Raised Garden Beds
In the edible garden also designed by students from University of Michigan, galvanized corrosion-resistant troughs with round ends create raised beds for tomatoes, basil, dill, nasturtium and more edibles. Holes were drilled into the bottom of the troughs to provide adequate drainage.
The master bedroom walls have a faint blue-green color, similar to sea glass, that provides a soothing backdrop for the black and white accents used throughout the space. On the white bed, a pair of green decorative pillows with a geometric pattern pick up the wall color.
Enjoy the View
To the left of the TV wall, three large casement windows looking out to the backyard bring in lots of natural light. Underneath the window sits a midcentury-style chest flanked by two elegant side chairs with bonded leather seats and silver nail-head trim.
Vanity and Mirror
Classic modern chests with a warm pecan finish, chrome handles and sleek lines serve as stylish nightstands that offer storage on each side of the bed. The windows behind the bed have relaxed Roman shades with rounded bottoms that bring some softness to this room with lots of straight lines.
While the strong pattern of the geometric ceramic tiles with a low-sheen glaze makes a statement, the guest bathroom's simple black, gray and white color scheme gives the space a cohesive look.
The steam shower with tempered glass and an anodized brushed nickel frame has strong straight lines that make it a good fit for both classic and contemporary spaces.
Stylish Pedestal Sink
The powder room’s white pedestal sink has a deep V-shaped basin and a contemporary style. It’s paired with a mirror that has a linen white wood frame with a catalyzed conversion varnish that offers a durable moisture-resistant finish.
Both the living room and dining room have a softened color scheme with the ceilings and walls painted the same shade of green-gray and window trim painted in a similar tone. "The trim is actually two shades darker, but when you see them together, they look like they're the same," says designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
A 1950s record player console that still plays local radio and old records was found inside the house and incorporated into the design of the screened porch. On top of the console, two textured table lamps in antique stone ivory with brushed aluminum details and beige linen shades illuminate the porch at night.
Plaid Papered Walls
A washable gray tartan plaid wallpaper adds pleasing pattern to the garage, and reflects the collegiate location of this Ann Arbor home. The garage also includes a retro-style pedestal fan with oil-rubbed bronze tripod legs and a satin nickel finish to cool down the space on warm days.
