Glee creator Ian Brennan's living room was redesigned by HGTV Design Star winner Emily Henderson, as seen on HGTV's Secrets From A Stylist. Emily makes the fireplace the focal point by hanging a huge statement portrait of President William Harrison above it and flanking it with antique sconces. She creates vignettes around the room with accessories that reflect Ian's personality to give the space a homier feel. Built-in shelves beautifully frame a large window providing maximum storage. A white eyelet pendant light, soft throw pillows, and pouf ottoman are cozy accessories.
The black metal canopy bed and neutral bed linens are engulfed by red walls, which serve as a contemporary background for the traditional chest of drawers and pair of abstract paintings, in this striking bedroom.
This Boston penthouse's winding staircase not only showcases its ultra hip style but allows for an uninterpreted city view as one climbs each wooden tread to the second floor. Other remarkable and interesting features are the modern cafe table in metal and glass placed underneath the stairs and the gorgeous console chest and artwork that diverge from the all-white color palette.
A metal planter is centered within an old wooden frame that hangs above an old fashioned wooden chest in the entryway. The old metal fan and old soda dispensers are unique design pieces, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
This interesting console that divides the foyer from the living room of this Haddad Hakansson-designed Boston penthouse features white, flat-front drawers set within a textured wood chest. Simple metal pulls complete the look.
Whether wood or metal, antique or new, tables, chests and other furniture can provide prep space and storage just as well as a built-in island. This mobile, expandable island came from an antiques market in Atlanta for decorator Clinton Rice's townhome. An island like this is visually interesting and gives so much versatility for food prep and entertaining; plus if you need more room in your kitchen, you can move it to the side.
