Wall of Windows Creates Bright Foyer

In the foyer, a wall of windows from floor to ceiling brings in plenty of natural light making the home feel bright and open. Even with the large space, designers made the entrance of this home feel a little more intimate with simple, warm furniture that brings the home to life.

Wood Added to Home's Ceilings Adds Warmth and Design Continuity

To create warmth and continuity throughout the home's first and second floor spaces, designers added wood to the ceiling of the spaces. This addition softened the home's neutral design and created a more "homey" feel throughout the design.

Glass Doors Provide Seamless Access Between Indoor and Outdoor Spaces

In the rear of the home's entrance, designers added sliding glass doors to the back of the house revealing access to the back patio. This allows the homeowners to transition seamlessly from one entertaining space to another.

Functional Kitchen with Tons of Counter Space, Food Storage Space and Organization Options

This family needed plenty of space for food prep, food storage and organization, so designers created an open plan, eat-in kitchen that had all the features the homeowners needed to create a functional space. Cabinets and countertops span the back wall of the room, providing plenty of counter and cabinet space, while two commercial sized, French Door refrigerators add tons of room for food storage. The final touch in this lovely kitchen was the over sized kitchen island with lower cabinets on three sides and a large, marble countertop for additional storage and work space. The island is even wired with electricity to make the feature even more functional.

On either side of the fireplace, storage was added with a set of modern cabinets that can be moved in case the homeowners decide to rearrange their family's space.

Gray and White Sitting Room with Built-In Heater

In the sitting room, designers created a bright, yet cozy space for the homeowners and their family. The painted shiplap walls and ceiling keep the space feeling bright, while the wood beams in the ceiling and the frames of the chairs bring warmth to the room. For an added bit of color, the chairs were given gray cushions and the fireplace brick was painted gray to create a focal point in the space. The heaters in the ceiling add to the warmth in the space and enable it to be used on even the coldest of days.

Gray and White Bedroom with Private Sitting Room

In this bedroom space, designers wanted to keep the space feeling clean and bright like the rest of the home, so they kept the color palette neutral and warm with a subtle, gray and white look. For a little extra comfort, a sitting area was added to the room and is separated from the main bedroom space by a curtain that adds privacy to both spaces.

Small Guest Bathroom with Neutral Color Palette

The clean, neutral color palette in the small guest bathroom reflects the natural light from the large window to the rear of the space. This gives the illusion of a larger room.

Warm, Neutral Bedroom

Double Mirrors Make Master Bathroom Vanity Feel Larger

In the master bathroom, designers wanted to lengthen the feel of the vanity, so instead of installing one large mirror, they opted for two smaller ones. That way, the homeowners will have the option of getting ready at the same time.

Versatile Outdoor Entertaining Space

The rear courtyard of this home was designed with everything in mind. With two lounge areas and a cozy dining area, this backyard space gives the homeowners a versatile outdoor entertaining space.
