Edda Braune Kitchen October 08th, 2017
Brown is not boring. Kitchen and bath specialist Robin Rigby Fisher explains that "this kitchen sits between an original 1918 Craftsman formal dining room and a contemporary family room. The only constant was the dark woodwork throughout both spaces. We also had the challenge of designing around a ceiling height that has a 9‐inch difference from one side of the beam to the other so we chose to incorporate the dark wood accent as a crown molding. The intention was to draw your eye around the room with the goal of minimizing the height discrepancy.

Mixed patterns same color. Why stop with mixing stripes when you can mix in other patterns as well? When you keep the colors to a strict palette the patterns will feel like an intentional mix. Try a wide stripe narrow stripe solid and fun printed textile like a batik or suzani in a matching hue.

Add a half‐wall to protect against splashes. Ideally an open shower requires at least a 6‐foot buffer zone on every side to avoid flooding the rest of the bath with water. But a half‐wall such as the one that divides this shower from the vanity can help to contain droplets. Consider a corner location if possible. Orient the shower in a corner that faces away from the other bathroom zones. Not only does this guard against spraying water but it also preserves some measure of privacy (more on that in a minute).

Different chairs same upholstery. Unify a group of lovely chairs old or new by having them re‐covered in the same fabric. In the dining room featured here three different pairs of chairs were all covered in similar fabric to create a "set".

Solo ledge. When there's ample shelving and storage elsewhere in the house it can make more sense to keep things simple around the fireplace. The single shelf in this living room is enough to add some chic coastal style with accessories.

Light it up with neon. A room saturated in charcoal – from the walls to the paintwork – makes a gorgeous backdrop for neon colors. This electric‐pink table along with the bright yellow artwork pops and helps to define the room which could have been a bit of a black hole without such an energizing color. A couple of pieces are enough though so the dramatic effect of the charcoal isn't lost.

Use quilt patterns in new ways. A traditional quilt pattern takes on a new use as a wall tile pattern in this bathroom. Designer Suzan Fellman recommends choosing a grouting color that matches the colored tiles as she did with the grout between the red tiles here.

Here's another green‐accented kitchen but this hue has more blue in it and creates a nice midcentury modern vibe. You can't go wrong pairing this pretty hue with white and light‐toned woods.
