A new front porch and second story addition give the owners of this upstate New York farmhouse more room indoors and more ways to enjoy the outdoors. The design carefully echoed the home's lovely original architecture like the dormers.
A tasseled window valance adds elegance to this prim and proper country kitchen. Cream-colored cabinets provide ample storage while the tile backsplash with diamond-shaped tiles and the Oriental rug add color and texture.
Wood fixtures and red walls create a warm and rich atmosphere perfect for formal dining. An oval wood dining table is surrounded with wood dining chairs with seat cushions upholstered with a red and gold diamond pattern. A large bay window brings in natural light to even out the heavy, rich design.
Tudor Revival details are prominent in this Beverly Hills home, including the combination of brick and half-timber framing, arched passageways and leaded, casement-style windows. The diamond ironwork on the upstairs balcony mimics the diamond window panes often found on Tudor-style homes.
Situated at the window, this small dining set up is beautifully lit. The rug adds texture and hints of color to counter the bright white walls. The small white table is sat below a stylish contemporary pendant light and finished with two power blue dining chairs.
This Beverly Hills home features Tudor Revival-style diamond-shaped window panes and a steeply pitched roof, though the selection of gray shingles and white board and batten siding offer an updated look.
A built-in daybed is perfect for cozying up with a good book. Roman window shades match the graphic, diamond-patterned seat cushion. Orange, red and gray pillows bring color to the neutral area. A basket of tennis balls, a basket golf balls and painting of a fox add a touch of whimsy to the space.
To create an architectural element worthy of a luxury hotel, Atlanta designer Rachel Greathouse started with a $30 mirror at a flea market. She painted the four-paned frame in a gloss that matched the wall color, and then hung the mirror at a 45 degree angle for an interesting visual effect. From its place above the bed, the mirror can appear like a diamond-shaped window because it reflects the windows on the opposite wall.
A long brown leather sofa matches the length of the window allowing natural light into this midcentury modern living room. Turquoise accent pillows bring color to the space. Two diamond pattern pillows compliment the diamond pattern of the floor rug. A mirror coffee table reflects the natural light and contributes to the brightness of the room.
Knotty wood is used for kitchen cabinets, creating a country-inspired kitchen design. Dark gray countertops make a striking contrast, while neutral tile laid in a diamond pattern is used for the backsplash.
