Usher in the winter season with texture. Dig through your cabinets or scout thrift shops for patterned vases and bowls, which can be filled with pinecones and bulbs, like these paperwhites selected by Karin Jeffcoat of Cote Designs in South Carolina. Instead of matching pieces, use different components, finishes and designs to give the tabletop an informal, eclectic look.
"White pottery goes with everything," says interior designer Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson of Terracotta Design Build. "White pottery is always a great investment because it looks good forever. It doesn’t have to be expensive to pack a punch."
This powder room's got style! An impactful, black, tile wall is a unique and gorgeous for the space. A mirror with an art deco feel is the bathroom's centerpiece. Farmhouse-style vanity fixtures provide ample light, and a vessel-style sink in a floating counter adds classy simplicity.
White walls and an elevated hardwood floor panel give this bathroom a clean and airy atmosphere. Frosted glass over the windows keeps the look light while making the space private. Glass walls surround the shower with built in storage cubby decorated with blue and gray tile. A white tub fits the Asian look for a stylish soaking option.
A hardwood section elevates the free standing bathtub and shower areas. Glass walls enclosing the shower and frosted glass over the windows keep the room open and light. A pastel blue wall panel adds a hushed touch of color. Cabinetry repeats the hardwood finish opposite the bathing floor.
A ceiling faucet trickles down into this bathtub bringing a waterfall effect to the room. The cup-like shape is a unique twist on the traditional bathtub look perfectly fitting for the crisp, Asian design. Frosted glass creates privacy without taking away from the bright look of the room.
With a color palette that recollects the Caribbean, this modern kitchen is both cheerful and calming. A pale blue backsplash is brought alive via blue bottles and vases and moved into the center of the room courtesy of two large bowls.
Everyday bowls look like art when layered and stacked. A cute metal sign is made with the homeowners' house numbers for a personal touch. Designer Tip: You don't have to have expensive dishes to be able to display them.
Practical shelving can also be stylish. Whether they hold essential toiletries or decorative candles that give the room a cozy glow, bathroom shelves are too often relegated to style afterthoughts. Incorporate shelving into your bathroom design, and you’ll find a needed shelf can also be nifty.
White dishes help continue the bright, clean look of the loft onto the kitchen table, while a textured placemat and wood cutting board and bowl bright warmth and texture to the tabletop. A sprig of fresh lavender ties the design together.
