The goal for the sitting area was an airy, relaxing space, so designers stuck with the neutral color palette, bringing in chairs covered in luxurious fabrics. White, sheer curtains help to diffuse the natural light let in through the windows to achieve the desired feel, while silver foil striped wallpaper adds a touch of glamour to the cozy space.
Exposed brick and enormous windows provide an urban backdrop for this dining room. A mix of seating around a long, wood dining table creates a casual atmosphere. Overhead, pendants made from repurposed wine bottles enliven the room both day and night.
This friendly family room was formerly the house's foyer and it went largely unused. The designers removed an exterior door, and centered the focus on the fireplace and new built-in shelves. The homeowners now spend time in this room every day.
In the girl’s room, a crib mattress nests under the bed just in case she rolls too far over in the night. The bed is one half of a bunk set, and its mate is in her brother’s room. One day when the children are older, the bunks will be reunited.
This guesthouse includes a living area, dinette and open kitchen. With floor-to-ceiling windows and views to the garden, light fills the room throughout the day. This open-concept home is family-friendly yet maintains a contemporary feel.
This living room wins the day when it comes to cozy with its expansive, built-in bookshelves, fireplace and unique doorway. For the doorway, designers created a paneled white oak vestibule in a classic barn shape to transition from the dining room into the living room. So many skylights open the space to the outdoors.
The timeline for the redesign of the room was six days, due mostly in part to the quick installation of the floor. FLOR carpet tiles were installed after the existing wall-to-wall carpet was removed along with its padding. All that was needed for installation was a utility knife with extra blades as well as an L-square.
The key element of this master bathroom is the natural light. The exterior metal panels allow sun to come in throughout the day while still providing privacy. The room changes from day to day and season to season depending on the sun's placement. The natural stone on the shower walls and bath surround complement the natural wood floor and cabinets for a cohesive overall look.
A patio was added to the front of this home during renovation, creating an outdoor living space that connected to the home's sitting room for ultimate livability. Bifolding screens were added to the patio to limit the effects of the bright desert sun on the room during the day. The perforations on the screen allow for a breeze to enter both the outdoor patio space and the indoor room when the sliding doors are open.
To create a kitchen that's capable of entertaining and feels friendly enough for every day, designers incorporated durable, unfussy Caesarstone countertops, white oak millwork and adjustable lighting. The subtle light fixtures help the room transition gracefully from day to night.
