The original 1970s house was constructed on a series of telephone poles cantilevered off the canyon floor. The basement is transformed into a contemporary media room with comfortable black sectional facing a large flatscreen TV. A striped area rug adds visual texture underneath, while sliding glass doors lead out to a sleek outdoor living area.
In this stunning dining room, rich brown walls combine with green upholstery for a look that, when paired with artwork depicting a natural landscape, feels earthy and inspired by the outdoors. The sleek dining table features bench seating or dining chairs so guests may choose according to their preferences.
Home Office With Built-In Bookshelves and Television Insert
To meet her client's storage needs, designer Claire Paquin created this sleek home office for two using wood paneling and built-in bookshelves, cabinetry and desks. Even a large flatscreen television found a home as an insert on an unoccupied wall of the room. An area rug in light blue and orange completes her functional design.
Warms woods are used on the ceiling and to create chic built-ins that provide storage for the homeowners' favorite books and artwork. Gray carpet with a subtle graphic design provides a neutral backdrop for the brightly colored furniture.
Dining Room Credenza Reflects Creative Color Choices
You can view designer Ana Donohue's unique color sense by zeroing in on the reflection in this dining room's mirrored sideboard. Shades of blue and orange in different patterns and textures add drama and sophistication to the space.
Rich, dark colors pair with soft candlelight to create a dramatic ambiance in this contemporary dining room. Three pendants are hung in a row, forming a sleek, linear chandelier that coordinates beautifully with the rectangular dining table.
A touch of Hollywood glamour in this home theater transforms the traditional entertainment room into a center for family fun and activities. Spotlights set the scene and comfortable white chaise lounges provide a soft space to watch a movie.
This sitting room is the epitome of style with boxy armchairs, a cool light fixture and a large fireplace. Dark walls with mirrored panels add visual richness and depth to the room that's just off the master bedroom.
Open-Plan Living Room With Modern Glass Stair Railing
A glass staircase allows light to flow through this open-plan living room. The glass-topped coffee table mimics the glass railing to unify the spaces, while streamlined furniture creates a sophisticated sitting space.
Dark brown hardwood floors ground this open, bright dining room and kitchen. The sleek wood table is surrounded by black leather chairs, while simple pendant lights decorate the space. Large windows provide stunning views of the outdoors.
A wall-mounted fireplace makes a dinner gathering more intimate and cozy, and the stone facade brings a natural touch to the modern gas fireplace. The warm, inviting look is complete with soft lighting, rich walls and comfortable seating. A neutral area rug and light hardwood flooring anchor the space.
Prior to the renovation, the dining room was isolated from the kitchen and seldom used. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri removed a wall to unify the spaces and create this open and inviting dining area with a beautiful farmhouse table.
