It's amazing to think that this contemporary outdoor space was once a forgotten unused area. The design firm, A Blade of Grass, kept some existing materials, including the wood decking. The existing fence was updated with horizontal cedar cladding, which provided a clean, uniform backdrop. Garden stools also are an affordable, bold accent for a patio.
To create this simple and colorful living space, "HGTV Star" Boris Eckey found inspiration in the printed fabric of the chairs and pillows. The pattern represents a contemporary interpretation of a kimono fabric, inspiring all the color selections of the room.
This upstairs living area overlooks the lower floor from glass walls, making the smaller space feel spacious and open. Grainy gray fabric on the sofa and armless chair create a lovely textural look to offset the smooth white walls and hardwood flooring. A modern square coffee table features a solid black base with a glass tabletop.
A coffee table with swiveling tops adds versatility and function in this modern living space built for entertaining. Glass tabletops visually open up the space and connect with the wall-length windows. A white leather sofa offers stylish seating.
Use three different objects in the same color, in this case white, which saves you time and money instead of trying to find a matching set. Using moss in a bowl is inexpensive, long-lasting and elegant update.
This open contemporary great room sitting area features a glass-top cofee table with river-rock base, a neutral woven area rug and a white shiplap ceiling with recessed lighting. The space also includes a sofa with contemporary lamp and end table.
Bolster the seating with pillows bearing favorite locations and phrases. You can take a linen pillow and use stencil and spray paint to add the name of your town or home country, or anything you want, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta.
