Homeowner Chad Alford had always wanted to live in a New York City loft, so his partner Tomas Frenes designed their townhome in Atlanta's Cabbagetown neighborhood to look like urban buildings. Custom doors with smoked glass are made to look like the windows on urban buildings, and exposed ceiling beams and ductwork enhance the industrial look.
Space was trimmed from the master bedroom and living room during renovation of this midcentury modern home to make way for a true master bathroom. A black ceiling and floating vanity give the illusion of extra room in the bathroom, while the playful lighting fixture adds a touch of whimsy to the space.
The exterior roofline creates a gabled ceiling in the master bedroom of HGTV Green Home 2010, punctuated by bold colors and feminine touches. The four-poster bed, which carpenter David Brown crafted from old doors purchased at Habitat for Humanity, is dressed in a collection of mod pillows and organic cotton sateen sheets, block-printed by hand.
Soft, natural tones and simple lines give this kitchen a classic, clean look. At 11 feet, the ceilings are very high, so a coffered ceiling is used to give stability. Using a rich, darker tone on the island cabinetry helps draw you into the room.
Beautiful white wood walls and exposed ceiling beams give a great nautical feel to this coastal mudroom. Dark wood on the built in bench and ceiling fan panels give a deep contrast to the bright white. wicker baskets tuck under the bench for organized and concealed storage.
