This royal prince nursery, designed by celebrity nursery designer Sherri Blum, features baby blue, creamy white and silver to give it an ethereal appeal. An heirloom-quality pewter iron crib, an antique silver changing table and a beautiful chandelier complete the elegant, regal design.
This suite is aptly named Chandra Prakash, which means Luster of the Moon. The crown jewel of a 250-year-old pleasure palace constructed by Maharana Jagat Singh II in 1746, this suite was later used as the court of Maharana Bhopal Singh in the 1930s. Gilt moldings, sinuously carved marble and intricate ceiling frescoes add to the suite's elaborate decoration.
Neutral Traditional Home Exterior With Bright Blue Door
Symmetrical homes evoke a sense of formality, elegance and heritage. Honor tradition with a lighter-colored palette rimmed by darker accents. This home softens into its surroundings, while a bright blue door spotlights the front door's architecture.
A built-in hall tree in the mudroom of this newly built farmhouse features a low bench with cubbies perfect for storing boot trays lined with shoes. Simple coat hooks line the paneled wall, while a high shelf provides space for display or additional storage. The crisp white palette is punctuated by soft gray trim that updates and distinguishes the architecture.
And when the owners want to escape the sun for a little while? They only need to follow a gravel path to this secluded sitting area. Here, tall trees form a ring around the brick, creating a shaded spot to read or chat with friends.
Taking a step back from the bench allows for a full view of the patio's circular pattern. By laying the brick in this way, the landscape architects further helped this outdoor space feel nestled in its natural surroundings.
Carved wood benches and stools decorate the space, too, inviting guests to put their feet up and relax. With such a lush backdrop, this sitting area puts the beauty of the outdoors right at the owners' fingertips.
One of the garden's greatest strengths is its intuitive layout: guests enter off the kitchen, arrive at an outdoor dining table, then shift to a nearby sitting area for drinks before they end the night by the fire pit.
Just around the corner from the dining area, two wicker armchairs give the owners another spot to read or relax. With flowers all around and the warm glow of lights in the distance, the space is truly enchanting.
