The curved sofa was one of the design starting points for this adorable, safari-themed nursery. It's the anchor for a sitting area in the middle of the room, then was added onto with a kid table and a teepee.
Consider designing a pair of mirrored rain gardens to flank a central walkway. By the second growing season, these beds will sparkle as lush gardens filled with shrubs, ornamental grasses, sedges, corkscrew rush, perennials and evergreens. A stone spillway directs rain water runoff from nearby hard surfaces into the rain garden basin. On the lower side, an overflow spillway and drainage pipe shifts rain water runoff to nearby storm sewer channels when heavy rains fill the rain garden to overflowing. Including an overflow spillway helps ensure water doesn’t backflow to swamp your home’s foundation.
The neutral color scheme of this contemporary living room feels glamorous and chic. Matching cream sofas and white dressers add symmetrical order to the space, while a modern glass and metal coffee table adds a refined touch.
Traditional elements like a stained, upholstered chair and furniture-style vanities blend with a sleek glass-and-tile shower and freestanding tub to create a master bath with rustic-contemporary charm. Dark hardwood floors are an unexpected touch and ground the space.
Upholstered walls, a large custom area rug and new media seating adorn this space. A section of this newly renovated space is separated with a slanted glass wall that separates the media room from the workout room and also aids in acoustics in both spaces.
Once closed in and dark, this newly renovated second floor landing is now light, bright and open. It is part office space, part reading room, part hangout area for the family to plan their day's activities. Custom, built-in book shelves house games, vintage first edition classics, family mementos and objects d'art, and the desk provides a space for reading and writing, adding extra function to the space.
