This light and bright kitchen blends brown and white wood cabinets, as well as a few glass front cabinets, with neutral quartzite countertops. Robin's egg blue stools line the kitchen island, while a white subway tile backsplash and hardwood floors provide finishing touches.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines combined a formerly separated and cramped kitchen and dining room into a living space with lots of breathing room by cutting a wide archway. Rustic details like the shiplap wood trim on the range hood and dining room wall and open shelving are balanced by the white subway tile backsplash and quartzite countertops.
To add warmth to the white kitchen, designers added White Oak detail around the space's upper cabinet. This addition plays nicely off the White Oak flooring. Subtle texture throughout the space, in details such as the white herringbone tile backsplash and the gray and black veining in the quartzite countertop, kept the space feeling light and airy, while contrast was used sparingly and the Turkish Kilim rug adds pattern and a playful, cheery style to the otherwise neutral color scheme.
This modern master bathroom features a mix of stone surfaces for a polished finish. Ocean blue travertine walls, fusion quartzite counters and seagrass limestone flooring create a sharp, geometrical look with calming neutral colors. A large vanity mirror and glass enclosed shower keep the room feeling open and spacious. Floating wood shelves stack beside the bathtub for easy and organized storage.
To add a luxe feel with family friendly durability and easy cleaning, designer Christen Ales chose a bold, green Pindler performance velvet for the counter stools, which add a pop of color to the space.
The homeowners wanted a light, airy kitchen space that blends into the outdoor entertainment space. To help achieve this goal, designer Christen Ales installed walls of windows to separate the indoor and outdoor spaces. This feature allows plenty of beautiful natural light into the space to reflect off of the neutral color palette, creating the feel the homeowners desired.
The homeowners wanted an open space in their newly remodeled home, but they didn't want their spaces to feel jumbled, so designers achieved this feel in the kitchen by using the cabinets to set the parameters for the space. To create this definition, a peninsula was added on the third "wall" of the kitchen, separating the it from the hallway without making either space feel too closed off, giving each area its own identity.
To help the dining room maintain its airy feeling despite its small space, designers used a glass top table with a sculptural wood base. The finish on the dining chair legs are painted so that they coordinated with the chandelier, while the upholstery adds the texture and black and gray contrast that is carried throughout these two spaces.
