There are many eye-catching elements in this white custom kitchen, like the extra wide crown molding, nickel-plated farmhouse sink, fabric roller shades, glass-front cabinet doors and honed countertops.
The master bedroom of the HGTV Urban Oasis offers its own private access to a terrace. Roller blinds and sheer linen draperies, drawn during daylight hours, reduce heat gain and improve interior comfort.
Throwback to the old days with this playroom featuring a vintage game system and roller skates. A floating media console modernizes the space. Wallpaper with a subtle game system pattern completes the design.
Built-in bookcases provide open storage, as well as hidden organization in sleek drawers below. The glass round table is paired with contemporary roller chairs for a game area or dining spot that overlooks beautiful views of San Diego.
This spacious walk-in shower with adjacent bathtub is decoratively accented with neutral tones and a tiled backsplash. A roller shade conceals the large window for privacy, while still allowing natural light to flow into the room.
A classic gray and white color palette gives this kitchen a bright, open feel, from the marble countertops to the geometric patterned tile around the kitchen window with custom roller shade. Gold-colored cabinet pulls compliment the brushed faucet and under-mounted sink.
Open shelves keep cookbooks and everyday tableware handy but off the countertops in this transitional kitchen. Roller shades on the glass doors and window allow for natural lighting or privacy. A white subway-tile backsplash with gray grout complements the room's white and gray color scheme.
Outfitting your lawn with a set of simple stripes isn’t that hard, and it’s good for your lawn, too. Light reflecting off of blades of grass bent in different directions create the dark and light patterns. The grass most often is bent down by the pressure applied by rollers attached to the back of a lawn mower. The pros use reel mowers with multiple rollers. You can buy striping kits for your mower, or if you’re handy and want to save some bucks, you can make one yourself with a little bit of PVC.
Eleonore and Albin Bresson celebrated their nuptials at Prater, a public park in Vienna, where they and their guests rode roller coasters and carousels in between the ceremony and dinner. “When the carousel seats came down, they played the wedding march for us, and the crowd applauded — that was both embarrassing and adorable,” Eleonore says. The moments were captured by photographer David Zaoui. Wearing a wedding dress on roller coasters was exciting and even terrifying, says Eleonore, whose dress didn’t survive the day. “I'm not planning to use it again, so I'm actually happy that way,” she says.

This kitchen features white cabinets paired with a full-height blue glass tile backsplash. Open shelving displays neatly arranged dishes, while colorful chairs are arranged at a custom dining table made from a pine top and steel legs with rollers. Black leather stools at the wood-topped island provides extra space for seating.
Add inexpensive blinds, roller shades or ready-made draperies to any windows that aren't covered. A guest in your home is on vacation and will appreciate a dark room for sleeping in. If late nights are part of your plans, consider purchasing blackout drapes, which will more efficiently block out early morning sunlight.
The shower stall in the master bathroom of HGTV Urban Oasis 2013 is clad floor to ceiling in a mix of tumbled marble and glass mosaic tile.
