Three smaller scale cube ottomans covered in a grid design fabric sit under large eccentric wall art on one wall of the dining room. The mobile ottomans offer “emergency seating” for extra large gatherings at home.
As seen on HGTV's hit show Love It or List It Too, the floors in this living room have been sanded and stained, and the fireplace has a new insert and ties. The shelving beside the fireplace is floating and the dog doors have been built into ledges that double as a location to place a beverage.
When they're expecting guests, the homeowners can pull out two patterned ottomans to create extra seating in the living room. With their black-and-white striped cushions, these bring out the bold black hue of the fireplace surround.
A floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace separates the living room from the entryway, making the two spaces feel extra cozy. Meanwhile, a neutral sectional and two chevron-patterned armchairs ensure that there are enough seats for guests.
Geometric tile in varying color stretches from wall to floor to play a fun game with dimension and shape in this trend-forward Brooklyn powder room. A sleek, white floating vanity and simple mirror keep the attention focused on the dramatic tile.
A mini butler's pantry adjacent to this dining room provides just enough space for meal staging and overflow flotsam. It also takes advantage of an odd cranny that might have gone to waste with built-in cabinetry and counter space.
When the owners need a little relief from the sun, they can slip beneath the covered porch where it's a little cooler. Here, an outdoor sectional gives the room to stretch out, while a wood trunk and wicker baskets store extra pillows and blankets.
Make a space that will last. “You don’t want things to be temporary. You want things that they can grow with,” said Cate Dunning of GordonDunning, who decorated this bedroom as part of a Dwell with Dignity install. This bedroom was for three boys who loved Super Mario Brothers and the Atlanta Falcons, so GordonDunning incorporated red accented with blue and hung framed Mario art prints from Etsy on the wall. The beds were already in the room, and DIY blogger Dena Stormer painted them with Sherwin Williams Positive Red.
