A rustic tongue-and-groove pine door, accented with black steel strips, is a preview of the materials used throughout this modern mountain house. Slate tile runs from the front porch through the foyer and onto the back patio, creating the feeling of one large, indoor-outdoor room.
For this city nursery designed by Interior Design Fair, a large armoire with sliding pine doors and open shelves on each side provides flexible toy storage. Wire baskets hold smaller stuffed animals, fabric bins provide a home for larger toys, and woven baskets currently storing cloth diapers and receiving blankets can transition to hold collections of small toys as the child grows.
The beautiful foyer of the HGTV Dream Home 2014, a vacation getaway located in Truckee, Calif., minutes away from Lake Tahoe boasts this rustic pine wood front door as an entryway into the vacation home. The light wood offers a striking visual contrast to the cool gray slate tile of the floor.
This long hallway is a warm welcome to the master bedroom ahead and features three closets for extra storage. The louvered pine doors add the the charm of the pine shiplap walls and reclaimed hemlock wood floors that give it that genuine cottage feel.
In this mudroom from Tanya Collins Design, an antique pine armoire, painted teal, boosts storage and creates a focal point that enlivens the otherwise neutral scheme. The built-in cabinets near the door, big enough to house bulky items, are painted the same shade as the walls so that they blend into the background. A framed chalkboard-paint wall serves as a central spot for memos and messages.
Bright white tiles and pine combine for a fresh and bright, contemporary aesthetic in this spacious bathroom. Sliding glass doors separates a freestanding tub and a door that opens up to a private outdoor space.
The space gets reconfigured, with the old exterior door closed off and covered with new ceiling-height cabinets, white tile backsplash and modern stainless appliances that include a double oven and gas range
Raid your yard for pine cones and form them into a decorative hanging cluster. Gather between six and 18 pine cones and tie a ribbon at their tops. Once all ribbon is added, cluster the pine cones together neatly, then tie them all together at the top. Add a chunky ribbon or bow to conceal the tied knot, then hang on a door, in a window or even directly on the wall.
You don’t have to wait for a custom-made island to enjoy the style and functionality of a stone countertop. The Bluestone Kitchen Island, $1,999, from Crate & Barrel is crafted with reclaimed pine from old buildings and doors and topped with a lustrous slab of bluestone for a high-end look. Inside, two roomy drawers open with antiqued iron pulls, while spacious open shelves and two iron towel bars provide additional storage. The top slab of bluestone is wet sanded and waxed to a smooth finish that reveals its organic character. Two counter-height stools can be tucked inside for casual, in-kitchen dining.
This custom kitchen contains white Shaker cabinets and leaded-glass panel doors to achieve a warm but modern look. The pine floors are an unexpected contrast to the stainless steel range hood and a nice balance to the white subway tile backsplash.
