A bedroom makeover solved the design problem that was created by the room’s unusual one-window layout. To create symmetry, the designer sourced a mirror and hung window treatments on either side, says Kirsten Yonson, co-owner of SwatchPop. She brightened up the lamps and added art above the bed for a fresh update.
After, this patio has a new table but containers with an interesting patina. Buy cheap containers on closeout at a local home and garden store and then take thinned latex paint and do a wash on the containers for an aged/weathered look, Atlanta interior designer Steve McKenzie.
Michigan landscape designers Zaremba & Company convert the freeform pool into a rectangular pool that sits perpendicular to the house, rather than parallel with it, creating a majestic symmetry to the yard. The extensive remodel spotlights an elevated spa at the head of the pool.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper: Chip and Joanna Gaines brightened up the exterior of this 1958 ranch house with fresh paint in a soft cream white balanced out with dark shutters and window boxes in natural wood. New landscaping, and an update to the front porch with a new railing, columns and sconces, help elevate the curb appeal.
Lush plantings around the pool and pool house form a natural windbreak and also give the setting a sense of privacy. Low voltage lighting accents the surroundings. Plants include a grove of aspen trees and large evergreen trees.
