The combination of black cabinets and copper finishes makes a statement in this kitchen. The cabinets are given a weathered look to reflect the home's colonial style, while the copper hood adds metallic glam to the space.
The gorgeous green tile range backsplash adds depth and texture to this modern kitchen, designed by Yuko Matsumoto. Subway tile in a slightly lighter hue was cleverly used for the backsplash beneath the cabinets.
This modern kitchen has a distinct mid-century vibe, with dark brown cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for maximum storage and throwback barstools covered in a burnt-orange leather. A pot filler adds function above the cooktop.
Warm, neutral paint contrasts with exotic artwork and accessories to create an intriguing statement. The large, turquoise decorative pot adds a distinct element and brightly accents the simple, gray-toned wall. In a purposeful asymmetric presentation, handblown-glass floral art is hung along one wall in the living room. Glass sculptures in their spectacular hues of red, orange, yellow, and other colors generate an eye-caching focal point from all vantage points.
The contained nature of a small urban courtyard gives you a huge opportunity to bring in a cool feature. Cultivators Design and Landscape purchased the orange container and retro-fitted a fountain around it for a custom industrial fountain. A fountain also can be cheaper than a waterfall. You can re-create the look as a DIY project using a garden pot you already own or hunting at yard sales.
In this quirky home office, stacked tables and desks in varying styles serve as a unique built-in display and storage system. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn cut the tables in half, spray painted them with three different shades of orange, attached them to one another, and affixed them to the wall with drywall screws placed directly into studs. He painted the walls a terra-cotta tone called Clay Pot and chose a blue desk chair for contrast.
