As seen on HGTV's hit show, Fixer Upper, the newly renovated Jones home has been transformed from the inside out. Some key elements of the exterior are the new front door, window shutters, columns, plaster style paint, and landscaping, making the home more inviting.
This home in South Tampa is one of several homes on its street with synthetic grass in the front and backyards. Since there is little need for blowers and mowers we think it must be pretty serene and green.
"I found an old paned window at a salvage yard and cut it down to fit the opening between this home's entry and dining room. It not only looks cool, but it cuts down on drafts," says Emily Jones, graphic designer and owner of Jones Design Company, Seattle, Washington.
You're not seeing double. The mirrored ceiling of the Mixologist Quarters at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 expands the small space. Designed by Reba Jones, the dramatic backlit dispensary is reflected in the ceiling, creating double the impact.
Who says modern style can't be nuanced, comfortable and bright? This living room is livened up with wood plank ceilings painted white, contrasting exposed beams, a rich wood mantel and varying pattern upholstered chairs. The fireplace is the highlight of the space, sitting off-center in a classy limestone surround.
Look closely: That's not a mirror image of the island on the porch outside -- it's an identical island for outdoor dining! The gorgeous, open kitchen also boasts high ceilings, concrete countertops and modern pendant lighting. A tidy dining area is just steps away.

To the left, a large study area -- which could also be used as a home school classroom -- features bookshelves, ergonomically correct chairs, a map and other necessary supplies. On the right, the home's humble entry shows a beautiful wood plank ceiling and frosted sliding glass doors.
Here's a well-lit and comfortably neutral living room. The spacious space -- featuring a unique series of square windows near the ceiling line -- boasts tons of room and seating, perfect for a family movie night or loafing on a Sunday afternoon. Striking modern art completes the room.
Adjacent to a portable bar and modern art, one wall of the mixologist quarters at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase functions as a Dry-Erase board for writing new recipes. Essential mixologist's tools are neatly arranged on the surgical steel table.

Here's a feature few can boast -- a kitchen/dining room that essentially opens up completely to the outdoors! Just inside the mammoth sliding glass doors, you can see an expansive kitchen island and cozy dining table. Glass windows extend far above the doors, allowing maximum light and creating a reinforced sense of openness.
With what's called a "butterfly" roof, this midcentury modern home is a vision of indoor/outdoor living. Here, the expansive porch boasts built-in benches, dining table and chairs, and a gorgeous collection of native flowers, plants, trees and succulents.
Talk about a short commute, and who needs an expensive wardrobe when you can work in your PJs? This unused closet was transformed into an attractive home office with the help of a few shelves and wallpaper.
Here's a kitchen with a bonus -- an outdoor eating area just adjacent! The floor-to-ceiling windows bring an amazing light into the space, which boasts stainless steel microwave, convection oven, refrigerator and wine refrigerator. The simple style of the cabinets echo a classic, modern look.
It's tough to pick out the most impressive element in this large modern kitchen. The floating, cantilevered, concrete counter peninsula supported by a single beam? The high, painted wood ceilings with exposed beams? The unique wood block backsplash that also separates the kitchen from the dining room? You be the judge!
