Although the cabinets don't meet the ceiling, white walls and transom windows close the gap to prevent the kitchen from looking disjointed and blocky. A large kitchen island anchors the room, providing additional counter space, storage and an eat-in breakfast bar area. Modern wooden barstools bring in warmth and a natural element to offset all the white surfaces.
Cherry wood strip flooring, curved and bent in a pattern matching the radial form of the residence, is a spectacular example of the attention to detail in this modern kitchen. High-end finishes, like the Cambria quartz countertops, offsets the industrial elegance of the cast-in-place structural concrete wall. Floating storage echoes the elevated kitchen islands and influences the open feel.
A darker, earthy green was selected for the walls in this room and a new rattan pendant replaced the old ceiling fan for a decorative touch. Two nightstands and a bench that was reupholstered in a kiwi green suede were added alongside a wood bed and 6-drawer dresser. A few shimmery art pieces add a little sparkle around the room and offset the earthy, natural feeling in the other pieces.
Hill Country Apothecary's goal was to create a public gathering space both for the shopping center it's located in as well as for its customers, so designers created sitting areas throughout the space so that patrons can comfortably enjoy a drink or a good conversation. To complement the stylish seating areas, MF Architecture redesigned the logo for Hill Country Apothecary and added it to the interior walls to offset the minimal palette of poplar wood and neutral colors.
The effective layout of this space gives it the full functionality of a non-studio apartment. Offset from the bedroom, the sofa faces the back wall creating an intimate seating area of its own. A cubicle shelf unit serves as a simple room divider between the living room and bedroom. Small, sleek accessories and decor make the space visually appealing while keeping it from appearing cluttered or busy. Tip: Use warm colors, like orange and taupe, to make the room look cozy without feeling dark. Design by HGTV fan bearkelley
