Inspired by painting, reading and crafting, the homeowner wanted her office area to face the yard and be flooded with natural light. To keep her work area light and bright, a contemporary desk was added in front of the window. The wasted space beneath the slope of the ceiling was put to good use as display space for massive photography of the family’s two children.
This family-friendly breakfast nook is designed to feel warm and relaxing. The high-gloss white finishes on the floors, furnishings and even the window treatments help reflect the natural light. The space-saving round table creates a more casual environment, and oversized photos make a statement that family is at the heart of this home.

The homeowner of this modern home is an avid art collector, so the walls are all kept clean and white to let the art be the star. In this intermediate space, a large portrait offers a burst of color amidst the cool neutral tones of the home.
In the conference room, a large concrete table adds texture to the space. Around it, rest six natural saddle cab arm chairs that add warmth to the space, but also provide a comfortable place for designers and clients to discuss ideas and close deals. Decorating the walls of this space, two 17th Century Portuguese paintings hang proudly on the white wall, while a 20th Century portrait adorns the exposed brick.
In this corner of the office, a leather Holly Hunt chair sits agains a brick wall under rays of sunlight. Surrounding this elegant chair are antique portraits and a collection of books on which a live orchid rests.

Bright orange accents add pizzazz to this contemporary foyer. A vintage fiberglass table centers the room, and a stunning crystal chandelier hangs above.

Exposed concrete walls give this basement hangout an industrial vibe. The space is made more inviting with a pool table, large black and white portraits and a white couch with bold lettered throw pillows.
