The ocean bluff side of the house is a narrow strip designed and installed with strictly low impact uses. A cantilevered deck, native plants, dry-laid pavers and a bocce court bring the living outside. On a clear day, the homeowners watch pelicans fishing, hang gliders drifting by at eye level and surfers in the white water from their breakfast table.
The dining room by Shelly Riehl David uses bold colors to create a vibrant dining space. Custom draperies on iron medallions were paired with an enameled walnut credenza, glided buffet lamps and mahogany dining table. Silk upholstered side chairs were grouped with button-tufted head chairs and showcased on travertine tiles gridlocked by narrow black granite stripes. An elegant centerpiece and simple accessories accentuate the timeless elegance of this room.
Design a solution to fit your lifestyle with a custom reach-in closet. Choose your own combination of hanging rods, open shelves, drawers, and baskets with full-extension glides, accommodating all of your clothes and accessories so you can put together the perfect outfit each day. An appealing Cocoa color and Oil-Rubbed Bronze hardware keep the entire look polished, making the closet one of your favorite features in the room.
Perfect for a tight family or living room, this wall-hung entertainment unit from EasyClosets frees up floor space and includes drawers with full extension glides to keep favorite games, movies and music organized and out of sight. Using a wall-mounted unit like this gives you the storage you need, while also visually stretching a smaller space.
When you’re painting furniture with moving parts, like drawers or casters, preparation is really important. Be sure to tape off casters and mask off internal ball bearing glides so that they stay free and clear of paint overspray. No one wants to deal with “sticky” drawers all day long. If your piece has a wood or plastic veneer, give it a light sanding and wipe down before you paint.
