In the master bedroom, the wall on which the bed rests is covered in a gorgeous, metallic silver grass cloth that conceals the hidden door to the closet. Above the mirrored, four-poster bed, a brass chain link chandelier makes a bold statement, while rich texture was added with black faux fur pillow shams and blanket at the food of the bed. To personalize the space even further, designers had a modern, monogram printed on metallic linen.
Susan Brunstrum's unique design for this master bathroom involves floating the vanity in the center of the room and providing cabinetry against the walls to maximize storage opportunities. She placed silver and white drum pendants at the front and behind the vanity and matching sconces on either side of the vanity mirror. This unexpected design creates usable space in the center of the room.
The living room in this beach house is the perfect complement to the ocean view that surrounds it. The all white fabrics in this living room bring the light into the space, while the linen of the couch and the ottoman are relaxing and inviting. The floor to ceiling windows bring in the natural beauty of the ocean, and the mirrors hanging on the walls behind the couch reflect that beauty making this space the ultimate place to relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Brown mosaic tile serves as a springboard for this bathroom's casual-chic design sensibility, while twin mirrors visually widen the space. The guest bathroom, from the 2012 HGTV Green Home, has beautifully finished wood cabinets and floors to warm up the room and red accents add a bright pop of color against white walls. The signature tile is a frosted glass micro-block in a tortoise shell-inspired shade. The upper-floor space also features interior windows opening to the adjacent tairwell.
A powder room is another name for a small bathroom space with a suitable vanity, bathroom sink and mirror. It is a high traffic area where you can add a lot of style and leave your guests with a great first impression. A soft blue-green vanity, marble countertop and geometric tile accent wall, clearly states your design choices are unique and playful. If you want to try something new, you can try mixing two styles and make your own unique bathroom.
The back half of the sunroom features many functional features. From the wall of windows and the Nano door that leads to the outdoor dining room to the twenty foot long window seat, designers cleverly used every inch of the space in order to create a room that was cozy and stylish while mixing in unique pieces, such as the mirror with the coral eglosmise frame above the chest and the black tables in front of the window seat, add interest to the space's design.
As seen on Good Bones, this small bathroom was in need of some sprucing. Once a small, dark room, Karen and Mina have transformed it into a bright, colorful space. A new coat of white paint on the walls reflects the light from the window as well as the light above the vanity, making the space feel bright, while pops of turquoise in the vanity and the artwork give the room some color. To finish off the design, a modern, mirrored plant stand gives the space a splash of personality.
Glass elements piled on for optimum glamor and their lovely reflective properties translate to a trend you can easily introduce into your home. A portion of the wall is mirrored, but even the addition of glass accessories on a table or dresser can achieve this light, elegant effect. The Old Hollywood feel of this room is amplified with the palm-shaped dining room table with glass top and a subtle, almost shadow-effect custom mural in this stunning dining room from Philip Sides Interior Design. More sugary pastels add to the sumptuous mood.
Embrace shiplap, the wide wooden boards that have historically been used to construct barns and older homes and a design favorite of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. Allison Worley, senior designer at Atlanta's Haven Design Works, installed shiplap in her bathroom and painted it in Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray. Shiplap can be done as an accent wall or installed along the entire room. Haven Design Works owner Donna Mathis adds that putting shiplap or tile just behind a vanity mirror can change the whole look of a bathroom.
In the master bedroom, a large, sliding glass door that leads onto the home's private balcony lets in plenty of natural light that reflects off the room's white walls. Windows behind each of the nightstands allow in extra light, or can be covered by the Ratan shades, adding warmth to the space. Mirrored doors create a brighter space, while soft, neutral bed linens make the space more inviting. The artwork hanging above the bed ties the space together and adds a splash of personality.
Open concept is the name of the design game in this house, and the bathroom is no exception. To keep the small bathroom from feeling closed up, the walls and ceilings have been painted white to reflect the natural light that rushes in from the bathroom's one window. The light in the space makes the room feel larger, while the mirror over the sink helps to reflect light and makes the space feel even larger. Finally, the glass shower in the space continues to create the illusion of extra space by not closing off the room.
Kelley is a proponent of breaking the rules, and opted to paint her apartment a cool off-black shade. The color absolutely works as a strong backdrop for the myriad of beautiful elements that this editor and creative director has brought home. In the dining room, a beautifully textured “Porcupine Quill” Mirror from Horchow, pops against the dark black wall. The hand-painted piece has a sculptural quality, as do many of the pieces that Kelley has in her home.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson transformed this once dark and dated dining room into a chic, updated space perfect for entertaining. A new chair rail was added for visual interest and to allow Sarah to install two types of chic beige wallpaper. Dark wood accents in the table, floor and mirror balance the room's primary light, airy color and lend a "steakhouse" feel. Sarah finished the space by closing in an awkward half-wall with antique leaded glass windows repurposed from an old library cabinet.
This bathroom stared out with a huge roman raised tub, orange floral wallpaper and a dark enclosed shower. he walls got a textured wallpaper that added some subtle color and another texture to the space. The shower was a complete overhaul and got a new window, brand new tile and a frosted glass panel for some privacy while still keeping the overall feeling open and light. The cabinets got a paint job and added casing around the mirrors to create more of a custom feel.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, Jillian Harris' overall design for Joyce and Steven was a mix of both their desires. Joyce wanted a timeless design that would stand the test of time and Steven wanted it to be contemporary. Here, the master bedroom, painted Porpoise color, with a Starburst mirror on the wall combines timeless class with a more contemporary piece of art. The headboard was made from an old door found in Joyce and Steven's garage.
According to my rules, powder rooms are supposed to be fabulous! It’s the one public space that everyone visits privately, so I always strive to make a great impression. I love what an over sized piece of artwork does in a small space, and this is a big one. We did a simple strie faux finish on the walls and an always-chic Carrera marble on the vanity which we repeated for many of the surfaces throughout the home. Believe it or not, the mirror was the last item I sourced, and it was worth the hunt. It’s special, just like powder rooms should be.
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.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
