John and Anthony, of America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designed an open, functional space to meet their needs. To define the boundaries of the new kitchen space, the Kitchen Cousins added a brick wall to separate the kitchen from the living room, a small, informal breakfast bar to separate the dining room and the stove and shelving to separate the space from the home office adjacent to the kitchen.
Up close, this exquisite mansion exemplifies Gothic-revival style with ornate gable designs, a beautiful stone facade, and multiple brick chimneys. The hilltop estate sits on 1.3 acres and the home features nine bedrooms, six bathrooms and seven fireplaces.
Black walls and a metallic skull give designer Noz Nozawa's living room some serious drama. A faux-zebra hide rug layers the space, adding texture and visual interest to the hardwood floors, while a leather chair invites visitors to sit a spell.
In sunny Florida, there’s often no need to keep the car inside the garage—which leaves this space open for creative conversion. Here, the team at B + G Design transformed a Miami garage into a luxurious home theater, complete with upholstered seating, dramatic lighting and colorful artwork to brighten the space when there’s nothing on screen.
To give the design in this newly remodeled bathroom a touch of dimension and pizzaz, designers created an accent wall of decorative tile. The tile was purchased from Wayfair and is called "Illica" ceramic.
The covered, concrete patio features a view of the minimalist courtyard as well as the home's exterior consisting of untreated cedar siding and corrugated steel. Natural materials give the design a modern industrial look.
The two-color exterior of this towering modern home give the design both depth and dimension. Easily maintained and minimal landscaping complements the bold lines of the home while keeping the space feeling clean and refined.
Exotic wood paneling and cabinets give major design pizzazz to this modern kitchen. The zigzag of the wood's grain brings a sense of movement to the space and the coffee color warms up the stainless steel accents.
A glamorous white and gold centerpiece is key to dressing up this formal dining room for Christmas. Blue velvet gourds give the design a touch of color and echo the hues of the painting over the fireplace.
Fountains flow from metal cages filled with natural, neutral rocks into small concrete pools. A center cement block allows for easy passage across each pool. The rocks give the design a pleasing natural texture and zen feel.
White cabinets, walls and range hood create a bright surrounding for the stainless steel stove in this kitchen. A natural wood range hood trim and exposed ceiling beams stand out against the stark backdrop and give the design a cozy finish.
Bring an element of surprise to your tabletop with unexpected flatware. Instead of disposable styles, choose unique finishes and materials that give your design one-of-a-kind appeal. Here, an antique set of polished brass flatware adds a touch of warmth to a generally cool palette.
