Curtains are hung from cornices and trimmed with fabric that mimics the damask design of the wall and headboard fabric, offering an unusual interpretation on the more conventional canopy bed in the 2006 Kips Bay Decorator Show House.
A wet bar rests in the back of the living space. This bar has bleached walnut cabinets and a marble countertop to keep the space feeling modern and sophisticated, but to make this area really pop, designers added a honey onyx backsplash with back lighting and floating star fire glass shelves, allowing this to be the focal point of the room, illuminating the living space.
A simple stone covers the back patio and pool area to keep it cool when the summer sun shines directly on it. Plenty of sitting and dining areas allow for taking in the seascape views while soaking up the sun or having a meal.
Recessed lighting paired with a row of black teardrop pendants keep this kitchen bright at any hour of the day. Sleek, polished cabinetry blends perfectly with the white countertop on the large island. Tall, low-back barstools create an eat-in area and still leave plenty of counter space for cook and prep work.
With its bistro lights, hydrangea bushes and views of the balcony above, this patio becomes a romantic retreat right in the owners' backyard. Here, a traditional wood table and set of chairs encourage dining al fresco, while the formal sitting area waits at the ready for drinks.
Built-in shelves with back lighting is a convenient and stylish way to store bottles at a wet bar. The smooth wood cabinets are accented with an illuminated copper-colored frame for an intriguing approach to the bar. Neutral stone tile floors blend the space into the rest of the room.
From the narrow entryway the space opens wide into the living room, a space made even bigger by the massive windows that look out to Manhattan. This space epitomizes Tanika’s “laid-back luxe stye” combining mid-century modern furnishings with modern accessories for a casual yet sophisticated look. The soft, neutral color palette in this space adds to the relaxed feel while making full use of the light that the room receives. At the same time, light yet meaningful moments of pattern are added to the space through the rug and woven art feature on the wall.
This custom crafted shot glass display case adds a beautifully unique functional element to this home bar. The back lighting adds a cool light element to the warm look of the space. Stone flooring adds a textural element to the room below the tall, contemporary barstools and small, sleek bar.
Traditional sconces placed between each doorway light up the space for late-night get-togethers on the HGTV Dream Home 2015 back patio. Beautiful glass doors allow the interior lights to shine through.
Under a metal roof and steel beams, a collection of hammocks creates an inviting, cozy space to unwind and enjoy the magnificent lake view from the top floor porch. Recessed wall lights give off a warm glow at floor level.
As the name shows, one of Cast Shadows' properties is a fascination with the play of light in a space. Here a pared back design and subtle color help highlight other Cast Shadows elements: tile work and a light fixture that focus on graphic metalwork and grids.
Year after year, colored twinkle light bulbs are certain to burn out. Instead of tossing them, collect them for decorating wreath forms. Adding hot glue to the backs of discarded red bulbs, then using them to decorate the front of the wreath created an all red wreath.
