To make what was a juvenile, childish girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, its walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents. Now the designer-caliber room is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents.
Contemporary Kitchen With Stainless Hood Above Island
A stainless steel vent hood hangs above the island stove in this contemporary kitchen, and stainless steel appliances are built into the sleek woodgrain cabinets. Heavy drapes peel back to allow natural light and bright color from the outdoor plants to stream into the neutral-hued space.
Mother and baby will enjoy the view from the window as they snuggle in this comfy pale gray nursery armchair, with a white vintage decorative chest placed conveniently nearby to hold a petite adjustable lamp and a charming bunny alarm clock.
This unique home office provides an unobstructed view of the outdoor park by using glass to create the desk. The green Eames chair mixes perfectly with the modern design and blends in with the floor-to-ceiling window.
A dramatic entry to the garden features large native and tropical trees to help hide the view of the property from the street. Horizontal fencing, sculptural palms and large masses of tropical understory all help to create the sense of a lush, expansive entrance.
