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they knew they wanted a sophisticated style that was a little more casual and up-to-date, so designers transformed the outdated library into a beautiful, contemporary-chic great room for the family.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.
This inviting entryway mixes warm walnut floors with grasscloth wallpaper and brass accents to create a transitional design. A small table with a modern table lamp sits beneath the metallic mirror with a modern art gallery wall continuing down the hallway.
Scroll-back chairs surround a simple wood dining table in this open-concept room. A Chesterfield sofa in the shared living room space mirrors the design and color of the dining chairs. A gallery wall over the sofa showcases artwork and photography, adding personality to the space.
This eclectic living room features a black-and-white-striped area rug and gold round coffee table. Several small red-framed mirrors are arranged gallery style on a nearby wall, while red and yellow throw pillows provide an additional pop of color in the neutral room.
Upon entering this stylish space, a hallway leads from the rest of the house into this chic teen's space. A gallery wall creates a cool focal point as guests enter the space, while a modern, white dresser with gold features and a classic white mirror give the space a chic feel.
A coat of arms and a French expression — fittingly, about green lentils — adorn this dining room's settee. The settee has a multicolored striped pillow for added comfort during meals at the rustic wood dining table. The transitional room's chandelier is reflected in a wood-framed mirror along with a gallery wall on the opposite side of the room.
Opposite the mirror vignette, a gallery wall of framed art, including prints from Georgia O’Keeffe alongside some of Matthew’s photography work, sits above a beautiful vintage credenza. As a DIY moment, Amy added brass knobs to the honey wood credenza. Changing the knobs is one of her favorite secrets for transforming vintage pieces for a modern space.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson borrowed 15 square feet from the adjacent guest bedroom to carve out space for this chic bathroom vanity. To give the room a first class feel, Sarah added a large silver-framed round mirror, a mosaic tile backsplash and a floating, custom-built wood cabinet with sleek modern hardware and plenty of extra storage. At the far end of this spa bathroom sits a cozy soaking tub with a built-in ledge perfect for holding candles or a glass of wine. A small, linear gallery wall adds color to the monochromatic space and boosts the room's spa-like ambiance.
