A black, gray and neutral geometric rug anchors this chic transitional dining room. Black furnishings add contrast, while a ceiling fan, small spotlights and sconces illuminate the space. White beadboard wainscoting completes the design.
Large glass doors and an all-neutral palette create a bright, breezy atmosphere in this open living space. A gray stone fireplace anchors the room, and clean-lined furniture ensures a crisp, contemporary aesthetic.
Anchoring the guest bedroom design, a sculptural adornment above the bed is a statement piece that ties the room together. “We found that on the island," says interior designer Linda Woodrum. "It was an old piece that was signage for something and we just bought it impulsively."
One of the focal points of this family's redesigned home from AB Design Elements is the chic protected patio that is located adjacent to the large open kitchen. The grand, two-story stone fireplace fits the rustic design of the space and harmonizes with the exposed wood beams of the ceiling and the style of the dining table. Moreover, the star pendants hanging above the dining table are a lovely and unexpected design detail that provide a fun, whimsical touch.
A sweet window seat takes a contemporary turn thanks to bold, black-and-white prints on the seat cushion and accent pillows. Coastal accessories and artwork keep the space tied to its beachfront setting.
This coastal-style master bedroom includes antique-style furnishings that lend a lived-in look and a canopy poster bed fashioned from mindi wood. A serpentine-front cabinet stands in as both a nightstand and clothing and linen storage unit.
The secret to a successful modern apartment is plenty of storage. The built-in cabinets stretch from the dining room to the living room to maximize storage and enhance both spaces. The recessed section on the living room side enlarges the space at seating level while creating end tables and a serving counter. Yellow and pale teal accent the seating area, and a zebra-print rug provides a statement piece.
A classic leather Chesterfield sofa takes center stage in this masculine living room. Blue and white throw pillows add color to the sofa, while cowhide ottomans complement the warm leather and provide a place to rest your feet.
The subtle gray tones in this wood dining table bring down the intensity of the red and black decor in this dining room that doubles as a work space at the 2014 HGTV Smart Home. Having a dual-purpose room is significant," explains interior designer Linda Woodrum. "Homeowners can easily host casual dinner parties in the evening and set up a hard-working office space during the day."
Oversized cushioned wicker chairs shaded by a muted umbrella, offer comfort before the outdoor fireplace – with inset birdhouse – constructed in multicolored stonework. A complementary walkway borders manicured rows of shrubbery which form a perimeter around beds of wildflowers. Accent pillows on the chairs draw from the color of the surrounding greenery.
To highlight the color in the space, designers used a neutral color palette to anchor the space and help reflect the natural light from the windows. Mirrors were then added to reflect the color and light, making the space look brighter.
