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.
This dining room built-in unit is a great addition since it allows for storage and display space. The unit is large yet simply designed for a harmonious effect in the room. The cabinet hardware adds a touch of elegance to the contemporary-styled piece.
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.
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.
Designer Amy Elbaum selected a modern-styled wingback chair in navy blue to place in the corner of the living room in this apartment redesign. Not only is the chair comfortable, but it also displays great style against the urban skyline out the window. The furry white pillow provides a whimsical touch.
To create the illusion of a floating stair, designers hid the support in the wall behind the stairs. This support, along with the co-planar, clear-tempered glass rails and childproof open slots elegantly comply with New York's rigorous safety code as well as the highest child safety standards.
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.
Stark white walls allow color to pop elsewhere, like the bed linens, in this contemporary kid's room. A floral and revolver print on the bedding is an expected combination that works well with the design. Pops of mustard yellow found on the pillows and bedside lamps add another splash of color.
Comfortable yet resplendent in style, this apartment design by Amy Elbaum is a testament to urban living. By using neutral colors and a simple design aesthetic, Elbaum could accent the space with pops of color, unusual decorative pieces and, of course, the spectacular view from the windows.
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.
From the wall color to the softly hued platform bed to the well-placed modern accessories, this master bedroom is an homage to simple, elegant glamor. The straightforward design blends well with the room's strong architecture, and the soft accent colors are a great contrast to the bold gray walls.
The top floor of this Brooklyn townhouse was opened up so all the rooms flowed into one another and created a huge floor for the kids. Tamara Eaton Design even created this fun, Jack and Jill bathroom with an orange theme on one side and green on the other.
When used together, blue and lime green create a look that is fresh and inspiring. Because the blue-green tone is less intense than the electrifying citrus color of lime green, it's best to use blue as the dominant tone and lime as an accent.
For this apartment renovation, designer Amy Elbaum relied on simple furnishings and neutral colors for the dining area, coordinating with the kitchen and living room in the open concept space. White walls and gray drapes create a backdrop for the modern dining set that features chrome as the tie-in element. A bubble chandelier completes this stylish look.
