This sunny yellow living space features comfortable furniture that allows guests to enjoy watching the streamlined built-in TV. A ceiling fan is important for enjoying the setting, and it hangs from a coffered ceiling that adds rich architectural detail. Polished floors speak to the home's overall elegance while also adding function in the indoor-outdoor spaces.
This incredible modern bathroom is truly spa heaven. Every luxury was thought of including His and Hers soaking tubs in front of floor-to-ceiling window walls, polished marble flooring and an enormous walk-in shower with built-in speakers.
Traditional wood walls, molding, a fireplace and floors get an update with chic chandeliers and a contemporary dining table. Eight gray velvet chairs make room for friends and speak to those in the kitchen.
Rich woods — in the front door, floors and entryway console — create immediate warmth upon entering this gorgeous home. White paneled walls speak to the home's coastal undertones and ensure a bright, airy first impression.
Above the fireplace, a tv and speaker turn this portion of the open concept floor into a family room. A sectional provides plenty of seating. The black-and-white floral rug makes a bold statement underfoot.
Though stainless appliances update this kitchen for the owners, a clay backsplash and terra cotta floors ensure that the space still speaks to the home's adobe architecture. Cabinets on either side of the stove provide plenty of storage, too.
Every detail of this dining room speaks of glamour, from the crystal chandelier to the faceted mirror, Macassar dining table and Asian-style chairs. The deep gray walls offset the clean white flooring, adding contrast to this elegant space.
A grand stone fireplace centers this impressive two-story bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows. The heavy, rustic materials used in the space are a nod to the home's woodsy locale, and the clean-lined furnishings speak to the home's overarching contemporary design.
A contemporary sliding barn door leads to a contemporary laundry room with a colorful tile floor and accent wall. Lit artwork provides an extra touch of whimsy in an already colorful and whimsical space. The overall contemporary home in Connecticut features loads of fun touches that speak to the family's playful personality.
The open entryway of this Cape Cod-style waterfront home features whitewashed, paneled walls, a curving banister and a rattan console table that speaks to the home's casual, coastal mood. Pale hardwood floors and a neutral carpet runner on the stairway combine with the white walls and trim to create a clean, crisp, neutral backdrop that's both restful and stylish.
For many, a mega-mansion represents the ideal dream home, but for Mike and Shawn McConkey, a shipping container was their ideal. The McConkey Residence, designed by OBR Architecture, is one of San Diego’s first shipping container homes. Three containers form 800 square feet of living space, and floor-to-ceiling windows make the open-air design feel even larger. A retractable garage door next to the kitchen is another thoughtful element (and perfect for those times when the stove gets a bit too smoky). Speaking of smoke, the windows and roof incorporate flame-retardant materials in the event of wildfires.
In HGTV Design Star season 4, Dan and Nathan painted an unexpected and bold graphical design across the walls and floor of this dining room. “I don't know if it's a pixelated map of the islands, stylized crime-scene outlines or a macro image of popcorn but I loveeeeeet!” says designer Candice Olson. “This room is a testament to the power of paint and how it can easily and inexpensively transform a space. We’re not talking simply color on the walls here but rather a big, bold powerful image (of something) that engulfs this space; walls, floor and all – wow! The lumber on the far wall is a brilliant design stroke adding warmth to the cool grays. The uniform, vertical application brings visual order, contrasting the great graphic chaos happening around the table. A Parsons-style table like this looks great but really doesn’t function well for seating lots of people. I would have liked to see a hollow pedestal table with the hole in the center used for low greens/grasses, or as a built-in ice bucket for wine and cold drinks. Right now the tall leaves in the center mean fighting your way through the jungle to see who you’re dining with. A round paper-lantern pendant or two over the table would provide beautiful light for dining and speak to the shapes of the ingenious wall-mounted light fixtures beyond. Small criticism for a room that is truly inspiring.”
