In the sitting room of this lovely cottage, blue tones create a warm, soothing space. Plenty of sunlight streams into this sitting rom from the doors along the back wall, brightening the room and giving it an elegant glow. The sofa and chairs are covered in a comfortable, blue linen that complements the color of the walls creating a cozy space for good conversation.
The homeowners wanted an elegant, serene master space, so designers included luxurious materials and a neutral color palette in their design. From the upholstered headboard to the fluffy comforter to the overstuffed furniture, everything in the space was carefully selected to make the homeowners feel as if they were resting on a cloud. To help this feeling, designers hung sheer curtains in front of the large window to diffuse the natural light and bring an airy feel to the space.
Bedroom. The design of this bedroom starts with the bed. Whites, soft grays and other soothing tones make this bedroom positively restful, and did you notice the sofa? The only thing that would make this bedroom more calming would be a view.
The first room enters from the grand foyer. The living room is designed for social gatherings whether it’s a weekly book club, a knitting circle or a wine tasting. But far from formal, the space – thanks to a soothing color palette and whimsical, unexpected touches – invites all those who enter to grab a seat, kick off their shoes and relax.
A chrome hand shower contributes to this guest bathroom's soothing, spa-like feel. The bathroom's amenities plus the combination of finishes and materials create a refined space that also feels relaxed and inviting.
The vision was to add a water feature in the bathroom. The water pours into a tiled tub, and then overflows into the shower unit. The glass tiles and beautiful natural stone surrounding the space blend well together to create a soothing atmosphere.
For additional ambiance, the landscape architects outfitted the garden with an accent wall that doubles as a cool, cascading water feature. Lush green plants all around further the sense of a hidden oasis.
For additional visual interest, the Landform Design Group added an accent wall to the far side of the pool. With smooth island stone and seven "scupper" fountains, the piece is both eye-catching and relaxing.
This busy, traveling family wanted the perfect California modern home to spend the summers. Slipcovered white furniture flank an impressive fireplace, while floor-to-ceiling draperies add height to the space. Patterned pillows and area rug add visual texture to the room.
