sliding paneling made to help with this. Since many of the doors are not fixed, they allow the homeowners to customize their space to fit their needs at the moment, and because the doors slide rather than swing, they take up less room in the design so the home has more functional floor space.
The top floor of a Brooklyn townhouse was opened up so all the rooms flowed into one another and created a huge floor for the kids. This ultra chic nursery features a graphic accent wall in neutral tones, a deep purple rocking chair with fringe and a white, modern dresser. The unique, floral light fixture adds a perfect touch of whimsy to the space.
For this renovation, designer Amy Elbaum used modern and contemporary art to create an aura of sophistication for each redesigned space. In the dining room, an eclectic gallery of art was hung on one wall to create striking interest. The art complements the simpler design of the table and chairs.
From the street level, designers replaced the home's original glass windows with frosted glass to add a layer of privacy to the home without the bulk of adding window treatments. Wrought iron bars add security, while complementing the sleek, modern style of the interior spaces.
