Hello Erinn,

Well, you could take the door off, yes, seriously, It would make your life easier. You might also think about installing a pocket door (or even just a surface mounted door that slides) to the linen closet. Or, you could remove the closet altogether, frame the remaining niche and place a pretty stand alone shelf in there. Take a look at a few Houzz pictures of inspiration :

I wonder if you could replace the toliet door with a pocket door. I don't know the structure of that area so you'd have to ask a contractor.

Honestly, I would yell at your husband and kids! ; )

Okay, don't yell---but sit everyone down and ask them, reasonably, to please help combat this problem.

Taking the doors off creates visual problems. Want to forever try to keep your linen neatly folded at all times? Yes, it was poor design, but there it is, and there are reasons for both doors to be where they are….

I think people need to participate (to some extend) in civilized behaviors in their own households! I think children should be raised to know they are expected to be thoughtful and careful about some things.

We all want to live comfortably and casually, but there are problems at which you must draw the line. ….Too much trouble to put the trash in the wastebasket? Throw it on the floor??? No, Never!!!! Even a two-year old observes and understands this.

...There are just some expectations necessary to maintain a standard of living.

Personally, I would draw the line above accepting your family can't be taught to shut the linen closet door.

I really think they are capable---just not fully aware. Not feeling any responsibility. Responsibility is something we all learn---it doesn't necessarily come automatically.

They don't leave the front door standing wide open, do they? This thinking just needs to be applied to your bathroom situation

Sorry---if you don't agree---It's your family and you can set your own rules. I'm not trying to be critical of your husband or family. Just giving you a different way to try to problem-solve.

Hello Heather,

That's too easy! Paint it! Honestly, paint it the same color as the remainder of your room and it will add tremendous texture and depth to the entire space. Over time you will not even read it as brick any longer. Take a look at a few Houzz examples for inspiration:

Robotic cleaners work well on both hardwood/surfaces and carpet. A good balance in a home creates noise and textural balance. My favorite floor was a ceramic tiled bathroom with heat plant underneath in a former Condominium I had. Always a joy when getting ready in the morning in the north country!

Hello beeflady,

All of the above are great quality sheets... we have purchased them for clients (and have some of our own :). It is really a challenge finding linen sheets that are inexpensive and they never seem to go on sale. you might check in with Company Store for items that may be on sale. Sometimes available at Williams Sonoma Home as well, but not usually on sale there. Best of luck to you and wishing you linen dreams! They are lovely to have on the bed,

Hello kimbersoo,

Several thoughts, in no particular order....

First, you might think about having slipcovers made for your entire chair. Pictures attached to explain. These could be sheer, which would add brightness and texture and interest, or could be a mini tonal pattern, which would also add brightness and texture.

Second, you might think about an area rug centered under your table to set the deep tones of the furniture apart from the floor.

Third, the drapery could actually be lower. At the moment it is not in line with anything architectural. Move it down to the top of the lower window and run it all the wall into the side walls, double or 2.5 fullness. This would make a bolder statement.

Fourth, you might think about painting again... I know... hateful, but you are unhappy. Think a different color all together... soft sage, soft blue, even off white, will provide contrast. Ben Moore Silken Pine or Coastal Fog or Elephant Tusk.

Fifth...artwork! You need something on the walls flanking the large hutch. Contemporary or stark... images below...

Sheer slipcover:
"Farmhouse Chic" Master Bath

Great drapery fullness, slipcover pattern a bit large, but it provides an idea; good tonal rug:
Brentwood Skyewiay

Textural slipcovers, tonal, adds texture:
Beach House

Tonal drapery and great artwork:
25,000 SF of Luxury

Great tonal rug:
The Vail

Great artwork:
Indian Harbor Residence

Tonal small print drapery, great artwork:
Modern meets traditional home in the suburbs

Hello nycroom,

Yes, a small room! But doable :) Pictures would be helpful, but in the meantime.... You might think about a bench seat / built in, and then a smaller round table, or possibly a small rectangular table and a few benches or tall backed narrow chairs. It can be done.

Hello crimsonky,

Not new trend that we are aware of here... most ceilings we've painted in the past few months have still been a shade of white. If you DO wish to paint a lighter shade of the wall color, you might think about a green tint to the white, like Ben Moore Silken Pine 2144-50 or Coastal Fog AC-1.

Cute space!! It may be a bit too tight in that corner for a more traditional chair, or even a fully upholstered chair, but you do have room for a tall accent chair. Attached are a few examples, look at form, not necessarily color and pattern. Another thought would be to introduce sculpture into this space. Again, a few examples.

I would add the chair if it would be useful. And I might add it anyway, just because the console is a bit short for that wall. The chair helps to balance it.

What I would encourage, as you think about finishing this space, is that you consider carefully the effect of each piece you add. For example, I considered Photoshopping draperies on your windows, then decided they didn't fit with the clean lines you have. So if you needed window coverings, I would recommend some kind of simple shade that allowed the window casings to show.

You've got a good eye and so far, there are no mistakes in your room. Trust your instincts, come here to crowd source your ideas, and you will end up with a stunning space.

Hello boggett2001,

Two thoughts.... for our clients, we generally suggest purchasing an old oriental runner from an antique store. First, they always add color and pattern where it is most needed; second, you won't be spending a fortune on an item that is already slightly worn, which means you won't yell at anyone when the apple juice, yogurt and red wine spill on it. They also tend to mask stains. Additionally, we have had success with long runners made from carpet tiles from FLOR. Take a look at a few examples from both suggestions to see if either would work for you:

A Light Grace
El Dorado
IMKDC Winner
Ranch Lite
Mid-Century Butler's Pantry

Hello kge728,

That is a very sweet paper :) Honestly, if you have had this sample for more than five years it has probably been discontinued. Wallpapers change SO fast and manufacturers discontinue anything that is not selling well. My best advice would be to take it to your local wallpaper dealer and simply search in the books for something as similar as possible.

Here are a few Seabrook examples that are similar, but not an exact match: https://www.seabrookwallpaper.com/products/default.aspx?t=2&styleID=19&subjectID=0&patternID=18268&search=a https://www.seabrookwallpaper.com/products/default.aspx?t=2&styleID=19&subjectID=0&patternID=20166&search=a

Here are a few Thibaut papers which are closer, but still not quite the same: http://www.thibautdesign.com/collection/old_collection.php?productID=3866&patternID=690 http://www.thibautdesign.com/collection/old_collection.php?productID=1407&patternID=199

Hello cbbrown,

You may want to speak with contractors in your area to see how the stucco vs the shingles weather depending on your heat and humidity levels. Both should wear fine over time, but it never hurts to conduct a bit of research.
As the house has an asymmetrical facade you might think about the shingle idea. Your tudor would transition quite nicely to shingles. Shingles are a very appropriate style for asymmetrical house plans, as well as the beach, as the Stick and Shingle style trend began in the late 1800's along the coasts of New England. Hardie makes a nice shingle, Hardie Shingle Side, which should provide you with a long maintenance life, but not the attractive weathering that the natural shingles would provide over time. Take a look at a few Houzz examples for inspiration:

2001 showcase

I am sure if you redo the exterior of your home in James Hardie it will look fabulous. There are many examples on Houzz. Here are some of my favorites: 22091 Majestic Exterior, James Hardie Siding - Plymouth MN, Kitsilano Heritage Home, Brookfield Exterior and James Hardie Siding (3).

By far the first exampl is my favorite. I really like how they use clapboard, shingle and board and batten. The colors are great, too.

Notice how the posts are treated in these examples. Hope you can get rid of the fake window dividers. Those large windows must bring in lots of light.

Good luck!

Hello valeriepro,

The stacked effect works in more urban or contemporary settings. It doesn't work as well with more traditional items, like your raised panel doors. The travertine color will be lovely, and the oversize tile will add great drama, but you may want to install as a standard subway. Take a look at a few other Houzz pictures for inspiration:

I just can not have the standard staggered subway - it is too common. I also hate the choices we have in appliances, I want something new but not faddish. I do like the oversized subway staggered. A touch of contemporary is just what I am after - changing to these Fulcrum handle/pulls made a big difference from the more traditional/cheap ones I had originally. Thanks Patricia for the vote of confidence on the stacked - It seems new and different and uncommon, like the oversized subway. I will chose soon one or the other. I really appreciate the input!

Hello button8883,

That is a lovely door color. Browns and blues work together quite well, but Rene has a good point... it would be best to be able to see the siding and shutter color. Take a look at a few Houzz examples with that color combination... or close to it:

While this is a very stately mansion, if you look closely at just the color palette, you will see each of the colors which you wish to utilize represented... the light blue (for your door) is found on the shutter, the tan (for your vinyl) is on the house and the deep brown (your shutters) is on the downspouts. Doesn't really matter where they are placed, they look well together:

Hello lbbc,

Interior or exterior? What are the other colors in the area? Are there many natural materials in your home or none at all? All of these can influence the selection of white for trim. There are, however, a few tried and true colors which are always available. Try Benjamin Moore's Navajo White (very creamy) or Dove White (OC-17) a little grayer. We use both frequently.

Hello Shelby,

If you ever decide to paint the brick, the sky is the limit on color, but make certain, certain, certain, that you work with a painting contractor that has an excellent track record in painting over brick. It can be a tricky substrate. Take a look at a few Houzz examples for inspiration of brick rancher color combinations:

The gray is quite lovely:

I agree with the viewers who suggested the warm colours for the siding and the trim. Match the grout in the brick for a seamless colour choice. If you paint your brick-which I like-you will have major maintenance throughout the years ahead. There are other options but start with the paint and then move forward-you will be very happy with the results. Good luck.

The vase is much too small for the room, certainly. You might try adding a few additional pillows to the sofas which are different than the drapery. Books on the table or a small sculpture would add a bit of texture to the room as well.

Vase is too small. You need to put it on the coffee table with a few other items and use a lamp in that dark corner. Loosen the curtain panels and let them hang straight. If long enough, they'd look better hung floor to ceiling, just kissing the floor.

The design of this home is inspired by Palladian Architecture. We consider it French Manor. It is not possible to reduce the width of the home without significantly changing the elevation. The grand proportions of the home are based on the overall width and the portico width in proportion to the height as well as the 5 across door layout. This home is 58 feet wide and 35 feet tall.
