Sample text

An island with a cantilevered marble top accommodates socializing and casual dining at one end. With all the appliances tucked below the counters and the walls adorned with a collection of John Lennon lithographs and a funky undulating sculpture that interior designer Bruce Tittle designed himself (using panels from Seattle’s Modular Arts), this kitchen barely looks like a kitchen. To underscore this point. Tittle put a living room lamp on one of the counters. The elegantly bold black-and-white-striped wallpaper and golden-yellow Roman shades in this Gold Coast kitchen are pure Alessandra Branca.

All these touches elevate this humble workhorse of the house—and, given its importance in our lives, why shouldn’t it be given some respect? We love how Nate Berkus combined classic elements (such as subway tiles) with unexpected ones (an antique French armoire) to personalize the master bath in his Chicago residence. We also admire the boldness of another homeowner’s decision to put a soaking tub in the master bedroom. Yet another loo, just for kids, has a groovy industrial vibe. The bathroom is not just for taking care of business anymore.

While the owner was very fussy about some details in his decor (for example, he insisted on French flanging for the edge of one sofa), he wasn’t above paying $50 for a console table (he was so proud of the bargain, he left the tag on it). He also confidently nestled a plump Hermès pillow between a cheap-and-chic pair from CB2. The same condo also has a charming den (formerly the dining room), where walls covered with grass cloth, an antique sofa upholstered with men’s suiting fabric, a tufted ottoman, and a hide rug create an enveloping, richly textured space.
