Painting the home black and using charcoal as an accent color on the trim work gives this 1970’s home a modern facelift. The dark colors also highlight the windows and highlight the home’s striking angles and roofline.
Adirondack chairs are timeless and evoke a cool, casual vibe. If you're looking for a traditional spin on your fire pit patio, consider adirondack chairs in punchy painted finishes. One thing to keep in mind is that adirondack chairs are deeper than other styles since their back legs extend far back with a deep pitch, so it's best to thoroughly measure the depth and width of your space before choosing them.
A grand, custom leather sectional defines this family room, emphasizing the beauty of the design. Black linen drapes accented with gold studs drip from the windows and help frame the space. Dark wood floors add richness and depth, while a light-neutral rug brightens up the room and creates a foundation for the room.
The designers left the staircase and fieldstone planter in their original condition, but added a painted wood screen to separate the stairs from the lower-level family room and bedroom, the latter of which is now used as an office. Pushing out the entry door gave the foyer a bit more breathing room, and new porcelain tile flooring updated the look.
Four plush armchairs provide comfortable seating in the freshly updated sunroom. The vaulted ceiling is a gorgeous detail that adds great height and contrast to the space. There's even a place to work thanks to the elongated, built-in desk.
The graphic patterns and bold colors characteristic of midcentury style can overwhelm a small space. But with a little creativity you can get the same effect, as designer Michelle Lord did in this bathroom update. Adding a lattice panel between the vanity and toilet/bath area not only created a sense of privacy but also incorporated pattern and texture, without straying from the all-white and wood palette.
With merely an inch to spare, this laundry room was re-framed twice to accommodate every inch needed for the washer and dryer to stay slim and compact. With no room for a door, the family decided the gain was well worth the view, and with the mom of the house being a successful home organizer, the bet was safe that it would indeed be gorgeous & organized to look at, even when in full use. The ceiling was raised higher and skylights were added to create maximum use of this space.
