You must see to believe the beauty of this antique vanity table that serves as a nightstand in this classically designed master bedroom by Andrea Michaelson. From the ornately painted wood in shades of cream and soft green to its rose marble top, the piece makes a magnificent statement. The designer placed an antique French painting and ornate gold wall sculpture above the vanity to heighten its effect in the room.
Warm wood tones, muted gray-greens and charcoal exemplify the casual, comfortable vibe of this pub-inspired dining room. The custom bar includes four pro-quality taps, white subway tile backsplash and a custom shelf with under-lighting that illuminate bottles or decorative items. A chalkboard accent wall is the perfect spot for homeowners to add a personal touch, while stamped-tin ceiling tiles bring historic character to the space.
Creating separate zones within an open layout is simple, but making them feel at once distinct and connected can be more complicated, says designer Jodie Cooper. Here, she manages this delicate balance deftly, using material — a transition from the practical kitchen flooring to the warm wood in the eating space — and color: A soft blue-green accent wall helps differentiate (and add drama to) the dining area.
This kitchen channels both Spanish and Mexican styling with colorful walls, shelves and pottery. The large metallic mirror hanging over the range is a statement piece that brings more light and space to the room. Designer Emily Severinsen chose a deep orange wall color and carried it through to the pottery, which holds a variety of kitchen utensils. The green tea color on the range hood and cabinets is a refreshing contrast against the bold, rustic metal tile backsplash and cultural artwork. Natural elements like the sabino wood kitchen island and wooden ceiling beams add a country look, while the black modern stools rejuvenate the space. The oversized antique mirror makes the kitchen feel larger and more open.
This craftsman style master bathroom features an olive green and neutral color palette that works really well together. A hanging lantern over the bed is an unexpected but stylish addition while walls painted with Valspar Withered Moss create a restful backdrop. A simple painted nightstand and long table showcase the rustic metal lamps and artwork through out the room. A brown throw rug coordinates well with the wood floor, curtains, and existing upholstered bedroom furniture.
The main house of the building, sitting directly in the middle of the guest rooms, is a communal space where guests come to check in, eat and relax outside of their rooms. Just in through the front door, the space begins with this beautiful dining room. The forest-feel comes immediately through in this space with its color palette of warm browns and greens. The extendable table, which seats as many as 10 guests, is flanked by the hidden star of the show: an exquisite black armoire that accents the deep green of the wall, while the grain of the wood adds pattern and texture to the room.
In the open design of this home, a stylish modern sitting room is situated next to the wood-saturated kitchen. A modern white leather sofa shines with natural light from the large windows on the back wall. A tufted leather chair and neutral shag rug define the perimeter of the area while keeping it open and connected to the rest of the home. A turquoise serving tray and green throw pillows add small pops of color.
Natural light from the bay window and light neutral walls make a bright atmosphere for this living room. A green and white houndstooth chair is decorated with a red pillow for a mix of bold colors and graphic patterns. A navy tufted coffee table is a solid buffer between the patterned chair and the multicolor, striped rug. A small natural wood end table brings a gorgeous rough finish to the refined design.
The back of this built-in bookcase is lined with Novogratz Constellation removable wallpaper. The off-white peel-and-stick paper with gold foil design creates striking contrast against the deep green walls and dark wood shelves and can easily be removed or replaced. Accessories like a "hello" sign made from wire, astronaut artwork, a moon LED night light and a brontosaurus tillandsia planter add to the whimsy of the display.
Brown mosaic tile serves as a springboard for this bathroom's casual-chic design sensibility, while twin mirrors visually widen the space. The guest bathroom, from the 2012 HGTV Green Home, has beautifully finished wood cabinets and floors to warm up the room and red accents add a bright pop of color against white walls. The signature tile is a frosted glass micro-block in a tortoise shell-inspired shade. The upper-floor space also features interior windows opening to the adjacent tairwell.
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.
These homeowners were very interested in bringing their love for the natural beauty of the outdoors inside and mixing it with the modern design style they already love. This photo shows that they succeeded. The large window overlooking the sink brings in plenty of natural light, allowing nature into the space. The live edge wood shelving shows the raw beauty of nature, while the colors on the wall and the backsplash are earthy shades of green, yellow and gray. These natural elements blend perfectly with the clean lines of the countertop and the modern pendant light, bringing the couple's ideas of an eco modern design to life.
This rocky, hillside back yard was transformed by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew. Upgrades included tiered landscaping, a covered dining area and an intimate sitting area next to a washtub firepit.
After the backyard makeover at DIY Networkâ€™s Yard Crashers, homeowners Brooke and Zach Taylor of Auburn, CA now have a lush and vibrant backyard for their entire family to enjoy- a stark contrast from the rocky hillside that took up much of their yard before! The transformation by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew includes a metal and wood pergola, hillside creek water feature, privacy screen with wood and metal, a Big Green Egg smoker and custom cart, and a firepit with seating. The fire pit sits on a raised platform with a rock wall boder. Two washtubs filled with rock form the fire pit itself which sets on a bed of decomposed granite. The pit is surrounded by custom metal privacy screens. (after)(detail)
