The dark wood cabinetry, neutral tile backsplash and beige walls help make this cozy kitchen a warm and inviting atmosphere. A built-in wine refrigerator is the perfect accompaniment to bar seating and provides additional countertop space for entertaining. Design by Beth Haley
This pint-size kitchen lives larger than it actually is thanks to a mix of materials and a receding jewel-toned paint color. Painted wood, stainless steel, exposed brick and warm pine flooring come together beautifully to create a functional kitchen that’s anything but blah. Concealed storage keeps it looking uncluttered and a multitude of drawers ensure spices and utensils are within easy reach.
Lots of ideas worth copying in this master bedroom from James Michael Howard. The artwork hung from thick brass chains are a new approach to displaying artwork and the mix of elegance and comfort in the heavy curtains hung at the bedroom entrance both soften and enunciate the room’s beautiful lines.
With vertical shiplap cladding the walls and sunlight pouring in the through the skylights the space ran the risk of feeling cold and sterile but aged wood floors set in a herringbone pattern remedied the situation. The reclaimed wood was salvaged from a 100- year old factory by a company called Authentic Reclaimed located in Georgia and add an old-world charm to the flexible studio.
Mirroring the black of the shelves is this painted feature wall. The wall is topped with a white, Cameroonian Juju hat on festive display. Combined, they provide the perfect backdrop to the sleek, modern fireplace that keeps the couple warm through the colder months of the year. A New York luxury, the bio-fuel burning fireplace was installed by Tanika and Brian to complete the look of the space.
The elevated tub is the warmest place on the deck to relax, unwind and check out the view of Whitefish and the Flathead Valley.
While the living room sofa is a striking shade of pink, the wood furnishings temper that pastel color. A close-up view of the coffee table showcases the wood elements that define so much of this home’s decor. The warm neutral is used in different shades throughout the home’s two stories, often layered in combination to give the space an even more warm, inviting feel.
Warm Wood Flooring
Adding one warm-wood flooring to the whole downstairs of this beach condo creates a cohesive look through the living space.
Ensure that outdoor hang-out zones are comfortable at any temperature by incorporating warm and cozy elements wherever you can. Here, oversized pillows on the rocker and piled on the deck invite leisurely lounging, and a plaid wool throw not only looks pretty, but offers an extra layer of warmth. Of course, there’s also the hot tub to really warm up!
Warm wood cabinets paired with dark granite and stainless steel countertops create a delightful kitchen combination. Recessed lighting and a delicate pendant light above the island brings in plenty of light to the inviting space. Sleek stainless steel appliances finish off the contemporary look.
The living room’s medium-tone prefinished engineered hardwood floor creates a warm and neutral backdrop for the space. “The best way to describe it would be greige,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “It’s kind of like a grayish beige mix.”
