This kitchen has been reconfigured to take advantage of the new open concept floor plan. A large kitchen island provides more counter space, as well as doubles as a kitchen table with stools running underneath. The sliding door was reduced to a sink under the window, allowing the galley kitchen to run along the whole wall. Stainless steel appliances, pendant and recessed lighting, and a neutral color scheme create a clean modern look to the kitchen. New flooring was added throughout the whole first floor.
The office is where Camille works from home. The space is flooded with light with windows that look out onto the home’s front lawn. The window trim has been painted in a crisp blue, a perfect fit with the home’s pink and blue color palette. A desk with turned legs brings some traditional style home. Camille is great at mixing styles, and a modern Eames office chair in white fits seamlessly into the space. A retreat for the couple’s puppy also fits into the home office decor.
The homeowner's newly renovated kitchen is shown. The wall section dividing the kitchen and dining room has been removed, allowing a straight line of site through the whole first floor. The refrigerator now stands where the old sink previously was, and the old window closed up. A new slightly smaller kitchen island allows the same bar stools to fit comfortably in the narrow room. The sink has moved below the other back window. A clean white color scheme, updated stainless steel appliances and modern overhead lighting create a contemporary feel to the space without changing the room's size.
To lay the groundwork for this modern bathroom, designers started with a neutral color palette that would reflect the natural light let into the space from the skylight above. Then, they added modern wood cabinets and a gray countertop to warm the space. To give the room a touch of personality, a gray, black and white penny round tile backsplash was added, and a gray and white chevron floor was laid. In the shower area, the walls are covered in off-white tile with a penny round tile inset that matches the backsplash to tie the space together.
This classic, black and white family room uses elegant French doors with matching transoms to create a bright, white space. These features allow plenty of natural light to flow into this large room, creating a spacious and vibrant look. To warm the white space, black accents were added, creating a warm, inviting place to relax and entertain. Patterned curtains and chairs were used to soften the contrasting black and white color palette, while a white, high armed sofa and a black and white coffee table anchor the space.
Homeowners wanted a non-traditional design in this modern nursery that could grow with their son as he grows, so designers created this edgy space. The black and white color palette makes the space modern and unique, while the black sound waves running up the wall keep the space from feeling too babyish; however, the artwork from Shel Silverstein's classic children's book "Where the Sidewalk Ends" helps to bring nursery innocence to the space. To add the finishing touches, air ducts and pendant lights were exposed to give the space an edgier look and a reading nook was created as a comfortable place to foster learning throughout this little boy's life.
This is one of my favorite master bedrooms of all time. It immediately reads as a luxury destination. This was the last space we designed in our original scope of work and I wanted everything we chose to have as much tactile appeal as it did visually. Wherever you land, you’ll sink down into lush velvets, silks, furs or mohair. The color palette is small but soothing, varying from dark chocolates to taupes with dashes of white to keep it crisp and reflect light. We used a faux silk wallcovering in the bedroom’s entry and on the bed wall, but conserved by using a perfect color-matched paint on the walls adjacent. I know it may seem a little indulgent but whenever you can, try adding fresh flowers or an orchid in your bedroom: instant hotel suite status!
From an icy blue and white color palette to touches of silver and rich, menswear-inspired fabrics, see how a lackluster bedroom gets a winter-inspired makeover full of the season's hottest trends. In this design from Brian Patrick Flynn, a collection of framed artwork and photography is simply leaned against the wall above the entry’s console table. A small table lamp made of mercury glass helps reflect the light it emits once switched on at night. A mirrored console table serves as the base for this lovely white and silver vignette, featuring silver frames, white hydrangeas, silver bird accessories and a white faux deer head.
Sometimes, the architecture of your home is the best guide for the style of the furnishings you fill it with; other times, its surroundings will direct you. When choosing furniture for this living room, designer Kristen Rivoli took the latter tack. “This space is in a building right next to the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), in New York City, so our inspiration was the classic midcentury modern furniture you might find at the museum,” she says. “We found the side table at a vintage furniture store, but the sofa is new—it’s available through KRID but it has the lines of a classic tuxedo-style sofa. The Brittania light fixture is also new but adds to the midcentury style, and the toss pillows are custom-made in a mellow color palette typical of the ‘50s and ‘60s.”
