In this contemporary exterior lounge at condo residence in Brazil, the designer used an ecological fire pit by Construflama. The negative edge pool blends with the landscape, and plants such as bamboo and trees offer privacy and maximize the view. The project by designer Alex Hanazaki won a 2014 American Society of Landscape Architects award.
A trio of oversized pendant lights make a statement without taking up any visual space in this cottage-inspired kitchen. The expansive kitchen island is designed for the whole family to gather around with industrial-style barstools. Blue trimwork and cabinets reflect the surrounding lake views.
Adding just a few brighter accessories like gold and ice blue pillows, cream chairs and a white rug significantly lightens this room up. Going for a fresh, lighter look in your living room? Pay attention to wall color, curtains, rugs and mix neutrals and darks with brighter colors.
Natural Wood Country Kitchen With Built In Dining Room and Industrial Track Lighting
The large eat-in kitchen is efficiently laid out and balanced with cabinets on either end and plenty of storage options. The French doors are updated and the walls throughout are covered in dark-stained shiplap. Track lighting outlines the rectangular shape of the dining set up with built in bench seating.
Marble floors flow seamlessly into the marble walls, creating a cohesive design that is sophisticated and traditional. A glass door opens up to the walk-in shower area, which features a large soaker bathtub, open shelving and rainfall showerhead.
This kitchen is beautifully balanced with blue lower cabinets and an island paired with white upper cabinets and a clean white subway tile backsplash. Brass accents and hardwood floors bring in sunnier tones.
The open, contemporary kitchen is truly the heart of the home with space to gather around the stunning marble kitchen island and an integrated breakfast area. Comfortable chairs and banquette seating surround the soapstone dining table, while sleek wooden cabinets are clad in waterfall marble countertops.
I'm sentimental about family heirlooms and can't bring myself to get rid of long-treasured items, even when they are not exactly my taste. The ornate pink chair and settee in our bedroom were my great grandmother's and while they don't necessarily jibe with my other decor, their vivid color and quirkiness still make them perfect for a little sitting area.
