Cottage Kitchen With Seashell Chandelier & Beadboard Island
This neutral cottage kitchen features shiplap walls, Shaker-style white cabinets, a white beadboard island with wood countertop, a seashell chandelier, and a breakfast area with banquette and black table.
Classic Furniture Creates a Room That Can Grown Up with Its Owner
The homeowners wanted a room that could grow up with their little boy, so designers chose timeless pieces of furniture and base linens for that specific purpose. Designers took liberty to make the room more fun with the artwork, throw pillows and other decor they brought into the space.
On both sides of the home's elegant, antique fireplace and mantel, designers stacked coffee table books to add a pop of color to the space. For the finishing touch, each bench was given a white chinoiserie lamp and graphic art to complete the funky design.
Wall panels break up the conventional structure of the master bedroom, adding dimension and flexibility to the space. A fireplace and two armchairs make a cozy seating area; the bathroom is behind the half wall.
Countryside Estate Kitchen is Adorned With Earthy Blue, Green Backsplash
A mix of earthy blues and greens offers an unexpected twist to the traditional tile backsplash in this countryside estate kitchen. A pot rack hanging above the island turns the homeowners' beautiful copper pots into a beautiful display.
This peaceful bathroom features a glass enclosed shower framed with gray and white marble tiles that continue along the bathtub. A cloud-like design decorates the tiles along the side of the bathtub, while a bronze Buddha sculpture and white orchids sit upon a double sink vanity.
Elegant, Contemporary Kitchen With Light Cabinetry and Industrial Chandelier
An elegant and contemporary look is created in this kitchen with the use of light wood cabinetry, neutral colored walls and sleek white countertops. A glass-enclosed industrial-style chandelier adds to the elegance.
A black leather armchair with nailhead trim is a bold, eye-catching piece in this eclectic sitting area. A smooth stone table features a mixture of table decor that adds vibrant color to the space. A large framed poster adorns the exposed brick accent wall, completing the eclectic feel of the room.
The neutral living room is a perfect collection of simple furniture and elegant details. The sofas and chairs used in this space are simple, stylish, elegant and durable-perfect for this growing family of four, while the elegant chandelier and minimalist decorations keep the space from feeling too cluttered, making this area of the home the perfect place for the family to relax and unwind together.
In the dining room, designers created a space combining a neutral color palette with traditional furniture for a new take on a classic design. For pops of color, they used red and hues of blue, adding a traditional rug to complete the space. Large French doors let in plenty of natural light to keep the room bright, but neutral curtains were hung throughout to allow the homeowners to control the light and ambiance of the space.
In one corner of the back wall of the homeowners' son's bedroom, designers installed a built-in desk, giving the room's occupant a space to work and create. Decorated with fun, anime art, posters from his favorite band, his favorite books and sports trophies and a small file cabinet for storage, this desk space is the perfect place for a teenage boy.
Living Room Embraces Wine Country Vistas, Wabi-Sabi Tradition
Glass doors slide to open the inviting living room up to the exterior deck, which enjoys views of the surrounding wine country of Sonoma County. The homeowners also maintain a home in Tokyo, and the Japanese tradition of wabi-sabi, or the art of embracing imperfection, is at play in elements throughout the home, such as the stacked stone feature wall surrounding the modern fireplace.
