For a busy family, the pounded steel top of this breakfast nook's trestle table is practically indestructible and will patina with age. Seating is eclectic, comfortable and casual. Bowls mounted on the wall add an unexpected whimsical pop of color.
In this sophisticated dining room, elegant and unique lighting was realized beautifully by foregoing the usual chandelier in deference to an installation of five Regina Andrew "diesel" pendants, which add warm glowing light filtered through burnished brass chain fringe. The table accommodates 12 guests comfortably, and the grey-washed finish is both elegant and practical.
This whimsical living room uses a foundation of rich warm, layered neutrals, punched up with big color. It's the ideal place for entertaining, relaxed conversation and reading.
In this cozy living room, three awkwardly spaced windows were unified by dressing them with pleated curtain panels in a citrine and steel gray Greek Key pattern. Bright accent pillows bring punches of color to the predominantly neutral space.
The homeowners wanted this living room, like the rest of their home, to be family friendly, elegant, luxe and sophisticated, but with a sense of whimsy and fun. The space had to be equally comfortable and appealing for both kids and adults. The space plan offers great flexibility, with the large ottoman completely mobile and a small lucite lamp table that can be easily set aside for play dates.
In this family room, the built-in bookcases around the stone fireplace were originally crisp white and competed with the natural tones of the stonework. To help them blend more harmoniously into the space, they were painted charcoal gray. Large scaled, simply shaped accessories were chosen in white, chrome, mercury glass and reclaimed natural wood to contrast the dark shelves.
This eye-catching foyer uses dark gray walls as a base on which to layer a creative mix of colors, patterns and textures. A reclaimed wood console and driftwood planter bring in an organic note.
