The intimate and zen-like outdoor living space offers tranquility with comfortable seating areas surrounded by the elements of earth, fire and water. Floor-to-ceiling glass and steel windows and doors seamlessly connect the exterior of the home to the interior. The soaring roof with massive copper overhangs provides shade, and a rammed earth wall sections off the master bedroom's access to the pool.
Architects designed this modern home so that the entire structure has either access to or a view of the patio and swimming pool, creating a unique, inclusive design. On the first floor, large glass doors and tons of windows allow direct access to the back patio and backyard, while the second floor bedrooms are given a clear view of the spaces at the rear of the home.
This gray and red boys' bedroom is perfect for this family's little ones. With cool modern bunkbeds that have storage built in, there is plenty of space left on the floor to play. On either side of the bunk bed, matching bookshelves let each boy have a space to express himself. The room is bathed in plenty of light from the windows, so the space is still bright and exciting.
A bright white base allows pops of color to bring this space to life. Multicolored fish swim the walls of this aquatic-themed girls' bedroom. A lime-green area rug and turquoise-blue dresser add bold color to the white wainscoting. Pulled from color in the fish-print wallpaper, an aqua border around the white Roman shades allows the window treatment to stand out from the colorful patterned walls.
With great window views and a little extra head space, any guest is sure to enjoy this lofted bedroom. The reclaimed wood floors add elements of pattern and texture opposite the white shiplap ceiling mimicking the floor’s pattern. Having a second option for a private space in one tiny home is a huge asset for families.
Keeping a neutral palette gives this bedroom design an air of sophistication and victorian class. The wall hangings behind the bed were displayed at the same elevation as the armoire; window treatments to the ceiling were used at the same height to reduce the skyscraper effect. The bed linens and tufted headboard add pleasing texture and depth to the design.
Like the living areas, the bedrooms make good use of the natural light that spills in from the beach. Though the room is small, the white color of the walls and ceiling help the space to appear larger with the help of the full length curtains and large windows. To keep the light, open feeling in the space, designers kept the furniture to a minimum, so as not to clutter the room.
To create a clear separation between the public and private space of the house, architects use materials that would delineate the two spaces. The first story-the public spaces of the home-is filled with windows that allow in natural light and create a transparency from one side of the house to the other. However, on the second floor, where the bedrooms are, architects used stucco to create a more private feel for those spaces.
A quintessential log cabin with panoramic views of Yellowstone National Park – sign us up. The $1.9 million property sits on 40 acres of wildflower meadows in Big Sky, Montana's Big EZ community. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, the 1,800-square-foot home brings rustic style to life with reclaimed wood floors and a hand-stacked stone fireplace. Picturesque windows and spacious porches guarantee breathtaking views.
In the upstairs guest bedroom, a mint green accent wall ties this room's design into the rest of the home. A large double window lets in plenty of natural light and is reflected off the white walls and ceiling and the mirrors hanging above each twin bed. A point of interest in this room is the white French doors that open into the upstairs living area, creating a sense of connectedness between the two spaces.
To make way for a large walk-in shower, the existing tub was removed. Rectangular porcelain tile with a bamboo effect is installed vertically to add visual height in the shower. A contemporary shower panel with contrasting natural bamboo and sleek stainless steel creates an eye-catching display. The glass block window streams natural light through the door-less shower entrance and can be seen from the bedroom.
This cozy bedroom features layers of textures and pattern all set against a striking black feature wall. The rustic, wooden bed frame stands out against the colorful and varied patterns of the throw pillow. To the right of the bed, a large ampersand, a symbol of connection that was widely featured in Tanika and Brian’s wedding sits by the window. Its weathered metal is a perfect echo of the weathered wood of the headboard - once a room divider that Tanika repurposed for the room.
Give yourself permission to move furniture, artwork and accessories among rooms on a whim. Just because you bought that armchair for the living room doesn't mean it won't look great anchoring a sitting area in your bedroom. And try perching a little-used dining-room table in front of a pretty window, top it with buffet lamps and other accessories, and press it into service as a beautiful writing desk or library table.
Homeowner Chad Alford had always wanted to live in a New York City loft, so his partner Tomas Frenes designed their townhome in Atlanta's Cabbagetown neighborhood to look like urban buildings. Custom sliding doors with smoked glass conceal the lower level office and guest room and upper level master bedroom and are designed to look like industrial windows, while exposed ductwork, a modern light fixture and spiral staircase add to the urban feel.
This sleek design studio boasts an angular cement exterior with sliding floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to the backyard for indoor/outdoor living. The guest bedroom on the top floor overlooks views of Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. This contemporary structure complements the main house that was designed and built 20 years prior to the design studio, but they work together seamlessly as if they were designed and built at the same time.

With a window between the bedroom and bathroom, plenty of natural light is able to flow into the room and make the space brighter. The sleek modern cabinets and clean white countertop and wall color makes the small space look larger and very clean, while the backsplash around the tub helps to give the walls a bit of color. The cabinets give the space much needed storage, while the double vanities make getting ready in the morning much easier.
As seen on HGTV's Elbow Room, the bedroom utilizes the angled roof line and features plenty of closet space, bold blue colors and a moveable bed that can be placed at the window for a beautiful lake view. The closets have custom designed wood doors that add a modern flare to the space. After the master suite renovation by licensed contractor Chip Wade, the Van Hattums now have a beautiful master suite and bathroom which combines their love for the old world style and modern conveniences.
