A 450-sqaure-foot screened porch was added to this 1980s home to create space for indoor-outdoor living. The porch features large sliding doors that connect it to the family room and a gorgeous stone fireplace for chilly nights.
The original building housing this charming bedroom was a barn, and the designers took special care to protect its original structure and details. The room includes space for games and movie nights. The window seat and trundle bed were a custom design; they fit perfectly into the dormer and provide extra sitting and sleeping space.
For the bathroom of a new home in Westchester County, NY, architect Daniel Contelmo created an elegant vanity that is as rich in storage as it is in style. “It’s packed with various storage options, equally divided for the couple who shares the bath,” says Contelmo. Among the amenities are a built-in hamper, a linen closet, plenty of cabinets and drawers, lighted custom-framed mirrors and a central shelving area that offers display space and visually breaks the long limestone counter.
A mix of seating creates areas for lounging and dining beside this pool in Chappaqua, New York. Ceiling beams, columns and lattice trim are traditional details that set the tone for a sophisticated space.
The poolhouse bathroom is equipped with a full shower for rinsing off after a swim. The green glass tiles are intended to produce a classic look that's not too formal.
The carriage house, designed to store and display an impressive car collection, is nestled among the trees. The structure, resembling an old barn, relates to its surroundings and provides an area for running the cars' motors outdoors and includes space for outdoor display.
A stone fireplace, fully equipped outdoor kitchen and comfortable seating areas create an open-air entertainment space that's ready for year-round use. The chimney is built from the same fieldstone as the surrounding retaining walls. Bluestone flooring continues onto the poolside patio.
Bright and spacious, this traditional kitchen designed by Daniel Contelmo boasts white cabinetry, a white paneled ceiling and large island with a marble countertop. There's ample room to dine, store and prep in this kitchen.
The sitting room was designed with long stretches of windows to let in sweeping meadow views. Furnishings are surprisingly glam: green leather armchairs, a velvety sofa and a gold coffee table.
Multiple seating areas make maximum use of this open, yet private poolside cabana in New York. Traditional architectural details tie the structure to the main house nearby. The finished surfaces of the cabana are wrapped with Versatex, a weatherproof PVC material, to ensure that it stands up to the elements.
