The front door, crafted from hemlock planks reclaimed from the interior of a 150-year-old home, complements the natural pine flooring and yellow birch panel ceiling in the HGTV Dream Home 2011. A white pendant light illuminates the space while black wood furniture and large accessories anchor the room. A gray floral patterned throw rug greets visitors to the home.
A sitting area and plush decorative benches at the foot of the bed take this bedroom from comfy home to a sumptuous experience, plus the butter and gray color palette gives the room a restful vibe. Cindi MacPherson of the Interior Partners says that master bedrooms and bathrooms that they design have coordinating colors and fabrics, another detail that adds to an extravagant feel.
When Mikel moved into his home, the bedroom was the first room that he designed. Motivated by a desire to bring the comfort and luxury of the Hamptons to his New York abode, this room set the tone for the rest of the interior. The canopy bed is an elegant centerpiece in the room. The range of silver-gray neutral tones evokes luxury while creating comfort.
Brass accents pop against the cool grays of this contemporary living room. A sleek wood panel turns the TV wall into a focal point, and also ties in with a picture rail that runs the length of a long wall, a nod to interiors past. A modern brass sofa table teams with a pair of side tables to create symmetry that helps harmonize the space.
“When we were furnishing the home, we jazzed it up a little bit,” explains HGTV Dream Home 2015 interior designer Linda Woodrum. “We have a traditional living room with an edge, and we kept it very monochromatic with grays, blacks and whites. We pulled in some of that blue because we know we are in a resort area, and we wanted to celebrate that kind of sense.”
Simple and understated, this bathroom tile floor, envisioned by Pure Design Interiors, shows how a pattern variation can heighten a room's overall aesthetic. Although dissimilar from the gray block-style pattern laid on the wall and in the shower stall, this herringbone pattern on the floor adds depth and a slightly 3-D effect to a home component that is often overlooked when designing a bathroom.
The minimalist design of this living room is highlighted by its use of open floor space, with a wall of bookshelves elevated by steel pipes. Reclaimed wood flooring connects with the wood ceiling and gives a nod to the home's sustainable design. The homeowner, a professor of environmental studies, requested a home that runs on solar power, recycles gray water and captures rain water in cisterns. All interior doors are built from recycled flooring.
As guests enter the home, they move straight from the classic foyer into the rustic industrial first floor. The walls in this space have been removed to create an open concept floor plan, and the gray trim and molding has been continued into these spaces to create continuity. Throughout these spaces, rustic pieces are mixed with industrial pieces to create an elegant, masculine design throughout the interior of this home.
This dining room is ready for festive fetes. Kay Douglass Interiors used bright and bold Hermes pieces, including a mobile and its signature orange for the custom velvet banquettes in the contemporary space. The chic dining chairs are in gray velvet and other seating swivels. The stool has a faceted cube shape. The paintings were found at a French market. The room was in the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays.
This modern space serves multiple functions, with a seating area, sleeping nook and built-in bench with storage. Because the house sits in a special zoning area, the designers were unable to increase the square footage of the existing house, instead building a separate structure that connects to the old house by a deck. The home runs on solar power, recycles gray water and captures rain water in cisterns. All interior doors are built from recycled flooring.
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.
As seen on HGTV's House Hunters Renovation, with the help of interior designer Jorge Da Rosa, the home owner's created an open, functional kitchen-to-living-room space perfect for entertaining. Warm-toned brown walls and medium-dark hardwood floors contrast with the crisp white ceiling and grey and white kitchen cabinets. Occasional splashes of color, like the green tiled backsplash and the yellow inside the cabinets add contrast and visual interest.
Gray cabinets framed with white molding add visual interest to this small kitchen area. A tray ceiling with recessed lighting adds height to the space and brightens the room with white beadboard. A wood island juts off the the sleek counter space, providing a casual dining space and extra storage for wine bottles. Glass-front cabinet doors allow the yellow cabinet interior to shine through for a pop of yellow, which complements the yellow undertones of the tile backsplash.
The subtle gray tones in this wood dining table bring down the intensity of the red and black decor in this dining room that doubles as a work space at the 2014 HGTV Smart Home. Having a dual-purpose room is significant," explains interior designer Linda Woodrum. "Homeowners can easily host casual dinner parties in the evening and set up a hard-working office space during the day."
By keeping the accessories of this bathroom simple and straightforward, Pure Interiors Design could amplify the room's elegance with dramatic toile wallpaper and a fanciful gold-framed mirror. The brushed metal widespread faucet in a brushed silver tone complements the light gray marble countertop and white subway tile on the wall for a unified look. And the simple green-hued roses in the glass vase are simply divine!
To update a wreath for the winter, use white paint and fake snowflakes, like New York City interior designer Eduardo Rodriguez of The Designer Pad did for this wintery tablescape. He upcycled pinecones, which are dipped in white paint for a shimmery effect, and arranged them in terracotta pots that he painted white and gray. The rest of the pots hold colorful candies and cookies for a casual Scandinavian-inspired winter get-together.
By using neutral colors for walls and fixtures, bathrooms can change colors with their towel and accessory choices. The bright orange here, however, is stupendous against the gray-green and white wall tile and mosaic tile flooring by Ann Sacks. The bathroom by Kathy Geissler Best of KGB Interior Design is designed as a user-friendly bath with access to both the home's pool and main house. It is divided into distinct zones including a separate shower and changing area.
To take this modern Austin, Texas home from drab to fab, designers used different colored paints to create depth and drama on the front of this home. The simple elevation of the structure required a unique color to highlight the depth of the home, so designers chose an orange color, highlighted by a neutral gray for the main part of the home and a brown for accents. These colors will carry into the home and create a fun, eclectic space on the interior as well as bring curb appeal to the home's modern facade.
