The white walls of the lower level continue to the upper level of this penthouse apartment. These white walls make the colorful pieces of this homeowner's collection stand out. Floating shelves showcase the homeowner's collection of blown glass, while simple, elegant, modern furniture highlights the intricacies of the oriental rug in the living room. The china cabinet in the back of the space displays even more of the homeowner's treasures.
In this Tudor kitchen, designers aded aspects that would modernize the space, while make sure the new design kept true to the integrity of the historic Tudor home. The walls are painted a light yellow color that makes the space bright, while the white cabinets and black soapstone countertops help to create a unique contrast. The upper cabinets are glass paneled, creating a more modern display case, while the lower cabinets are updated and have plenty of room for storage. Wood panels cover the kitchen's major appliances to help them seamlessly blend in with the design and create a sophisticated space full of all the modern comforts with plenty of traditional charm.
Just after the entry but before we get to the living space, is the heart of the home, our kitchen. No compromises were made in this surprisingly expansive kitchen designed by Randy Jones of Incredible Tiny Homes whose motto is "Choose Tiny, Live Free." Not only is there a stained planked wood ceiling, it also houses a full-size refrigerator, range and farmhouse sink. I’m especially drawn to the way the gray upper cabinets compliment the blue lower cabinets against the wood butcher block counters. Last but not least, the ladder takes us to the tiny home master.
The white refrigerator and freezer door blend perfectly into the bright white design of this kitchen. Low cabinets keep the upper half of the kitchen feeling open and spacious. Open floor space surrounds the island with a trio of barstools for an eat-in space. Light bounces off the reflective finish of the silver pendant lights in the center of the room.
One of the hottest trends in kitchen design right now is “tuxedo” cabinetry — or two-tone cabinets, usually a darker color on the bottom units with a lighter shade or white on top. Black and white is a classic combo, but gray and white or blue and white create a similar, but softer effect, as in this kitchen. “The two-tone color scheme complemented the stained original pine floors in this over-100-year-old home. And going lighter on the upper cabinets kept this smaller sized kitchen feeling light and open, without sacrificing storage,” says designer Carla Aston. You can get this of-the-minute look with one can of paint — if your cabinets are already white, just paint the lower ones.
White marble covers the open floor space of this spacious master bath. Matching marble tile tops the bathtub for a cohesive look. Low white cabinetry keeps the upper walls open to contribute to the open feel. A gorgeous wood cabinet with glass doors provides stylish storage. A gold chandelier if fixed in the center of the ceiling, glowing against the stark white background.
