The home's sitting room was designed as a comfortable reading spot for the homeowners. Within this space, they are able to catch views of the waterfront, while the space's eastern exposure allows for warm morning sunshine all year long.
Feather-themed wallpaper and an antler-inspired mirror pack a lot of design punch in a small powder room. White walls throughout the eclectic, family-friendly house provide a clean backdrop for brightly colored accessories, like the sunshine yellow barstools in the open kitchen.
A bright yellow art piece adds sunshine over the sofa in this contemporary living room. Unique end tables with crossed leg design compliments the wood arm panel on the sofa and low, wood coffee table. Blue throw pillows add a hint of color and compliment the snakeskin rug.
In this long, narrow house, Kariouk Associates Architects used walls of glass to usher in light and designed sleek custom cabinets in bold yellow to help capture and reflect the sunshine. Walnut paneling and accent cabinets offer a warm contrast to the splash of color, keeping the kitchen grounded within the open plan.
A small column raised up from the swimming pool is finished with a small iridescent tile exterior giving it a reflective look in the sunshine. A rock bowl filled with black stones give an earthy, zen quality to the design and houses a waterfall feature flowing down into the pool.
For the bathroom of a designer showhouse, architect Gregg De Meza designed a vanity with a sophisticated modern exterior and sunny yellow interior. “The storage was designed with form and function in mind,” he says. “To keep a clean modern aesthetic, the vanity front is clean and simple. Pull it open for toiletries and get a bonus hit of sunshine to kick off the day.”
The bright, sunshine yellow of the remodeled Tudor kitchen is carried through to the dining room that is directly adjacent to it. To make the space more open, designer removed the wall separating the two spaces, creating a clear line of sight from one space into another. As a nod to the historic home's Tudor style, designers kept the exposed beams on the ceiling of the dining room, and brought in dark wood furniture to complete the design.
A spiral staircase winds down from the yard to this hidden outdoor living room space. Stone walls enclose the space while an open ceiling allows sunshine down into the area. Circular shaped furniture creates a beautiful and interesting aesthetic. The sofa features a red weaved bottom, mating the four coffee tables, and a purple cushion adding bright color to the design. Large planters bring plant life into the space to connect it to the yard above.
Designers wanted the master bathroom to continue the light, sunny design of the master bedroom into the bathroom space, so they continued white walls into the space to reflect the warm, Arizona sunshine let in by high rise windows that keep the space bright, but private. On the floors, designers used white tiles to create a chevron pattern that adds some dimension to the space, while a marble accent wall adds texture and contrast. Designers finished off the space with gold fixtures and wood accents to highlight the room's warmth.
