Tudor revival in Gates Mills becomes a symphony of light and lines

For homeowners who love to entertain, the wide kitchen island with comfy bar stools serves as a welcoming gathering space in this kitchen.

The grey taupe with muted gold wallpaper by Brewster adds texture in the powder room, which also features a framed mirror mounted on top of a wall-to-wall plate glass mirror.

Nestled into the home in a climate-controlled area, this combo wine storage and tasting area is kept homey, yet rustic, by the addition of a beige armchair, an open metal work table and a lone metal lantern.

The cozy vignette encapsulates the entire home’s interior design, striking geometric lines against light neutrals accented by metal, glass, and splashes of blue and green, all anchored with rich wood.

The key elements of elegant lines and open spaces serve as the consistent foundation of this home’s design, whether expressed in the architecture, the furniture or the subtle pattern in the carpet. Take note of the Yamaha piano tucked into the back ground--Billy Joel used it to record several albums back in the day.

It took over a year for all of the home remodeling ideas that these homeowners and contractor had to be completed.

A grand staircase with a gorgeous chandelier and lanterns lining the steps makes an elegant statement in this entryway.

The most architecturally unique room of this house, the second floor family room is striking with exposed beams underlining a dramatic loft, but the triangular banks of windows draw all the attention.

An old Stanley formal dining room table, protected by glass top, becomes appropriate for everyday use when paired with taupe armless Parsons chairs in a lighter wood.

Walls of windows and skylights make this room an unconventional setting for the cherry inlaid custom pool table. Nearby is a step-down full bar.

This bedroom design includes matching beige and blue upholstered chairs that sit in front of a flat screen TV; one of the many features that make the master a retreat. “We hang out in there,” the homeowner says with a smile.

A pair of dramatic wall sconces flank the art deco style mirror above the cream quartz top of the ebony vanity in the master bathroom.

Remote controlled lanterns make a statement against the simple contrasting lines of the curved staircase. “I had the lanterns out for Christmas with poinsettias and lanterns alternating on the stairs. When I took the flowers away, I really liked it,” said the homeowner.

Keeping within the palette, the guest room decor plays with scale and size, outlining the playful features in dark tones while letting the accenting blue dominate.

Windows pepper this home's elegant Tudor Revival facade, allowing natural light to shine on the various rooms inside.
