A large vaulted pergola extends off the back of the house, sheltering a lounge area and an outdoor kitchen. The pergola's wood beams and high ceiling make the space have a light, open feel that transitions well into the rest of the yard.
This modern deck features natural wood planks that line the floor and wall, creating a minimalist look. A small outdoor kitchen features a stainless steel grill and counter space for quick food preparation, while nearby stairs lead straight to the hot tub area. Lush plants add a bit of liveliness throughout the space.
Create a beautiful piece of indoor or outdoor decor with a piece of plywood, a pile of sticks and some wood glue. Cut the plywood into a roughly pumpkin shape. Use wood glue to completely cover the plywood with rows of sticks. It's ok if the sticks hang over the edge of the wood a bit. Place weights on the sticks and let the glue dry for at least 24 hours. Trim the edges of the sticks and sand if necessary to create your refined pumpkin shape. Add a fabric leaf and display your pumpkin in your garden, beside your front door, or hang it on the living room wall.
An arched stone entry bridges the living room and kitchen in this Tuscan-inspired home in Austin, Texas. In the living room, a beamed ceiling and warm wood finishes give a nod to Mediterranean design, while a wall of glass offers sweeping views of the outdoors. The stone fireplace ties in the with both the accent wall and the home's exterior.
The original plan was to do a deck off the kitchen, but at the last minute, James got the idea to make it a screened porch. No bugs here! With a striped outdoor sofa from CB2, a wood-slice coffee table from World Market and a sunny round rug from Frontgate, it’s a chic continuation of their living space — and the family’s go-to spot for watching movies with a projector.
After white and natural wood, gray is the most popular finish for kitchen cabinets, but this is one trendy color that’s not at risk of going out of style. “Muted colors are soothing and easy to live with, and a signature of my work,” says designer Angela Free. “This home is located in the foggy San Francisco Marina district and the neutral yet rich palette allows for a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors.”
As seen on Love It Or List It, the floors throughout the main floor are now a beautiful 6.5" wide maple wood boards called 'Wave Rock.' Opening up this main floor was done by removing the wall that housed the fireplace. The wall that divided the dining room from the kitchen is now a big open peninsula for the family to gather around. The paint color in the dining and kitchen area is Behr 'Creme de la Creme.' The trim is painted 'Popped Corn.' The color in the living room and hall is 'Salt Glaze.' Jillian pulled her design together with the glass chandelier that helps to add a traditional touch to the space.
The renovation of this 12,000-square-foot home will transform into an extravagant mountain retreat featuring a new 2,500-square-foot guest cottage opening onto a summer kitchen and pool bar, 75′ long infinity edge pool, tennis pavilion, extensive water features, garden and hiking trails.
