Where there's a little room, often there's a way to boost storage space. For this dressing room redo, designer Courtney Blaymore created a space for double hanging as well as a shoe wall to showcase her client's many pairs of shoes. The result: no more desperate searching for that one perfect outfit.
Designer Courtney Blaymore created a perfect dressing area and closet space with this glamorous room makeover. She provided double hanging units for easy access and retrieval and cabinets with drawers for foldable items. A glass-front cabinet is perfect for handbag storage, and a countertop, bench, lucite chair and crystal chandelier enhance the space's luxurious atmosphere.
This spacious walk-in closet provides ample room to keep clothes organized and readily available. A large skylight keeps the room bright highlighting the neutral marble floor, double layer hanging space and floor to ceiling shelf unit.
Four mercury glass pendants hang above the spacious double vanity in the HGTV Dream Home 2015 master bathroom. “I think it’s a really fun, elegant look,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “It’s tailored and not too girly for a man, and it has a nice elegant feel in a restrained way. We’re trying to make everybody comfortable in this bathroom.”
Just off the formal dining room, the living room boasts a full room of elegant, traditional furniture. A traditional sofa and chairs provide plenty of seating, while a leather ottoman, which doubles as a coffee table, adds sophisticated functionality to the space. A marble fireplace gives off plenty of warmth to this room, while the ornamental mantel and painting hanging above it add artistry to the space, creating a warm, yet formal living room.
This beautiful walnut and maple dining table doubles as a regulation-sized ping-pong table making it perfect for entertaining before, during and after a meal. Contemporary end chairs add a change to the matching chairs lining the sides of the table. A modern starburst light fixture hangs from the coffered ceiling to add an artistic touch to the room.
A 9' window allows light to stream into this mostly white bathroom, flooding it with natural light. Roman shades give the option of blocking the light and adding privacy, when needed, and also add a textural element. A robust and roomy double vanity blends seamlessly into the white walls and metallic pendant lighting hangs above it. A simple mirror and minimalist vases add the finishing touches to this transitional bathroom.
Not one inch is wasted in this tiny home designed by Incredible Tiny Homes. The coat closet was thoughtfully designed for hanging front to back therefore requiring very little of the entry’s space; paired with the storage trunk below, the two components allow the entry to function like a mudroom. The pale blue barn door is a great rustic detail that provides privacy for the bathroom without obstructing any space. Dual in its purpose, the bathroom doubles as the laundry room. The combination of the hardwood floors and natural materials create an immediate sense of warmth upon entering the tiny home.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
