This row house stands out against its boring brick neighbors with a pale blue facade and an updated porch. Railings from Railing Dynamica, Inc. and comfy porch furniture from Pier 1 bring this exterior to life, as seen on HGTV's Curb Appeal.
Exposed brick and hardwood flooring provide a traditional foundation in this row house's open living space. A mix of contemporary furniture and primitive country furnishings gives this inviting area an updated, transitional look that flows seamlessly between the sitting area and dining room.
Victorian architecture, which was so common in 19th century-built row houses, remains a popular style in home design. It’s evident here in the two-level bay windows and front-porch design of this Bay Area residence.
The goal for this decorating project was to create a functional and attractive living space for a single lady. The client had just renovated a very small row house by opening the living room and kitchen into one large space. Decorating Den Interiors had 360 total square feet of living, dining and kitchen space and needed to incorporate some existing furniture, both for budgetary and sentimental reasons. The result is a stunning transitional design with a tasteful mix of contemporary lines and classic, traditional pieces.
The exposed beams called for a "rustic" feel that was relaxed and fun. The designers added the sisal rug and neutral tones in the furniture. The color was brought in through the artwork and bookshelf. Overall the mix of midcentury furniture, minimal dining table, lighting and great artwork makes the room fresh but a relaxed space to gather with friends and family.
The reason for the large, painted stripe behind the clients' white-framed painting was so it "popped" off the white wall. Before that was done, the painting got lost and did not have the contrast it needed.
As a House Hunters favorite on HGTV, this memorable kitchen in Maui reflects plenty of space to entertain the whole family in this open-concept design. The large island provides lots of seating, while subdued earth tones and travertine flooring lend natural warmth to the room.
The second-level landing of this renovated row house gets a midcentury-modern vibe with custom drapes and a vintage chair. The existing built-in bookcases house the homeowners' art and books while adding interest to the neutral space.
A once-bare, tiny yard behind a row house in Brooklyn, N.Y., now features a canopy of plants, such as crepe myrtles and camellias. Landscape designer Michael Van Valkenburgh planted trees that naturally cool the garden terrace and house and created a bird habitat. The new paving is mica schist, which is arranged in a pattern that mimics logs flowing down a river. The garden was a 2015 ASLA award winner.
The small space behind a Brooklyn, N.Y., row house was enclosed on two sides by a 12-foot brick wall and bare with no plants. To create the illusion of a bigger space, Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, added ivy to the walls and brought in plants such as camellias and crape myrtles. The project was an 2015 American Society of Landscape Architects award winner.
For the master bathroom of a 1870s row house in Brooklyn, NY, designer Lorraine Bonaventura designed a vanity in keeping with the home’s historic style. A vintage mirror hangs above the white-painted vanity, which Bonaventura fitted with polished nickel fixtures. “Five deep drawers provide enough storage for all the toiletries,” she says. “The four seagrass baskets hold towels.”
The living room inside this 1840's row home features large ceilings with wooden beams and hardwood flooring. Midcentury modern furniture and bold artwork were added to create an eclectic, but timeless design.
