Stone Double Fireplace in Contemporary Master Bedroom
A double-sided stacked stone fireplace is a stunning focal point in the center of this elegant master bedroom. Comfortable chairs sit on one side for a cozy seating area, while a platform bed is situated between picturesque windows with beautiful views.
Dark, masculine suit-stitch textile wallpaper creates a dashing look in this bedroom. For added luxury, the designers mixed light and dark tones and soft textiles for the bedding. Gold accents finish the space off. Wallpaper: Maya Romanoff wallcovering
This young family needed a home office that is as bright and bold as they are. The emerald green desk adds a punch of color to the space, while a warm-toned area rug grounds the room. An oversized geometric light fixture nods to modern style.
A hand-tufted wool pile area rug in a muted, gravel-colored tone anchors the design of the HGTV Smart Home 2012 guest bedroom. One-of-a-kind artwork — digitally altered photographic prints — stands in place of a traditional headboard.
Using careful groupings of furniture and objects, you can create distinct niches, even in smaller spaces. Designer Michel Boyd uses an ultrasuede-covered couch and bookcase to create a reading nook in his home, and this chair and pillows framed by a cut-out portion of wall is its own unique vignette.
For homeowners who enjoy travel and geography, a mural of the Earth is an inspired choice for the master bedroom. Because of the wall-sized mural, furniture needed to be simple, so the designers added a midcentury modern dresser, a glass lamp and just a few accessories. Lamp: Marset table lamp
In this smaller New York City home, space was at a premium and the dining area was very close to the entryway. The table and pendant help define it and keep it separate but harmonious as people come into the house. The dining table was customized by adding copper table legs to a wood tabletop. The designers picked up the copper accents in the lighting and place settings.
To create a welcoming space in this townhouse, designers used a base palette of white and serene blue, layered with yellow and gray accents. Accessories like the lamp and abstract painting add fun personality. A marble top was a simple way to customize the store-bought coffee table. Lamp: Marset floor lamp
Through a colorful doorway and past a tastefully appointed parlor is a breathtaking living room. The dark stained floors, which run through the entire house, were laid by Julio, who taught himself the skills he needed to accomplish the job. The white masks that hang from the far wall are his creations as well. The masks offer a modern way to bring classic Angolan art home. The ornate fireplace, one of four hearths this home boasts, is original to the space, as is the decorative scrollwork that runs across moldings and ceilings in this room. The way that Kenza and Julio have maintained the architecture of the home, is a reminder not to remove or cover up original fixtures, but to instead accentuate them. Filling a traditional space with modern furnishings creates a unique contrast of styles that can add layers of sophistication to a room.
Warm woods used on the floor, ceiling and for the French doors brings a warm, inviting vibe into this southwestern dining room. Neutral upholstered chairs surround the rustic dining table, while a chandelier adds a touch of glam.
