This custom built-in settee resides in a space typically slated for bookcases. Since we had enough storage and this is an entertaining family: why not more seating? I also imagined this corner being the perfect spot to curl up with a good book, with a cozy fire going and a fave snack. I specified this piece be upholstered in white to blend in with the walls and also not compete with the sofa.
The modified floor plan incorporated what had been a porch at the rear of the house, enclosing the space and turning it into a combination office and laundry room adjacent to the den. The two spaces are separated by a pony wall and integrated open shelves that are visible and accessible from either room.
Contemporary Neutral Breakfast Nook with White Bay Window
A signature highlight in the renovation is this breakfast nook just off the kitchen, with bay window and wooden table custom built by Clint Harp. Another special feature is a set of antique doors (left) with vintage hardware installed on the new pantry.
The formal dining room also includes a built-in bar, complete with exposed brick for added texture. A black-and-white painting of the couple's child is showcased above and complements the geometric wall treatment.
Down the hall, guests will arrive at a spacious sitting room. Here, they can choose from several comfortable seating options and admire a custom light fixture from Casa Zeta Italia, which is made of steel and fabric. Floor-to-ceiling drapes emphasize the room’s height and also allow for privacy at night.
The distressed leather club chairs pair with a glam bar cart that lead into the kitchen and breakfast room. Black-and-white peel-and-stick tiles make a contrasting statement for the floor, while brass chairs surround the contemporary white table. A gallery wall of art fills the space from floor to ceiling.
A small home office, featured on HGTV's Design Star, is staged in front of a large picture window. The bright red desk is inspired by an architect's drafting table, and adds a splash of color against mint green walls. A classic desk lamp and molded armchair complete the look.
This home office strikes the perfect balance between good design and functionality. The clean crisp lines of the furnishings against the walnut wood keep it sleek and sophisticated, while the earth-toned leather chair adds warmth.
Designers added a blue-gray wall to this space in order to create a divide between the new living and dining rooms. The existing carpet was removed and natural hardwood floors were installed, in addition to a mustard yellow area rug and stainless steel dining table. White and brown geometric curtains frame the dining room window.
Open Design Dining Room And Kitchen With Dark Table, Coastal Chairs With Blue Seat Cushions and Exposed Wood Beams
The beautiful, bright white kitchen connects in an open floor-plan to a dining space for a spacious, eat-in design. Coastal wicker chairs with bright blue cushions lighten the dark dining table. Exposed beams compliment the warm wood details decorating the space.
