This craftsman style master bathroom features an olive green and neutral color palette that works really well together. A hanging lantern over the bed is an unexpected but stylish addition while walls painted with Valspar Withered Moss create a restful backdrop. A simple painted nightstand and long table showcase the rustic metal lamps and artwork through out the room. A brown throw rug coordinates well with the wood floor, curtains, and existing upholstered bedroom furniture.
Hezekiyah and Nyahsa wanted a mature space to entertain friends, so Drew and Jonathan from HGTV's hit show Buying and Selling designed a contemporary space for the couple. By lightening up the wall shade, they were able to brighten the space, making it seem larger. Then, they brought in new, modern furniture that provides plenty of seating for a small gathering. The modern end table and lamp help to brighten up the space as the metallic water bar at the end of the space reflects light back into the rest of the room. Pillows and artwork adorn the space to add splashes of color.
Designers wanted to capitalize on the beautiful mountain views outside the windows, so they kept the interior design neat, crisp and simple, yet still elegant. The living room in this space is no exception to that vision. Lots of windows allow plenty of natural light into the space, allowing patrons of the room to see outdoors to the beautiful mountain views. The light reflects off the gray walls, bringing the natural green tint of the trees indoors. Blue and gray furniture occupies this space and highlights the natural hues of the mountainside, making the living room feel as if it were a part of the mountains that surround it.
Giving a brand-new kitchen timeless character and rich personality is a challenge for the best architects and designers. One way to solve this problem is by repurposing a furniture piece for the workspace — but it’s not always easy to find the right fit, as architect Jeff Troyer discovered. He says: “We searched for months for the kitchen island, seeking something with warmth and character that would also fit the space. My clients and I finally found this antique school science lab table online and had it shipped from Ohio. We had to purchase this sight unseen, but it ended up fitting perfectly and the wood is beautiful.”
Originally, this historic home's backyard contained a swimming pool that was damaged beyond repair, so after filling in the pool, homeowners wanted a fresh, new look. Designers helped the homeowners come up with a color concept, and began work on their New Modern design by defining entertainment spaces. In one corner, a custom barbecue pit with a concrete island makes the space perfect for grilling. In another, an intimate conversation corner welcomes guests. A putting green is the focal point of the space, but the central living space is this elegant sitting area created from sustainable furniture that matches the couple's eco-friendly lifestyle.
This library space was once a sea of wall-to-wall green with gold accents and cluttered bookshelves. Now, the space is elegant and calming. The home's original molding and wainscoting has been restored and highlighted in this sleek, new design, and the bookcases have been cleaned up and stocked with myriad books. The luscious, overstuffed furniture gives the family a great place to relax and read, but this space has also been equipped with some tech savvy gadgets, such as a projector with a retractable screen, so that the family can watch their favorite soccer matches in style.
Designers hoped to soften the edges of this industrial style office building in New York City, so they added a chandelier in the individual work spaces to help give light to the space. The table upon which the computers rest have a metal base, but the wood top helps to add warmth to that piece. In the back of the space, a conference room lies, decorated with bright photos and furniture that add pops of color and warmth to an otherwise cold industrial design.
All orange everything can get a bit overwhelming after a while. Avoid a color overload by opting for a different - and totally surprising - shade. Grab some white pumpkins and style them alongside white mums for a monochromatic look that will certainly shake things up. Keep things on theme by placing the whole setup on a white piece of furniture to emphasize the tone on tone look.
When transforming a spare bedroom into a glamorous dressing room, designer Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ, turned the double-door reach-in closet into a custom-designed shoe display alcove with 1/2" thick glass shelves. Luxurious patterned carpeting, gold shimmering wallpaper and neutral furnishings balance out the bright pink shelving. Since the room was so large, several ready-made furniture pieces were added in addition to the custom shelving.
As seen on HGTV's hit show Buying and Selling, Drew and Jonathan transformed Daniel and Vanessa's master bedroom into a bright, inviting space perfect for relaxing. The neutral walls and window treatments help to brighten up the space and take advantage of the natural light that enters the room through the large window behind the bed. The rich colors and sleek furniture the Scotts have put into the room help to make the space warm and inviting.
The most important thing you can do to prepare your home for sale is to get rid of clutter. Make a house rule that for every new item that comes in, an old one has to leave. One of the major contributors to a cluttered look is having too much furniture. When professional stagers descend on a home being prepped for market, they often whisk away as much as half the owner's furnishings, and the house looks much bigger for it. You don't have to whittle that drastically, but take a hard look at what you have and ask yourself what you can live without.
The homeowners wanted a unique design for their Bolinas beach house, so designers aimed to create a clean, airy, modern space. They started with bright, white paint throughout the home and then brought in bold, black accents to contrast the neutral color palette. They continued the design with durable fabrics and furniture to withstand the salty, ocean air and the myriad guests and young children that often occupy the space. Finally, they added a few touches of Scandinavian design to finish off the home.
In this open concept space, the first section is home to a dining area whose rustic, wooden top table brings a relaxed vibe to the space. On the other side, a living area with wicker and metal furniture gives the space a beach feel, while the modern luxury of a television rests on a geometric shelf in the back of the space. Each of these spaces give the family a variety of ways to enjoy their space and the perfect, open area for entertaining.
Nothing says old world magnificence like the hand-painted cathedral ceiling and two-tier chandelier of this elegant gathering room. Looking up, the room emits a feeling of Italian renaissance and splendor, while the furnishings and accessories deliver a traditional and comfortable spin on old world style. The most spectacular piece in the room is the 16th-century fireplace imported from Cyprus. Designer Lori Venners added beige Knole sofas to pull in the gold hues from the ceiling detail while also complementing the chocolate-brown draperies and dark wood furniture.
Pastel details contrast with the wood elements in this master bedroom remodel. The printed, yellow wallpaper creates an accent wall in this cottage-style bedroom, acting as a cheerful backdrop for the pink and gray aspects of the room. Crisp, neutral bedding along with the clean lines of the neutral headboard anchor the bedroom's largest furniture piece and mirrors the neutral fireplace. A splash of bold color is added to the decor with the use of pink throw pillows, a nightstand and printed ottoman. A wooden table and mantel act as a base for decorative pieces and soft, pastels colors in the chair and nightstand lamp elaborate on the room's pastel ambiance. A distinct, natural lighting fixture adds a rustic element to the room.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, the greatest discontent for Holly and Chester's home was the number of 'dysfunctional' spaces and long list of outdated fixtures and appliances. Designer Jillian Harris created a more open space by ripping out the wall that divided the kitchen and living space as Holly wanted to be able to see their baby in the living room while she was in the kitchen. Harris put in a large island with white quartz countertops, and lots of new storage. Pot lights were inserted, hardwood floors were put down. The room has all new furniture. A new insert and limestone tile was added to the fireplace. All coverings for the windows are new.
A skirted table can soften a room, especially if you have other wood furniture, molding or beams. To save more money, hunt in the fabric remnant section, or use a white canvas or even a long tablecloth to cover the table and add a glass top. Parker Kennedy Living also added a round mirror to the top of the side table. Mirror companies often stock round mirrors, which is more affordable than having one cut to the size. "That’s a good way to get a lot of bang for the buck for a table under $50," said interior designer Lance Jackson. "It puts a little more custom look to it."
As seen on Cousins on Call, this open floor plan lower level houses a kitchen, dining area, and living room for the family. John and Anthony have taken a more modern space and have added funkier details to fit the family's eclectic style. The unique detail above the dining table adds character and bohemian charm, while the wall behind the television, with its natural wood and open shelving, gives a nod to the Asian style. Plush furniture and myriad patterns help to bring out the eclectic feeling of the design.
