Make your storage do double duty as decor. While the vanity cabinet in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winning powder room is custom made, a standard vanity without doors on either side can add decorative storage to any small bathroom, says designer Stephanie A. Bruntz of Studio B Design. Bruntz says the diagonal slats in her custom cabinet are one of the more expensive elements, so adding a horizontal shelf or no shelf at all would be much cheaper. She adds that a stylish pendant can also create a designer look without breaking the bank. You can buy frosted mini glass pendants at Home Depot for under $20, while regular sizes range from $80-$100.
The renovation of this 12,000-square-foot home will transform into an extravagant mountain retreat featuring a new 2,500-square-foot guest cottage opening onto a summer kitchen and pool bar, 75′ long infinity edge pool, tennis pavilion, extensive water features, garden and hiking trails. Not your typical renovation, this grand-scale renewal and addition will exhibit some of the world’s finest granite and stone, beautiful custom cabinetry, custom wood and glass folding and lift-side doors that open rooms completely to the outdoors, and other exquisite materials and inspiring novelties, all while staying true to the home’s traditional rustic origins. Scheduled for completion later this year, this one-of-a-kind Asheville retreat will be in a class all its own.
