Main Living Space
The shared public space at Smithfield Cottage makes use of the home's original design features like an ornate Chinoiserie wooden mantel that includes two nooks for lamps. Asian details were a common motif in the Victorian era, with the opening of China and Japan to the West, and designer Glenn Wallace has played up that historic feature in contemporary Asian elements throughout the home.
To give his guest bathroom bold, graphic impact, Chris had the walls covered in a brown and white pattern wallpaper from Schumacher called Balusters. Altogether the wallpaper and installation came to $1600.
Meticulously designed with special attention placed in the tiniest of details, every surface was considered. This condo is full of luxurious textiles, rich color palettes, attractive textures and a daring mix of old and new.
With spartan simplicity and a soft neutral palette, this bedroom creates a soothing retreat. Visual interest is brought in via texture: the stone accent wall, built-in wood nightstands, even the carpet.
This wooded 3-acre site overlooks the rocky shoreline of Lake Superior. The 2,000 square-foot cabin cantilevers out toward the water, with a 40-foot long glass wall facing the spectacular beauty of the lake.
This master bathroom is as peaceful as can be. In the corner, a large walk-in shower looks as light as air with glass walls and a window. There's a delicate soaking tub set up on a marble platform. Clean-lined benches and drawers are a pop of contrast, as well as handy storage.
The large walk-in shower features floor-to-ceiling subway tile and is grounded by soothing gray tiles. Sliding glass doors create an open, airy feel. A rustic cabinet provides closed storage for toiletries and open shelving for towels.
Style abounds in this Asian-inspired bathroom in shades of turquoise and brown. White tile with turquoise accents makes a unique and stunning statement in the shower, while the dark brown vanity and turquoise and brown cornice at the window add drama and depth to the space.
The living room has a sprinkling of Asian influences that give it unique flair. A bright red coffee table with intricate wood cutouts is especially handsome; good thing it sits in the heart of the room!
Mirrors give the illusion that this quaint Japanese-style garden is much larger. Here, one reflects a stone pathway through a Zen garden. The sparse plantings work as a backdrop rather than a focal point.
