A collection of antique and vintage grooming tools, displayed in an old fashioned barber’s jar, accessorizes this vanity. The spray of coral against the marble panel and a bronze cross, used to hang jewelry while the homeowner is washing up, add a touch of quirky panache.
Individual lamps offer a unique kitchen island element and light the place settings in front of the leather bar chairs. The light hardwood floor and cool-toned neutral design gives a soft look to the room. The yellow-green walls add a subtle touch of color that keeps the room looking bright.
This pink and black kitchen is not for the timid. Hot pink cabinets, pink and black graphic wallpaper, and retro pendant lamps work with a curved black countertop on the island and the black and white barstools.
The modern kitchen makes use of clean, straight lines: white cabinets without hardware, a long, dark brown island with seamless black countertop and square recessed lights. Adjustable task floor lamps make for one-of-a-kind pendant lights above the long dining table, which seats easily 10.
In this basement bathroom from the 2014 HGTV Smart Home, the orange vanity and matching mirror are a great color accent against white walls and a white countertop, and pick up on orange wall accents and original art. Two mounted stainless steel lamps with small shades surround the mirror and match the stainless steal towel rack, faucet and drawer handles.
A granite countertop and double vanity anchor the spacious kids bathroom from HGTV Dream Home 2014. Industrial touches, like the galvanized steel storage totes, are accented with matching metal wall lamps and a white mirror bordered in red.
“Our client had the fantastic idea to use rolling tool cabinets in her kitchen,” says architect Nick Pancheau. “We designed a simple kitchen island combining seating and storage in a single movable piece. We selected a lime-green finish to match the fritted glass lamp shades made by the client; a subtle dark-green soapstone countertop rests atop the cabinets.”
An arch of mirrors surround this vanity for easy viewing and a bright, reflective feel. A vintage stool is perfect for the feminine feel. The white marble floor is echoed by a marble accent strip above the vanity countertop. A pair of lamps and small flower pots creates a mirrored look for the decoration.
A gold splatter paint effect on the accent mirror wall compliments the metallic doors on the contemporary buffet fitted into this nook. The wood frame of the buffet offers a warmth against the gray and metallic finishes. A table lamp and red glass bottles decorate the countertop.
"I love the look of high-end materials like marble and polished brass, but if you can't afford, say, an all-marble kitchen countertop, why not bring those materials into your space by using them on smaller pieces and home accessories? I have a table lamp with a marble base that adds a very posh touch to my home office." -Camille Styles, lifestyle blogger & Creative Director at CamilleStyles.com
