As seen on Restored by the Fords, the bathroom of Steve's personal apartment in Pittsburgh, PA. Steve and Leanne restored the industrial warehouse and created an urban apartment. Restorations included sleek black tile to give the bathroom a masculine feel.
This Upper East Side New York City terrace is the ultimate outdoor living. A contemporary wood-and-glass pergola covers the long dining table, which enjoys prime seating for the flatscreen TV. An open outdoor seating area is surrounded by a lush garden and has stunning views of Manhattan.
Even on an open terrace in a city setting, it’s possible to create a feeling of intimacy. Here, designer Magdalena Keck used perimeter plantings — a combination of evergreens and climbers in simple wood boxes — to soften the edges of the space and block exterior views. “We chose glass and steel for the furnishings to echo the city structures,” she says, “and to connect the inside of the apartment with the urban landscape outside.”
This dining room's industrial-chic style is the perfect dinner party conversation starter. Designers paired a table with a thick slab top and a mechanical-inspired base with button-tufted chairs and a picnic-style bench.
The enigmatic image looms large over this contemporary urban dining room, creating a dramatic focal point on a dark accent wall. A modern glass-topped table and citrus-hued upholstered chairs are tucked beside window overlooking the city.
