This contemporary dining space features a bay window and dark wood table with ladder backing chairs. The long mirror gives the illusion that the room is wider and the see through bookshelf gives an open feel while providing decor space and storage.
This old colonial home had many smaller rooms that needed to be opened up and integrated to make the space more usable for a modern day family. A desk and ladder-back chair is tucked into a corner to create a functional workspace.
A classic wood desk and ladder-back chair add country charm to this white office space. A hanging straw hat complements the country furniture, while metallic candlesticks with purple candles and sparkling glass drawer knobs bring a touch of bling to the old-fashioned desk.
Bright yellow cabinetry creates a bright, sunny kitchen. A banquette with bench seating and ladder-back chairs provides a breakfast area with colorful, patterned cushions and pillows. A vaulted ceiling with exposed wood beams and a hanging lantern above the breakfast area add rustic charm to this space.
White cabinetry is set off by a dark-stained, custom built-in bookcase with the same dark stain featured on two sides of the peninsula in this transitional California kitchen. A white subway tile backsplash lines the room while pendant lights hang over the dining table and ladder-back chairs.
Repurposed ladders now serve as shelves to display meaningful objects, tchotkes and books to give this sitting area a personal, collected fell. An antique cane back chair, modern white side table and fiddle leaf fig tree create an inviting, eclectic corner sitting area.
A cool blue mosaic fireplace surround contrasts nicely against the warmth of the fire. This multifunctional space consistently draws family together as the centerpiece of this open kitchen and living area.
