White Transitional Open Plan Kitchen With Barstools
One look at this breathtaking white kitchen and kid-friendly is not the word that leaps to mind. But durable quartz countertops and an open-plan, easy flow layout makes it a surprisingly practical space.
From the moment guests pass through the gated entryway and make their way up the gravel path to the main house at Peacock Pavilions, they are transported to a magical world of lifestyle blogger Maryam Montague’s making, and it all begins with the main room. Like every room at Peacock Pavilions, this expansive chamber is filled with wonders from all corners of the globe. The white walls are the perfect backdrop for Montague’s colorful collection which mixes modern furnishings with antique and modern pieces from Morocco, China and India. The arched doorway on the far left leads to the hotel’s own souk, a small but stunning shop that displays a selection of good curated by Montague to support her non-profit organization, Project Soar (http://www.projectsoarmorocco.org/).
Small Patio With Seafoam Blue Striped Rug Under Woven Bubble Furniture With Yellow Throw Pillows
In a small outdoor space, an outdoor rug can play multiple roles, creating a seating “island” as it does here, adding color and style, and making the area appear larger thanks to the introduction of an overall pattern. Designer Annastasia Mitchell chose this rug carefully for its seafoam blue color, which repeats the apartment’s interior color palette, “providing a sense of visual flow,” she says, and to repeat the horizontal pattern of the louvered windows.
Through the main parlor the grounds open up into an amazing vista dominated by the pool at its center. Vestiges of the former olive grove are still in evidence as trees ring the lounge areas around the pool. At the far end of the pool is a lounge area - complete with jacuzzi - that is perfect for afternoons spent sipping mint tea.
An undulating tile pattern in a range of soft blues and grays creates a strong focal point in this long, narrow bathroom. White cabinetry, white walls and a pale, modern countertop give the space a clean, fresh vibe that takes advantage of the room's natural light. A long, framed mirror is functional and stylish.
Midcentury Modern Seating Brings Definition to Seating Area
To help define the sitting area in the midst of this large space, designers started with a neutral rug. Then, they brought in a blue, Midcentury Modern sofa to add seating on the wall side of the space and two oversized, pink Midcentury Modern chairs on the window side to allow light to flow through the seating and into the main entertaining space, helping to create that open feeling in the design itself.
In the renovation of this master bathroom, designers relocated the two sinks to one wall and installed them in custom cabinetry to create more of a cozy, furniture feel. A new freestanding, soaking tub invites pampering.
The main living space of this casual yet contemporary home on Lake Austin is entirely open concept with rugs helping to delineate different areas. Sliding glass doors on both sides of the residence make it easy to entertain indoors and out.
