“I wanted to break out of the typical nautical theme,” says designer Jenny Keenan of this beach home on Sullivan Island, South Carolina. An XL vintage chandelier made of capiz shells has jellyfish-esque luminescence. (For a similar one, try the 30-inch capiz shell pendant from RH.) Jenny paired it with patterned blue pillows — not a seahorse in sight! — and had a coffee table made by Grey Area to resemble a surfboard, with bright stripes and a shellac finish.
This kitchen features plenty of work and storage space in a very functional manner while creating a beautiful aesthetic with antique furnishings like the hand carved hutch from Indonesia. A glass beaded chandelier adds a delicate touch to the space and balances the more rustic nature of the hand carved hutch.
Most designers prefer to stay consistent with metal finishes in dining rooms, from the hardware and lighting and down to the flatware on the table. While stainless steel and pewter have remained the most popular choice nationwide, antique brass is a more unique yet classic and timeless option. In this dining room, brass was used on the chandelier, the Brutalist mirror sculpture and in the framing of the children’s art.
This master suite's makeup vanity takes advantage of the natural light pouring in from the large window bank above it. The light, airy curtains give the space a little privacy, while still allowing light to flow into the room. The neutral color palette and the elegance of nature are present again in this part of the suite with the soft blues and whites of the desk and chairs, as well as the soft linen chandelier above the desk.
A floating cantilevered buffet helps this transitional dining room appear larger while providing extra storage and easy access to serving. The cool blue walls, with complementing curtains, contrast the unique vintage dining room set, while a smoked crystal chandelier creates an attractive elegance. Framed water colors add splashes of color and tie the room together with an additional burst of color in the napkins.
In this renovated guest bedroom, Karen and Mina repainted the walls and replaced the floors to give the space a fresh, neutral color palette. To create warmth in the space, Karen and Mina, of HGTV's Good Bones, used shades of brown, to make the room warm and inviting. They also added reclaimed wood accents and and an industrial chandelier to create interest and highlight the elegant, industrial design they were going for.
In this two-story sitting room, large windows have full-length drapery framing a large, elegant painting of a red dress. A low-hanging, crystal and glass chandelier is above a coffee table, pair of chairs, and ornate white sofa. The chair backs angle the opposite direction of the unique sofa for a complimentary effect, and all are placed on a brown area rug with white detail.
As seen on HGTV's hit show, Fixer Upper, the formal dining room in this home was moved to the sunporch to create a unique space for entertaining. With plenty of natural light, the space feels bright and open, while the brick fireplace makes the space feel a part of the home. A new, rustic dining room table brings this space to life, as the new chandelier helps to light the space and add a touch of elegance.
The remodeled dining area -- in warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal -- exemplifies the casual, comfortable vibe the Kitchen Cousins were going for with this renovation. To add historic character to the dining room, stamped-tin tiles were installed on the ceiling. The tiles are in varied patterns alternating between linear, medallion and floral designs. An impressive chandelier adds a touch of elegance to the space.
An expanse of wenge wood plays with the recesses in the drywall to create a voluminous and open airy space with grand geometric elements. Eye-catching pendant lights, hung at assorted heights to create a mobile-like chandelier, are prominent centerpieces hung over assorted seating, from sofas and chairs to a long, leather bench around a chic glass coffee table, ideal for casual conversation or quiet reflection in this peaceful living environment.
In the foyer of this cozy, yet spacious cabin retreat, a sliding barn door and wood-paneled walls introduce visitors to the home's rustic ambiance from the moment they step inside. A narrow niche houses a built-in bench, a perfect spot to perch and pull off your boots. Draperies dress the windows that flank the front door, and the panels draw to offer nighttime privacy. A wagon wheel-style chandelier adds sparkle while keeping with the cozy cabin feel.
Soon after purchasing their home, the homeowners were ready to redesign the entertaining hub of the home. A custom-designed drop ceiling with bubble pendant chandelier defines the new dining room, which pairs a chic woodgrain table with sleek black chairs. Anchored at the end of the living space is the wet bar and frameless glass wine room, each outlined with bookmatched wood walls and ceilings. The end result is a series of spaces that feature the homeowners' sophisticated style and taste.
In the master bedroom, the wall on which the bed rests is covered in a gorgeous, metallic silver grass cloth that conceals the hidden door to the closet. Above the mirrored, four-poster bed, a brass chain link chandelier makes a bold statement, while rich texture was added with black faux fur pillow shams and blanket at the food of the bed. To personalize the space even further, designers had a modern, monogram printed on metallic linen.
Ample sunlight and a soothing desert-inspired color palette prove a winning combination in the spa-style master bathroom of the HGTV Dream Home 2010. A drop-in bathtub is encompassed in black-speckled white tiles and given a soft vibe with a row of illuminated candles. A candle chandelier hangs above a painted sage green double vanity, which is contrasted by the dark blue color accents used to trim the doorways.
For the foyer and stairwell in the Madcap Cottage interior design team's North Carolina home, hand-painted details inspired by great English country estates brought the once-dark space to life. There's a "tented" ceiling, painted floors and a hand-painted pagoda chandelier from a consignment shop. The designers are authors of "Prints Charming: Create Absolutely Beautiful Interiors with Prints & Patterns."
The entrance to this long master bedroom is in the middle of one wall, so designer Claire Paquin created a layout with two separate zones on either side of the entrance — one for sleeping and one for relaxing. A large piece of artwork centered on the outside wall acts as a focal point and helps merge the spaces together. Matching chandeliers and a long, continuous rug also help to connect the two spaces.
`The dining set in this Midcentury Modern dining room was inherited by the homeowners who wished to have it included in the redesign of their home, so designers added some funky art an fun colors and textures to the space. Yellow modern art adds a cool pop of color to gray walls, and a modern chandelier is suspended above the table. To complete the space, new raw silk drapery was added to the windows to give the homeowners the option of privacy.
The homeowners were not interested in a white kitchen, but instead wanted something with a little bit of color, so designers brought in custom walnut cabinetry to bring the space to life. Those cabinets were topped with Luche de Luna quartzite counters and a waterfall island in the same stone. Finally, the design was finished with royal blue velvet stools with gold legs that bring out the warmth in the quartzite and complement the Brutalist chandelier.
