An ascent on the modern staircase leads to the second floor landing with a direct view of the eye-catching laundry room accent wall. “I think that wall is really the key, we were looking at that space knowing most of the time in the laundry room that door is left open and you’re looking at something that is not necessarily lovely. In this case there is a great piece of local art hanging on the wall when the door is open and you see the beautiful stainless tile, so the first impression of that space is much nicer and more contemporary,” says house planner Jack Thomasson.
A floral-printed host chair sits at the head of this traditional dining room's table complementing the floral lamps and a circular chandelier above. The milky gray backsplash of the small bar area draws the eye into this room.
For a bathroom look that's as soothing as it is beautiful, these pastel tiles are a dream. Shades from pink to green are such a pretty pairing with the wood vanity; brass sconces bring in a touch of warmth.
Instead of traditional subway tile, TerraCotta Design Build chose an unexpected, slightly geometric backsplash for the kitchen. With its hexagonal shape, this tile adds serious visual interest to the sink.
Small Bedroom is Multifunctional as TV Room and Guest Room
A small, colorful third bedroom was created during the renovation of this midcentury modern home. A majority of the time it functions as a TV room. A sleeper sofa transforms it into a guest room, and a built-in shelving unit adds storage to the space.
In an effort to create a space that feels maximum open and easy, designers opted not to hang pendants over the island. Lighting comes instead from sconces and sightlines continue all the way out the windows and glass door.
This combined kitchen, living space and dining room are perfectly coordinated in this coastal design theme.
Subtle periwinkles, blues and seaglass tones dominate the space, even repeating the seaglass color on the island lighting, which was painted to match the color palette in the space and bring in a pop of color in the island area. Warm, toasty white oak shiplap was chosen to balance the practical floor tile that would take all the abuse from kid traffic.
The living room epitomizes the designers' signature, desert living look with rustic beams, a wrought-iron chandelier and clean, simple lines. Instead of the usual boxy seating arrangement, two curved sofas are a soft, graceful moment at the heart of the room.
