I'm someone who completely falls in love when they see wire in the cabinets, but then, when there is fabric behind it as well...? It takes away from what could become really bulky and overpowering cabinetry.
Have you ever seen anything more graceful? The small porthole window on your way down must look out onto one of the many great views of Long Island Sound.
This is quite a large kitchen but Ms Gatfield loves to cook and bake with her daughter so they need room for all the necessary accouterments. She has custom refrigerators and freezers too and wanted white appliances so that the kitchen was updated but didn't look too industrial.
Here is another great use for wallpaper if you have a ton of it around your house (like me!). Instead of painting the back of a bookcase, you could line it with different wall papers. Each space is a different little moment.
Disston made sure that there were plenty of windows throughout the house so that you didn't miss any of the great view. I love the color scheme in the master bedroom. The blues, reds, and creams are so endearing and comfortable.
If you read this blog you know I love traditional design so of course I love this home. I think it has a fresh updated look without looking forced though. I think it is important to see that in terms of fabrics geometrics are not the only way to liven up a traditional style. As much as I love the green trellis pattern that we see everywhere, these fabrics accomplish a similar goal. I was also happy that simply because this home was by the water, it wasn't covered in grass cloth and sisal (I probably would have loved it just the same though!). What do you guys think? Love? Hate?
