Serene is the word that springs to mind when looking at this bedroom. The color palette is simple—mostly neutrals with a few pops of richer color. Textural touches like the rug and bed linens are another inviting layer (calling bare toes!).
A bank of tall cabinets create an easy boundary between the kitchen and dining room. The fact that they stop short of the ceiling keeps the visual flow between the two areas and allows for maximum natural light to filer through.
Painted wood paneling warms up the small open plan kitchen that opens onto this cheerful seating area. A high ceiling and clerestory windows add to the room's airy mood; red chairs and a sofa wake up the palette with bold pops of color.
