For this Asian inspired home, designers wanted to create a space that was open, inviting and connected. To create that feeling between the upper and lower floors, a glass paneled balcony wall was installed to allow light and eyesight to pass between floors. To keep the space bright and open, a skylight was put in place in the ceiling, adding a warm ambience to the home's two spaces.
After removing half of the wall to the kitchen and updating the fireplace the living room has a welcoming, open feel. Angela can now cook and entertain without disappearing behind kitchen walls as seen on Fixer Upper.
The living, dining and family rooms open into each other and are trimmed in bright white for a fresh and dramatic appearance. A lime-green accent wall pops in the living room, and the color is repeated in the family room. A large built-in bookshelf surrounding the mounted TV provides ample storage and display space.
The homeowners wanted an open space that would function smoothly for their family, so designers knocked out a section of the wall to create a physical connection between the kitchen and dining room to make serving food easier.
To create a more open space, designers knocked out the wall leading down the stairs, creating a full view of the basement from the staircase. This allows the basement to feel more open and gives a clear line of sight from one end of the room to the other.
Entertaining is made easy with open living and dining spaces that seamlessly connect with the back patio. The spacious outdoor space includes lounge seating, a built-in fire feature and infinity edge lap pool. Did we mention the view?
This Spanish-Mediterranean home features a blue resort-style hot tub and linked pool, a covered back patio, arched doorways and a pergola. The style of the home lends itself to additional creativity and contrasting colors.
To create an open feel between the dining room, living room and kitchen, French doors that separated the living room and dining room were removed and a pass through connecting the kitchen and dining room was added, making the spaces flow together. To encourage the flow, designers replaced outdated wallpaper with a warm beige color throughout the house.
Enclosed hanging and plenty of drawer space create an organized and uncluttered closet. The beautiful woodwork continues through the hallway arc to the large double vanity. Marble tile with a neutral, grainy finish adds texture to the smooth, traditional design.
