Aged Brick Wall, Thick Curtains Lend to Urban Feel in Townhome
Thinset mortar, paint and stain were used to artificially age the brick wall in this Atlanta townhome, giving it a more urban feel. The thick, extra long curtains may be drawn to completely block out the natural light, adding to the moody feel created by the warm interior lighting.
Evergreens in custom ipe planters line this modern urban backyard and provide privacy from neighboring buildings. New York City fire code limits the amount of wood decking that can be used in terrace and roof design, so the designers turned this limitation into a design feature.
Loft Bedroom with Home Office and Floating Shelves
This home office space is a study in contrasts. White drapes and floating shelves pop against the exposed brick backdrop, while the sleek modern desk and traditional upholstered chair face off in a style showdown. A collection of decor and artwork add a personal touch to the eclectic space.
Mixing up the ceiling levels give this apartment a loft-like, airy feel. Huge windows let in tons of light and a streamlined metal-and-wood staircase with lots of open space doesn't block sightlines across the room.
This roof deck features a wide range of outdoor spaces, from secluded sitting areas to large, open flex areas. Cedar-wrapped planters and posts do double duty, camouflaging pipes and vents and gracefully dividing up the roof.
The landscape plan of this brownstone's backyard left lots of open space for the kids to run around in. Neutral-toned seating blends in with the bluestone patio and gives adults a comfortable place to relax and entertain.
The flat projection aluminum awning over this balcony makes the space feel like an additional room. A metallic coffee table is positioned between two gray barrel chairs and a reclaimed wooden bench, while a metal wire railing encloses the space.
