A simple hat hanging on the door provides a cozy touch while blue and white plaid curtains lend to the overall rustic feel of the space. A floral print and black and white photography on cream colored paneled walls and painted floor make this room a quaint, warm environment.
This outdoor space boasts plenty of Texas charm and was actually created to resemble an open-range saloon. To shade the existing concrete patio and add Southern flair, the designers created a cedar arbor in a fan-shaped pattern. The kitchen and grill area were built with block and dry stack stone. Adjacent to the kitchen, there's even a fire pit and additional seating for extra guest entertainment.
The removal of the wall that separates the kitchen and the living room creates a more open space for dinners and entertaining. The new white kitchen has new non-slip tiles (for the aging dogs), new cabinets, appliances, and lighting, as well as in-floor heating (for the dogs). The kitchen is also surrounded by built in pocket dog doors which allows the homeowners to contain the dogs in a comfortable environment while they are away. As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It Too.
This transitional kitchen remodel from HGTV Star Season 8 for homeowners Jair and Tiffany Paz features a built-in breakfast bar with a custom bar top and stool seating.

As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It Too, the floors in this living room have been sanded and stained, and the fireplace has a new insert and ties. The shelving beside the fireplace is floating and the dog doors have been built into ledges that double as a location to place a beverage.
In the old space, the sink was a stand alone vanity, not leaving any space for other appliances. With the new cabinets and sink, the Kitchen Cousins were able to put a new built-in dishwasher for the Grahams. This is a huge addition to the new kitchen. There was always room for a dishwasher, but no place to put one till now. As seen on HGTV's "Kitchen Cousins".

This girl's bedroom is designed to be elegant with a classic feel, yet very girly. Lots of textures give richness to the room, and the beautiful raspberry and blue tones create a space that is one of kind. The color of the built in unit is continued around the room in the baseboards and moldings. A thin-line patterned wallpaper creates an accent wall behind the crib wall while an upholstered desk bench and solid accent panel create a bolder color saturation on the opposite wall.
Entertain in elegance with this formal living room, complete with ornate sage and blue sofas, built-in wood bookshelves and hearth, an exquisite oriental rug, custom drapery, and patterned ottoman.

As with all city gardens, space is at a premium, and in planning a great design, sometimes we are stuck with an eyesore. For this project, the landscapers at K&D Landscape Management built an outdoor pergola to mitigate the obtrusiveness of an structure that had to remain intact. With their magic wand, they transformed this piece into an attractive backdrop for the owners' outdoor grill, using the same fencing material that encloses the property.
The homeowner had an empty room that she wanted to transition into a classical home library. The room is situated directly adjacent to her formal living room and was created using character grade walnut. Featuring built-in cabinetry and ottomans with green velvet cushions, the color of which were chosen to mimic the outdoors and enhance the wood tones in the space, the library space has plenty of seating, but the ottomans are not fixed, meaning that they can be relocated to provide additional seating to the formal living room if necessary.
To give a London kitchen a striking focal point (not to mention acres of built-in storage), designer Egon Walesch had a haberdashery display cabinet from a department store cut down to size to create a unique kitchen island. “Toughened (or tempered) glass provides an excellent work surface, and the drawers, previously used for storing gloves, scarves and hats, provide excellent space to accommodate and display treasured crockery and table linens,” says Walesch.
This newly built, lovely Lake Minnetonka home was placed on the lot in order to take advantage of the beautiful view of the lake. To make better use of the home's lower level space, homeowners commissioned designers to create a new pool, a spa, walking paths, a patio for outdoor entertaining and retaining walls to help control the flow of rainwater away from their home and new outdoor space.
Peeking around the corner of this cedar-shingled home, visitors arrive at an elevated wood deck on a concrete paver and gravel pathway.

Instead of piling logs along the side of your house for all to see, slide them under a bench with built-in storage, like this DIY design from Lowe's. Positioned near your fire pit or outdoor oven, the seat gives easy access to fuel when it's time to stoke the fire.
Entertainment is very important to these homeowners, so designers created the home's public spaces to be connected and functional for the family and their guests. The kitchen, which is on the other side of the built in bar, is physically connected to the living room by the bar's pass through, as well as the eat in area, which has direct access to both the kitchen and living room. In the living room, designers brought in a sectional and complementary chairs to give the homeowners additional seating in their space.
