We love the inspired detail of this "drop zone" from designer Breckyn Alexander where coats, backpacks and other items can be dropped. An oversized drawer beneath keeps clutter in check. Add a few more pillows and the space, with its pretty brass lights, would be the perfect reading nook to hide away on a rainy day with a good book.
These solid cherry doors lead to a meeting area that occupies part of the top floor of Pereira & O'Dell San Francisco offices. The exposed brick in this space is complemented by the modern design of the room. A modern, glass conference table and eight modern chairs allow for a comfortable negotiating space, while a modern sofa adds more comfortable seating. Two modern, yellow chairs give the space a bit of personality and color, while the patterned pillows on the sofa add texture and depth.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the new kitchen is located where the old, small living room previously was. The walls on the first floor have been removed, creating an open modern floor plan with views to both the living room and dining area. Updated kitchen cabinetry, new appliances, a decorative tile backsplash and the elongated central island make the new kitchen the center of life on the first floor. Finally, new window treatments, colorful pillows and updated recessed and pendant lighting give a modern and fun vibe throughout.
This garage was transformed into a fun and colorful apartment, giving the space a youthful look. Sage green chaises are positioned at the foot of an Indian-inspired canopy bed with sheer curtains. The lofty layering of the bed is soft and airy, which carries over the melon-colored window treatments. Bold throw pillows and a shag rug complete the eclectic look.
Every outdoor retreat needs a few amenities, like a simple DIY bar. A bar like this is easy to stock whether you’re hosting yourself, family or a crowd, and it can also pull double duty as a privacy wall if you place it strategically. To decide other items you might want to include in your retreat, think about how you’ll use it. A meditation retreat calls for cushy pillows and zen-inspired stones, while a spot for an evening sip of wine needs only a comfy seat with wide arms.
Pattern mixing is a designer's trick for bringing motion and depth into a space. From the overscaled, lattice-like shape of the FLOR tiles to the diamond stripes of the duvet cover to the geometric print of the throw pillows, pattern is used to draw the eye up from the ground, onto the bed and up to the abstract art.
White walls and high ceilings accented by arched entryways set the stage for a multi-layered design moment. The seating is the star in this space with two side chairs upholstered with handira - traditional Moroccan wedding blankets. Behind them a beaded Yoruba Chair showcases a colorful pattern. On the sofa, an Indian Kantha quilt covers the seat cushions accented by Indian block-print pillows. Add to that an ornately carved wooden coffee table, a beautifully decorated fireplace mantle and loads of art and accessories, and you have a perfectly designed desert oasis.
A gray-brown sectional faces a pair of neutral armchairs with nailhead trim finish in this inviting living room. An area rug covers the majority of the floor space blending the open floor section in the middle of the room with the rest of the design. Patterned curtains add a touch of yellow accent echoed subtly in the mix of throw pillows.
This breakfast nook provides a cozy space to wake up and enjoy your morning cup of coffee. The large unobstructed window fills the area with light while the bench, built into the corner, gives ample seating and tons of pillows to lean on. The traditional Mediterranean style of the kitchen is modernized with a neutral gray wall color. Storage isn't a problem in the eating area, the bench has been outfitted with concealed storage for dishes or linens.
Keeping it cozy and glamorous, this Halloween porch decor features a chic white twig wreath. Add some Christmas ornaments or ribbon and it easily transitions to your next holiday. Cool black branches turn an existing garden pot into great Halloween decor when you add some moss at the base. Keep pillows and throws handy in wooden bins for cool nights.
The light hardwood flooring brightens this traditional living room with neutral sectional. A circular patterned ottoman and striped patterned rug add shape to the room while orange throw pillows provide a pop of color. The dark wooden entertainment contrasts against the neutral color scheme of the room. A modern fireplace is set in a brick section of the wall to complete the room.
White paneling surrounds this room with a crisp, clean backdrop for pops of color in the furnishings. Symmetry is key in this space with streamlined furniture arranged around the focal mantel and wall-mounted television. Accent colors, chartreuse and soft lavender, are used for sophisticated pops of color in small benches, flowers and accent pillows. A whitewashed sculptural console is placed behind the sofa to smoothly transition from the foyer.
Just like interior designers do inside the home, infuse an outdoor dining area with texture to make it more attractive. On this porch, the chopped firewood, stone tabletop, vases with rough and glossy stripes and floral-inspired pillows do the job. “I like to bring in as many textures as I can,” says Monica Stewart, a designer in Athens, Ga., who owns The Misfit House. A potted succulent also draws the eye through the space.
A mix of high end stripes and patterns were used to create a layered pillow plan, and bedding from Overstock.com rounded out the bed's look. A vintage star found the day before install proved to be the perfect accent on the wall! Traditional wall lights added texture and functionality to the space.
Using the clients' existing bed, Jenn Feldman Designs created a nursery that could also function as a guest room when family came to visit, also allowing the youngest brother of three boys to seamlessly grow into his room.
Creative Spaces Interior Design crafted this teenage retreat using color and eclectic furnishings for the family room. The turquoise blue of the walls and the cornflower blue of the sofa anchor the space allowing the strong stripe of the room's back wall to take center stage. The room's area rugs, pillows and artwork pick up the colors in the stripes (orange, kelly green, royal blue and yellow) for an overall pleasing effect.
A floating wood bench is mounted on a stone base wall and padded with black throw pillows. Black, bowl-shaped fire pits placed near the bench break up the empty space leading to the in-ground hot tub. Standing lanterns add a touch of decoration and functionality for evening lighting. Trees and plants surround the area creating natural privacy and adding color.
A contemporary blue, white and gold study is adorned with blue chaises from Bjork Studio and custom blue and gold pillows with fabric from Holland & Sherry. The round Halcyon chandelier by Kelly Wearstler dazzles with its mix of quartz and brass while a serpentine mirror by Rose Tarlow ensnares a fireplace. The study by J. Wheeler Designs was part of the 2017 Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse.
Glee creator Ian Brennan's living room was redesigned by HGTV Design Star winner Emily Henderson, as seen on HGTV's Secrets From A Stylist. Emily makes the fireplace the focal point by hanging a huge statement portrait of President William Harrison above it and flanking it with antique sconces. She creates vignettes around the room with accessories that reflect Ian's personality to give the space a homier feel. Built-in shelves beautifully frame a large window providing maximum storage. A white eyelet pendant light, soft throw pillows, and pouf ottoman are cozy accessories.
