The shelves and frames for the custom barn doors in this kitchen have been stained to match the cabinets and the base for the kitchen island. The natural color of the wood is infused with a hint of charcoal to coordinate these details with the cabinets and the gray and white tile floor and wall. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
Dark-stained molding and door casing frame the clever pocket doorway. Rich orange walls have an almost velvety look. The shelving was configured to extend above the double doors and provide perfect display space for a collection of vintage globes.
A wood framed glass door and a large sliding glass door offering multiple exits out to a spacious patio that offers spectacular views. Metal balcony railing combines with a gray stained, wood deck for a sleek and contemporary look.
This streamlined kitchen creates a dynamic play of vertical and horizontal lines. The narrow workspace and long counters are juxtaposed with the pendant lights, stained glass window frame and bars of the nearby door.
A dramatic archway composed of wood slats and iron frame blend beautifully with a vibrant stained glass door in this front entry. Painted concrete containers sunken into the ground create a pretty space for planting while leveling out a sloped walkway.
This modern farmhouse maintains the same color palette on its interior and exterior, a soothing gray touched with brown and white accents. Rustic touches like a barn-style garage door and wood-framed wire fence blend with more modern elements to create an intriguing design mix.
Not every home is blessed with the grand volumes of a loft space, but you can use space-saving tricks to make rooms feel more expansive, as designers Jamie Hamilton and Greer Nelson of Oliver Simon Design did in this project. “We loved the idea of an antique map in this dining room because it was a small space but we still wanted it to be bright and interesting. Not losing valuable space to framed art on the walls meant that every inch was used in the smartest way possible. The custom barn door was also a space saver, and a bright hit of color adds good bang for the buck.”
