mtBD38This Long Island bungalow is charming and traditional on the outside but bold and modern inside.  This beautiful white kitchen is punctuated with natural touches, such as the white oak table, warm leather dining chairs, and cylindrical light fixture. Stainless steel appliances and brushed nickel knobs are a modern touch against the white cottage-style cabinets and classic subway tile.  In the master bedroom, the bedding is truly the focal point. Combining a classic pattern with a bold color is a great way to mix traditional and modern styles.  An unused closet was restyled to include a makeshift office.  To learn more about this home visit

Seen on: Ill Seen, Ill Said


Here are just a couple stylish solutions from Design within Reach to make any small workspace special:

Nelson Swag Leg Desk: The reintroduction of George Nelson’s Swag Leg Desk (1958) was driven by today’s propensity for working on laptop computers. With the exception of adding cable management to suit today’s compact electronics, the desk is as George Nelson designed it 50 years ago. Back then, the motivation to create such a desk began with Nelson asking “wouldn’t it be beautiful to have some kind of sculptured leg on a piece of furniture?” An idea was launched, but the designer had to figure out how to make the legs of metal, machine formed and pre-finished – and all designed for quick assembly. The solution turned out to be swaging, which means using pressure to taper and curve a metal tube. Nelson had found a way to make his sculptured legs, and in the process he created a precursor to today’s workstation.
