Designer Tiffany Brooks was inspired by the Gothic architecture of churches found in Texas for HGTV Smart Home 2019. This inspiration permeates the home down to details like the traditional metal pulls on this floating wood vanity that bring to mind church doors.
A Byzantine-style alcove, the conversation room is crowned with an 18-foot-high central dome that is decorated with a floral hand-painted gold and blue design in 24k gold-leaf modeled after the church of St. John Lateran in Rome.
Set off your sculptures in a section of the garden with another sculpture, such as an arbor, pergola, gazebo or trellis. This outdoor room, by garden designer Susanne Hudson, incorporates Gothic-style church windows.
As part of the McIntyre home transformation in Atlanta, GA, licensed contractor Chip Wade included a pullout pantry for ample storage, an expanding kitchen table for increased seating and a buffet style kitchen layout for prep, cooking and easy cleaning. Many elements were added for ease of use including this expandable table. The design aesthetic mimicked a sleek industrial kitchen, but added natural and warm elements like the tree trunk sink, wood table and brick floors. The transformation also includes open seating area to host family and church members, as seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room.
