The combination of black cabinets and copper finishes makes a statement in this kitchen. The cabinets are given a weathered look to reflect the home's colonial style, while the copper hood adds metallic glam to the space.
The gorgeous green tile range backsplash adds depth and texture to this modern kitchen, designed by Yuko Matsumoto. Subway tile in a slightly lighter hue was cleverly used for the backsplash beneath the cabinets.
This modern kitchen has a distinct mid-century vibe, with dark brown cabinetry that extends to the ceiling for maximum storage and throwback barstools covered in a burnt-orange leather. A pot filler adds function above the cooktop.
The contained nature of a small urban courtyard gives you a huge opportunity to bring in a cool feature. Cultivators Design and Landscape purchased the orange container and retro-fitted a fountain around it for a custom industrial fountain. A fountain also can be cheaper than a waterfall. You can re-create the look as a DIY project using a garden pot you already own or hunting at yard sales.
Warm, neutral paint contrasts with exotic artwork and accessories to create an intriguing statement. The large, turquoise decorative pot adds a distinct element and brightly accents the simple, gray-toned wall. In a purposeful asymmetric presentation, handblown-glass floral art is hung along one wall in the living room. Glass sculptures in their spectacular hues of red, orange, yellow, and other colors generate an eye-caching focal point from all vantage points.
In this quirky home office, stacked tables and desks in varying styles serve as a unique built-in display and storage system. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn cut the tables in half, spray painted them with three different shades of orange, attached them to one another, and affixed them to the wall with drywall screws placed directly into studs. He painted the walls a terra-cotta tone called Clay Pot and chose a blue desk chair for contrast.
Fuchsia is a showstopper in part to full shade conditions with its dangling, multi-colored flowers. ‘Bellinto Compact Red And Violet’ fuchsia delivers a classic pink and purple color combination in a small plant that’s perfect for pots. Plants grow 8 to 16 inches tall and 10 to 14 inches wide. Look for fuchsia in many different color pairings, including pastel pink and lavender, or white and red. Flowers also come in solid shades, such as orange or deep red. Fuchsia is a hummingbird magnet, so display plants where you can easily view them from indoors to watch the air show.
