A sense of elegance is the common theme amongst these 10 homes. Whether they’re big or small; excellent use of space, color and the items chosen for function and decoration give them a simple, delightful elegance. I’m only able to show a small taste of each home, so please visit the projects that catch your imagination and take a closer look. Just click on any of the links or images and you’ll be taken to the project.
This apartment is filled with unique and challenging shapes, especially the smaller spaces like the bathroom. Vertical elements frame the horizontal tub and decorative wall hangings make the space seem larger.
It’s quite imaginative to put the kitchen in a self-contained rectangular environment with dining and relaxation spaces outside on either side. Natural stone and wood colors work well together for a soothing feeling.
The luxury of large spaces helps convey elegance. Two floors of large rooms are interwoven with substantial natural plantings – even on the roof.
As always, Alice is masterful with her subtle use of color and textures to create an invitingly cozy and comfortable home.
A generous dash of textures and a variety of furniture and spacing volumes help make this apartment look high end.
Simplicity is part of the definition of elegance. A clutter-free kitchen and dining area with a comfy loft up above stay true to the theme.
A palette of elegant colors and the use of natural materials give this entire home an air of ease and relaxation. A dramatic vaulted ceiling amplifies the beauty of the kitchen and dining areas and provides a handsome focal point.
A fantastic location on a lake with great natural features is just the start. The home is beautifully designed to take advantage of the views from every possible room. Lavish use of wood with frequent touches of color keep the feeling warm.
A restrained palette here in the family/entertainment areas gives way to a more playful use of brighter colors in the personal spaces.
Just the right furniture in just the right amounts along with a muted palette including a splash of color, keep this large home open and elegant.
It’s your turn!
