Set a seating area apart by framing it within a custom cornice piece and drapes, like this example from HGTV's Great Rooms. A painting hung on top of the drapes adds visual richness and depth to the eclectic space, while white slipper chairs help to define the living room from the adjacent dining room.
Designer Susan Brunstrum elevated the row of windows of this great room with white tufted cornices that were placed alongside floor-to ceiling draperies for a stylish but subtle design. The treatments seem to elongate the dimensions of the windows and create texture against the clear glass.
A blue-and-yellow damask shower curtain hangs from cornice board, adding architectural detail to this traditional bathroom. Marble subway tiles create the shower surround, while marble square tiles are used on the floor. A large open shelf provides plenty of storage.
Decorative cornice molding outlining the tops of these sophisticated kitchen cabinets work in harmony with the surrounding refined details, including the coffered ceiling, marble countertops and linear cabinet pulls. Built-in shelving provides easy access to favorite cookbooks without countertop clutter and using glass cabinet doors opens up the room, helping the space seem bigger and more alive.
By removing a wall, what was once a small room feels much larger, offering a comfortable flow between the living room and the dining room. In the process of removing the wall, Chip Gaines found the original fireplace and decided to keep it as a unique design element. Original shiplap paneling was revealed and kept as wainscoting around the house, and natural wood cornices were installed around the windows. A large, Art Deco style light fixture illuminates the room, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
The caramel tones in this kitchen -- from the cabinets to the floors -- add a comfortable air, creating a cozy space for cooking and conversation. The finishes create a fresh space that lends itself well to mixing furniture and window treatments, creating an overall traditional feel but with tailored lines and rustic features. The outcome: a space that has a transitional feel, perfect for all ages.
A plush red leather chair with matching ottoman sits diagonally across from a double bookshelf filled with books. A framed art print of Marilyn Monroe hangs on one wall, while the ceiling has been treated to look like an old world map with a grand chandelier in the middle.
This traditional kitchen has white cabinets with a dark brown island and a patterned tile back splash that adds style to this space. The large island provides extra counter space, storage and an additional prep area.
Custom treatments frame the bay window in this neutral, eclectic living room. A steel fireplace adds texture and masculinity to the space, while color is found in the addition of pillows and custom artwork.
