The narrow shape of the kitchen feels lighter and brighter thanks to white upper cabinets, some with glass doors, and big windows. The lower cabinets have a pale gray wash, a pretty blend with the appliances' stainless steel.
This comely garden setting in this small home's backyard shows how careful planning can produce an outstanding design. K&D Landscape Management used unusual wood fencing material for the pergola and to line the perimeter of the yard and added colorful small and large scale plants for balance and interest. A well-conceived lighting plan, as seen here, produces a dramatic effect.
Pale green floral patterns were hand-painted on this dining room wall using a large-scaled stencil. Moldings encase the paintings, producing a similar effect to framed wallpaper at a fraction of the cost. The dark wood dining table and pendant chandelier add sophisticated style to this transitional dining space.
