It's all about the wood in this masculine Craftsman-inspired home office with a paneled wood ceiling, hardwood floors, crown molding with recessed lighting and custom built-in cabinets and bookshelves. Wall sconces with tiny shades, a large wood desk and Craftsman-style windows with stained glass accents completes the room.
By paring this dining room down to the essentials -- a traditional wood table, six slipper chairs and a small light fixture -- the designers ensured that all eyes would be on the view outside. If you look closely, though, you'll see classic details like crown molding, wainscoting and stained glass over the windows.
Pine that was stained a dark walnut creates the open storage shelves below the counter in the baking center. The shelves resemble a freestanding piece of furniture, with display storage for a bread box, dessert stands, mixing bowls, glass cannisters for flour and sugar and a marble rolling pin. A new window above peeks out to an alluring water view.
This kitchen employs simplicity and clean lines to achieve a sleek and classic style. Tubular cabinet and appliance hardware combined with a rectangular stained glass backsplash enforce strong horizontal elements in the design. A pass-through was created between the kitchen and dining room, and the sink window was bumped out, making the smaller space seem more open.
Dark stain on moldings and doors complement the traditional architecture of this Brooklyn townhouse. Original details include a wood paneled wainscot and a transom window above the wide front door. A glass pendant with antique brass hardware fits with the style of the entryway.
An arched, coffered ceiling adds rich architectural interest overhead in this decadent living space, part of The Beverly House, a luxurious Mediterranean-style home located at the heart of Beverly Hills. No surface in the space is unadorned, from the striped wall covering to the ornate wall mirrors to the stained glass panels that draw the eye through the long room to the window and grounds beyond. Multiple seating areas provide ample space for party guests to gather for conversation.
