This revitalized master bedroom has been given new life. Once a drab space, Joanna added a gray accent wall to give the space texture. Light, airy curtains accentuate the natural light that pours into the space through the large sliding glass doors, softening the space. New end tables and lamps, a new rug and contemporary art put the finishing touches on this elegant Fixer Upper.
The design and build team kept the home’s existing 11-foot-high ceiling in the kitchen and dining area and extended that same ceiling height into the new addition where the living room with sliding-glass doors now sits. “Previously you couldn’t get to the backyard from the ground floor space,” says build manager Dan Faires. “Now you can see the backyard when you walk into the home.”
Large brown tiles coat the walls of this walk in shower bringing a darker hue to the surrounding neutral tones. The natural pebble flooring adds a spa-like texture and finish to the shower. A glass sliding door leads from the shower to the neutral stone bathroom flooring.
A charcoal gray pattern wallpaper creates depth in this dining room design and allows the decorative white plates to pop. A long light fixture with crystal fringe runs parallel to the wood dining table. A high-back neutral chair at the head of the table faces the curtain-covered sliding glass door.
The open floor plan of this contemporary living space is ideal for entertaining. A putting green on the balcony is easily accessed through chic sliding doors that provide an exquisite view of the urban surroundings while bathing the space in natural light. Two sofas and matching ottomans, along with clusters of octagon tables, allow for flexible arrangements, accommodating gatherings from intimate to grand. A graphic area rug in blacks and browns anchors the room, while a modern gray built-in bookcase with custom shelving anchors the wall near the entrance.
The lower level of this three-story beachfront home features a game room, bar, exercise room, full bath and laundry room. The space has beach access via sliding glass doors, and the room is designed expressly for family and friends to hang out and get comfortable. Durable fabrics are functional and transition easily from the beach to the bar. A metallic ceiling treatment adds a bit of sparkle.
Feel like a queen in this gorgeous spa bathroom where the soaking tub is lit from overhead by a chandelier. The sliding glass door opens up to an area perfect for a massage table shielded by an urban-deco screen wall made of reclaimed corrugated metal and cedar.
This Paradiso penthouse features three bedrooms and four baths, with the master bedroom offering expansive square footage and rich, metallic designs. Two large mirrors flank the king-size bed with rich, brown tones on the rug and headboard, with a crushed velvet armchair beside the sliding glass door letting in views of the nearby mountains.
Paired with a functional and beautiful low-water landscape with clean lines, this backyard art studio was designed for a client who wanted a contemporary work space outside of the main residence. The shed-style, finished studio structure with two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows maximizes the natural light entering the space.
A long row of walnut cabinetry acts as an anchoring device for the kitchen in the open-floor living space. Cabinetmaker Shaum Sinawi chose a vertical-grain walnut that pairs elegantly with the rich hue of the walnut floors. A large kitchen island provides more room for seating and food preparation, while sizable sliding glass doors let fresh air and natural light into the breakfast nook.
The shed-style art studio has two sliding glass door entries and clerestory windows to maximize the natural light entering the space. Square concrete paver walkways with Mexican pebble joints connect the studio with the house, fire pit area and concrete patio. Pea gravel makes for a clean and budget-friendly mulch material.
Natural wood finishes and clean lines characterize this open, airy space. The modern living room is designed for indoor-outdoor living thanks to a wall-sized sliding glass door that fully opens the space to the garden beyond. Modern, low-slung furniture features the same earthy color palette as the warm wood surfaces throughout.
Black and white bookshelf wallpaper creates a gorgeous accent wall in this modern bedroom. A large glass sliding door lets in natural light to illuminate the white bed covers topping the gray upholstered bed frame with faux fur blanket and charcoal throw pillow. A blue area rug adds a touch of color to the design.
The unique sliding glass door creates a boundary between the master bathroom and walk-in dressing room and still maximizes space in this remodeled space. Marine cage lights add to the industrial feel while the large mirror enhances how large the space feels while providing a place to dress and get ready for the day.
The sitting room in this Midcentury Modern home was designed to reflect the serenity of the pool area. The white walls, white furniture and lighted mirror wall work to reflect the natural light and view of the pool that floods the space through the windows and sliding glass doors that provide access to the outdoor entertainment space, while blue accent pieces highlight the blue of the pool and California sky.
Less is more a lot of times, and this is a prime example. The modern shape of a lounge chair and ottoman need no more than a sexy end table to hold their own in the corner of this master bedroom. The patterned carpet and soft blue-grey tones in the room are a reflection of the Atlantic waters swirling just outside the sliding glass doors.
Designing a room that's mostly or all white ensures you'll have a room that always feels streamlined and clutter-free. This modern eat-in kitchen features expansive counter space, hardwood floors and a cozy round kitchen table for four. The landscape just out the large sliding glass door brings nature and color into the room.
A tufted neutral bench at the foot of the bed matches the tufted headboard. Built in yellow lighting borders the textured accent wall creating a nice depth in the sleek, white room. Coral lamp stands, metallic wall mounts and a sea themed throw pillow create a modern tropical decor. A blue glass sliding door maximizes space.
