Fresh pink patterned drapery, a stunning wool Moroccan area rug and a modernized mantel make this living room a happy and elegant conversation space. Originally a colonial style mantel, the new look was achieved with drywall and beautiful bright white plaster, which reflects natural light into the room and creates a fresh and modern feel. Designers emphasized the area with a chocolate brown accent wall above. Flanking the mantel with matching cabinets brings balance and adds storage.
Elegant simplicity is the name of the game for this home, and in the master bathroom, this is achieved through a neutral color palette and a modern design. The double vanity is made from gray and white marble resting on wood cabinets. The floor is brown tile with a gray and white center. There is nothing extra in this design, which makes the space feel clean and unhindered, while still remaining elegant.
Brown mosaic tile serves as a springboard for this bathroom's casual-chic design sensibility, while twin mirrors visually widen the space. The guest bathroom, from the 2012 HGTV Green Home, has beautifully finished wood cabinets and floors to warm up the room and red accents add a bright pop of color against white walls. The signature tile is a frosted glass micro-block in a tortoise shell-inspired shade. The upper-floor space also features interior windows opening to the adjacent tairwell.
The home office space needed to have plenty of storage and function, so designers added a lacquer and stained oak custom built-in unit with open shelving, cabinets and drawers, as well as a usable workspace for the desktop computer. When the computer is not in use, the free-standing desk provides another work space. To warm up the space and create a contrast from the monochromatic colors, designers brought in a brown, swivel, office chair for a comfy place to sit.
