This view from the kitchen at the 2014 HGTV Dream Home showcases the textural and open feel of the transitional space and open layout of the lower floor. The spectacular kitchen's highlights include vaulted ceiling, exposed wood beams, sleek metallic, black kitchen appliances, marble counters and kitchen chairs that provide a bright yellow accent.
Fiorella Design custom designed the bed and nightstands and then flank the bed with simple black sconces. A dramatic chandelier is paired with exposed ceiling beams to bring the eye up. The bedroom opens up to a home office, master bathroom and walk-in closets, and pocket doors are used to close off the space for a streamlined look.
After parting ways with their beloved Victorian home in San Francisco and relocating to Los Angeles, Caitlin Murray's clients knew they wanted their Craftsman to reflect their Gothic tastes. So Murray created an unexpected, blended design, starting with the living room. Here, lilac ceiling beams and a floral accent wall balance a moody blue velvet sofa and dramatic black area rug.
Open wall space connecting to the kitchen leaves the dining room feeling open and comfortable. Tufted leather chairs create a sleek set up around the natural wood dining table. An elegant table setting complete with large stone candlesticks is lit by the curled chandelier hanging between wood ceiling beams. Black metal letters decorate the wall spelling "Home" for an extra inviting detail.
For the renovation, the clients' desire was to strike a balance between mountain-rustic and modern, so they kept the exposed beams, wood ceiling and walls to bring the rustic look into the design. They modernized the space by adding sleek, white cabinets and black countertops. Then, they added cool pendant lights, a bold wall color, a matching backsplash and unique window treatments. The open shelves give the couple storage space while displaying the couple's dishes.
This kitchen channels both Spanish and Mexican styling with colorful walls, shelves and pottery. The large metallic mirror hanging over the range is a statement piece that brings more light and space to the room. Designer Emily Severinsen chose a deep orange wall color and carried it through to the pottery, which holds a variety of kitchen utensils. The green tea color on the range hood and cabinets is a refreshing contrast against the bold, rustic metal tile backsplash and cultural artwork. Natural elements like the sabino wood kitchen island and wooden ceiling beams add a country look, while the black modern stools rejuvenate the space. The oversized antique mirror makes the kitchen feel larger and more open.
