In this small kitchen with minimal counter space, a table doubles as a prep station with a hanging pot rack overhead. Richly grained kitchen cabinets are illuminated by track lighting in the design featured on HGTV's Meg's Great Rooms.
Chip and Joanna Gaines decked out this master bathroom with new gray paint and a shiplap accent wall on HGTV's Fixer Upper. A large mirror is framed with wood that matches the accent wall, and a modern light fixture illuminates his and a hers vanity with a marble countertop and rectangular vessel sinks. The original claw foot tub was kept and refinished, and new tile flooring installed.
This minimalist mid century modern kitchen features medium grain wood cabinets paired with polished concrete floors. A professional refrigerator is built into the cabinets, while a half wall allows you to peek into the adjacent room.
The large grain wood book case in this space is accented by the brass frame that holds this structure together. This textured piece gives the homeowners the perfect place to display their unique sculptures and vases, while focusing on the design of the room.
Looking out over this beautiful hillside, this home complements the beauty of the region instead of competing with it. Materials used in building this home appear to have a "grain", which flows with the topography of the surrounding countryside and feels as if it is one with nature.
