Custom, Mark Rothko-Inspired Art in Blue Playroom
The homeowner loves art and has an extensive art collection, some of which inspired the designer's choice of color in this space. To complete the color story, designer Caroline Kopp personally painted two Mark Rothko-inspired paintings to hang on the display shelves, creating a graphic backdrop to the colorful space.
Bet you'd never guess this is a laundry room. On one side is space for laundry baskets and other essentials; the other half of the room features customized cabinetry for storing craft and art supplies and wrapping paper.
Plenty of crisp white molding, woodwork and paint look somehow modern when paired with Galasso's thrift store, floor sample and store clearance finds. Here a clever collage of mirrors leading up to her home's second floor makes use of painted white frames for design cohesion.
This Bend, Oregon home features incredible architectural detail and stunning design. The glass wall in the hallway visually divides the indoor-outdoor space, while the modern concrete flooring and accent stones appear as if the space continues onto the patio.
“Designed for wine lovers who enjoy entertaining often, this wet bar was installed in the dining room where they host dinner parties, holiday meals and entertain most of the time,” says designer Nathan J. Reynolds. “Next to the kitchen, it’s a convenient place for additional counter space for mixing drinks, plating desserts, or serving coffee and after-dinner drinks.” The design includes a Kohler sink, Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer drawers, and a Sub-Zero wine refrigerator. “Glass cabinets above the wet bar distinguish it from the rest of the workspace and showcase handsome glassware and collectibles,” he adds.
The wet bar, which features ample cabinet space and an island, is easily accessible for grabbing a cocktail on the way to the adjoining great room. The rich walnut cabinetry matches the kitchen cabinetry, giving the home a sense of unity.
A distinctive part of homeowner Holley Jaakkola's young, cool design style is how she incorporates modern brights and design with antiquarian objects and elements from the natural world as in this upstairs hallway/landing. Blowfish wallpaper and an assortment of shells, feathers and accessories inspired by nature's flora and fauna make this home feel like a cross between a hip Soho boutique and a natural history museum.
This simple white hallway becomes bright with color added by the two paintings on the wall. The piano livens up the area by putting a classic piece in an unexpected area, and the deep wood color pops against the stark white walls.
