This streamlined bathroom is both functional and stylish. Blue accents in the backsplash and tile border of the tub surround add coastal color in the mostly neutral space. Sinks with squared edges are paired with modern faucets, adding to the room's sleek design.
The smooth dark wood of the cabinetry pops against the light, neutral marble tile of the floor and bright, white ceiling. The beautiful cherry-colored countertop perfectly displays the unique Asian vases and the flowers, bringing a small touch of color. In the background, a rectangle table with square stools can be pulled out for seating or stored easily against the wall.
A vintage vanity gives an old world charm to the traditional design in this neutral bathroom. A square patterned wallpaper gives a uniform look to the surrounding walls while a mix of marble tile colors coats the floor. The marbled ceiling ties in the floor finish with the color of the walls.
Delicate iron chandeliers above the marble island contribute to the traditional kitchen's elegance. The mint-green walls are a perfect color accent to the neutral cabinets and square sink tile. Tall neutral chairs allow seating at the island with a view to the shelved TV.
Add an unexpected splash of color to the inside of your vanity, dresser or nightstand drawers by painting them a bold hue, like this shade of vibrant yellow. The bright, citrusy color brings an unexpected energy to the black and white room. Small black and white tile creates a modern, digital look on the floor below the square sink.
The neutral marble tile used on the floor is continued on the shower walls. A decorative square frame adds detail to the bathtub. The large shower space is left open with a rain showerhead mounted above. Black accents contrast the neutral bathroom creating a warm and relaxing color palette.
A large neutral sectional sits against a neutral wall and rug in this contemporary living room. Red and zebra print throw pillows and a cow print stool add a pop of color and pattern to the room. A gray accent wall around the window matches the color palette of the tile flooring. A large square wooden coffee table sits in the middle.
Natural light floods this modern white staircase, making the space feel bright and breezy. Glide down the stairs and enjoy pops of color from eight small squares of art. Light bounces off the tile floor at the landing and catches the slender statue and pair of mustard yellow armchairs.
A palette of vivid colors, fanciful patterns, and rustic details define this 6,000-square-foot mountain ski home in Park City, Utah. In this bathroom, citrus hues in the tile and vanity mix with a lilac accent wall, giving the space a fun vibe that reflects the homeowners' playful persona.
Linoleum is made with renewable, biodegradable materials including linseed oil and cork. Mineral pigments are added to produce rich, vibrant colors. Linoleum produces no harmful vapors and is considered a top environmentally friendly flooring choice.
Linoleum comes as sheet goods designed for glue-down installation and as laminated planks and tiles that install as a floating floor system. Some manufacturers provide a protective coating that prevents staining and helps the product stand up to foot traffic. Linoleum without this coating should be refinished every two years.
Expect to pay $2 to $5 per square foot and $7 to $12 per square foot installed.
Although many homeowners invest the majority of their home design budgets into their kitchens, it's the area of Chris' condo where he spent the least. By working with the brown and black tones of his existing granite countertops, he used color to give the otherwise basic, modern kitchen a personalized look. Glossy-black penny round tiles bought for $8 per square foot were used on all wall surfaces to add architectural interest and sheen. To help the pantry door visually recede, he had it painted the same shade of black as the tiles. Since the adjacent living room is wrapped in a black-brown grass cloth with a metallic backing, he carried the look over to the bar area to tie the two spaces together. All together, Chris' kitchen decor came to $1400.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson borrowed 15 square feet from the adjacent guest bedroom to carve out space for this chic bathroom vanity. To give the room a first class feel, Sarah added a large silver-framed round mirror, a mosaic tile backsplash and a floating, custom-built wood cabinet with sleek modern hardware and plenty of extra storage. At the far end of this spa bathroom sits a cozy soaking tub with a built-in ledge perfect for holding candles or a glass of wine. A small, linear gallery wall adds color to the monochromatic space and boosts the room's spa-like ambiance.
