Multiple building materials and styles come together to create this contemporary kitchen. A medium-toned walnut wood makes up the cabinets and kitchen island, while lighter-colored hardwood is used on the floors, creating a varied, natural feel. Marble and concrete also play into the island, which was custom-built in an angular shape.
Gilded accents lift up a modern living room and counterbalance the weight of the dark wood walls and floors. The paneled space features a walnut wood credenza with hand-blown glass crystal disks and a steel frame and hardware. Geometric gold sconces, globe-shaped table lamps and a watercolor framed in a repurposed antique gilded frame complete the vignette.
The friendly and inviting feel of this southern colonial home is seamlessly carried into the kitchen. The rich umber of the ceiling beams, walnut island top, and quarter sawn oak floors combine with details like the bronze lanterns and bridge faucet to create a classic cooking and gathering space that is at once familiar and unique.
The round dining table acts as an extension of the living room. The design utilizes floor poufs and wooden blocks that double as extra seating. A large globe chandelier hangs over the custom walnut coffee table. Fresh greenery adds pops of vibrant color against the neutral tones of the room. Modern elements paired with a timeless, classic frame creates a beautifully inspiring place.
The raised ledge creates an in-ground design for the bathtub. A polished stone ledge surrounds the tub with walnut panels covering the step. The tub is tucked into the large bay window space leaving plenty of open floor space. Natural linen roman shades are motorized for easy operation and enjoyment of the ocean view.
The floors are a darker shade of walnut than the walls and ceilings in the bathroom of this loft guest suite above a horse stable. The honed, black granite against the lighter wood tones was selected by the designer to achieve a simple and elegant feel, which also grounded the space visually. A copper tub and sink blend with the color scheme while adding a touch of sheen.
The vision for this home office was a contemporary, functional space with room for the children to sit and read. The walnut cabinets and shelves provide a richness to the space and is the prominent architectural feature. The light counters add a crisp, airiness to accentuate the built-in wood storage and not deter from the color and patterns on the floor and accessories.
A black ventless gas fireplace was made more dramatic with a whitewashed porcelain tile façade in a brick pattern that spans from the floor almost all the way to the ceiling for a clean and modern look. A flat-screen TV with art mode that allows viewing of beautiful works of art placed above the fireplace has a customizable walnut frame that adheres with magnets and helps the TV blend with the rest of the room's decor.
An Italian serpentine walnut three-drawer commode, a Tuscan carved giltwood mirror and an 18th century English chinoiserie tall case clock are in the foyer designed by Jacquelynne P. Lanham Designs for the Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta. The black-and-white floor has a zig-zag pattern. On the commode are two gold Ormolu ornaments on lucite bases and a pair of 1930’s Chinese green hardstone lamps with lavender shades. Two 19th century regency-style chairs with an ebony finish are underneath framed original landscape oils by Tyler Colgan.
