The Stansell family dining room is minimal in design but dramatic in hue. The gorgeous green is definitely a showstopper trimmed out in white and a perfect complement to the tulip-base white dining table. This room is an example of the fun you can have mixing furniture styles. The wood-stained chairs are more traditional, but they sit comfortably at a modern table, with an edgy chandelier and surrounded by contemporary art. The color green is associated with growth, harmony and safety: I’d say that’s a perfect fit for Stansell family dinners.
This fresh and fruity palette of green and orange is the perfect color combination for a small and narrow bathroom. The colors ensure that the room is not washed out or too bright. With a pedestal vanity, an alternate storage solution is essential if you want the kids to keep the bathroom squeaky clean.
These Connecticut homeowners wanted a net zero home, meaning a house so well-insulated, air-tight and efficient it makes as much energy as it consumes. Their previous home was uncomfortable throughout the year, either too hot or too cold and expensive to maintain.
One of the easiest ways to add holiday flair—fast!—is to use nature’s decorations: swags and garlands of fresh evergreens. They’re even a perfect choice for the dining table, where gracefully drooping branches make softly scented vase fillers.
A large oak tree frames this lovely view from the first floor porch, of the marsh and Intracoastal Waterway. Furniture in the home is a mix of home goods retail (like this surf board table) and designer-sourced items. The dramatic, modern seven-foot couch is the perfect perch to take in the view.
Beyond the main garden room immediately outside the Gilkeson's back door is this large outdoor space where plenty of comfortable outdoor furniture upholstered with the couple's custom line of fabric welcomes guests.
The green paisley wallpaper in this bathroom sets the color scheme for the room. Two small lamp fixtures surround the oval mirror topped with green cloth, plaid lamp shapes to shed light on the glass tile stripe, mirror boxes and green towels sitting on the white tile sink below.
