An accent wall in this "gothic glam" guest bedroom is covered in wallpaper from Iris Maschek. A ruby-hued bed adds a pop of color but keeps with the room's moody vibe. Lamps from Voila Gallery connect the space to industrial elements found elsewhere in the home. LIghting is dim, setting the tone for a show-stopping space with a modern gothic mood.

Mediterranean-Style, Lakefront Home With Breathtaking Landscape Design and Water Features
Landscape architect Jason Brownlee took one look at this lovely Mediterranean-inspired home that is situated at the end of a lakefront peninsula and drew inspiration from its radial core and natural surroundings and created a work of art in this outdoor design. Not only are the sculptured angles of the patio, walkway and railing reflective of the circular architecture of the home, but also in the masterful design of the infinity-edged pool and interlaced catch basins, giving this outdoor space a sense of magic in motion. The design shows passion with purpose and invites the homeowner to enjoy the outdoor pleasures of this home's dramatic but inviting character.
The new wooden stairs from the front door entry, Leanne wanted to keep the original wood color on the stairs but create a modern feel by staining the railing a black color, as seen on Restored by the Fords.
The aesthetic in this modern bedroom is "rock star gothic grunge with a modern twist." Custom mural wallpaper by Iris Maschek is recessed into an illuminated cove and framed with a custom silver leaf frame by Voila Gallery, becoming artwork in the space. The neo-Baroque Abigail Ahern light fixture above the bed is a masterpiece on its own.
This modern black and brown kitchen showcases a minimalist design, from the sleek, dark cabinets and concrete island, to the natural wood tones in the countertops, flooring and bar chairs. A pop of elegance can be seen in the counter-to-ceiling pearl tile backsplash.
