2. Simulated pine perfectionDesigner: Micah Tipler of Crimson Design AssociatesLocation: HoustonHomeowner’s request. “The homeowner wanted the space to be detailed perfectly, without feeling overdone, and still maintain a masculine vibe,” says designer Micah Tipler, who used Houzz ideabooks to collaborate with her client on design ideas. “He loves to entertain, so plenty of seating and an open traffic flow in this small space was a must. Executing this design with a level of simplicity in mind was important to achieve the final result.”Wood cabinets. Durable simulated pine wood grain. “The warmth of the wood cabinets is an important aspect of our design, as it allowed us to keep the rest of the kitchen clean and sharp without feeling sterile,” Tipler says. Other special features. Porcelain slab countertops and backsplash that mimic Calacatta marble. “The blend of warmth and cool within the veining balance perfectly with the wood grain,” Tipler says. Designer tip. “For this masculine space, we wanted to execute a monochromatic colour palette,” Tipler says. “However, we’ve found that sometimes these spaces can fall flat, as they lack depth and interest. We decided to incorporate mixed metals of stainless steel, polished nickel and gold to add contrast, warmth and dimension to the space.”“Uh-oh” moment. “As this project is a luxury condo, space was very limited during the installation, particularly for large pieces,” Tipler says. “When it was time to bring in the dining table we were nervous that it may be too tight to turn the first corner in the hallway. Thankfully for our amazing delivery crew, they were able to manoeuvre the table in slowly and carefully to be placed in its final home.”

Clean-lined cabinets...but wood-grain and color are wonderful. Color of floor matters, however. These cabinets might not be a good color with concrete floors.
