White Bedroom with Peach Canopy
A cheerful riot of colors is at play in this bedroom, part of a garage apartment. Peach and white sheer curtains set apart a canopy bed while soft green chairs and multicolored and ruffled pillows add to the bold design.
Modern Kitchen with Clean Lines, Striking Light Fixture
This modern kitchen features plenty of light and clean lines. The clean white cabinetry offers brightness that is reflected in the marble-top island. The square brass bar stools with white leather cushions provide seating that is both stylish and functional. A stunning design focal point is the striking modern light fixture.
This overhead shot captures the gorgeous design and comfortable planning of this stunning poolhouse. A large covered patio sits aside the home with a bar and dining area. On the spacious lawn, geometric pavers turn the grass into an artistic statement.
Patio with Interior Pool, Raised Deck and Statuary
Beds of drought tolerant shrubs and ornamental grasses, sand finished concrete pavers, statuary, a raised deck for lounging and other features bring a zen garden feel to this private pool and patio area.
This coastal chic living room features large framed art in a blue pattern that flows seamlessly to the wicker cushioned sofa with navy throw pillows and complimentary wicker coffee table. Two sturdy and matching blue side tables flank the couch with floor lamps on a neutral rug.
Carter Design opened up a wall and created a counter to eat at and enjoy the view to exclude the need for a table, as space was limited.
The bleached walnut was a material used on all the cabinetry throughout the condo to bring in an organic wood element that did not overtake the art. Jason Koharik's custom light and the vintage Bertoia chairs add just the right pop.
This home boasts a warm, sun-washed exterior and flat roofline for a classic Southwestern look. Bold colored patio furniture brightens the pool deck and provides shaded space for relaxation after a swim in the pool or dip in the hot tub.
Texture is the way to bring visual interest to a monotone room. Here, glossy surfaces like the dining table and cabinetry combine with leather, stainless steel and glass to give this all-white penthouse dimension.
“I love a bath at the end of the day, so I think Luke was channeling me in here,” says Miranda. He paired the fiberglass tub by AKDY with a floating vanity he designed that’s topped with black soapstone. Tall mirrors from IKEA look even sleeker with globe pendants hung low in front—since they’re see-through, they don’t obstruct the view in the mirrors.
Anyone who needs a quiet spot — whether Miranda’s preparing homeschool lessons or one of the kids is playing a computer game — can find it in here. Normally the wire shelves are filled with books and plants, but they got cleared out for an Advent calendar made of gift boxes, with a treat in each one. Ever the retro furniture fan, Luke found the military desk at a thrift store and the chair at a garage sale, then had it reupholstered.
One of Luke’s early visions for the house was a matte black kitchen. “It contrasts nicely with wood and makes the appliances blend in seamlessly,” says Luke. The cabinets and the island are from IKEA, and he got vintage green pendants from a local flea market to play up the hints of green veining in the black soapstone counters. Industrial-style counter stools from Craigslist provide the perfect place to perch with hot chocolate after playing in the snow.
Luke and Miranda got a king bed for the first time — their old place didn’t have the space — and it’s appreciated by everyone. When Luke designed the room, he was going for something unexpected. “I thought the ‘Love Always’ sign, which I had made as a headboard, was romantic,” says Luke. (Yes, it has a dimmer.) The rug, nightstand and dresser are vintage finds.
This spot off the kitchen, where both meals and schoolwork happen, is bustling all day long. Luke brought in pops of color with yellow chairs by Coavas and a wall hanging by local artist Kate Crowley-Gilbert. “I don’t like spaces that seem cold or sterile, so Luke gave every room softness,” says Miranda. Here it’s a round table (vintage) and a woven pendant (from Candelabra). The wood piece against the wall is a refurbished plant stand, found at Boise Vintage.
Everything about this gorgeous backyard, patio and pool was designed to evoke the East Coast's Hamptons. Pergolas provide poolside shade, while cozy furnishings and blue accents infuse the outdoors with a style all their own.
The floating concrete staircase is one of Luke’s favorite features in the house — shout-out to Clint for helping make it structurally sound. It’s spruced up for the holidays with cypress garland and black-and-white bows, while wrapped presents ready to be doled out to extended family do double duty as decor.
