Montage: 20 Bathrooms With Contrasting Tile Floors

Hopefully you’re not too overloaded with floor and rug posts. I want to forge ahead with all the Florida stuff while I’m focused on it. Last year we had the pink-tiled master bath (photo at the bottom of this bathroom tile post) reglazed in bright white. Very cost effective at $600 if you don’t mind the all white grout and tile look, which I don’t. They did the bathtub too. (Maybe I can have them in again so I don’t have to clean the rust stains.) But I still need new bathroom floor tile.

Unfortunately, they recommend against glazing the bathroom floor tile because it becomes glossy and thus too slippery. So, while we have pristine white walls and a white (if not slightly dirty) tub, we still have pale pink bathroom floor tiles and a pink sink in a pink Formica topped vanity. (More on that solution later this summer.) I’ve been browsing for inexpensive slip resistant tiles at Tiles4All, Overstock.com, Home Depot, and Wayfair. Other sourcing suggestions welcome.

On one hand, I’m tempted to do identical (but slightly textured) white square tiles with white grout on the floor, for the simplest look. On the other hand, I love a contrasting floor, and a color or pattern could be fun, especially if everything else is a consistent bright white. The other thought is to do big pieces of a natural stone, like slate, for a durable outdoorsy neutral effect. I’m taking ideas!

Here are 20 bathrooms with contrasting bathroom floor tiles.

Montage: 24 Rooms with Cork Floors (Plus My Own)

The cork floors have been installed in our Florida condo! And the walls are all a bright, sparkly white. So happy. The cork floor is amazing. It feels good under my feet (it’s not squishy though, more like a pressboard with a coating, like you’d find as the backing of a picture frame, as unappealing as that sounds), cleans well, and looks cool.

I was worried that the 1’x3′ tiles would read too traditional, but the look is practically seamless. There are a number of manufacturers of cork tile out there, in different shapes, colors, and finishes, though I chose the plainest one possible. (I wouldn’t have minded a lighter color, but this is probably more practical.)

The cork floor has the funky, almost unfinished loft look of the plywood floor I had been contemplating, but is much better in terms of feel and durability. The price was very reasonable. They even installed new sharp-edged baseboards. I’m thrilled. Thanks to Steve Gee/Tiffany’s Flooring for doing an impeccable job.

Design Diary: Hutker Architects Goes Graphic on Martha’s Vineyard

Hutker Architects coined a term for the style of home they’ve been busily building on Martha’s Vineyard for the past 25 years: “new regional vernacular.” Peter Cappuccino, lead architect on this project explains it as using traditional forms and familiar materials but applying them in new ways, while designing to suit a modern lifestyle.

Anne and Peter’s Vineyard home is a perfect example. I wrote about it in an article called “Vineyard Dreams” for the Cape & Islands issue of The Boston Globe Magazine on Sunday, July 20. I hope you will click through to read the story, as well as scroll down here for additional photos and notes.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

There are both water and wooded views from the steeply sloping site. Here, the deck, which connects the public spaces of the living room, kitchen, and screened porch, looks north. Here, the master bedroom deck has an amazing view towards Nantucket Sound. From the corner, one can see the steamship ferry come and go from Wood’s Hole.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

All the rooms enjoy what Cappuccino called “single width volumes,” meaning every room has at least three exposures. One ascends the stairs, enters through a single story space with a standing seam metal roof. To the right a two story space houses the kids rooms downstairs and guest suite, with a private stair. The two-story volume in the middle towards the back holds the master suite upstairs, also with private stair, and kitchen below. There’s also a family room behind that. The long room jutting into the foreground on the left is a double living room and dining room with cathedral ceiling. Decks and a screened porch run along the other side.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

Courtney Fadness, who recently moved on from Hutker, designed the home’s interiors using a high/low approach, using fun graphic pieces. The Standishes, who have three college aged kids, wanted the home to feel cozy, but with plenty of pattern and splashes of color. Fadness says, “Since it’s nestled in the trees, rather than on the beach, we could play with a more saturated palette than if we had been tied to ocean hues.”

A custom diamond pattern sisal by Merida is the base layer that runs the length of the huge room. A Moroccan-inspired dhurrie by Madeline Weinrib defines the seating area above. The sofa is a custom piece by Vioski, upholstered in a linen blend by Romo. It has a notch cut out on the back for a console table, so when you approach from dining room, you see shelves on that side. Fadnes says, “It feels more inviting, and its sculptural silhouette looks beautiful from all angles.”

Martini side tables in red by West Elm provide pops of color and the  Madison & Grow “Elizabeth” wallpaper in “Peacock on Shimmer” adds an additional graphic element and a subtle touch of teal. The Danish modern chairs with blue velvet upholstery are from 1st Dibs. The colorful glass lamp is by Tracy Glover.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

The dining room, which precedes the double living room space, is dominated by a live edge wood table with a steel insert and base that the couple found on 1st Dibs, along with a statement chandelier. The wood slat and metal chairs are outdoor pieces from Terrain, and the upholstered chairs add heft and height.

The Currey & Company “Bayside” chandelier is wrought iron hand-wrapped in abaca rope; a nod to the beach. She says, “The not too serious interpretation of a traditional form adds feminine curves; it’s a nice juxtaposition to the more modern and masculine table. It also helps fill the volume of the space, without feeling heavy or obstructing views.”

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

The wall on either side of the fireplace is painted teal, a color pulled from the Madison & Grow wallpaper across the room. The chairs have a nice back, so can be oriented towards the first or the second seating areas. Metallic gold dot pillow from Anthropologie.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

Deeper into the space, pushing out towards the view, is the living room’s second seating area. The sofa and armchairs are Baker Furniture, upholstered in linen by Romo and a nubby brown fabric. and The assortment of reclaimed wood coffee tables are from Anthropologie, and the arc lamp from CB2.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

The screened porch has sturdy teak sofas with indoor/outdoor cushions.

The kitchen is on smaller side, with a focus on the more practical aspects, The countertop is Caesarstone and the  the backsplash of stove is a river rock –painted cabinetry, tom Dixon pendants, the backsplash over the stove is a river rock, bringing outside elements in. The cabinetry have painted frames with frosted resin insets and the light pendants are Tom Dixon. The palette reflects the monochromatic contrast of white on dark found in several other places in the house.  The flooring in the entry and kitchen is budget- and user-friendly cork.

Martha's Vineyard Home By Hutker Architects

“Ribbed” by Ferm Living wallpaper in the powder room again shows the play of light and dark, and also brings in organic shapes. The sink looks like hammered metal but is actually porcelain. The homeowners found the mirror. A limestone counter sits atop a bamboo vanity that’s the same color as the bamboo floor. The Kohler single handle faucet is brushed nickel.

The kids hang in the casual family room, located behind the kitchen, to watch television.

Anne likens the experience of her airy master bedroom to sleeping in a treehouse. All the walls, as well as the cathedral ceiling, are painted pale blue, as it were a continuation of the horizon. Graphic rug by Dwell Studio.

The reclaimed wood bed and the reclaimed pine plank nightstands are from the Sundance Catalog. The large table lamps from Horchow boast striations that resemble layers of sand.

Montage: 12 Homes With Colorful Window Trim, Inside & Out

Oftentimes windows are overlooked when it comes to adding flavor to a design. It’s almost always white windows on the exterior, and usually the window trim is painted white inside too. Sure, sometimes they’re stained, and black window trim can be incredibly striking, but one doesn’t usually see an eye-popping orange.

Cedar shingle homes in wooded areas, like the Vineyard, might sometimes have forest green windows, meant to add interest, but blend with the surroundings. When we designed the house on the Cape, we specified Benjamin Moore “Baby Boy Blue” as our exterior window color. I knew I wanted turquoise, although I picked that specific shade in kind of a rush. It’s probably a tad too light and Caribbean-esque, but I love it anyway. (There’s a photo at the end of this post.)

When the construction crew put them in, the guys on the job, including the plumber, had something to say. Skeptics! Ok, the windows don’t necessarily blend, but I love them. Even though windows seem like an unsatisfying expenditure, I’ve learned that deciding between various window types can really make an impact on not just the design, but the whole feel.

I’m a proponent of true divided light windows — that means there are individual panes of glass between the mullions. There’s nothing worse than cheap plastic mullions shoddily attached to the glass. Awful. There’s a compromise you can get away with, called full divided light, if need be.

Inside, our window trim is painted white. (Actually, everything’s painted white, except for the ceilings in the boys rooms and guest rooms.) It’s possible to get an amazing look with a contrasting trim, though I haven’t figured out how to do it myself. (I tried in my very first apartment in New York, and let’s just say it was an epic fail.)

Below are gorgeous examples of brightly colored exterior window trims, along with some very zingy interior window trims.

Montage: 20 Reflecting Pools + Fountains

Ever since we worked on the design of our house on the Cape, I’ve been harboring desires for a concrete fountain. Not a round, multi-tiered monstrosity, or a mermaid spouting water from her breasts, but a concrete trough with a rusted steel spout. We didn’t do any fancy landscaping or hardscaping, save for a basic bluestone patio, but I still think about it. Here are 20 modern gardens that include water features, specifically reflecting pools, concrete troughs, and wall fountains constructed from Corten steel, and others in that aesthetic vein.

Montage: Cognac Colored Leather Sofas

We all know that a classic brown leather Chesterfield sofa can look quite dignified in a traditional library setting. Thinking of other types of leather sofa in rich luggage tones, one might imagine a Danish modern setting, or something quite Italian and sleek. But there’s an in-between. I actually wouldn’t have guessed that I’d find so many examples of cognac colored leather sofas so easily, and that they’d be in such tasteful decors, including Scandinavian interiors,  Brooklyn brownstones, modern houses, and bohemian lofts. These leather sofas mix as well with sheepskin as they do with kilims. Some are clean-lined sectionals, other a tad squishy. While most are in mainly white settings, many are mixed with deep reds, or yellow and green accessories. Here are 26 rooms with cognac colored leather sofas that are worth studying (and emulating). For shopping suggestions see: “Get the Look: 28 Leather Sofas in Cognac, Tobacco, & Caramel.”

Montage: 28 Hallways With Inspired Pendant Lights (In Multiples)

When I first started putting together my most recent post for the Lamps Plus blog, “7 Hallway Lighting Ideas,” I didn’t realize how helpful it was going to be. I’m a big fan of statement lighting, even before everyone had to have it. (I used a trio of pendants in a guest room on the Cape, two frosted and one clear; the electrician thought my order was wrong.)

A stylist once told me that lighting is like jewelry for the home. So, why has it not occurred to me to add interesting lighting to our dreary downstairs hallway? True, the ceiling may be too low for pendant lights, but anything would be an improvement. Must investigate.

In the meantime here are 28 hallways with lights in multiples. There’s an array of styles, from classic schoolhouse pendants and traditional lanterns to industrial cage lights, and others. I actually love all those red cords of the bare bulbs in the home featured in Dwell. And I love how the succession of glossy black drum shades in the offices of fashion label By Malene Birger looks so sophisticated. Also love the copper pendants in the Jean Louis Denoit-designed hallway. So many great examples here.

Montage: 26 Rooms with Wood-Clad Feature Walls

Today I did a roundup on Design Milk of a dozen contemporary feature walls. Here’s an expanded version of 26 rooms with wood-clad feature walls. The array includes large sheets of wood to cover walls, like the first one below, as well as horizontal and vertical slats. Some have a clean, smooth finish, while some of the feature walls are more rustic, having been created from reclaimed wood boards. Our contractor in Florida suggested that along with the plywood floor we want to put down, we should cover the main wall too. It’s a good idea.

Montage: 32 Brass Kitchens

Following up on my last shopping post 34 Brass Accents, here’s a roundup of kitchens with brass details: brass handles and drawer pulls, brass lighting, brass ranges and hoods, and even one with brassy cabinetry. Brass hardware could be a good way of freshening up a white kitchen. A lot of the kitchens here are black; while black and brass is striking, it’s too much drama for me personally. I would however adore a gray kitchen and would be happy to experiment with brass fixtures. I also love the way the brass accents look with the natural wood details on the island in the Brooklyn townhouse featured in Dwell. Have a look for yourself; would love to know your preferences. Also, have a look at my post on Lamps Plus, “5 Ways to Add Brass Lighting in the Kitchen,” which includes a roundup of some great brass light fixtures (it will be live at 2 pm ET today).

Montage: 30 Outdoor Showers

We’re heading out for the summer on Friday, the day after my son graduates from the Montessori school where he spent nine years of his little life. I cannot believe I am going to have a junior high school kid. Yikes. But first, summer . . . I don’t think I ever pulled together an outdoor shower roundup for you, despite my intentions. One of the highlights of our Cape house, as I know I’ve mentioned, is the bathtub. We also have a decent outdoor shower on a deck off said bathroom, overlooking the woods. I’ll add a photo to this post once we get out there. My in-laws outdoor shower is lovelier, with wisteria overhead and an ocean-view. Sigh. For now I’ll scroll through these to get in the mood.
