Sherwin Williams Iron Ore was used on the walls for both of these boys’ rooms. The Jack-and-Jill bathroom is covered in a cool black and white comic strip-inspired wallpaper. The animated paper adds a sense of humor and a youthful energy that perfectly describes the Blehm boys. Each of the rooms also has refurbished vintage pieces that reflects the boys’ individual interests; check out the retro digital clock and Rubik’s cube. My favorite element is the black penny tiled bathroom floor that bridges that gap between the two bedrooms.
You will need two panels from one sheet and one panel from the second sheet. Cut the panels 92” long and at least 37-1/2” wide. They can be wider, if possible, for more gathers in the finished project. On the two long sides of each panel, fold over the edge 1/2” and then fold it again. Press with an iron, if necessary to hold it in place, and pin about 6” apart. Sew a seam along the fold very close to the edge.
This modern Tuscan-style kitchen pays homage to the traditional details associated with the design through its use of color, architecture and accessories. Wood rafters help enclose the kitchen, while exposing the cathedral ceilings and intricate, artistic murals along the walls and ceilings. Simple wrought iron fixtures showcase Old World appeal with a contemporary edge. With massive wooden beams, terra-cotta tiles from Italy and hand-painted frescoes of Italian vineyards — this kitchen cooks up Italian flavor from floor to ceiling. But it's the bread warmer and wine cellar that stores up to 1,800 bottles that make this an Italian paradise. Appliances include two Miele dishwashers, a vegetable steamer, a built-in espresso machine and a five-burner Thermador stove.
Habachy Designs wanted to create depth through texture. The chandelier is made from natural Nguni cow horn in Africa, the table is made of solid wood and clad in antique brass and textured. The dining chairs have a clean, modern silhouette but are slipcovered to give a more casual look. The atom bowl holding succulents is made of iron and hand-crafted which gives it more character. Accessories throughout the space are artifacts and imported pieces from Africa and Asia. The vintage lion door knocker was an accessory that was found, custom mounted and had a stand built specifically to showcase the piece on the mantel.
This customized closet was designed by Mosaik Design & Remodeling of Portland, Ore., to meet the needs of a couple that travels frequently. The his-and-hers islands with tops made of Calacatta marble are just the right height for packing and include benches for comfort and ease when putting on shoes. The shoe shelves were custom designed specifically for his (yes, his) large shoe collection, and the velvet-lined drawers in her island hold an enviable collection of sunglasses. A built-in ironing board and toiletry organizers are hidden behind the soft white traditional cabinetry.
Problem: Yellowing veins, especially on young, new leaves, or yellow leaves in general. Solution: Yellowing veins may mean your plant needs more iron or magnesium. Give it a trace element fertilizer. If you’re not sure which one to use, take a few sample leaves to your local garden center or nursery and ask for help. Leaves that are turning yellow all over can mean the plant needs fertilizer. Use one formulated for whatever you're growing, such as an orchid or a foliage plant like this Diffenbachia. Follow label directions.
This entry joyfully foreshadows what's in store for our journey through the Blehm family home. We're immediately introduced to the family's four central themes: a love of art, bold colors, custom solutions and the use of classic black and white. When the foundation is understated, as is this entry's wallpaper, it creates an opportunity to layer on the fun. Angela worked with a local carpenter to design the statement making red lacquered cabinet. The door style was inspired by Angela's favorite ceramic planter and is in perfect harmony with the iron pickets on the staircase to the left. It is clear the paintings and accessories were all intentionally chosen and placed. The relationships between shapes, finishes and even the primary colors create a beautifully balanced entry vignette
Since this property overlooks the Pacific Ocean, evening breezes can become quite cool and possibly making evening use not as desirable as one would hope for. Therefore, it was important to provide a cozy outdoor gathering space that is out of the wind, and this space between the home and its Casita provides an excellent location for spending time in front of a warm fireplace, while it also provides for an excellent highlight feature when walking to the front door.
The clients thought the fireplace alone would be sufficient as a design feature, but after showing them that by adding the short wall, with several view-ports accented with wrought iron (that matches their Juliet balcony) it not only provided a true connect between the home and Casita, it also created a much more grand feature and a sense of enclosure without losing the planting depth behind the fireplace, which was needed for privacy.
When the homeowners went to renovate their 1980s home, they knew they wanted a sophisticated style that was a little more casual and up-to-date, so designers transformed the outdated library into a beautiful, contemporary-chic great room for the family. Designers worked with a local wood company to refinish the entire space, stripping the original stain and bleaching the wood to achieve a stylish "greige" stain on the walls and ceiling beams. To maintain the room's grand feel, designer chose to keep and update the gallery, which also adds height to the room. Finally, the marble clad and antique mirror fireplace surround helps to break up the wood paneled walls and the home's original handrail, comprised of brass and iron, was modified to meet modern safety codes and standards.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too the room was previously open on the garden facing wall, but had a shoebox for a kitchen and an underused bathroom. Jillian's solution was to blow out the bathroom entirely and insert a 30ft steel beam to support the already vaulted ceiling. With an extra 10 inches of space found in the renovation Jillian's team added a coffered ceiling to delineate the space adding intimacy and definition. The grid prints are of traditional Italian hunting scenes often found in family homes of Italian expats and are a nod to the grid design of the ceiling. A custom sectional was designed so that the homeowners could entertain many guests and take in a football game or two. The wrought iron wall hanging is actually from Egypt, but Jillian felt it gave a country feeling to the home. The components console is custom made. New french doors have been added to the patin entrance and a new gas insert sits on the far wall made of Venetian plaster and box posts, designed to draw the eye upwards into the grand vaulted space.
