Creative design solutions help to make the most of your space – whatever the size. In this room design from HGTV Design Star, a white modular bookshelf functions as a room divider with built-in storage in a small living room. The small acrylic coffee table doesn't weigh down the space, while a gray shag rug softens the parquet floors and adds subtle color.
Custom Rug Adds Splash of Color to Modern Living Room
The custom-made rug and stainless steel coffee table provide the ultimate family-friendly treatment for this heavily used room. The rug, along with the artwork in the dining room, adds color and movement to the space.
To make the kitchen and living room feel even more cohesive, the architects extended the wood ceiling across the two spaces. A low-level loveseat and four armchairs give the owners room to entertain, without distracting from their stunning surroundings.
White walls and open spaces characterize the living area of this show-stopping Malibu home. A sitting room features Mid-Century Modern furniture and a modern glass light fixture, while a unique glassed-in wine cellar divides the space from the global-infused living room beyond. Modern art defines a seating niche with a contemporary bench that provides extra seating.
Berm Ensconces Coastal Live Oak Tree to Create Cozy Space for Reflection
Landscape design firm Siol added a berm to create an intimate space for reflection and meditation in the backyard of the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015. A crane was used to lift a 15-year-old, drought-tolerant coastal live oak tree into the mounded area, which is lined with cedar shingles.
The garden at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014 leads to a final vignette, designed by Kate Webster and Thayer Hopkins, to inspire and encourage reflection. A brick path draws the eye toward the abstract, mirrored sculpture that reflects light and creates the illusion that the pillars are also decorated with the flowers.
An underused butler’s pantry now serves as an elegant wine closet and entertaining focal point. The custom glass doors with metal frames match the windows of the house. Three walls hold wine, accented by a piece of artwork commissioned by MOSAIC Group. The wood countertops are faux-finished to look like concrete countertops elsewhere in the home.
So many windows and a ceiling that angles up make the interior of this contemporary cabin feel as spacious as the mountain setting around it. A huge rug with a geometric pattern unifies the large living area.
