In the dining room, the homeowners needed a space that could accommodate their many friends, so designers installed a bench seat that could do just that. The wraparound bench is upholstered in comfortable materials and accented with colorful pillows, while modern chairs provide additional seating. The word art on the wall is perfect for a kitchen, creating a double meaning, while the modern light fixture finishes off the space.
Although most mudrooms are linear, this one by Anthony James Construction makes great use of an odd corner near the entrances to the home's garage and backyard. A wraparound bench seat features ample storage underneath, while hooks stand ready for purses, jackets, backpacks and more. The 1970s Dutch door adds a nostalgic top note.
Subdued colors inside shine a spotlight on the razzle dazzle outside: the home's wraparound waterfront views. And the living room doesn't stint on comfort. A cozy built-in bench tucks up next to the fireplace.
To create the bright space the homeowners wanted, designers needed to take advantage of the natural light that issued through the French doors and windows opposite the table, so they opted for a soft, yellow color to anchor the space and reflect the light. Then, they chose a bright green fabric for the wraparound bench seating to add even more brightness. To finish the design, bold throw pillows were added, tying the space together.
This spacious backyard area features an umbrella-covered dining area and fire pit with wraparound cement bench seating. A dark brown pergola extends from the back of the house, providing shade for an outdoor sitting area.
