As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers John Colaneri and Anthony Corrino replaced the claustrophobia-inducing wall with a knee wall, making room for the new kitchen peninsula with sleek, integrated appliances.
This airy kitchen with plentiful storage has ample room to cook and eat at the modern, spacious island. White counters enhance the bright space while hanging glass pendant lights feel modern and chic while illuminating the work space.
In the nook between this home's kitchen and living room, the designers painted the walls and the ceiling dark gray to give more of a bright and open feeling when entering into the other spaces which are white.
The dark natural wood ceiling beam and matching wood base of the bar standout against the polished white fixtures of this kitchen design. The bar space is anchored to a column and set up with three metal barstools under a pair of pendant lights with an industrial flair. A chevron tile backsplash subtly decorates the room.
This hidden garden is a peaceful oasis in Charleston's downtown. It's also a lovely place for the Gilkeson's guests to wake up. The guest quarters, which are situated beyond the garden, feature a small living area, kitchen and other amenities that afford visitors both privacy and an incredible view.
Though white is the more usual color for garden trellises, fences and window boxes, black gates and window boxes in this Charleston garden give a more sophisticated look and don't tend to show wear and tear as quickly as white.
Vibrant heuchera plants in the table container and mandevilla in the oversized container complement the punchy fabrics on outdoor furniture here. Try coordinating fabrics, rugs and containers — as well as plants — outdoors to make a design statement.
Designed by Wagner Hodgson Landscape Architecture, a wood-burning fireplace was cast in place of concrete with a board-form finish. Its covered position protects it from the summer winds in its Vermont setting.
