As seen on Rock the Block, HGTV star Jasmine Roth created a bright space for a dining room next to a custom-built island covered with Dolomite marble and Northern California Dark Walnut with seating for eight, to transform the kitchen and dining area of her house and “rock” it to the highest increase in market value to win season one of Rock The Block.
A cool, exposed-bulb light fixture, leather dining chairs, and vertical wall planters combine to create a bright, relaxed dining space in Jasmine's California casual style home.
HGTV star Leanne Ford created a dining room area with a white stone wall to complement her trademark white on white design next to her open, airy kitchen, as seen on Rock the Block.
When Rehab Addict star, Nicole Curtis, brought the designers an old barn to use in their kitchen renovations, Leanne Ford decided to trim her kitchen window in thick, rustic barn wood. Painted white, the unique trim pairs perfectly with the charming, well-worn look of the rest of the space.
Fountains flow from metal cages filled with natural, neutral rocks into small concrete pools. A center cement block allows for easy passage across each pool. The rocks give the design a pleasing natural texture and zen feel.
This elegant backyard features a custom gunite swimming pool slide with custom rock waterfalls. .... The slide structure and steps were built using concrete blocks on the outside with stone veneer, stone treads, and the slide was "stiff" concrete poured over rebar with a smooth finish.
Two fully open walls allow for tons of natural light to flood into the contemporary living room visible from the patio. Natural stones surround a series of large cement blocks creating the patio floor. A smooth wood ceiling gives a great textural contrast to the rocks.
Light yellow walls provide a bright background for this contemporary sitting room. A black modern swiveled lamp stands next to a modern lounge rocking chair with white cushions. A striped pillow compliments the colors of the multicolor blocked rug. Tall black and white shelves provide perfect book storage.
The sleek look of this covered patio is the perfect fit for a modern home. A full-length light strip gives off a warm glow over the two concrete floor panels. The natural rock bed and row of small greenery bring beautiful natural textures to the space, while a concrete privacy wall outlines the perimeters without blocking any natural light.
The walls pull back at this modern home to open the living and dining room up to the natural elements. The wooden ceiling extends out to create a simple covered patio with concrete blocks set in a natural rock bed. Light colored furniture keeps the space calm with orange accent pieces adding pops of color to bring the design to life.
Holographic pool tile shines above the negative edges of this pool, catching the eye with sparks of color. A natural rock retaining wall ties over the pool with a built in waterfall feature flowing into the pool. A desert inspired planted section separates the pool wall from the second tier retaining wall with neutral concrete blocks and black fencing.
In addition to reflecting light, glass backsplashes can actually bring sunshine into a kitchen. The vistas beyond this kitchen were nothing to write home about, so designers at Carnemark installed detail-obscuring glass blocks on either side of the stove's backsplash, which is made of volcanic rock by SieMatic. Quarried in Italy, this stone is similar to that used by the ancient Romans to build roads, and has been used for various surface applications from building cladding to tile to countertops for centuries.
