relaxed, sophisticated, feminine and youthful - future for Kate as a teen
like the pathway - staggered squares and rectangles amid ground cover between garage and bed with purple crape myrtle from driveway to backyard
love the rustic table and sloping linen chairs - the hydrangeas and french door add too - English Country or Paris?
love the chairs and the pillows and ottoman fabric - also really like the wood in the basket on the floor next to fireplace
love all the light - like the lines of the couch and chair and patterned pillows and chest/coffee table
Beige cabinets are a nice alternative to bright white. Everything is still crisp and clean looking, but a little less severe.
zinc or soapstone countertops
A long hallway leads to the garage, back deck and laundry room. "Lots of guests come through this hallway, so we wanted to dress it up and make it special," Riker says. "There are plenty of hooks for beach bags, towels and hats, and places to kick off and stow your flip-flops. We made it extra long, added lots of windows and used tumbled travertine on the floor."
grayish-green stained cabinets - little more eclectic but with a classic feel
use Corian "Rain Cloud" as a durable alternative to carerra marble in a classic white kitchen
love the classic cottage/industrial look - LOVE LOVE LOVE the porcelain floor tile that looks like hardwood laid in the herringbone pattern - this is Sequoia Coal by MS International http://www.msistone.com/porcelain-sequoia/coal/
love how the plantings nestle up to the curved walk and create a sense of mystery and privacy for the covered area...would love to create a similar feel through fairy garden and over to covered porch swing where playhouse is now
interesting treatment with old lath used to panel a focal wall - for the restaurant?
love the tile
replace small areas of lawn with liriope, periwinkle or other ground cover instead of grass
love the dining space with windows around 3 sides - a skylight with views of the stars makes it even better
like the comfy seating with small cocktail tables by the kitchen island in lieu of a table and chairs
love the ground cover and rocks in lieu of grass in a small space
like the wood ceiling, beams with stone fireplace and built ins
like the bergere chairs
like the bergere chairs
change Kate's walls to a nice plum color like this accent wall - will look nice with cream furniture, could still do pale pink/gray/pale aqua fabrics for bedding (or white and cream with other colors as accents)
if did desk between two bookcases in sunroom like the thick front edge look; hang TV on wall that can also be used as computer monitor (cast from laptop/tablet?)
office nook under the stairs
love this layout! kitchen is completely open but the columns/color of cabinet, ceiling material and crown molding create just the right amount of separation too
mix and match chairs and tables
like the colors and layout
more great color and the countertops are delicious
1500 sq ft retirement house - great floor plan - on a beautiful wooded lot with lake view with walls of windows all around - loft has 4 beds for kids and grandkids
view from the kitchen
1500 sq ft retirement home with as much porch space as indoor space
retirement house backyard
the meandering stone path and fireplace beckon
like the board and batten paneling and painted wood ceiling
only way I would do a vaulted ceiling is with these kind of beams - wish the beams were a little darker and the floors were a little lighter so there was more continuity between floors ceilings (and tied better to the dark window)
As a cost-saving move, the designers installed scored MDF instead of wood paneling in the master suite. “Once painted, it’s hard to tell the difference,” Riker says.
