A light color palette and white vaulted ceiling with recessed lighting keeps this kitchen feeling open and spacious. Gray floors provide soft contrast to the all-white cabinets and neutral tile backsplash for a transitional design.
This country kitchen has a carved hutch with glass door cabinets that feature an array of traditional flatware and stoneware. Eggshell hued cabinets match the hutch and a simple rose arrangement provides a splash of color.
This gender neutral nursery branches out with a nautical theme that spans the entire room. Light blue walls and buttercream beadboard create the perfect backdrop for a distressed navy crib and a built-in bookshelf.
Turn beadboard on its side for a whole new bathroom look, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. The horizontal lines of the beadboard can make a small room appear wider than a traditional vertical design. You can also use mirrors in multiple spots, to increase the glamour and spacious feel of a bathroom.
Contemporary fixtures and a circle-in-the-square mirror contrast with the traditional white beadboard walls in this cottage’s small bathroom, while a petite mermaid perched on the floating vanity adds just the right touch of whimsy.
Used on a portion on the wall, beadboard creates a cozy cottage feel in this renovated bathroom. A large mirror above the trough sink reflects light and adds depth. The white vanity and marble countertop are timeless and chic bathroom fixtures.
Wicker mid-century modern dining chairs make for a surprising but stylish pairing with the rustic wood and metal dining table. White beadboard walls and ceilings lighten up the space and give it a country cottage feel. The round Edison bulb chandelier adds an industrial element that doesn't compete with other pieces in the room due to its airy design.
Light blue painted floor to ceiling beadboard adds cottage style warmth to this transitional bedroom. An airy blue motif carries from the natural light illuminated walls to the quilted bedspread where pillows splashed with color interrupt but do not disturb the calm flow of the space. A white tufted headboard, modern floor lamp and plush area rug add extra bits of texture and surprise.
Two long runs of counter space give plenty of room in this cottage kitchen. Blue-painted antique corbels hold open shelving and support the peninsula overhang, bringing vintage-inspired whimsy to the space. Designer Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's "Sarah's Summer House," chose three different cabinet colors to create a dynamic color palette. She used natural materials and a lighthearted color for the backsplash, and the seeded glass cabinet doors bring an extra touch of softness.
The slate floor in this mudroom is the perfect base for a space that's sure to get messy. The dark tone hides dirt and mud well and is easy to clean. White wainscoting and high ceilings give the room a clean feel — even when it's not.
The water inspired Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's Sarah's Summer House, to decorate this guest bedroom with cool blues and greens. A striped vintage rag rug complements bold green-and-white sheets that counterbalance the feminine blue decorative pillows. The curves in the headboard and fabric represent waves in the water, adding to the coastal feel of the room.
Exposing the original hardwood flooring and beadboard walls revitalize this space while paying respect to its history. The bead board, though freshly painted, is left in its semi-distressed state, with original nail holes and cracks from aging.
Everything about this living room was designed with comfort in mind. A large sectional sofa and leather armchair provide plenty of seating, while the room's open floor plan and proximity to the kitchen makes it easy to entertain friends and family.
Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's "Sarah's Summer House," went for rustic charm when designing the living room. The room seems as if it's perched over the water with its wraparound windows. She arranged the seating around the perimeter of the room so each seat has the perfect view of the water. The shades of blue in the upholstery represent the water, and layering the different patterns, like ikat, floral and striped, gives the room a lighthearted look.
