Craftsman Style Front Entry
Stacked stone walls, a wood planked ceiling and lantern sconces create a warm, welcoming front entry. Patterned glass on the sidelights and transom window gives the front door a distinct Craftsman look.
Shades of dark and light brown fill this beautiful Prairie-style living room with warmth and sophistication. The coziness of the space is a striking contrast with the wide-open, sweeping views outside the window.
Home Exterior: Howard Hughes’ Summertide Nevada Estate
Summertide, the Crystal Bay, Nev., estate once owned by billionaire Howard Hughes, sits on 5.5 acres along Lake Tahoe. The estate has 500 feet of lake frontage, a 2,518-square-foot main house, a 1,343-square-foot guesthouse and a separate four-car garage. The property has only had one other owner since Hughes.
The earth-toned kitchen is designed to reflect nature's colors and blend the indoors and out. A pair of French doors with sidelights make up most of the east wall of the kitchen and bring in a dramatic amount of light. The doors open out to the backyard, which the homeowners use every day.
Roomy, Rustic Kitchen With Hardwood Floors, Coffered Ceiling and Bonus Seating Area
This large craftsman kitchen boasts, among other nice finishes, a beautiful hardwood floor that carries through to a sitting area opposite the kitchen island. Paired with the exposed beam ceiling, the floor makes a big impression on visitors. This kitchen arrangement takes advantage of a wide expanse to provide plenty of seating and gathering options. The center bar in a painted finish complements the dark natural finish on the wall cabinets.
Rich brown Craftsman-style cabinets pair with soft green countertops to create a warm, inviting master bathroom. Large mirrors help to visually expand the room, as well as bounce light around the space.
Craftsman-Style Chef Kitchen With Lantern Pendant Lights
