Accessorizing with vintage winter sporting equipment, such as skis, snowshoes, a sled and skates, gives a rustic cottage appearance to a North Carolina front porch decorated by blogger Amy Buchanan of AttaGirlSays. The sports equipment joins yard sale finds, including the table, vintage wooden toolbox and the dresser frame.
Home decor blogger Amy Buchanan started with a yard sale table and layered in finds, such as a tobacco stick star, a pinecone garland and a frame from an old dresser. Ticking ribbon and wooden Christmas trees painted to look like old grain sacks are in keeping with the farmhouse theme. "I love collecting vintage items throughout the year, then mixing them together to create rustic and farm-style vignettes," says Buchanan, who blogs at AttaGirlSays.
A walk-through closet connects the master bathroom to a newly renovated master bath complete with a luxurious walk-in shower clad in marble. Warm woods combine with cool neutrals in the contemporary space. A bold rug adds a punch of pattern and color.
A large blue sofa turns the corner in this deep navy living room. Alternating neutral and blue pillows line the sofa for a checkerboard effect. A blue-and-white spotted rug complements the color scheme, and an acrylic-topped wood coffee table catches light from the window.
Dark blue walls set the scene for a cozy game room and bar. Built-in shelves provide storage for all the bar essentials, while a grouping of leather armchairs surround the game table for comfortable gatherings.
By removing three of the kitchen's walls, designers opened up the kitchen to the rest of the home. Now, whoever is preparing a meal or enjoying one at the breakfast bar can be included in the action in the rest of the home.
The dining room was awkward and small, so designers covered the walls with a fun, gold malachite wallpaper and addd a linear chandelier to distract from the odd lines on the space and draw the eye to the center of the space. To bring in a bigger sense of richness, designers brought in bold purples to accent the gold wallpaper. At the entrance to the space, a surfboard and photography add a playful contrast to the formal, elegant dining space.
This eclectic room works as a dining room or a game room with a multipurpose, black felt pool table as the centerpiece. Two large black velvet armchairs cap the ends of the table with smaller, green leather-upholstered chairs lining the sides. A neutral and black wallpaper pattern swirls throughout the room, creating a nice pattern contrast to the animal print rug.
White hexagonal tile provides texture on the walls of this contemporary bathroom, while patterned black-and-white floor tile brings the space visual punch. The rich wood tone of the floating vanity helps ground the room and warm up the palette of cool neutrals.
The view into the dining area shows how the white painted ship lap accent wall allows the plants and wood furniture to come to life. White chairs at the ends of the table add an extra pop of style to the dining set up. Hanging succulents and indoor plants add natural life and color to the design.
