A beautifully designed staircase that blends old and new. The staircase uses thick wood slab treads that seem to float on the white painted steel stringer. This metal look is a industrial modern and possibly could be made a bit more elegant with larger posts, or incorporating wood to the rails/posts.
This U-shaped kitchen features light brown wood slab doors with a painted and distressed finish that adds texture. A lively mosaic tile onyx backsplash and neutral countertops finish off the look of the space, while simple wooden stools provide space for casual seating along the countertop.
Dark wood cabinets pop against the putty-colored paneled walls in the kitchen in this welcoming country cabin. Thick slab countertops and large chrome pendant lights help balance the visual weight of the oversized timber doorway leading to the adjacent two-story living room.
Urban sophistication is at its pinnacle in this modern bedroom where a wall of windows takes in the city view. A wood slab partition wall behind the bed doubles as a headboard and a convenient room divider.

From floor to ceiling, the entire dining room features rustic, exposed grain wood. Strong statement pieces, like a navy blue buffet, mirrored chandelier and even a simple bear portrait, are used to break up the wood. The comfortable dining room is made of a wood slab table, gray bench seats and slipcovered armchairs.
Add two simple reclaimed-wood slabs, and presto! This recessed niche, just inside the backyard door, becomes a mudroom. Barker Freeman Design Office architects needed little more than the shelving and a few hooks to create an ideal setup for removing shoes and stashing flotsam. Keeping the wall color the same as in the rest of the room allows for continuity, but the paler hue on the surrounding wall helps to define the space.
Illuminated for the evening, this two-story contemporary home features an exterior of wood shake and white board and batten siding. Concrete slabs separated by narrow strips of grass make up the driveway.
