In sunny Florida, there’s often no need to keep the car inside the garage—which leaves this space open for creative conversion. Here, the team at B + G Design transformed a Miami garage into a luxurious home theater, complete with upholstered seating, dramatic lighting and colorful artwork to brighten the space when there’s nothing on screen.
This sophisticated master bedroom features charcoal gray walls paired with pure white design accents, like the bed linens, platform bed and tufted bench. Mirrored nightstands sit on either side of the bed, while a glamorous chandelier hangs above the bed.
Sea-inspired light hues blend beautifully to create a calm and stylish design in this transitional bedroom. Plant circles on the accent wall add a subtle design to the solid bed coverings and bed frame. A mirrored nightstand and a metallic lamp bring a reflective quality to polish off the design.
To give off the inviting sentiment of the Italian culture, the designer wanted to ensure authenticity of materials, as seen in the custom-made cabinetry and furnishing frames. A stainless steel range hood hangs over the kitchen island drawing the eye to the center of the room. A yellow patterned tile section gives a faux rug look and brightens the room with a pop of bold color.
Cabinet lighting highlights the glass storage and tile backsplash illuminating the back wall of the bar. Sconce lighting creates a low light atmosphere perfect for the lounge vibe. Bar seating opens up to a pair of leather gray armchairs expanding the room and allowing for choices in seating.
The geometric headboard above the bed is a custom walnut bed and headboard created by Susan Jamieson of Bridget Beari Designs using custom paint colors named for dogs (proceeds go to rescue groups). Brass lamps rest on black nightstands and a chunky knit gray throw is at the foot of the bed. The room was designed by Jamieson for a Southeastern Designer Showhouse in Atlanta.
A tile fireplace surround wall shimmers in the light of decorative pendant lights in this moroccan style lounge. Large floor pillows bring bold, vibrant color to the room and create an cozy atmosphere. The “wood” flooring is actually of noce travertine, chosen for its ability to better withstand the Florida humidity and social traffic.
Tuscan influence brings an old world feel to this kitchen design. A brick ceiling and accent wall add beautiful texture to the room and compliment the color scheme. Wicker bar chairs allow eat-in seating below a low hanging, decorative light fixture filling the open space between the room and the tall ceiling.
Nodding to the Italians’ great use of color, the dining room is enveloped in raspberry grass cloth wallpaper. A large, lamp-shade chandelier hangs over a long wood dining table adorned with a dainty runner and floral centerpiece. Upholstered armchairs are fixed at the ends of the table with wood chairs lining the sides.
An angled bed placement offers a contemporary touch to the traditional design of this room. The oversized, velvet tufted headboard offers some structure to the arrangement of the bed, and heavy curtains of the same gray tone balance the design.
This master bedroom, designed by Haddad Hakansson Design Studio, follows the sleek lines found in the rest of the home, yet here a more traditional design aesthetic is observable. The rich brown platform bed and bedding and the splash of color in the bed pillows anchor the room, while the large dark wood mirror and landscape art complement their effect.
A bold red canopy bed takes center stage in this light blue bedroom. A navy and white floral chair and striped pendant lighting provide contrast to the red bed, creating a soothing, nautical-inspired design.
The master bedroom includes a custom wood bed that features niche shelving and built-in nightstands on either side of the bed. A light wood ceiling and darker hardwood flooring complete this mod design.
