Beyond offering a place to mix drinks, a wet bar can play an important design role in a home with an open layout, linking the kitchen workspace with the entertaining areas of the house. Here, designer Amy Darooge used rustic materials to create a coherent style throughout. She chose distressed wood cabinetry, a copper sink and faucet, and “the material on the counter is walnut with a live ledge,” she says.
A soothing neutral palette and modern design, this master bathroom features a double vanity in bleached walnut and a neutral stone shower with a glass enclosure. Inset medicine cabinets in the mirrors maximize the space and give a streamlined look.
A dramatic change in this kitchen's makeover was the rethinking of an awkward partially-vaulted ceiling. The solution? Close in most of the vaulted area and make a barrel vault over the arched window. Dark stained walnut beadboard draws the eye to this unique feature.
Bright touches of orange -- working together with golden walls and ceiling -- create a warm and balanced small bathroom. The walnut vanity is substantial and striking and features eight drawers for ample storage space, plus a white basin sink. Slate floors add subtle tones of cool, forest green to the room.
Designers wanted to create a cool entertaining space for these homeowners, so they installed a unique 14-foot onyx marble table with a stainless steel inlaid vertical grain. Rich, walnut cabinets were put in place to complement the decadent marble, while six stainless steel barstools add a touch of modern flair to the space.
