Mt. Baker

Two simple renovations of this 1920’s bungalow transformed the function and flow of two of the most important spaces in a house; the bathroom and the kitchen. The owner wanted to update the spaces to reflect a modern lifestyle while respecting the house. By changing the flow and function of the kitchen it now works for entertaining and multiple chefs while the clean spare finishes keep it fresh and clearly modern. The bathroom was made even smaller than its original form in the renovation of the kitchen so every inch of space had to be used. By unifying the finish on the surfaces, using small modern fixtures, and with a simple glass partition the bathroom is minimalist, elegant, and timeless.

This is great. Thanks. Also found similar at rejuvination in different sizes and up to 100 watts., home depot, and lowes carry a 60 watt version for around 50 bucks.

You like the color you see in the photo, you my not like the color if you were in the actual space. The color that comes to mind the way it reads on my monitor is Sherwin Williams Jogging Path. You can purchase a small sample jar but be sure it is an egg shell or semi gloss a flat may read chalky.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Chandeliers That Bring the Drama
This funky little chandelier is a cool counter to the traditional, dark table and chairs.
Kit Pollard added this to 5 Design Lessons from Restaurants
5. Upscale casual is hot. The restaurant we went to the other night specifically called itself "upscale casual" - which sounds like an oxymoron, but it's actually a good description of what many Americans look for in their spaces - comfortable rooms that still look really nice.
Kit Pollard added this to 15 Popular Design Trends on Houzz
7. Clean color palettes. A surprising number of photos are of rooms that are bright, airy and very neutral.
The Lettered Cottage added this to Choosing and Hanging Your Dining Room Light
I love that this fixture looks like a flower!
This image has been one of the most popular on Houzz for quite awhile. I'm betting this light fixture deserves a lot of the credit for that.
The eye tends to seek out similar colors around a room, so if you already have a green centerpiece or other green accessories on display, place a bowl of apples nearby. The additional dash of green will balance the color throughout the room.
