Painting exposed ceiling beams black is more than an accent to a living space, it brings classic intrigue and an updated farmhouse feel to this transitional room. Using thick, textured material for the fireplace mantel adds a striking focal point that emulates the rustic nature of the dining table.
This family room features a diverse mix of fabrics, patterns and materials to create a globally-inspired, eclectic space. The deep midnight blue accent color on the ikat drapery is carried over to the hand-painted wooden plaques above the fireplace. The whole look is grounded with a large oriental rug and a classic-lined sofa. Accent furniture, including a unique hammered bronze metal coffee table, modern orange chair and classic wing-back chair complete the look.
This unique brown and white tiled fireplace adds depth and visual interest to the entertainment unit surrounding it. Multiple candle niches set into the side of the unit allow flickering candlelight to be seen from multiple vantage points in the room.
Natural light reflects around this beautifully simple, transitional kitchen, blending gray traditional cabinets, contemporary shelving and a shimmering white backsplash. Floating shelves are a perfect place to store extra kitchen items or grow an indoor garden of herbs and succulents.
This wingback chair is an old family heirloom that was re-invented. By staining the legs a deep espresso brown, using a charcoal velvet fabric and light cording, the chair was made relevant again. The classic lines of the chair combined with a piece of modern street art behind it create an unexpected, eclectic look.
Dark wood vanity enriches this traditional bathroom and creates a beautiful focal point. The chandeliers above each sink create an elegant feel for this traditional bathroom.
Large-scale tiles mingle with dynamic mosaic glass tile accents, turning this spacious contemporary bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Glass separates the shower and bathtub, allowing the space to feel open while soothing colors, textures and finishes – including the handheld shower fixture and rain showerhead – create a space built for ultimate relaxation. Floating shelves above the bathtub are perfect for storing extra towels for guests.
Unexpected metallic light fixtures create excitement in this modern bathroom and contrast with the neutrals of the stone floor and natural stone countertop of the sleek double vanity. Using brown glass tile to carry the color to the ceiling pulls the visual design upward, creating the feeling of spacious luxury.
This kitchen is a combination of traditional and modern elements. The cabinetry, granite and hardware are very contemporary, but with the infusion of a custom rustic kitchen table, fabric dining chairs and cornice boards, the space becomes cozy. The cornice boards were created in an unexpected bohemian patterned fabric with orange accents to add interest and pattern to the room. The hammered metal pendants hanging at varying height are copper on the inside and produce a warm glow.
This soft blue bedroom features a custom upholstered headboard with nailhead trim. The window treatment behind the bed and dramatic wall art, highlighted by the table lamp, extend the appearance of the room's height. A textured contemporary nightstand topped with metallic accessories complete the look.
The owners of this high-rise apartment wanted a functional, modern kitchen, so designers revamped the original galley kitchen to give them what they needed. The galley design provides counter space on each side of the room, allowing for plenty of prep space, while new upper and lower cabinets add storage. Outdated appliances were replaced with new, stainless steel versions. To get the modern look homeowners had hoped for, designers made use of the natural light that comes into the space from the bay windows overlooking the city. Then, they installed two-toned cabinets, a three dimensional tile backsplash and a modern breakfast area to provide the elegant, modern design the homeowners longed for.
The focal point in this kitchen is a custom double pedestal base table. This table was created to fit the space perfectly and fulfill all of the family's needs. With a bench on one side for the kids and more formal dining chairs on the opposing side, the kitchen has found the perfect balance between formal and casual.
