About the Project

A bold swath of saturated navy blue transforms this den into a jewel box. Its sparkling diamond is this gleaming wet bar with paneled beverage refrigerator. The rich oak flooring is the backdrop for the contemporary flat panel cabinetry of high-gloss exotic veneers. Pure white on the ceiling and trim delivers crisp contrast against the walls. To further balance the dark floor and bases, white Caesarstone was chosen for the countertop. Glamour is supplied by the mirrored wall, reflecting the glassware and liquor bottles atop the open glass shelves, as well as the windows and abundant light. The mirror also adds depth to the room. Metal accents boost the shine: a polished nickel faucet; the stainless steel sink; and brushed nickel door pulls.

The sleek pedigree of the room is accentuated by an “island” of a fluffy white Flokati rug supporting a midcentury style tufted leather chaise. Its saddle color is a nod to the caramel tones in the cabinetry. Positioned in the windowed bay, the wooded landscape feels like you’re napping in the trees.

A testament to the owners’ confidence is that their nearby kitchen exhibits a classic, transitional aesthetic, proving that you can mix styles to spectacular effect.
