To give their English-inspired kitchen a time-worn effect, homeowners Michelle Donnelly and Mark Puchala hand-painted the cabinetry and hardware. “We wanted the kitchen to feel original,” explains Michelle.
The warm grey palette is continued into the principal bathroom, where a custom-made wood vanity, maple floors and graphic kilim rug give it a decorated feel. A Jean Prouvé wall light is a fresh alternative to sconces.
Ornate Egyptian pantry doors and a pair of vintage leather barstools are what set designer Sam Sacks’ kitchen apart. Veined marble countertops and backsplash make the room feel polished.
Samantha’s eclectic design continues into the principal bathroom. Here, trad hammered-brass sconces juxtapose the modern floating vanity.
Large steel-framed doors open up to the home’s terrace and flood the kitchen with natural light. Thonet chairs lend the space a classic bistro vibe.
Unlacquered brass fixtures are a luxurious finish in this spacious principal ensuite. A clawfoot tub adds a note of femininity.
A four-foot square island made of salvaged American chestnut and rolled steel allows for ample entertaining space in designer Darcie Watson’s kitchen. Glass upper cabinets flip up to reveal extra storage.
The home’s principal ensuite calls to mind a spa-like sanctuary. A gorgeous double-sided veined marble fireplace is a striking feature.
A daring monochromatic palette fills interior designer Scott Yetman’s Montreal condo. In the kitchen, white cabinets balance the visual weight of the large black island.
Phillip Jefferies’ “It’s Greek To Me” wallpaper adds drama in the bathroom. To offset the graphic pattern, Scott installed a traditional chippendale mirror.
Light hardwood floors and white cabinetry keep designer Shirley Meisels’ kitchen bright. A mod black vent hood adds a hit of contrast and grounds the space.
The principal ensuite has a more relaxed palette, with creamy floor tiles and a natural wood vanity. A globe pendant and a wall of wavy mosaic tiles are whimsical features.
Design duo Les Ensembliers are known for their elegant spaces, and this kitchen is no exception. Polished Carrara marble and silver accents give it a clean, classic feel.
Caramel-colored drapes pick up on the warmth of oak floors and introduce a layered element in this principal bathroom. A sculptural tub has pride of place under a window.
Designer Connie Braemer’s masterful mix of materials is what makes this kitchen stand out. Countertops are a cool blend of wood and granite, while black powder-coated steel shelving lends the space an industrial edge.
Mottled glass windows ensure privacy in this principal bathroom. Cement-grey porcelain tiles pair well with the mod, squared-off tub.
Warm metal accents — including brass hooks and a striking pendant light — punctuate this clean-lined kitchen. White oak cabinets and an open-concept design lend the space a Scandinavian feel.
The home’s minimalist aesthetic continues into the bathroom, where black tiles add texture and contrast to the warm wood tones.
A pale palette gives this modern kitchen an airy appeal, and metallic accents add subtle shine.
Unlike the home’s subdued kitchen, the bathroom embraces splashy hits of color. Designer Ashley Botten covered half of the wall in blue tile and used a purple resin cube on casters so that bathroom essentials are always kept close at hand.
