This townhouse actually boasts two offices: one downstairs and one on the top floor, pictured here. In addition to a long desk with chairs for each of the owners, the space comes with built-in bookshelves and a large gray area rug where the kiddos can read or play.
Design is about the details, and the details in this space are subtle but profound. While the living room wall is hard brick, it’s softened by the addition of textiles, like a whimsical Roman shade. The interplay of patterns between the brick wall and the patterned shades creates visual interest, especially when augmented by the simultaneous juxtaposition of warm and cool colors.
This project included a full remodel and second-story addition to a single-story modern home built in 1959. Designer Jeff Troyer used a combination of stone, synthetic wood siding and stucco––all materials which satisfy the high-fire zone requirements in this California neighborhood.
In addition to a main house with seven bedrooms and six baths, this expansive estate boasts a carriage house for guests on the edge of the property. Here, visitors can enjoy their own living room, kitchen and two bedrooms with an attached bath.
Black and white, zigzag print headboards and a trio of artwork are funky, unique additions to this eclectic kids bedroom. The glass-topped table, fashioned from pieces of hand-gathered driftwood, serves as the room's centerpiece and flexible gooseneck lamps aid in reading or homework.
At the end of a long private drive, this modern home sits atop a hill surrounded by 1.4 park-like acres. The lush grounds offer the seclusion of being in the woods with the modern conveniences of city living. Compositionally, the white geometric box serves as the anchor for the three cedar additions.
The scope of this project involved adding 1,217 square feet to an 87-year-old home to meet the needs of a growing family. The exterior was built to look original to the home and to complement the neighboring houses in the historic neighborhood. The addition has a seamless look by matching the home's existing brick but part of it was designed to look like an enclosed sleeping porch, a common characteristic of older homes in the neighborhood.
This stunning mountainside home in Phoenix includes 2,000 square feet of covered patios that extend along three sides of the home, offering panoramic views and outdoor access to almost every room in the house. The renovation of this home removed additive Spanish revival design features which obstructed the views and detracted from the home's style. A second story addition cantilevered over the property added an extra bedroom while preserving lower-level outdoor living space.
Inset bookshelves flank the ornate fireplace of this authentic Victorian home. A transitional chair, antique rug and assorted eclectic accents are inviting and sophisticated for the space. A large mirror on a pedestal base is an exquisite and eye-catching addition over the fireplace.
