Before + Afters: Edgy Gentleman's Estate

Though soaring ceilings, custom built-ins and crown molding all made this home feel grand, the traditional interior simply didn't speak to the owner's style. So designer Minhnuyet Hardy stepped in, outfitting each room with masculine colors like charcoal, brown and blue that are a bit more tailored to the bachelor's liking. Black trim and statement lights nod to the executive's edgy design preferences as well.
