Colorful candle holders and old books top a distressed credenza from One Kings Lane in the transformed apartment designed by HGTV Star contestants Boris Eckey and Abby Vasek. "There's definitely a global feel coming from the accessorizing, but the room as a whole feels overly traditional," Genevieve said.
Designer Amy Elbaum selected a modern-styled wingback chair in navy blue to place in the corner of the living room in this apartment redesign. Not only is the chair comfortable, but it also displays great style against the urban skyline out the window. The furry white pillow provides a whimsical touch.
In the backyard of a garden apartment, designer Elizabeth S. Vaughan worked to add personality, using items that are easy to take along in a move. “Clients love when we add garden oddities like the bronze rabbit lantern on the steps,” she says. Note, also, the varied container plantings and color-coordinated chair cushions and umbrella.
In this New York apartment, designer Nick Olsen uses long alternating black and gray stripes on the wall to accentuate the length of this contemporary galley kitchen. An impressive display of black-and-white photography in plain frames and white mattes plays off of the achromatic theme as do the contrasting gray and black cabinet fronts.
The beautiful stone walls and open design create a gorgeous architectural design in this Puerto Vallarta home. A cozy loft bedroom overlooks a stylish home office space with a bright blue accent wall adding a pop of lively color to the serene space.
Located in The Century, a prestigious 24-hour full-service building, the apartment was designed by world-acclaimed Joan Behnke. Its expansive great room includes a bar, oak flooring and panoramic city views.
Throughout the Noho Loft's design, the homeowners needed a way to make their small spaces look larger and feel more functional, so designers had custom fabricated steel doors and sliding paneling made to help with this. Since many of the doors are not fixed, they allow the homeowners to customize their space to fit their needs at the moment, and because the doors slide rather than swing, they take up less room in the design so the home has more functional floor space.
The Brooklyn neighborhood Williamsburg is home to this luxury apartment building, designed by architect Piet Boon and built in 2016. Near the East River, the apartments have spectacular views of New York City's urban landscape
To make an exciting impression from the moment anyone walks into this apartment, the designer chose wallpaper with a bark-like pattern and a dark jewel-toned color for the ceiling. A shagreen console adds to the layers of texture.
The living room fuses function and form in a contemporary loft-like design by creating separate spaces within the large room. A stencil is used to create a dramatic feature wall, where a half-circle couch is the perfect spot for hanging out.
In this open concept apartment, the designer cleverly used color to help define different areas. Gorgeous sapphire blue paint covers the walls and ceiling in the entryway and kitchen. As you move into the living areas, the walls shift to shimmery wallpaper.
This closet is actually located in the open corner of a studio apartment, where fashion expert Lindsay Albanese shoots her YouTube videos. Designer Lucinda Pace of Laurel & Wolf found that Lindsay was using her clothes closet for storing boxes, paper towels, and other miscellaneous items, while her clothes hung on collapsible rolling racks. The designer created this “Style Studio” for Lindsay along one wall to act as clothing storage, a video set and an apartment design element all in one. The chaise, formerly a catchall for un-hung clothes, was reupholstered in ivory microsuede, and now serves as the perfect place for Lindsay to interview guests.
