Tour This Chic Contemporary Home With Art Deco Details
White Contemporary Loft Living Room and Iron Chandelier
High ceilings dramatically increase the spacious, open feeling of this white contemporary living room. A large iron chandelier elegantly lights the space.
When he moved into his 2,000-square-foot home, Chris Wall had no plans for a major renovation. Of course, that was before designer Lauren Coburn stepped into the picture. Lauren immediately saw the home's potential and convinced Chris to let her take the reins.
Designed in the 1920s, this building was already brimming with character. Unfortunately, the home also came with many mechanical and electrical issues which didn't make for an easy makeover. One of Lauren's main objectives was to get the home up to code and make the space more accommodating for Chris, who at 6 feet 9 inches was having to constantly duck in short hallways and door frames. Lucky for Chris, Lauren was able to raise the low ceilings on the second floor to their original height of 6 feet 10 inches.
Contemporary White Living Room With Bird Art
Cathedral-high ceilings and a wall full of windows instantly set an airy, bright tone in this contemporary living room. The furnishings are kept minimal, and the strict black and white color scheme helps contribute to the unfussy feel.
Once the ceilings were raised, Lauren worked diligently to create a home that catered to Chris' height and design style. White walls, ceiling beams and perfectly scaled furniture were all part of her plan to create a home that complemented Chris.
White Marble Bathroom With Glass Walk-In Shower
Floor-to-ceiling white marble seriously amps up the luxury factor of this incredible spa bathroom. A glass walk-in shower and white wood vanity offer every amenity and storage solution.
In order to cater to Chris' style, Lauren put a heavy focus on lighting. "When we gutted and redid the kitchen, we added small cans which related to the added beams throughout the kitchen," explains Lauren. "We used a chandelier in the dining room and added track lighting and pin lights to highlight the beautifully restored original ceiling details."
White Transitional Open Plan Kitchen With Coffered Ceiling
All-white decor keeps this transitional open plan kitchen and living area feeling fresh and light, while dark wood elements like the hardwood floor help ground the space. The windows are one of the beautiful original details the designer kept.
In the living room, a 6-foot-wide chandelier steals the show, highlighting the brilliant ceiling detail, which is original to the home but needed to be restored. After the redesign, art-deco details pair beautifully with Lauren's contemporary vision, while the intricate ceiling became her favorite feature in the home.
White Stairwell and Armchairs
A lovely curlicue wrought iron railing gracefully frames this stairwell from the upper floor down into the contemporary white living room. Subtle black and white detailing throughout the space helps unify the decor.
