This super comfy, contemporary living room features white furniture against white walls for a fresh and clean look. Teal pillows add a bright pop of color that play nicely off white, slip covered sofas. Hard wood floors and a wood coffee table bring warmth and texture into the sunny space.
"Bamboo has been around for a long time, but what we are seeing lately is an explosion of colors and styles," says Dean Howell, president of Atlanta-based MODA Floors & Interiors. While technically a fast-growing grass, bamboo is as hard or harder than most hardwoods when dried. Newer products called strand-woven bamboo, a highly engineered product using the inner fibers, are twice as hard as traditional bamboo flooring. Dean says that in addition to the common thin-banded styles shoppers have become accustomed to, bamboo is offered in wide-plank styles that mimic the look of classic hardwoods. As with all wood flooring, it's best to keep bamboo out of moisture-prone rooms like kitchens and baths.
High-gloss white wood floors are a great alternative to tile or stained wood. When installed correctly, maintenance and clean-up is a snap, and it’s hard to beat the clean and fresh look that this finish provides.
An open floor plan with high ceilings and large windows creates a natural, contemporary look. The white quartzite countertops combine with wood flooring and cabinets to create a beautiful balance of dark and light, hard and soft. Statement pendant lights draw the eye, while fiery wall art adds warm color.
Sleek silver fixtures and neutral reclaimed wood cabinets coexist peacefully in this rustic industrial kitchen. Where the metal vent hood, exposed brick, and three pendant lights suggest hard functionality, the reclaimed wood cabinetry, flooring, and island soften the space and create an elegant balance.
Hard to find a kitchen more sleek and stylish than this one with its crisp, white palette warmed up by exposed beams and a wood floor. Two stainless steel refrigerators and a thick marble countertop add to the luxe factor.
"For Stacey, the carnation is a hard-working flower that has the possibility of being more than it appears on the surface. Her desk and chair seem both modern and traditional at once, showcasing the complexity of the flower she has chosen," said judge Vern Yip of HGTV's Design Star. This transitional room features traditional decor with a modern twist. The two-tone walls add color to the white furniture, wood flooring and dark wooden desk.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a cramped and dirty basement was transformed into an open, functional space for a growing family of four. Keeping her clients' two young boys in mind, Sarah chose durable design details such as hard-wearing wood paneling, slate tile floors and thick-fiber curtains that will withstand years of use.
It’s hard to imagine now, but this charming living space was once an unassuming commercial garage. To make the most of the compact, 1,260-square-foot space (including an upstairs loft area), Frazier Associates minimized the number of walls within. Exposed brick walls and concrete flooring on the first floor were retained and a new staircase, crafted of reclaimed wood and metal railing, was designed for access to the second floor. "Providing more natural light was the biggest design challenge," say the designers. "A new recessed patio was designed behind the historic garage doors to allow for more light on the first floor, as well as to create a front entrance and a small exterior seating area."
