A narrow nook built into this master bath features small glass shelves to store makeup, nail polish and other small necessities for the bathroom. The reflective vanities, countertops and large mirrors visually expand the space and highlight the ocean-inspired shower in shades of blue mosaic tiles.
Rustic Living Room With High Ceilings Feels Warm, Inviting
Reclaimed wood paneling balances out the height of the ceiling in this living room, ensuring the space feels cozy and warm. A large stone fireplace and comfortable furniture also contribute to the inviting atmosphere.
Kitchen Opens to Mediterranean Outdoor Living Space
The connection from the kitchen to the outdoor living area is an integral part of the design. The windows above the sink bi-fold to each side and completely disappear to seamlessly connect the spaces. Cream kitchen cabinets are paired with white countertops and a farmhouse sink for a clean yet warm look.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers John Colaneri and Anthony Corrino replaced the claustrophobia-inducing wall with a knee wall, making room for the new kitchen peninsula with sleek, integrated appliances.
Sleek, Contemporary Kitchen With Eat In Bar Seating and Natural Wood Details
The dark natural wood ceiling beam and matching wood base of the bar standout against the polished white fixtures of this kitchen design. The bar space is anchored to a column and set up with three metal barstools under a pair of pendant lights with an industrial flair. A chevron tile backsplash subtly decorates the room.
Designed by Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture, a wood-burning fireplace was cast in place of concrete with a board-form finish. Its covered position protects it from the summer winds in its Vermont setting.
A custom bar wall unit graces the open layout for the entertainment areas including the living and dining areas. Wood lower cabinets contrast with the white walls and upper cabinets. Mirror was used as a backsplash to create a sense of depth and reflect the interior lighting. To the right, shelves, storage and an artwork display provide further function to the unit.
Contemporary Neutral Living Room with Gray Built-in Bookshelves
The original built-in bookcases flanking the fireplace were retained, echoing the arched detail found in the doors and entryways. The bookcases and trim are painted in ash gray, providing soft contrast with the newly painted white walls.
Contemporary Playroom Features Teepee & Chalkboard Paint Door
What kid wouldn't love his or her own teepee! Striking and bright colors create a lively environment for this fort-among-forts. Benches double as tables and pillows also work as seats. Kids have easy access to books on a nearby shelf, keeping them organized and not underfoot. A door covered with erasable chalkboard paint provides space for drawing over and over again.
Designer Gail Drury combined traditional sage-green accents and ivory cabinets, along with contemporary materials and conveniences, to bring an updated look and feel to this charming kitchen. An eclectic mix of wood finishes in the island and barstools further add to the kitchen's collected-over-time appeal.
The overall vision for this home's spaces was modern farmhouse, so designers chose a beautiful oak hardwood floor to run throughout the main areas of the house. Then, they brought in a lot of white and marble, helping to make the spaces feel timeless and classic. Finally, warmth was added to the home through gold and black accents and wood details that really brought the rustic farmhouse feel to life.
