This front entryway features modern front door with insulated glass, gray interior walls, white oak floating bench, natural dark hardwood floors, and recessed lighting which leads to a staircase with wrought iron railing.
A simple facade and landscaped patio make this Spanish-style home elegant and inviting. The stucco exterior feels uninterrupted thanks to deeply recessed doors and windows. A small balcony with a potted plant overlooks the front yard, while the garage doors are inconspicuous and stylish.
This inviting kitchen features gorgeous warm walnut floors, flat-front white cabinets and a black granite kitchen island. A wooden ceiling accent with recessed lighting is positioned above the island, while a glass door provides quick access to the outdoor patio area.
Brown cabinetry with recessed panel and glass-front doors are shown in this design by Christine Donner. Wine storage is cozily tucked into the bottom corner, and a mirror adds the illusion of more depth and light. Under-cabinet lighting gives the space a warm, inviting feel, just right for entertaining.
The first thing guests see when they walk through the front door? Soaring ceilings, recessed lighting and a metal-and-wood staircase that leads to the home's second level. Because the condo has such an open floor plan, the designers used large area rugs to visually give the owners a distinct "dining room" and "sitting area."
Gray cabinets framed with white molding add visual interest to this small kitchen area. A tray ceiling with recessed lighting adds height to the space and brightens the room with white beadboard. A wood island juts off the the sleek counter space, providing a casual dining space and extra storage for wine bottles. Glass-front cabinet doors allow the yellow cabinet interior to shine through for a pop of yellow, which complements the yellow undertones of the tile backsplash.
It’s hard to imagine now, but this charming living space was once an unassuming commercial garage. To make the most of the compact, 1,260-square-foot space (including an upstairs loft area), Frazier Associates minimized the number of walls within. Exposed brick walls and concrete flooring on the first floor were retained and a new staircase, crafted of reclaimed wood and metal railing, was designed for access to the second floor. "Providing more natural light was the biggest design challenge," say the designers. "A new recessed patio was designed behind the historic garage doors to allow for more light on the first floor, as well as to create a front entrance and a small exterior seating area."
