For a homeowner with an art collecting passion, clean, neutral walls act as a gallery to show off bold works. The foyer's sleek, geometric console table fits in with the modern aesthetic and doesn't overpower the photograph hanging above it.
To create a seamless, open foyer and camouflage the front and powder room doors, the walls in the entry of this apartment were covered with articulated wood panels with linear etchings. The beige accent wall matches the large photograph.
Cottage-style Neutral Foyer with Refinished Wood Floors
Removing the louvered windows above the shelves, and opening up the entry to the dining room, redefined the look and feel of this front room. Refinished wood floors and fresh paint in a warm gray help to both soften and brighten the room, that now serves as a large, contiguous entertaining space.
A custom bar wall unit graces the open layout for the entertainment areas including the living and dining area. Wood lower cabinets contrasts with the white walls and upper cabinets. Mirror was used as a backsplash to create a sense of depth and reflect the interior lighting. To the right, shelves, storage and an artwork display provide further function to the unit.
For the new craft room, converted from a former breakfast room, Joanna Gaines commissioned a custom work table from furniture artisan Clint Harp. The 4' by 4' table has integrated shelf units that serve as supports at two corners.
Dream Playroom Features Teepee, Rope Swings and Floor Cushions
Chango and Co. created every child's dream play space in this expansive playroom. Floor mattresses line one wall and are topped with playful throw pillows for crashing, a teepee provides a place for dreaming, and rope swings hang from the ceiling for extra fun. A bold Swiss cross pattern livens up the walls, and black trim highlights the architectural features of the room.
Tyler custom-ordered the ladder through the contractor, Frawley Construction, as a clever way to access the upper bunk. The wood and brass details of the ladder add to the classic aesthetic of the space. The door is painted in high-gloss Benjamin Moore Hale Navy, and it leads to a small storage area under the eaves.
