Wood beams create a deep coffered ceiling that mirrors the low height of the fixtures in the living room. Bulb pendant lights hang over the living room adding a sheen to the leather finish of the orange armchairs and brown sectional. A slate fireplace surround adds a cool tone accent perfect for contrasting the warm wood of the design.
The carriage house suite was designed to accentuate air and light, as evidenced by the large windows and open beam ceiling.

The suite features hand-scraped reclaimed pecan floors.
Natural wood beams on the ceiling combine with clean-lined cabinetry to create a kitchen filled with juxtapositions.

A high-ceilinged foyer is surrounded by shiny metal beams and topped by a gridwork skylight that brings loads of natural light into this contemporary Reno home.

Architectural detail abounds in this space, from the inlaid flooring to the beamed, cathedral-height ceiling, to the custom wrought-iron balcony rails. A Medieval-inspired chandelier gives a nod to the castle-like detailing in the home's architecture. A stone fireplace creates a focal point, and traditional furnishings are in proportion with the room's generous dimensions.
The client wanted a classic kitchen that was also very clean-cut. To do this, designer Peter Salerno used a white painted perimeter with a long walnut island, coupled with marble countertops and white beams on the ceiling to pull it all together. The high contrast in the kitchen helps keep it looking clean.
This elegant, feminine bedroom uses pinks and blues to make the space feel warm and inviting. The pink bedspread, accented by the blue throw and floral dust ruffle, makes the space feel warm and inviting. Color is added throughout the space with the exposed beams in the ceiling and the woven burlap rug at the foot of the bed.
A large stainless steel grill makes up a portion of the outdoor kitchen, which serves a covered patio for a stone mansion in Colorado.

The intricate pattern on the drum shade pendant is repeated on the backs of upholstered dining chairs, while seats are swathed in the same green as the interior of two built-in china cabinets. The result is a perfectly pulled together space loaded with casual charm. Traditional architectural details include a paneled, beamed ceiling and transom windows.
A new fireplace was added in the living room, creating a visual focal point with its neutral rock facing and built-in benches on either side.

The custom railing, wood stair treads, beams, and stained beadboard ceiling treatments all collaborate in making this a successful updated brownstone.

This light and bright bedroom features a blue floral wallpaper accent wall and exposed beam ceiling.

In this open living space, first seen on HGTV's Design Star, oversized artwork takes up as much room as the lofted bed. A rustic sideboard, printed throw pillow and colorful picture frames mix for a bohemian look. Meanwhile, the concrete support beam and ceiling have urban and industrial undertones.
A gorgeous black and white chest wows in this room with white walls and a black floor. White stripes on the black rug run perpendicular to the exposed beams in the ceiling.

A weathered wood farmhouse table teams with tailored upholstered wingback chairs, creating a fun juxtaposition in this breezy dining room. Graphic wallpaper adds interest on the wall, while natural wood beams turn the ceiling into a focal point in its own right. A sputnik-style chandelier with a dark bronze finish brings an additional unexpected touch.
Blue-framed French doors open out to the front yard from this lovely cottage living room. A gray velvet sectional faces the glass coffee table and charming white brick fireplace.

In this focal fireplace by architect Jim Rill, Pennsylvania flagstone distinguishes the fireplace surround and floor, and the mantel and trim are made of clear fir to complement the mission-style furniture and exposed beam ceiling beautifully. Note how placing the TV off to one side rather than directly above the hearth keeps the focus on the fireplace.
The classic Mediterranean style of this kitchen is carried into the adjoining dining and living areas.

A vaulted ceiling with rich wood beams cap off this kitchen's grandeur.
