Herringbone hardwood floors, fine antiques and sculptural wall details are among the standout features in this transitional foyer. The dark floors form a stark, pleasing contrast with the white walls. Meanwhile, natural wood beams overhead draw the eye to the stepped ceiling and wrought-iron chandelier. A grandfather clock is a stately and unexpected touch.
There's an air of elegance in this gorgeous contemporary dining room. The pleasing look and texture of the frosted glass allows the room to be private or open. Teal and white patterned chairs are seated around the dark wood dining table lit by natural light from the windows and a drum chandelier hanging above.
A bubble chandelier adds fun texture to the classy design of this transitional living room. A neutral sofa, chaise and pair of armchairs circle the room around an area rug and cube wooden coffee table. A bay window lets in natural light framed by sliding white drapes. Yellow throw pillows and touches of gray throughout the room add accent color and detail.
The dining room in this space embraces the cabin's modern roots. With the exposed beams in the ceiling, the natural wood table and the plaid dining chairs, the space is very cabin-esque. However, Trista adds some modern accents, such as the chandelier and the artwork on the walls, to incorporate some of the modern touches that the family like so much.
As seen on HGTV's Rocky Mountain Reno, this bedroom, once covered in wood, dark and outdated, is now a bright, beautiful place for the couple to relax. A large window with neutral window treatments let in plenty of natural light, while the light color of the walls and ceiling help to reflect that light and keep the space feeling lights and open. Trista continues her design into the bedroom with the bold, blue bedspread and accent pillow. She added a modern touch with a metal chandelier hanging from the ceiling, but kept the rustic design alive with the exposed beam in the ceiling and the natural wood door to the right.
Keeping with the natural color palette of the desert environment, this corner of the main salon hides a wet bar featuring hand carved wood. Turning what could be an ordinary and purely functional part of the room into a design feature is a selection of art and accessories that ranges from black and white photographs to charcoal drawings, along with a selection of bones, statues and jewelry. Together they help to accent the desert motif and the world-traveling vibe of the space.
Of all of the spaces in her home, Nikia needed her bedroom to be the most meditative and serene. Neutral and natural colors are the keys here, with blushing pink bedding from Coyuchi (https://www.coyuchi.com/) along with a pleasing combination of patterns from the wood, bedding and smooth glass tabletop. As Nikia explains it, the room, “ is a sacred place carved out of love and tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the world. It is where I start my day, clear my head, and snuggle up to sleep.”
Replacing the heavy brick mantel with a hand-carved washed wood mantel and ledge stone hearth creates a contemporary, cozy and inviting room. A quatrefoil window was added to create visual interest while bringing in another natural light source. A stylish bar is perfect for entertaining and the bar top repeats the ledge stone from the fireplace mantel creating visual continuity and connectivity. The lucite barstool backs keep it light and allow the eye to move easily throughout the space. A blue sectional and comfy club chairs are perfect for entertaining or snuggling.
Filtered through a thin gold curtain, this dining area is able to receive some natural light from the large living room windows. The screen divides the rooms without sacrificing the open floor plan. A dark dining table with an interesting glass top filled with rocks sits beneath a rectangular candle chandelier. The table, a stone bench seat and ornate wood dining chairs provide contrast to the light yellow wall and create an intimate dining area.
You would expect a lot from the master suite closet of a $35 million dollar Beverly Hills home, and you’d get it here. More spacious than some people’s entire apartments, this closet features a flat-screen TV, a fireplace, bathroom fixtures, a small refrigerator and a grand leather chaise. An overhead skylight lets in natural lighting, while recessed lighting and a modern, crystal-draped chandelier provide illumination at night. Light wood floors and dark wood shelving give the feeling of a luxurious retail showroom rather than a closet, befitting this 15,500-square-foot mansion just a stone's throw from the luxurious Beverly Hills Hotel. Shelly and Avi Osadon, the husband and wife duo behind SEE Materials and SEE Construction, created the home.
Nicola and Michael are looking for a space where they can entertain friends and relax with their family. Jillian designed a space that is light, flowing and functional. The windows all around the room allow plenty of light into the space, while the canned lighting in the ceiling helps to add light. The neutral wall color helps to reflect the light, while the grey sofa and its pillows adds color to the space and softens it. The natural beam that crosses the room, the chandelier in the dining room and other wood accents add a rustic flare to the room.
For a family home in Houston, the designers of Laura U Interior Design created a comfortable seating area just off the kitchen. The team used color and accessories to create a cohesive look throughout the wide open area. “While the majority of the color palette is neutral, we weave a lively turquoise through each space: pillows and an area rug in the family, bar stool frames in the kitchen, and a show-stopping chandelier in the breakfast space,” they explain. “The entire space is further unified through the window treatments which are a combination of Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades and custom drapery with a turquoise band on the leading edge. A cheerful yellow and just a dash of orange set off the color scheme while touches of gold and a natural wood (teak root table and driftwood at the island) add eclectic charm.”
