This fun rockstar bedroom was designed for a young Taylor Swift fan who also loves playing the guitar. The plum duvet and shams feature raised fabric flowers, while several guitar pillows are arranged along the bed.
Homeowners wanted a simple shelving unit to help them maintain their garden, so designers built integrated steel and cedar shelving welded onto corrugated panel fencing that connects to the fence. These shelves add an area to pot and store gardening supplies next to the raised vegetable planting beds.
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down, the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric, Prospect in Shadow,” says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces), barstools, chairs and even Fido's bed.
This rocky, hillside back yard was transformed by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew. Upgrades included tiered landscaping, a covered dining area and an intimate sitting area next to a washtub firepit.
After the backyard makeover at DIY Networkâ€™s Yard Crashers, homeowners Brooke and Zach Taylor of Auburn, CA now have a lush and vibrant backyard for their entire family to enjoy- a stark contrast from the rocky hillside that took up much of their yard before! The transformation by licensed contractor Matt Blashaw and his crew includes a metal and wood pergola, hillside creek water feature, privacy screen with wood and metal, a Big Green Egg smoker and custom cart, and a firepit with seating. The fire pit sits on a raised platform with a rock wall boder. Two washtubs filled with rock form the fire pit itself which sets on a bed of decomposed granite. The pit is surrounded by custom metal privacy screens. (after)(detail)
