Modern Open Plan Kitchen with Cozy Breakfast Banquette
This open concept kitchen, dining and living space allows for inclusive cooking and dining thanks to a cozy banquette nestled into one corner. Wood cabinets extend to the ceiling to maximize storage, while a pair of slatted wood pendant lights provide task lighting above the island. Pops of teal and yellow continue from the kitchen into the wide-open living area.
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
The master bathroom is big on personality, if not on space. The concrete tile floor is meant to evoke the look of a folk art quilt. The vanity and mirror are pretty as a picture in robin's egg blue. And shiplap walls match the paneling used throughout the house.
If you have solid but unremarkable builder-grade cabinets, the simplest route to a high-end look is adding some height with crown molding. Interior designer Sarah Macklem of The Yellow Cape Cod tackled this project in her own kitchen with striking results.
