Designer Marie Burgos adds an exotic, Zen vibe to this Asian-inspired living room with a bust and hand of Buddha. Fresh splashes on apple green in the trunks used instead of a coffee table add to the room's globe-trotting flair.
The Zen garden outside this home gives the family a great space for relaxation. Inspired by an Asian garden, the bonsai trees, koi pond and Asian statues give the family the perfect spot for meditation.
Meticulously designed with special attention placed in the tiniest of details, every surface was considered. This condo is full of luxurious textiles, rich color palettes, attractive textures and a daring mix of old and new.
What began as a simple covered picnic area wound up as a Thai-inspired garden retreat, giving HGTV fan kimsplay additional privacy in the yard and a place to put Thai furniture and art pieces collected during many trips abroad.
In the bathroom, designers used the modern, Asian motif from the rest of the home to bring in unique features that give this space a spa like feel. The window above the large soaking tub gives the space plenty of natural light, while the bamboo wood panel helps to create some privacy between the spa space and the outdoors. To create privacy inside the home, panels of frosted glass create a space in the bathroom that is separate from the rest of the room's spaces; however, by using panels of glass rather than glass sheets, designers were able to keep the bath area from feeling cut off and separate-keeping the room's design flow continuous-while still giving this space an amount of privacy.
Wood walls are accented by white cabinets for a clean and warm look in the Francis family's newly renovated kitchen and living room in Atlanta, Ga. By knocking out walls in the existing kitchen and closing in the deck, the Francis family will now have a central space to share meals together and will also give Tricia a better chance to watch the kids while she's in the kitchen, as seen on HGTV and DIY Network's Elbow Room.
