Centered around a newly built brick fireplace, this cozy family room features two gray armchairs and a comfortable sectional. Notice how a painting of a cow, floating wood shelves and a wood coffee table all give the space a hint of farmhouse style, just like the living room.
The existing fireplace in this midcentury modern home was given a fresh update by painting the dull brown brick surround a bright, light-reflecting white -- an easy, low-cost update. A wooden mantel was added, making the space look fresh and modern without replacing the entire fireplace.
A modern yet dated suburban ranch got a major facelift to create this stylish home with smart curb appeal. The corner window grouping, which was formerly a detracting feature, becomes an aesthetic highlight when given a new look and paired with matching cedar beams, window boxes and a new door.

This apartment is in a beautiful landmarked building in the Wall Street area. During its renovation, the designers strived for a modern feel but also wanted to pay homage to the Old World charm of the original building elements: massive windows, ornate ironwork furnaces and dark wood floors. The previously enclosed kitchen was opened up and the materials chosen to highlight the feel of old New York: reclaimed brick on the walls, steel countertops and backsplash, even the pendants have the look of gas lights.

White painted brick and natural light from large windows brings a lightness around the open floor plan of this New York City loft. The hardwood floor finish compliments the natural wood support beams that create a natural room separation.

As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Joanna removed the brick from the home's original fireplace and replaced it with Texas limestone and installed a simple, wood beam mantel to create a focal point in this elegant space. To create a cleaner look, the trim around each of the doors was removed and the walls were painted a modern beige to warm the space.
The front porch was designed to look like an extension to the home. The new stone terrace matches the brick on the home. The terrace is covered with copper roof and held up with 5 hand painted columns. The Moroccan decorative lights dance in the wind and invite guests into the home. It was finished off with a new wooden door and sidelights.
