The approach to this home in Oregon’s high desert includes a walk past an interior courtyard to a beckoning focal point — what’s left of a gnarled lilac tree trunk affixed to the wall inside. The moment foreshadows the influence of the natural surroundings on the interiors.
Detail worth noting: Houzzers also were drawn to the engineered reclaimed white oak floors from Restoration Timber.
Detail worth noting: The low windows along the floor let in light and a few peeks of the landscape while providing privacy.
Houzzers took notes on the fine architectural details of this Manhattan apartment. The wainscoting, French doors and herringbone floors were a hit. And the contemporary light fixture, bench and art signal that the interiors will be far from fusty.
Detail worth noting: The grasscloth wallcovering brings subtle, pleasing texture into the space.
Detail worth noting: What do you think the bell is for? When I was a child, my mother had one just like it. She’d step outside the front door at dinnertime and ring it to let my brother and me know it was time to come home.
This was the most popular entry photo of the past three months. Not only is it full of space for books, shoes, bags, mail and chargers, but it also has great style. The cubbies are backed by tongue-and-groove paneling. The bench is a lovely wood that warms up all that white. A new door opens to a floor of matte gray porcelain tiles, and the runner adds pattern atop the tiles.
Detail worth noting: The doors on the upper cabinets are antiqued mirror.
