I personally like the open risers as they lend themselves to so much creativity. The treads can be of a variety of materials such as even glass. However, it certainly does depend on the style and circumstances of the home and occupants.

Open risers feel 'unfinished' to me. And totally unsafe for kids.

I think it looks neat as is - perhaps a a small table beside the chair. It could be metal or maybe a ceramic garden seat in brown or tan. Next time you paint the walls, consider choosing a deeper neutral tan. Your trim would really pop! Your current paint is very pastel and appears to have a distinctly yellow undertone, but it could just be the photo.

We are spa people. It is tucked away in the yard under a metal roofed structure. Nothing better than listening to the pouring rain in Dec. soaking in the spa.

Not a chance. My dog is swimmer and swims until we pull him out half dead-tired if we can over-smart him; goes so far against waves, like ship, that we don't see his head anymore. Once we couldn't take him out from the lake for 6 hours. But otherwise I would have a pool, prefer activity to leisure.

The traditional gardens remind me of my mother and grandmother so I like that a lot. My garden is cluttered now but it is only my third year in my home and I am learning what does well here. I moved from Maui to the Sierra Foothills so it is a big change. I have planted tons of Hostas and am excited to see how they fill in what was once bare dirt in the shady areas. Those areas will not seem cluttered, thank goodness. That is the great thing about gardens, they are ever changing and what doesn't work can be moved or given away.

Farmhouse sinks tend to get a grey scratch or lines on them over time. Of course more vulnerable to chipping. But, like everything, if this is what you really want and it goes better with your design, go for it!

Thanks mollysmom123, call me after you've declutterd. I've always loved to decorate and love being a Houzzer. I probably missed my true calling when I went into nursing, or at least one of my (not so nice) supervisors thought so - at our annual office party, held at my house, I overheard her say to someone, " I think she missed her calling." I still get a good laugh when I think about that and I love telling the story!
@ beverlynn. Thanks, it is comfortable. Trust me, it doesn't always look that way. Usually the sofa cushions are everywhere, food all over the island - it's a lake house, and we just hang out, eat, hang out, eat some more. At dark, we're on the deck to wind down with a glass of wine or a cold one.

The majority of our clients request some sort of whole house automation, ranging from simple AV systems to complete whole house automation incorporating lighting, heating and security. One recently installed system allows the clients to control their components from their iPads or iPhones onsite and off. We love Crestron systems and rely on Todd Puma of The Source to provide and install all levels of Crestron automation systems for us.
The clients are happy and enjoy that fact that Crestron systems are easily upgradable and exceptionally user friendly.

I can see access for remote door locks as great for making sure kids never get locked out (as long as they have a phone to call a parent) and for someone selling their home to provide access for viewings (I know there is a version which plonks over the door lock mechanism rather than being hard wired / permanent). Also nice to switch heating or lights or air conditioning on if you are about to head home from work and the house is empty ... bit like a remote start for a vehicle which is a nice extra in cold winter or super hot summer climates.

Also, your kitchen would benefit from door height picture rail, and uniform ceiling and frieze, paintwork, because it would visually 'open up' the ceiling, and give you a frame work below to add some patterned wall paper...use a table cloth and large washable rug under it...in a pale shade...if you could bring yourself to do it, I'd reposition your kitchen cabinets..around the room, and do away with the island, which is blocking light, and paint the kitchen cabinets in white or shade there of..perhaps the flooring could be reused and sanded back to a paler shade, and re waxed..

Try this... pick up three (only three) different color chips from your local paint store that you are leaning towards. Invite a couple friends and family members over for dinner to discuss which one they like best. After all, they are the ones who are going to enjoy it with you. You could make a game out of it. If YOU don't like the color that is chosen after the kitchen is painted, the person who chose that color gets to repaint it in the color you would have picked.

What about a pretty taupe? Benjamin Moore makes a color called Sag Harbor Grey HC-95.
it's a color between your counters and your cabinets. It will make it less choppy looking. It will also make the room feel larger.

Hurrah to the chevron, which borders on tweed making it classic while still being on trend. It also plays nicely with the living room rug. Go wide as Cynthia suggests so that you don't turn an ankle passing one another on the stairs.

A fire pit would greatly add to the tone set by the running water of waterfall and stream, as well as any pool or hot tub in the yard. Not to mention, adding a walkway to follow along the stream would really top things off.

I am a tea nut, always have been. There's nothing worse than electric teapots. They never bring the water to a good rolling boil to steep your tea in! Especially depending on what type of tea you are steeping. Electric teapots always turn off as soon as they start to boil and cool down just as quickly. You can keep them. They will never have a place in my kitchen.

LOL about the motorhead. My hubby INSISTS on the garage being attached to the house. Every house we looked at, he talked about adding an attached garage. Beautiful intact 1943 Craftsman bungalow? Oh, we can break through the kitchen wall right here to attach the three car garage plus RV garage he wants to build on the extra lot. Um, no. We left that one go by even though I loved it. Couldn't see polluting it with an attached monstrosity. I keep talking about getting a remote extra garage building since our huge car plus RV attached garage won't hold his toys. He keeps trying to figure out where he can attach one to the house. :^p

I don't want my desk with all my business (bills to pay, manuscript of that novel I always wanted to write, correspondence, etc.) out where visitors can see and snoop. If I had the space, I'd set up an office for myself in a separate room. As it is, putting my desk in my bedroom is the only option at my new condo. Right now my plan is to have the computer desk to the right of the window, and create a work-surface under the window that can be used as a writing desk, file cabinets for legal documents, and general work surface if I need to pull out my sewing machine, or assemble a bird house or puzzle or whatever. I'm always much more organized when I have the space set up for what I actually do, not what I wish life was like.

When our children were small, I didn't care about "decor"...only wanted clean and somewhat tidy...we always had hand-me-down furniture. Our home was all about family time and child time...and who had TIME to decorate? Since we retired, I do have a terrific time looking for items to enhance our casual, comfy, still tidy home. And I so enjoy learning on HOUZZ the reasons for choosing a certain color or style furniture.

How about black, at least, on the bottom cabinets? I think your black appliances would blend in better. Then red on the uppers with a light gray wall.

If your fridge is black then black on both upper and lower cabinets.

No HOA, But our street has a history of being really good neighbors. There is a phone/email roster, four main parties a year, plus celebrations of special occasions, and we like to sit, talk and drink on a summer evening. Our traffic jams are ususally because some stopped their car to talk to someone walking and then suddenly there are about a half dozen people talking in the street. During the winter months those with snowblowers will clear the sidewalks and driveways of those who don't have one.

I did--in a vacation condo I owned for several years. Bunch of lonely, bored, busy-body old ladies made up the board. It was maddening. I wish I had been a full-time resident, because I would have put my money where my mouth is, become a board member, and involve myself in a way that I thought would be productive for everyone. At the first opportunity to sell without bringing any money to the table (thank you, mortgage crisis), I got the hell outa there and will NEVER live like that again. What. A. Nightmare!

I keep saying it on this site but, I'll say it again - if your cabinets are old, tired, and not in good shape, do NOT waste your money on expensive solid surface countertops. You can paint or reface and replace the counters but, you are just putting lipstick on a pig. Save your money and wait until you can afford new cabinets and counters.

With the tan background you need something that will pop. White plates or colorful plates to go with the rest of the room.

While coloured tiles look amazing, I would use neutral tiles for a few reason including this one: that you can transform your bathroom by changing the colour of towels, change up the shower curtain, change paint colour etc to keep your bathroom up to date while keeping the tiles neutral. You will never tire of your bathroom with neutral tiles.

Based on what you tell us, you definitely need a range hood that exhausts the air out from your house, because wood is a material that traps smells and moisture more easily. For a 60cm stove with an island mounting as we guess that's what you need, you should check our chrome model on our website http://www.elica.us/us/us/CHROME2

not sure what the material is actually..it was purchased by the contractor from the local hardware store, so i assume you will have no problems finding a suitable material.
