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.
Even though the master bedroom is on the small side, homeowners didn't want to forfeit functionality, so designers gained floor space where they could. They mounted floating nightstands to either side of the wall for extra storage underneath. They also created a floor-to-ceiling wall of closet space, adding storage without bringing extra, bulky furniture into the space. These additions kept the master bedroom space sleek and modern without sacrificing functionality and storage.
Nothing says sophistication like the right color choices in a room, and for Amy Elbaum's design, she put unusual color combinations together for a beautiful, timeless effect. The navy sofa and soft coral chairs are stunning against the white walls and drapes in this living room, and the scalloped coffee table adds dimension and drama to the space.
Carefully placed translucent accents in the bar area play up the modern design of the kitchen and give the space a more pristine aesthetic. The white countertop, walls and cabinetry showcase each decorative item of color, such as the gold drinking glasses on the table and the orchid plant in its gold vase. The lucite barstools also complement the look.
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 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.
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.
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.
A rolling ladder moves through the second story rooms for upper cabinet access throughout the floor; this ladder is conveniently stored in the bathroom. To give the space an infinity-like feel, designers screwed simple light bulbs directly into the mirrored medicine cabinet for an interesting aesthetic.
Designer Amy Elbaum selected artwork for this renovation that would complement yet contrast with the more traditional furnishings in the room. For example, the large glass-enclosed photograph that hangs above the velvet sofa creates a dimensional pull by setting a complex, industrial design against the white walls and solid color of the furniture. It creates a wonderful marrying of design styles.
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.
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.
