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.
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.
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.
Textured Wallpaper with Gray Accents in Sitting Room
In the sitting area, textured wallpaper adds dimension to the space, while the gray trim and sofa bring unity to the space. As a finishing touch, designers added a gray and cream rug to complement the room's dominant colors.
In the dining room, the homeowners needed a space that could accommodate their many friends, so designers installed a bench seat that could do just that. The wraparound bench is upholstered in comfortable materials and accented with colorful pillows, while modern chairs provide additional seating. The word art on the wall is perfect for a kitchen, creating a double meaning, while the modern light fixture finishes off the space.
The design in the living room was kept elegant and simple so as to complement the large space, rather than compete with it. Large sliding glass doors allow in plenty of natural light, while the bookshelves add elegant display spaces. To complement the light walls, designers created a custom patina to paint onto the floor rather than staining it.
The home's large dining room has seating for eight, and, with a large window and a neutral wall to reflect the space's natural light. To add warmth and personality, designers brought in two sets of artwork behind glass. To complete the space, curtains were added to the windows to help control light and add color to the space.
