This dreamy kitchen design features terra cotta tile flooring, warm wood cabinetry and a center island for prepping and eating. A wall of French doors provide access to the outdoor dining area with breathtaking views of downtown San Diego.
During this colonial home's renovation, a screened porch was added to the rear elevation. The porch, which is connected to the family room by sliding French doors, features a sitting area, fireplace and dining area for 10. Both side yards — one housing the kids' play area and the other boasting an open terrace — are visible from the porch.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, the completed renovation includes this great room, adjacent to both the kitchen and new main living room, incorporating a dining area and new French doors that open onto an outdoor living space.
A brown metal dining table and chairs accessorizes this classic porch area. Red brick flooring and a painted wood ceiling with ceiling fans roots this porch in a traditional design. Large white columns and French doors create a dramatic entry.
The kitchen design makes the most out of not a lot of square footage by keeping the layout open. A peninsula bisects the kitchen and a dining area while allowing light to flow throughout the room. French doors lead out to the backyard.
Concrete ceilings and columns are paired with French oak hardwood floors in this minimalistic living room, while floor-to-ceiling windows provide a panoramic view of the Chicago skyline. The open nature of the living space allows for easy transition between the dining, living and kitchen areas.
Dark wood cabinets and kitchen island provide beautiful contrast in this bright white kitchen. Topped with white marble, the kitchen island includes a prep sink, dining area set for four and four pendant lights above for ample lighting. French doors open up to the patio to invite indoor-outdoor living.
The living room is large enough to fit a full dining area that seats eight. On the wall, an image of young dancers from Batoto Yetu, taken by French photographer, Patrick Demarchelier is the perfect accent piece on the wall. The Drop dining chairs by Fritz Hansen continue the room’s dichotomy between modern and traditional aesthetics and provide wonderful contrast to the ornamentation in the doorway.
Fixer Upper hosts Joanna and Chip Gaines transformed this living room by opening up the space, creating a better flow into the dining room. By moving the air conditioner to the attic they were able to open up the hallway behind the wall and move the door from the dining area to the living room. The original hardwood floors were kept and refinished, and a window in the dining room was replaced with French doors.
This kitchen features a number of white cabinets, some with beveled doors and others with glass fronts made to look like French doors. Several black stools are arranged around a large kitchen island, providing room for casual dining, while stainless steel appliances add a sleek touch to the space.
