What we did

Warson Woods Mid-Century Modern Home

Designed by: Karen Dubinsky

Inspired by the streamlined aesthetic and natural materials of midcentury modern design, the client tasked designer Karen Dubinsky with a whole house remodel reflective of this style. Karen started at the entry, changing the dingy gray on the door to a bright, happy yellow. Moving inside to the dining room, Karen replaced tired wall-to-wall carpeting with dark slate floor and opted for a marble-topped table with brass base and four upholstered chairs. The crowning jewel of the space is a striking Jonathan Adler brass chandelier. A second Jonathan Adler chandelier hangs in the same room, just inside the front door. In the kitchen, Karen gave the sad, dated space a happy, fresh redo, with gorgeous solid walnut cabinetry, a sensational blue-gray geometric wall tile treatment, sleek stainless steel appliances and range hood and simple brass fixtures and hardware. The master bath also boasts solid wood cabinetry, refined tile and defining grout lines and elegant fixtures.

What they said

“Working with Karen on not one, but two total house design projects this year was a delight! The number of options and decisions involved could be overwhelming, but not with Karen. She has a keen, confident aesthetic sense. She listens and respects your preferences but then enhances and develops them into something above and beyond. She really knows what will work best and how to achieve it. The outcome of both projects was creative, livable elegance with beautiful flow.” – S.M.
