From the moment you step in the front door, designer Kristina Wolf played up the home's dominant Craftsman features. White interior columns and wide molding stand out against the powdery blue walls in the foyer.
Classic and contemporary elements meet in this sleek, clean-lined home. Weathered wood and Oriental carpets form a pleasing contrast with gallery-white walls and modern glass-and-metal doors, windows and stair rails.
This long entry hallway was dark and foreboding before a remodel. The solution was a large mirror, delightful wall mural and whimsical pendant light fixture that livened up and infused an eclectic vibe into the neutral entryway.
While a sleek bar cart is nice eye candy, you don't need one to create a functional & stylish serving area for guests to prep a cocktail. Any space can be transformed into a makeshift bed station. All you really need is some barware, a cutting board and a few holiday decorations.
Before renovating this pre-Depression era apartment, the spaces in the home were very dark and traditional. To remedy this, designers added ambient light to brighten up the space. In this hallway, they restored the neoclassical plasterwork to highlight the architectural elegance of the space and added modern art to match the homeowner's personal style. These efforts highlight the history of the building, perfectly blending it with the modern style of the homeowner.
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.
Industrial metal barstools pair with exposed ductwork and a vintage-style fireplace to create an urban look for this restaurant's bar. Sleek pendant lights add a contemporary touch, and rustic wood floors lend warmth underfoot.
You can't take your eyes off this aquarium! First, it doubles as a curved bar before it juts up and over with a pass-through to the living room. Pendant lights and a rich hardwood floor don't complete for attention in the room.
The master bedroom suite in HGTV Dream Home 2015 takes up the entire right wing of the house and includes the master bedroom, master bathroom and a spacious master closet. Each area is painted in a gorgeous blue that separates the suite from the rest of the home, making it a beautiful, calming escape.
