Small Urban Deck With Privacy Plants
Even on an open terrace in a city setting, it’s possible to create a feeling of intimacy. Here, designer Magdalena Keck used perimeter plantings — a combination of evergreens and climbers in simple wood boxes — to soften the edges of the space and block exterior views. “We chose glass and steel for the furnishings to echo the city structures,” she says, “and to connect the inside of the apartment with the urban landscape outside.”
Ceiling beams made from reclaimed wood and a stone-framed door hint at French chateau style. An island with over-sized turned legs visually grounds the large room while cobblestone framing around the door add a classic cottage-style touch to the space.
Canary yellow paint covers the walls and the sloping ceiling in this contemporary New Jersey sunroom. Boxy woven seating echoes the lines in the modern area rug, while pillows in bold chartreuse and graphic patterns give the space additional punch.
Contemporary Dining Room With Striped Lacquered Table
A show-stopping table in lacquered stripes of red, silver, black and white creates a fun spot for a dinner party and a dramatic focal point in this New Jersey dining room. Eight Parsons chairs seem to float beside the table on acrylic legs.
Soft hues of beige, brown and orange stir a Mediterranean feel in this luxurious outdoor kitchen. A vaulted ceiling gives the feeling of additional space in this open-air room. A bar with granite counters and built-in grill creates a perfect entertaining spot adjacent to the cozy sitting area with a fireplace.
Graphic green wallpaper, wood ceiling and black furnishings complete this eclectic home office. A speckled area rug, green velvet desk chair and a mix of art add visual interest and personality to the space.
Magnificent cherry wood architectural paneling and detailing are the signature elements in this two-story library and home office. The wool area rug and comfortable leather seating anchors this room and the custom spiral staircase leads one up to the second-floor home office, which is off the master bedroom. The original oil painting is illuminated by the picture light above to call attention to it in the evening.
Contemporary Kitchen with Stainless Steel Appliances
Stackable stools and a hanging pot rack create extra space in this contemporary kitchen. The graphic lines of the glass tile backsplash are mirrored in the modern, glass fronted cabinets while the reclaimed wood table lends a rustic edge.
This small kitchen is packed with design detail. White dishes pop against dark shelves, playing off of the colors in the tile backsplash. A high-arc faucet, cooktop and dual ovens add a professional touch.
The vision for this ground floor sports room was to provide a comfortable space for the family while maximizing the seating for guests. Using the concepts of scale and proportion, the designers were able to accommodate seating for up to 10 people, which was far better than the five they could fit on the old sectional.
An enormous built-in storage unit makes this walk-in closet the best room in the house. A combination of drawers and open shelving offers versatile storage while a small window allows natural light to stream into the space. A white Chippendale chair and flokati rug add style to the already stylish space.
