A limestone backsplash adds visual texture to the neutral palette in this elegant, modern kitchen designed by Antonio Martins. An oversized, industrial light fixture highlights the scale of the generous kitchen island.
Catherine Olasky and Maximilian P. Sinsteden with Olasky & Sinsteden used several works from artist Martin Mooney, an English oil painter fascinated with and influenced by the Dutch style of still life, in a traditional library.
Designer Beth Martin sought to evoke thoughts about light and space in the powder room at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The mirror on the back wall bounces light throughout the intimate space while reflecting the "watchful eye" painted on the ceiling.
Just off the pantry area where Antonio Martin's antique craftsman's tools are on display and at the front of the design floor, sits an antique Chines chair next to a modern buffet and three pieces of modern artwork.
With an eat-in counter, sitting area and fire pit, this outdoor space can easily accommodate large parties and more intimate gatherings. Keeping the furniture within a black-and-white palette ensures that everything matches.
A built-in bookshelf is artfully decorated with books and pretty accessories, while an adjacent closet provides hidden storage. Dark hardwood floors contrast against the bright white walls of the hallway.
White subway tile is finished with a white marble countertop for a sleek, contemporary walk up counter. A chalkboard menu is easily viewed against the bright, white surroundings. Three pendant lights give a warm glow above the counter. The clean, organized kitchen features stainless steel surfaces and tied up door beads for added style.
