The dining room of this home features a removable pocket-door-style wall that opens out onto a concrete patio. The patio consists of concrete slabs separated by narrow strips of grass and features a sitting area with a built-in fire pit.
Just off the kitchen, a breakfast nook beckons good food and great conversation. With no door between the two and a large window allowing the kitchen to view the breakfast nook and beyond, these two small spaces feel larger and more open, flowing together and improving the functionality and style of the first floor.
A full wall opens up to connect this living room to the balcony giving it an even more spacious design. Blue velvet arm chairs add a pop of color against the neutral color scheme. Matching cabinets create a mirrored look around the fireplace. The tray ceiling and traditional style furniture are echoed on the balcony to tie the spaces together.
The evening breeze blows through white curtains into this huge, romantic patio space in this Puerto Vallarta home. The polished finish of the graphic tile floor creates a lovely contrast to the rougher stone ceiling. A large sectional allows space to stretch out and enjoy the gorgeous architecture.
This large open, living room is inviting and decorative while remaining spacious. The mirrored furniture design features midcentury modern chairs and light gray sofas surrounding a gold coffee table adding a shine to the center of the room. An open wall connects the indoor room to the outdoors stretching the room even farther.
This stylish entertainment room features a mini kitchen and living room space. The interior wall is open to the connected indoor basketball court with a half glass wall railing. Floating orange shelves in the kitchen compliment the shag orange rug and orange patterned throw pillows in the living room adding bold accent color throughout the space.
An open walk in and half walls give this already spacious shower an even more open design, connecting it to the rest of the bathroom. Gold shower heads and storage cubbies are mirrored on either side of the built in bench. Neutral marble tile covers the fixture for a timeless look.
“The challenge with an open space plan is to create warmth, balance, interest and vignettes for privacy," says designer Debra Ackerbloom. The beauty of the wine wall divider in this space is that it "allows light to pass through, yet gives the illusion of a wall. It’s sophisticated, simple and elegant.”
White walls and an open layout maximize visual space in this unbelievably gorgeous bachelor pad. Coffered ceiling and a dramatic marble accent wall add interest to the space, white a recessed lights pair well with a couple of classic pendant lights for a great mix of task and ambient lighting.
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. Paint: Benjamin Moore Dove Wing, Pendants: Remains Lighting Eugene, Brick: Brick It Used NY.
Thanks to an open floor plan, the funky dining room is the epicenter of this contemporary downtown loft. A purple accent wall outlines the dining room and kitchen, while a mix of lighting helps to define each space. The blown glass pendants above the dining table add sculptural elegance.
The owners of this home dreamed of having an open concept space, but they didn't know how to make their dreams a reality. Enter Fixer Upper's Chip and Joanna Gaines. The Gainses removed the walls that used to separate the common spaces of the home, opening up the heart of house. Then, they added cool features to make each space unique-a custom table for the dining room, a new fire place for the living room, double islands for the kitchen-creating the home of this family's dreams.
The Wood House exemplifies a new concept and functional materials-driven design, featuring bold characteristics with local woods and glass walls.
