TaLaya and Kerrick found their 1500 square foot home to be a storage challenge. This living room features one of TaLaya’s most creative solutions: a large wooden armoire. Woven cane gives the piece a handmade look that is beautifully complemented by the other woven elements in the space. Of particular interest is the patterned basket that ties together the colors of the rug and pillows in the room. The brass stool and accessories deepen the layers of metallic color in the space.
In this space, designers have created a nursery/playroom combination for the homeowners. Beautiful wood doors that are original to the home open to reveal an elegant nursery on the other side of the play space. The walls in the two spaces have been clothed in a unique, teal color, creating a bold space for the kids to enjoy. On floating shelves, an extensive collection of children's books awaits reading hour, while woven baskets provide a stylish place for toy storage.
Sleek and sophisticated, this custom vanity is stocked with storage options. Designer Tracy Black designed this elegant, oversized piece, which measures an eye-catching nine feet long and 25 inches deep. "A vanity is so much more practical and functional with deep drawers instead of just doors," she says. The roomy drawers and center cabinets easily accommodate bath and beauty products, hair-styling tools and more. The lower open shelf is a practical spot for storing towels or baskets and prevents the vanity from overpowering the room.
HGTV fan Beachyone wanted guests to be surrounded by the soothing feel of the ocean both indoors and out. The guest bedroom at this beachfront home was turned into a vacation oasis with a pastel color scheme of green, peach and white, and accessorized with wicker baskets, marine life prints and dark Roman shades to keep out the sun for afternoon naps. To make your guests feel comfortable and welcome, keep the amenities and feel of a hotel in mind. Maintain a soothing color scheme, plenty of pillows, storage space and bathroom essentials. And of course, mirror the home's surroundings. The weathered oars, sand-filled table lamps and natural accessories will constantly remind them that they're on vacation.
