By bumping out the upper level drawers and reducing the footprint of the lower cabinets, designer Bruce Snell created more storage and room to stand in thisnarrow bathroom. Nickel finishes on the Art-Deco inspired cabinets adds a sleek look.
The family is very concerned about reducing their footprint, so they wanted their renovated house to reflect that concern. They installed windows all around the room to let in lots of natural light and reduce their dependence on electricity. They then commissioned a custom modern vanity made from sustainably harvested hardwood and limestone.
The owners of this home are very eco-friendly, so designers helped them cater their backyard design around their passions. Though the furniture frames look as if they are made of wood, they have been crafted from crushed, recycled paper and tires, helping to reduce the home's footprint.
Sparse desert plants and stone require little water, reducing this home's footprint on the land. To give the bare space some ornamentation, designers added a stone swirl in the yard, providing a fun focal point for the space.
The master bedroom space was reduced in size during a renovation to make room for a master bathroom and a third bedroom for this midcentury modern home. Even with the smaller footprint, the room still offers ample space to comfortably fit a queen-sized bed, dresser, nightstands and chair.
As part of the Virginia Green Lodging program, The Hollady House in Orange, Va., is dedicated to proactively reducing their carbon footprint. One of the ways they do this during the holidays is "by using Forever Lights, which are made from LED bulbs. They last for thousands of hours longer than traditional lights and use almost 80 percent less electricity." Photo courtesy of The Holladay House
