The smooth dark wood of the cabinetry pops against the light, neutral marble tile of the floor and bright, white ceiling. The beautiful cherry-colored countertop perfectly displays the unique Asian vases and the flowers, bringing a small touch of color. In the background, a rectangle table with square stools can be pulled out for seating or stored easily against the wall.
Designer Elissa Russo creates this hallway focal point with a photograph in a burled wood frame to connect visually to the antique chest beneath. Alone, the photo would have been too small, floating in space above the heavy piece of furniture. But the trim and the carefully placed objects on the trunk create an eye-catching tableau.
A floating wood staircase with a cable railing leads to the second floor of this Asian-inspired home. The open floor plan allows for easy entertaining from the kitchen to the living and dining rooms, while colorful art adds interest and energy to the space.
A narrow hallway leads to this elegant Asian-inspired powder room. The bathroom features a freestanding vanity with Shoji-style doors, an arced onyx sink, a wood-framed mirror and a brown tiled accent wall.
Designer Marie Burgos uses an intricately carved wall decor, a carved statue of the Hindu god, Vishnu, and a portrait of Gandhi to create a calm and peaceful entryway. Neutral walls illuminate the details of the elaborate wooden focal point.
This hallway separates two guest rooms and ends abruptly with a window. It appears useless, but sculptures, including a spiderweb-shaped bronze piece, and orchids backed by an antique Korean chest transform the space into an interesting gallery.
