To give more space to the living room, Karen and Mina, of HGTV's Good Bones, removed the walls that used to enclose the space. Now that the barriers are gone, this home has an open concept first floor with a line of sight from the living room into the dining room and kitchen. Each of these spaces, then received an elegant, contemporary design, creating a contemporary, updated space.
Designers Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak of HGTV's Good Bones wanted to create a beachy feel in this formal dining room, so they added a new coat of pale pink paint to the walls. Then, on an accent wall, the duo used coral paint to create a striped accent wall, upon which a beach painting is hung. To offset this comfortable vibe, traditional furniture creates an elegant space.
If you don't mind a little elbow grease, create your own wine buffet for the dining room from a bedroom dresser (or similar furniture piece). Look for furniture with good bones, then knock out drawers, add wine cubbies and a fresh coat of paint. Kim and Lori of That's So Creative are the masterminds behind this repurposed wine buffet.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak removed a wall to enlarge this kitchen and bring it forward in the floor plan. The team added new, bright cabinets for plenty of storage and stainless steel appliances and dining table to make this space clean and modern. To give the kitchen a little color, teal dining chairs and live flowers were put in place, creating a warm, inviting contemporary kitchen.
In this renovated guest bedroom, Karen and Mina repainted the walls and replaced the floors to give the space a fresh, neutral color palette. To create warmth in the space, Karen and Mina, of HGTV's Good Bones, used shades of brown, to make the room warm and inviting. They also added reclaimed wood accents and and an industrial chandelier to create interest and highlight the elegant, industrial design they were going for.
This home used to be a duplex before Good Bones' Mina and Karen reconfigures the entire first floor, removing walls to create an open floor plan and reworking the home's front entrance. When they put the home on the market, they not only staged the home with stylish, modern furniture, they had local artists display their work for the open house. The setup for the open house is featured in this photo.
Designers Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak of HGTV's Good Bones, wanted to create a bright, contemporary space in this office, so they added plenty of colorful pieces, such as a red chair, a blue patterned rug, an orange office chair and bright numeric artwork. The contemporary desk provides plenty of workspace, while the large window creates a great view for the homeowner and clients alike, while also letting in plenty of natural light to brighten the space.
This kitchen, which had been drastically damaged in a fire, is now an elegant, functional space in this contemporary home. To give more room to this space, Karen and Mina removed a wall, which brought this kitchen to the forefront of the design of the home. Then, they added plenty of storage and counter space with upper and lower cabinets. To help make the space pop, a stainless steel dining table with teal accent chairs were brought in, tying the space together, creating an elegant, contemporary kitchen. As seen on HGTV's Good Bones.
These homeowners were in need of a space for their two little girls to get creative, so designers Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak of HGTV's Good Bones transformed an unused attic space into the perfect playroom. An accent wall in the back of the space provides a focal point, while keeping the room fun and bright, while shelves give the girls a place to store their toys and display their artwork. A white rug adds comfort to the space, creating a great spot for the girls to play and draw together.
As seen on Good Bones, this small bathroom was in need of some sprucing. Once a small, dark room, Karen and Mina have transformed it into a bright, colorful space. A new coat of white paint on the walls reflects the light from the window as well as the light above the vanity, making the space feel bright, while pops of turquoise in the vanity and the artwork give the room some color. To finish off the design, a modern, mirrored plant stand gives the space a splash of personality.
As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, designers Mina Starsiak and Karen E. Laine wanted to make the best use of the natural light that streams into this living room from the bay window. A neutral color palette reflects that light, complementing the beauty of nature instead of competing with it. To give the space a bit of personality, a brightly colored ottoman that could double as a coffee table was selected for this space. They also hung a vintage ladder below the window to add interest in the space, as well to serve as a book shelf.
To create more light in the space, the Good Bones team, Karen E. Laine and Mina Starsiak, added two new windows in the reclaimed wood accent wall. This not only gives the space a focal point, but also allows more natural light into the space, making it feel bright and open. To add to the elegant, industrial design the team was going for, they added black and white artwork, a metal headboard, brown bed linens and dark end tables and lamp shades. To tie the space together and give it a pop of color, a green shag carpet adds comfort to this elegant, industrial master bedroom.
