As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson updated this boring dining room with stylish, mid-century modern decor. Vintage oval mirrors and blue floating cabinets are a chic complement to the refurbished antique dining chairs Sarah found at a local thrift store. New french doors replace the room's old windows to allow plenty of natural light in this bright, open space.
The rooms in the home were carefully renovated to maintain the building's beauty and many of the original details. Designer Alexa Hampton was in charge of the interior design, freshening and updating the style with more modern comforts.
The shelves and frames for the custom barn doors in this kitchen have been stained to match the cabinets and the base for the kitchen island. The natural color of the wood is infused with a hint of charcoal to coordinate these details with the cabinets and the gray and white tile floor and wall. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson accented this chic antique sideboard with a small gallery wall of black and white vintage photographs. An added chair rail allowed Sarah to play with two different patterns of wallpaper—a bold, linear design below and a natural, whimsical print above.
Vintage trophies for toothbrushes and other grooming supplies sit on a custom concrete sink in this bathroom filled with clever details. Designer Dana Lynch used hide-covered milking stools and antlers for ball caps to add to the whimsical, charmingly retro feel of this boys' bath.
To add color to the updated, yet still authentic feeling kitchen and dining room spaces, designers on America's Most Desperate Kitchens continued the mint green color from the kitchen into the dining room. The mint green of the refrigerator and the KitchenAid reflect flecks of mint green in the custom, large print tile floor. The same accent color enters the dining room with the vintage, mint green pendant light.
Unique was what the homeowner was looking for in the design of her apartment, so designers created a headboard out of rare Oriental panels. Then, they pulled the cherry hues out of the frame with the bold, red details on and around the bed, like the lamp shades and the pillows.
Keeping with the ultra-detailed design of the Victorian home, this updated kitchen shows off plenty of interesting features. A gorgeous white subway-tile backsplash and white cabinetry contrast beautifully against the dark concrete countertop. A coffered ceiling gives the room depth, while the red kitchen island brings in a bright splash of color.
Although designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens wanted to create an authentic looking farmhouse kitchen, they also wanted to give the homeowners lots of modern luxuries, so they combined vintage inspired features, like the mint refrigerator and mixer and large print tile floor, with modern cabinets and countertops, creating a durable, elegant space.
Focusing on durability, textures and details, designer Julia Caro-Alt made this plain white room into a visually interesting and comfortable place for an active family to gather. Using reclaimed and manufactured barn wood to add texture and character, the built in cabinets have tongue and groove details, sliding barn doors, and reclaimed wood tops. The fireplace is clad in the barn wood as well.
Faux fur pillows over velvet chairs bring a beautiful texture to this sophisticated living room design. The gray and white color pairing is repeated on the graphic area rug and two-toned walls. A layered glass coffee table provides storage space while keeping the center of the room feeling open.
Marble slabs on the shower bench and curb coordinate with the penny tile floor in this elegantly detailed shower design. The shower is predominantly white, ensuring the area is a serene space for relaxation.
