It's all about the details in this beautiful Chicago foyer beginning with a chevron section in the hardwood flooring. A patterned rug runs up the center of the stairs adding color to the neutral space. Large open doorways create an open and spacious feel.
This small powder room has big personality. The floating vanity opens up the space and allows the eye to move easily and enjoy the chic chevron flooring. The wallpaper's vertical pattern moves the eye up which makes the room appear larger. According to designer Susan Jamieson "the wallpaper looks like porcupine quills and is a playful and perfect juxtaposition to the chevron floor. It's really okay to mix patterns in small spaces as long as you create visual balance and keep the eye moving."
On the home's second floor, the master bathroom has a simple, contemporary design. A neutral color palette keeps the space light and bright, while a tile floor laid out in a chevron pattern gives the space texture. To complete the space, a shower sits off to the side of a soaker tub that rests in front of a floor to ceiling window that gives the space a perfect view of the home's backyard.
A top trick by designers for making a living space feel more homey is adding a fun rug to the flooring, even when you already have carpet. You don't have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on an area or antique rug to fill the entire space. Instead, look for one in a pattern that adds pizzazz, like this cowhide rug that designer Michelle Mentzer with Miles Design Group in metro Atlanta picked up at Ikea. She also got the pictures of landscape art and the chevron and plush accent pillows on a discount at HomeGoods.
As seen on Good Bones, Karen and Mina wanted to continue the elegant, industrial style into this bathroom, so they carried the reclaimed wood floor into this space.
