Rustic Neutral Den with Hardwood Brown Floors
The old, worn carpeting was removed, and the room now features dark stained hardwood flooring and area rugs. The low windows get new white trim, and the bead board on the walls and ceiling are painted in a muted gray-green.
The sloped ceiling, textured wallcovering and platform beds of this attic bedroom evoke the feeling of sleeping in a tent, an especially luxurious one. Between the beds, open shelving stores books and displays colorful accessories. A butterfly chair takes advantage of the big window and pretty view.
To enhance the vaulted ceiling in the entry, reclaimed beams and barn board were added. To balance that textural warmth, the V-groove below has a warm grey wash on it, and dark charcoal on the doors and windows adds lovely contrast. Repeating that same desire for contrast, the lighting is bronze and iron tones, topping off with a mirrored star in the vaulted area.
In a New York City apartment with a spectacular view of the city skyline, designer Amy Lau brought in “gorgeous, sweeping curves and natural materials” in the design of the built-in wet bar to offset the linear visuals. “Organic shapes and materials strikes the perfect balance with the cityscape,” she says.
At loft level, this renovated rustic barn, now a live performance space, elevates reclaimed wood to its full potential. The vaulted ceiling, staircase railing and even the tables and chairs show a simple sumptuousness.
This rustic entrance features a neutral stone accent wall paired with gray stone flooring. A heavy wooden door is propped open to reveal the mountain view, while a green bench offers a place for sitting to remove shoes and snow attire.
Craft Room is a Creative Oasis for Mom and Her Children
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, the craft room was an oasis for mom and her children, so Joanna designed a space that would reflect that passion for creativity. Built-in cabinets provide plenty of storage so that organization is never an issue, while open shelving provides a place to show off colorful objects. The rustic desktop and metallic message board gives the space a splash of personality and ties the design in to the rest of the home, while the children have their own table, just the right size for them, to create their own art while their mom creates hers.
When guests enter this mountain retreat in Beaver Creek, Colo., they're greeted by a rustic rock wall, stone tile flooring and an oversized black-and-white photo. A curvy entry table with a bold orange top adds a splash of color to the space, while a leather chair reflects the rustic style of the space.
