To better enjoy the Colorado countryside, HGTV fan Mtn Livin re-created this 1,200-square-foot patio area to include a fountain, seating area and built-in grill that combines reclaimed barn wood with a granite countertop.
A peaceful and relaxing sitting area with a soft gray color palette is accented with natural wooden details. The contemporary dresser adds to the traditional feel of the space while the patterned pillow and gray throw complete the cozy feel.
Garden designer Holley Jaakkola's gorgeous home in Savannah's coastal Isle of Hope community 15 minutes from downtown can often suggest a film set. This beautifully manicured, idyllic, old-fashioned 1850 home sits on a quiet country road where children in bathing suits ride bikes and the pace is calm and removed from the fracas of modern life. The home is separated from the water by that narrow road and the entire Isle of Hope community has a sleepy, lost-in-time attitude.
Designer Bronwyn Poole was inspired by the colors and patterns of the circus in designing this room. Poole wanted it to feel alive and happy, but also balanced and easy on the eye to induce a peaceful state of mind.
