This Big Sky, Mont., house is oriented toward the best view of the river while maintaining good solar orientation for taking advantage of solar heat gain in the winter and keeping out the hot summer sun. The large roof over the living room serves to shade large areas of glass in the summer, while geothermal heat pumps and high levels of insulation help keep it warm and energy efficient in the winter.
A major challenge in designing this garden was the site, with a massive concrete pad that hides a dry well. It inspired the circular grass area. The designer chose not to cover or paint the cement walls but instead embraced the texture and how the cement reflects the light. The garden is accessed by stairs from the living room, which is located on top floor of the apartment, and from the bedrooms that are below the street level.
Micah Stansell’s office is actually in the house next door. The aesthetic is a complete departure from that of the family home, however it’s the perfect blank canvas for him to create and edit film and exhibitions. The upper level white space is flooded with brightness via skylights and character-rich with a vaulted ceiling, wood beams and original exposed brick columns. The entire left side of the room is decked with storage cabinets concealed by white glass doors that blend into the walls. This space is a super thoughtful minimalist dream and ideal for any creative.
Add an extra layer of comfort to your outdoor living room with a generously sized indoor-outdoor area rug. Keep in mind that patterned rugs are often an excellent choice for outdoor spaces since the addition of shapes helps add personality. To prolong the longevity of indoor-outdoor rugs, be sure to bring them in whenever you're not entertaining.
With the television being the focal point of this living room space, designers wanted to frame it elegantly as well as add some functionality to the bare wall around it, so custom shelves were built to surround it. Above the TV, open shelves display photographs and knick knacks that add a personal touch to the home, while below, open storage gives the homeowners a place to keep their books and movies within arm's reach.
This formal living room is likely Angela's favorite place to get inspired, primarily because she's always wanted a pink room (Sherwin Williams, Lotus Flower). Her design books, magazines and some of her most prized vintage finds are housed in this space. I love that this angle of the room is perfectly balanced and there is a relationship between each of the pieces. The vintage print framed by the pair of lamps, compliments the chairs flanking the console, which is grounded by the ottoman. Angela’s use of black and white in this room and throughout the house adds a dose of classic design in spaces with unconventional wall colors and bold abstract artwork.

The dining room was designed by Kelley herself. A wood bench was installed, neatly dividing the living and dining area. Upholstered cushions were placed to create a dining nook centered around a Saarinen-style table. The cushions add a colorful display to the dining area. Kelley upholstered them and the bench cushions in fabric from a collaboration between SUNO and KNOLL. The upholstery-grade pieces were inspired by traditional fabrics in Kenya, India and beyond.
This little moment in the dining room reflects how Angela incorporates minimalist principals with colorful whimsy throughout the space. The artwork, painted by her two eldest children when they were just toddlers, is not only a great conversation piece but it also provides just the right amount of soft edges and free-flowing brushstrokes to create a contained chaos, that pairs perfectly with the clean modest lines of the credenza. The mod, architectural yellow chair (another one of Angela’s amazing vintage finds) may be small but it certainly makes a large impact in the space.
This elegant, eclectic studio makes the most of its space. In the far corner, a home office sits with a modern desk and rolling chair. Behind that, a sitting area gives the tenant a place to entertain, while the living room, sandwiched in the middle of the space has a large leather sofa with a chaise lounge to maximize seating potential. A breakfast cart and small table provide a place for the tenant to enjoy her meals.
This homeowner's love for color does not stop in the living room; this kitchen is chock full of color. The wood floor has been painted blue and green with an argyle pattern. A red kitchen island and blue double ovens accent the space. In the back of the bookcases, wallpaper has been applied to add more color to the space. The shelves are dotted with colorful pots, pans and dishes for easy access as well as decoration.
As seen on Home Town, the Watts Residence has been fully renovated by Ben and Erin Napier. The new kitchen no longer has the dark cabinets that closed off the room. Wood veneer cabinets were added to the bottom to tie in with the existing brick floor and lighter white cabinets where added on the wall to brighten up the room. The kitchen now opens to the dining and into the living areas creating a more open floor plan.
The sofa serves as a natural divider to separate a living area from a dining space in this open basement. Exposed ceiling beams and built-in shelves add a dark accent color to the calm, neutral room. Upholstered chairs sit around an octagonal glass dining table, providing a comfortable spot for dining.
The Craftsman style of the home remains evident in the trim, front door and cabinets in the kitchen and dining room, yet contemporary style is infused into the space through sleek light fixtures and furnishings. A slate wall divides the entryway from the living spaces without losing the open feel of the floor plan. A large kitchen island not only provides more counter space, but also a spot to eat and extra storage.

Kortney and David knocked out the home's existing walls to create one open, visually and physically connected space where three separate, closed off spaces had been. They even opened the staircase to allow natural light to flow through this space as well as the kitchen, dining room and living room. The removal of these walls creates a clear line of sight from the front door through to the kitchen and back again, keeping the home's first floor feeling light, bright and open.
By removing the doors that separated the living room from the rest of the home's spaces, Chip and Joanna, of HGTV's hit series Fixer Upper, were able to create a more open, continuous space for these happy homeowners. To connect the spaces, Joanna removed outdated wallpaper and replaced it with warm, beige paint throughout the home, creating continuity in this bright, open home.
