A powder room is a great place to create a sense of drama as it is small and intimate and is visited for just a few minutes at a time. The black/white/gray geometric cement tiles continue the theme from the kitchen to bathroom. The pattern in this powder room is a bit different but the flooring adds a bit more drama.
This newly renovated living room use to have an old non-functioning fireplace that has been replace with a large wall organizer and an electric fire screen. Updated wall colors, a modern couch with ottoman, and new lighting create a new living space. The wall dividing the living room and the hallway has been partially opened, as well as the archway between the living and dining rooms, creating a more open flow to the first floor.
The animal-loving little boy wanted the wilderness in his space. After painting it the same greige as in the dining room, Sonal stuck on a vinyl decal world map from Wallums and hung a wicker antelope head from Target. Zane picked out the light (from All Modern): “He said it’s like stars in the sky,” says Sonal. With a tent from Crate & Kids and a throw with pine trees (also from Target), the room is almost a permanent campout.
Attached to the mudroom, this powder room is the main bathroom for guests. The walls are covered in the same beach-y shade of gray-green used in the mudroom, with a custom piece of art by David Bromstad that depicts a large silhouette of a fish.
A mid-century modern style family room with a collection of furniture classics: An Italian leather sofa, wicker egg chair, natural wood coffee table and modern light fixture create a sophisticated space. Light wood tone floors with an inspired area rug and sliding glass doors highlight the views.
Just off the master bedroom is a spacious master bath featuring two dressing areas and a step down shower room that gives the feeling of a spa-like oasis. One theme of this showhouse was the variety of high quality artwork and novel ways to display it including this embroidery displayed on a stand-alone easel.
Inspired by a velvet cerulean blue sofa, this home features a soft color palette with pops of bold color. Some of the colors were taken from the preppy and Easter-inspired hues that people wear in the Washington D.C. area. Tribal and African accents add a unique element to the neutral and traditional furniture pieces.
How to freshen up classic board-and-batten paneling: Paint all of it, as well as the window casings, dark gray (Porpoise by Sherwin-Williams). The rich blue of the chairs—scored at a vintage store—go beautifully with the color. “They seem grand but not stuffy or formal,” says Sonal. “We use one as the special birthday chair when cutting cake with family.” They’re paired with white plastic molded chairs from Overstock and an industrial table from RH. Instead of traditional fabric curtains, Lisa hung fringy macramé ones from RH Teen for an unexpected hit of texture. The rug is from Nourison.
