As seen on Good Bones, Karen and Mina wanted to continue the elegant, industrial style into this bathroom, so they carried the reclaimed wood floor into this space. Brown accents keep the space neutral, while continuing to complement the design of the space. In the shower area, designers used subway tile arranged in a chevron pattern to add depth to the space and brighten this neutral space.
Good Bones host Karen created this hydroponic planter using 5" PVC post covers to contain the nutrient-rich growing solution. A 4" hole-saw was used to cut holes in the container for the plants to extend through, and the front is covered with hex tiles left over from the new bathroom. Plants include bibb lettuce, red-leaf lettuce, basil, mint and tarragon.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Mina and Karen used neutral gray and brown tones to create a sophisticated oasis. The neutrals keep the design calm, yet warm and inviting, while the patterns on the fabric adds a fun twist to an elegant design. To add color to this neutral palette, the duo added bold paintings and a colorful bird mobile to brighten the space.
As seen on Good Bones, a former rundown bedroom is transformed into an elegant kitchen with butcher block countertops and a granite bar. There is plenty of counter space and storage in this kitchen, with upper and lower cabinets surrounding the room, and modern, open shelving to display unique pieces. To complete the space, stainless steel appliances were added to finish out the sleek look.
This home used to be a duplex before Good Bones' Mina and Karen reconfigures the entire first floor, removing walls to create an open floor plan and reworking the home's front entrance. When they put the home on the market, they not only staged the home with stylish, modern furniture, they had local artists display their work for the open house. The setup for the open house is featured in this photo.
These homeowners were in need of a space for their two little girls to get creative, so designers Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak of HGTV's Good Bones transformed an unused attic space into the perfect playroom. An accent wall in the back of the space provides a focal point, while keeping the room fun and bright, while shelves give the girls a place to store their toys and display their artwork. A white rug adds comfort to the space, creating a great spot for the girls to play and draw together.
This kitchen, which had been drastically damaged in a fire, is now an elegant, functional space in this contemporary home. To give more room to this space, Karen and Mina removed a wall, which brought this kitchen to the forefront of the design of the home. Then, they added plenty of storage and counter space with upper and lower cabinets. To help make the space pop, a stainless steel dining table with teal accent chairs were brought in, tying the space together, creating an elegant, contemporary kitchen. As seen on HGTV's Good Bones.
As seen on Good Bones, this small bathroom was in need of some sprucing. Once a small, dark room, Karen and Mina have transformed it into a bright, colorful space. A new coat of white paint on the walls reflects the light from the window as well as the light above the vanity, making the space feel bright, while pops of turquoise in the vanity and the artwork give the room some color. To finish off the design, a modern, mirrored plant stand gives the space a splash of personality.
In this renovated guest bedroom, Karen and Mina repainted the walls and replaced the floors to give the space a fresh, neutral color palette. To create warmth in the space, Karen and Mina, of HGTV's Good Bones, used shades of brown, to make the room warm and inviting. They also added reclaimed wood accents and and an industrial chandelier to create interest and highlight the elegant, industrial design they were going for.
If you don't mind a little elbow grease, create your own wine buffet for the dining room from a bedroom dresser (or similar furniture piece). Look for furniture with good bones, then knock out drawers, add wine cubbies and a fresh coat of paint. Kim and Lori of That's So Creative are the masterminds behind this repurposed wine buffet.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, designers Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine wanted to make the best use of the natural light that streams into this living room from the bay window. A neutral color palette reflects that light, complementing the beauty of nature instead of competing with it. To give the space a bit of personality, a brightly colored ottoman that could double as a coffee table was selected for this space. They also hung a vintage ladder below the window to add interest in the space, as well to serve as a book shelf.
To create more light in the space, the Good Bones team, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak, added two new windows in the reclaimed wood accent wall. This not only gives the space a focal point, but also allows more natural light into the space, making it feel bright and open. To add to the elegant, industrial design the team was going for, they added black and white artwork, a metal headboard, brown bed linens and dark end tables and lamp shades. To tie the space together and give it a pop of color, a green shag carpet adds comfort to this elegant, industrial master bedroom.
