This Spanish Modern house is home to a young family of four. The design is a graceful blend of Art Deco and midcentury styles, with fun pops of color that add life to the rooms. Here, in the living room, white space is just as important as the art pieces, helping to create a sense of peace as well as spotlighting special moments, like the niche above the fireplace.
This Brooklyn brownstone features a built-in desk situated between the kitchen and living room. A custom bulletin board is mounted above the desk, which is functional and adds a sense of depth to the small home office.
Curved niches define the fireplace and media area of this contemporary living room to cut against the symmetrical lines of the window treatments and furnishings. Cream-colored cornice moldings and built-in cabinetry add architectural detail and contrast with the deep gold walls.
White marble tile, gold fixtures and high-contrast black trim create a distinctive, snappy shower in this custom-built, family-friendly bathroom. A niche with a turquoise tile backsplash ties in with a fireplace nook across the room.
This unique brown and white tiled fireplace adds depth and visual interest to the entertainment unit surrounding it. Multiple candle niches set into the side of the unit allow flickering candlelight to be seen from multiple vantage points in the room.
In this family room, a niche beside the fireplace was turned into a media unit with the addition of a cabinet and television. A long wood plank is used as both a mantel and a shelf and helps to visually unify the two areas.
A niche carved into a wall of this entertaining space features built-in wine storage, a wine cooler and staggered, modern shelving that puts barware on display. Accent lighting under each shelf puts further emphasis on the bar, turning it into a focal point. A fireplace is the focal point and adds a cozy feel.
A boring fireplace and recessed niche is transformed into a polished focal wall featuring a gleaming wood panel displaying a large wall-mount television. Wires are cleanly tucked behind for a sleek look. The fireplace received a tile surround.
The rustic accent wall in this living room takes on a mosaic appearance given the varied wood blocks piecing it together. Built-in niches make for excellent storage nooks, and a sophisticated fireplace anchors the look.
This large great room is the perfect place to entertain or just hang with the family. We added so fun details to the space by wrapping the entryways with a reclaimed barn wood. The art niches were highlighted with brass sconces and a large barn wood beam ran the length of the room.
Crisp white walls replace busy wood paneling for a refreshing, more modern look. Various types of seating, including a corner window seat, create an eclectic, cozy, comfy area for entertaining or relaxing with family. A ceiling-height wall niche houses stacked firewood, serving as both a practical and aesthetic element.
