Handsome Home Office

A stately, gray built-in bookcase serves as the focal point of this stormy home study. The surrounding trim sports the same glossy gray used on the bookcase, for a cohesive look. The pale, weathered wood ceiling and textured dove-gray wallpaper serve as a bright contrast against the dark gray details throughout.

This handsome kitchen brings a whole new meaning to fine dining. The space is fit for a king with its regal black-and-gold island, barstools and range hood. Pale gray cabinetry acts as a foil to those bolder elements.

Smoky Sophistication

This richly detailed master suite features a mix of smoky silver, deep blue and plummy tones drawn from the watery, abstract mural above the bed. The high-style bedroom features layers of luxurious silk, satin, velvet and faux fur accessories that deepen the dimension, and intrigue, of the design.
