The 13-foot kitchen island features brilliant white quartz countertops and opens up to the pub-style dining room. A muted gray-green wall color pairs nicely with the reclaimed wood on the face of the island and the wood-wrapped beams. The runner is actually porcelain tile laid flush with the hardwood floors, creating a unique visual accent.
An impressive limestone stove hood mimics the gothic style of the fireplace mantel and has a strong presence in this transitional kitchen. Natural light entering from both sides of the room prevent the stonework from weighing down the space. A dining area near the cooktop provides front-row seating for interested on-lookers during meal prep.
Decorated solely in shades of white, event designer Camille Styles uses the tone-on-tone style in this dining room to create a holiday soiree which blends timeless elegance with a wintry aesthetic. The key to creating an all-white tablescape that's not flat or sterile is to layer different shades along with a mix of textures and metallic accents.
Textured tile, furniture-style cabinetry and a coffered ceiling team up to add dimension and interest to this traditional, oceanside kitchen. The room's open concept gives it a sweeping view over the dining room, living area, sunroom and broad back deck. Hardwood floors add warmth to the room, while an overall white palette gives it a casual and calm feel. A contrasting stain on the island was chosen to customize the space, ground the kitchen and add to its architectural interest.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, two cramped and dated rooms were transformed into a gorgeous open plan kitchen, dining and living area. A functional kitchen island replaced an unnecessary dividing wall and a crumbling brick fireplace was repaired and painted a pretty neutral hue. An abundance of gorgeous natural light now highlights the charming, vintage cottage-style decor.
Lovely is the word for this remodeled Cape Cod home, designed by TriplePoint Design Build, as you step from the front door into the comfort and elegance of the decor. The walls were painted a muted taupe to allow the color and texture of the the furnishings to dominate. This room accommodates dining and living with dedicated spaces of similar design styles.
This kitchen employs simplicity and clean lines to achieve a sleek and classic style. Tubular cabinet and appliance hardware combined with a rectangular stained glass backsplash enforce strong horizontal elements in the design. A pass-through was created between the kitchen and dining room, and the sink window was bumped out, making the smaller space seem more open.
Texture and color keep the eye roaming in the HGTV Dream Home 2010 home office, where a dining table doubles as a work-station. A wall of industrial-style étagères provide for both art display and storage. Reclaimed teak-wood sculptures placed atop lacquered display pedestals connect the room to outdoor spaces.
Soon after purchasing their home, the homeowners were ready to redesign the entertaining hub of the home. A custom-designed drop ceiling with bubble pendant chandelier defines the new dining room, which pairs a chic woodgrain table with sleek black chairs. Anchored at the end of the living space is the wet bar and frameless glass wine room, each outlined with bookmatched wood walls and ceilings. The end result is a series of spaces that feature the homeowners' sophisticated style and taste.
As rough-hewn and industrial as some loft spaces can be, there’s still ample opportunity to introduce spaces rich in refined style, as designer Hannah Crowell did in this eclectic dining room. “This was a new build that I wanted to give depth and character, so I chose a charcoal grey that pulled a slight bit of purple. I wanted to mix modern pieces (the Wegner chairs) with a farm table and Bryan Nash Gill prints. The Patterson Flynn and Martin rug was custom and took us 6 months to make but it pulled everything together perfectly.”
Off to one side of the dining room, Nana Yaa’s favorite form of transportation makes its own colorful contribution to the decor. This simple yet chic vignette is completed with the inclusion of an African mask hanging on the wall. Though minimalist, Nana Yaa’s style includes a lot of art, which the fashion designer often uses as an ode to her culture, a memento of places she’s been or a reminder of old friends.
