White Rustic Bedroom in Martha's Vineyard
The bedroom of this stylish, rustic Martha's Vineyard retreat features a whitewashed palette, built-in window seat niche and loads of storage space. The peaked, beamed ceiling is painted white to create an open, airy feel. Ample windows usher in the sunshine.
Frameless wooden book shelves, a sleek wooden dining table and leather-clad chairs are both modern and organic in style, blending the two design approaches used in this dining room and the rest of the California home.
Influences of rusticity, comfort and modernity are combined to create a highly-functional entertaining kitchen. A central island includes a second dishwasher and sink, extra storage and plentiful work space. Teak countertops and shelves, chestnut flooring and European-inspired fixtures add soul while skylights, high ceilings and the spacious setting are utilitarian and contemporary.
Comfortable furniture, from the cozy sectional and Barcelona chair to the floor poufs and stools, combine to create a hangout spot for family, kids and friends. Three massive pendant lights from Noir pull the space together, while drawing the eye upward toward the gorgeous woodwork.
The window seat in this rustic, yet luxurious bedroom frames a view as pretty as a postcard. The Martha's Vineyard home features farmhouse details and soft, pale finishes that give it a dreamlike quality. A sitting room and patio connect to the bedroom via pocket doors.
Throughout the house, the designers manipulated size, materials, surfaces and textures to achieve a balance that would fit with the natural setting. The use of native stone and timber maintained a connection with the surroundings and emphasized locally-sourced materials.
Scandinavian Master Bedroom With Eye-Catching Fireplace
The modern fireplace is centered on a wall of windows and French doors, creating a striking contrast in this bright white master bedroom. Exposed wood beams add a rustic note, while a chic gold chandelier brings in a touch of glam.
A stone fireplace is accented by a rustic wood mantel and hammered gold vases. The living space opens up to a cozy bar area, complete with warm brown cabinets, barstools and cool, contemporary pendant lights.
Living Room: Georgian Mansion in Chappaqua, New York
The large living room combines very different colors and patterns with natural wood and stone details for a look that's at once both rustic and refined. Sky-high ceilings help bring an open quality to the space.
Sixteen-foot vaulted ceilings and clear story windows make this great room seem even grander. A combination of modern design style with rustic elements decorates the space to create a particular look that appeals to a greater audience.
