A rich mix of materials and textures adds interest and depth to this white, light-filled kitchen. Dark gray cabinetry is topped by wood around the perimeter of the room, while a large center island sports a countertop of sleek white quartz. Leather barstools and rough-hewn open shelves bring in an eclectic, homey vibe.
In this great room, soaring ceilings pair with walls full of windows to take full advantage of the home's mountain setting. The airy feel of the space is enhanced by the whimsical bubble-shaped glass pendant lights.
This dramatically eclectic dining room from designer Vanessa DeLeon has a rustic wooden table and large windows allowing natural light to fill this space. The handcrafted table by Palo Samko features his signature butterfly joinery. “In this room, the table is the show-stopper,” says DeLeon, who continued the clean, crisp look with lightweight velvet panels in dark gray on the windows. The chandelier from Currey & Company is purposefully understated.
Using light neutral colors, like a soft gray on the cabinets and countertop in this beautifully simple kitchen keeps the space feeling fresh and elegant. Exquisite modern stools with a rustic flair add a depth of style.
A covered porch has a simple rustic style thanks to a wood floor and ceiling, rocking chairs and eclectic knickknacks. A blue metal bench, white armchair and glass-and-metal coffee table round out the sitting area.
Designer Vanessa DeLeon used plush fabrics and deep gray accent pieces to put an elegant spin on this complete home remodel. The eclectic teal and black dining room features an over-dyed turquoise rug from Creative Touch in Secaucus, N.J., while the table hails from Brooklyn-based artisan woodworker Palo Samko. The neutral walls are complemented by a faux-painted black and gray ceiling and black leather chairs around a rustic hardwood dining table with mismatched candle holders and two brass pendant lights.
Surround your island with salvaged items, like brick. You can get the same type of look as this kitchen, by Atlanta designer Jenn Ryan, by scouring building supply depots for thin non-structural bricks. For this inspiration room, Ryan used brick veneer tiles that were cut in quarter-inch slices from century-old bricks in Chicago.
Change the look of existing pendants or garage sale finds with interchangeable shades, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. You can alter the room’s design style and add color with this simple change. Here, textured glass shades catch the eye and soften the light over the kitchen island.
To replicate this Old World farmhouse look, wrap a plain drop-down header in cedar to create the appearance of an antique beam, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Rustic lighting fixtures and rush-seat bar stools round out the farmhouse design.
