Interior Sight Lines Create Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Living
Designers were careful to blend the indoor and outdoor spaces by taking advantage of sight lines from the home's interior design. The plants in the front courtyard and the back yard can be seen from the living room, kitchen, bedroom and hallways. Here, a sculptural cactus provides a backdrop for art inside the home.
Light and Dark Patterns Create an Eye Catching Space
In the foyer, designers expertly blend light and dark patterns to create a space that really catches the eye. The neutral pattern of the wall helps to keep the space feeling light, while the dark patterned carpet adds contrast while helping to hide dirt that might get tracked into the space. Finally, gold details finish off the design and add that extra bit of pizzaz the homeowner was looking for.
Before, a partial wall isolated the island from the rest of the kitchen. Now, the homeowners can easily interact while they enjoy a bowl of cereal or the morning news at the updated breakfast bar, as seen on HGTV's Brother Vs. Brother.
A focal point of the 2014 HGTV Dream Home's foyer, this Ming-inspired sideboard provides space for storage and display. Illuminated by two large table lamps, it also provides the perfect framing for a contemporary art accent.
This traditional foyer offers a light and bright feel with a cream wall color and white trim accents. The dark wood console provides a beautiful contrast to the pin parquet flooring, while also allowing for storage of small necessities.

Rich, dark wood beams, columns, railings and millwork make this upstairs landing in a contemporary beach home a beautiful space all its own. An eye-catching chandelier adds a delicate elegance while natural light fills the area, making it truly shine.
