Inspired by the classic homes of the Hamptons, this laundry/gardener’s room is spacious, with custom-designed, white-glazed cabinetry and dove-gray quartz countertops. Exquisite millwork is abundantly featured. Beautiful slate flooring flows throughout the space, adding rustic charm and enhancing the outdoor garden style.

Specialty Room

1st - VanBrouck & Associates Inc.

This rejuvenating spa was designed as part of an addition. It’s a quiet, peaceful place where time slows down and distractions can be shut away. The spa is equipped with a professional massage table, pedicure station, and a large steam room, as well as a private bathroom that includes a shower and dressing area. The space is exquisitely beautiful.

Conservatory / Screen Room / Sunroom

1st - VanBrouck & Associates Inc., with Luxe Homes Design + Build and Oliver Max Interiors

This classical conservatory is a timeless piece of architecture. An artfully proportioned structure of classic, white-fluted columns and a deep entablature define each window sash and support the lofty glass-and-iron roof. It attaches sympathetically to the brick “host” building, in traditional English style, and becomes a graceful architectural feature of the tranquil gardens that surround it, transporting homeowners to the English countryside.

Stacked quartz-clad walls surround this dark wood wine bar and wine cooler. Onyx countertops (not shown) are lit from below. The custom- designed bottle holders are darkened steel. Frameless glass doors separate the spaces, which are cohesively experienced together.

Library / Home Office

1st - VanBrouck & Associates Inc., with Luxe Homes Design + Build and Oliver Max Interiors

This refined library evokes a feeling of grandness, while retaining an intimate scale. The design concept was to create an elegantly classic space with a modern aesthetic. An heirloom rug and leather-bound books are juxtaposed with contemporary furniture. Custom-designed, finely-detailed black walnut millwork defines the two-story, barrel-vaulted ceiling (not shown).

Home Theater

1st - Tutto Interiors, with Millennium

This home theater includes full architectural details for the trim molding as well as the finish styling. The room had a support beam that couldn’t be moved, so the paneling had to be carefully thought through for the columns to line up correctly. There’s room for eight, and a built-in banquette seats an additional four for viewing and dining. A perfect space to unwind and watch a movie!

Powder Room

1st - CBI Design Professionals Inc.

Every detail packs a punch in this powder/bathroom, which has two intersecting barrel vaults for the ceiling. Although it’s small, it has a wonderful, dramatic feel. The ceiling and the textured walls provide a unique effect for a utilitarian space, and are offset by an antique-style vanity and vessel sink. The light fixtures reflect the owner’s passion for the great outdoors and give the space a transitional style.

Bath Up To 150 Square Feet


Photo by brad ziegler

1st - Corey Damen Jenkins & Associates

This guest bathroom was given new life thanks to the marriage of quirky wallpaper and matte-finished black tile. The vanity’s fluted chrome legs bring an Art Deco flavor to the mix, while dark bronze sconces and a bright chrome pendant prove that mixing and matching finishes can be hip and timeless. A silver leaf antique mirror is a classic partner for the Aquarian-themed wall covering.

This master bath features Italian-made textured laminate cabinets by Val Design in a rich espresso color, accented with cultured stone and quartz countertops. The tilework in the shower blends with the textures and colors used in the bathroom. The adjacent dressing area continues the use of the espresso cabinets, creating a seamless design between the master bath and the bedroom.

Kitchen Up To 200 Square Feet


Photo by john carlson

1st - Tutto Interiors, with Millennium

The driving force behind the floor plan in this kitchen was a 48-inch refrigerator purchased before the planning stage. Even though this is a tight space, the granite bar with the waterfall edge makes an impact, as does the eating area. The client wanted a sports bar feeling, so TVs were added along a nearby banquette wall.

Kitchen Between 201 And 500 Square Feet


Photo by James yochum

1st - Signature Kitchens

A structural beam dividing the kitchen space required an integrated design. The result is a marvel of dedicated spaces that function well, both separately and together. The beam and its partition created two unique features: a butler’s pantry and a graceful, vintage-style built-in hutch. The main kitchen space contains a tidy work triangle, casual counter seating, built-in dining, and a freestanding island, discreetly wired for small appliances.

Kitchen More Than 500 Square Feet

1st - Scavolini Store Detroit

The kitchen is the center of life on this farm — a place designed for warmth and comfort. The cabinets are gray oak veneer with a super glossy lacquer finish. Spotty granite countertops pick up the wood and cream tones used throughout the space, and also offer the homeowner extreme durability for her many get-togethers. Several windows let in natural light and brighten the gray tile floor.

This is a master suite to die for. It includes a "wow" entry; a functional and fabulous bathroom with heated floors; a coffee bar; his-and-hers closets featuring luxurious details, finishes, and lighting; and a totally custom bedroom with cozy suede chaises and a limestone fireplace. There’s a place for everything!

This master suite is entered through custom carved wood doors, salvaged from the original house, that lead to a round vestibule. The bedroom features high ceilings and a bay window looking out to a new pool terrace and the nature preserve beyond. The master bath features book-matched white marble shower walls, glass casing, base and crown moldings, metallic plated travertine floors, and custom vanities.

Contemporary Dining Room

The welcoming, neutral color scheme sets the tone in this dining room. The large, open space is the perfect canvas for the beautiful, custom wood dining table for 12. Cream-colored dining chairs upholstered with a neutral, square maze design complement the dark wood table and gorgeous hardwood flooring. An oversized, custom natural limestone fireplace along one wall adds warmth and comfort to the room.

This large, open dining room features architectural details that offer a great starting point for a one-of-a-kind design. The tall ceilings highlight exposed wooden beams with steel hangers that open up to a surprise eyebrow window. The rustic, hand-carved table offers a perfect spot for family gatherings, and the distinct host and side chairs in contrasting wood tones help keep the look casual and welcoming.

Contemporary Foyer

1st - Walter Herz Interiors, with Vogue Furniture

This beautiful Art Deco elevator foyer is enhanced by its octagon shape and exquisite mahogany panels. The gold leaf domed ceiling, with an antique chandelier and matching sconces, reflects onto the beautiful grain of the wood panels. One of the panels hides the opening to the elevator, creating an illusion of an all-paneled room. The custom-designed mirror and bench reflect the Art Deco period.

Traditional Foyer

1st - VanBrouck & Associates Inc., with Luxe Homes Design + Build and Oliver Max Interiors

This foyer combines the formality of a traditional foyer with the rustic charm of a hunting lodge. The rough-cut limestone, used on the home’s exterior, is carried into the interior to suggest age and permanence, and to create a backdrop to the elegant, elliptical stairway that sweeps gracefully upward. The solid stone wall creates a strong, masculine bearing that counterbalances the gently curving, feminine sweep of the stair.

Contemporary Living Room / Great Room

1st - Wendy Silverman, with Saroki Architecture and Mosher Dolan

This open-concept great room addition embodies modern aesthetics. Wide plank wood floors are accompanied by 18-foot-high ceilings with steel trusses. A stone fireplace, constructed of hand-selected Spanish and French limestone, encompasses a steel surround fireplace unit, and the modern furniture, featuring pops of color, contrasts beautifully against the white walls. A custom breakfast nook is upholstered in silvered leather.

Traditional Living Room / Great Room

1st - Vanbrouck & Associates Inc., with Luxe Homes Design + Build and Oliver Max Interiors

The design concept here was to create a beautifully ordered procession of spaces, from the entry loggia to the gallery and living room, and out to the rear loggia. An original oil painting by Richard Bogart hangs above the limestone fireplace, and sets the color palette and ambiance for the room. Dark-stained, hand-scraped walnut floors anchor the room, while a bronze and beaded chandelier floats overhead.

Children’s Room

This fun, whimsical children’s room features built-in beds under the roof eaves, creating a cozy place to snuggle and sleep. A niche at the head of each bed houses a reading light and a place to display favorite toys. Tucking the beds under the roof eaves opens up a large play-activity space in the center of the room, perfect for a child-sized table and chairs.

Apartment / Loft / Condo

1st - Dakin Design Inc.

The challenge in this home was to renovate the dated décor, stay on budget, and end up with luxurious, open, and clean lines. The home’s great architectural features were the focus: floor-to-ceiling bay windows, upscale millwork, and high ceilings. All were repaired and painted in a soft white, with contrasting silver gray walls. Polished silver hardware and lighting replaced tarnished metals, adding sparkle and contrast.

1st - Amy Miller Weinstein / AMW Design Studio

This newly constructed home flows seamlessly and is full of comfortable, stylish, and interesting spaces. The color palette is muted grays, with pops of unexpected color. Wall coverings, fabrics, furniture, lighting, and window treatments were thoughtfully selected. The painted window mullions give the home a stately presence. This home shows and lives like a rock star!

Traditional Interior Design


Photo by brad ziegler

1st - VanBrouck & Associates Inc., with Luxe Homes Design + Build And Oliver Max Interiors

The challenge here was to juxtapose the masculine boldness of the exterior stonework  with a refined and elegant interior, creating a dynamic relationship between rustic and refined, raw and polished, ancient and modern. The spaces are simple and honest, without unnecessary embellishment. The color palette of warm and cool tonal grays is derived from the rugged Cortona stone of the exterior.

Use of Fabrics / Wall Coverings


Photo by john carlson

1st - Tutto Interiors

A mixed use of fabrics and wallpaper creates richness in this home’s lower level. Gray is the staple in the room, and the stark white stone on the fireplace (not shown) is a dramatic contrast to the purple pillows and navy blue chain link wallpaper. Rich fabrics and dramatic wallpaper add great texture and color to this space.

Use of Color

1st - Tutto Interiors

Several tones of gray, white, tan, and beige appear in this room, and navy adds a dramatic touch — but doesn’t overstimulate the eye, like some colors do. The result is sophisticated, dramatic, and subtle.

The homeowner’s children were photographed specifically for this end use. The selected photos were printed super big, and mounted between glass sheets that clip to tension cables. The result is a wall with a huge “wow” factor!

Window Treatment


Photo by justin maconochie

1st - James Douglas Interiors

Importance was placed on full-coverage draperies in this master bedroom, due to the size and number of the windows in the room. Custom-weighted panels were fabricated to be fully traversing, allowing for the most exposure during the day and privacy at night. While restful hues were emphasized, a touch of drama was added with the contrast of two-toned panels that float gently in front of the windows.

It’s a totally custom space, and so gorgeous!

Sustainable Design

This lower level features a series of gathering spaces for socializing, gaming, and entertainment, and there’s plenty of comfortable seating for guests. The eye is immediately drawn to the bar overlooking the media room and the ceiling above the game room, which are crafted from recycled, repurposed wood pallets. The warm tones perfectly complement the industrial-style bar stools, and dark ceiling beams add depth and dimension.
