A stunning great room that needed to be visually grounded in order for it to feel at all warm and welcoming. The ceilings are 20' high and it is a very long room between the kitchen and living area. The fireplace is the major focal point by using stripes of black cement tiles mixed with wood that echoes the color of the oiled oak floors. From there it was easy to keep the major pieces neutral and to add pops of color and metallics with the accessories.
To keep the high-contrast look of the dark blue and the bright white consistent throughout the bedroom, its existing plantation shutters were kept white to tie together the chunky molding as well as the white seen in the FLOR carpet tiles. Plantation shutters are a great way to add privacy and architectural interest to a room.
This 1926 Spanish Colonial Revival residence was rehabilitated and an addition added to create livable family areas, master bedroom suite, better indoor-outdoor living and an artist’s studio. To reinforce the Spanish Colonial design style, deep archways, Malibu tile, wrought iron and stain glass details are incorporated. The additions were placed on the back of the home to maintain the home's historic character curb appeal.
As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens, designers wanted to create a space with the feel of an old farmhouse, but still give the homeowners all the modern amenities, so they blended old textures, such as the exposed brick, wainscoting and large tile floors, with new, stainless steel appliances and modern cabinets and countertops.
Tile can not only be beautiful, it can be functional as well. Here designer Becky Sue Becker uses natural stone in warm tones to create a single bathing space out of two. Connecting the shower and bath with one streamlined look creates the idea that it is its own defined oasis in a spacious master bath.
This farmhouse inspired kitchen is full of rustic and vintage detail. From the gold metal and tin pendant light to the ornate shelf brackets that match the hood range this kitchen is full of charming allure. The deep well sink is accented by the large kitchen window and wood grain tile backsplash surround with mosaic detail.
The Kitchen Cousins liked the look and color of the old kitchen cabintes in the Mai home. But the kitchen needed to pop and come alive. The Kitchen Cousins added sky blue retro looking appliances by The Big Chill to give the kitchen the edge and look that it needed. They also got rid of the old tile on the walls, and the old wallpaper on the ceiling. The kitchen is now brighter and more colorful than the original and has a hip new look.
The elements of this restaurant perfectly blend together to make customers feel as if they are spending the day at the beach. The blue and white mosaic tile floor bring out the vibrant blue of the ocean, which reflects off the white walls and white marble bar, creating the illusion of sand and sea. Natural light pours into the space from a large door and two large windows, making the space feel bright and warm. Lastly, the octopus that is suspended from the ceiling put the finishing touch on the restaurant's oceanic ambiance.
The warm tones and finishes in this craftsman style kitchen create a welcoming design. A wood door refrigerator and freezer blend beautifully into the cabinetry. A long island is perfect for in-kitchen eating on the leather barstools with nailhead trim finish. Light, neutral marble floor tile and light walls keep the room bright.
Fixer Upper Hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines turned the once disastrous room into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The old drop ceiling was removed, adding height to the room, and a wooden support beam was added. A subway tile backsplash, floating wood shelves and stainless steel appliances were also installed. Client Clint Harper added the finishing touches to the kitchen by making a beautiful island and vent hood out of reclaimed wood, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
This kitchen by designer Mark Dutka in his own home near the Northern California coast was designed to reflect the colors of the local sky, sand and forests. A gorgeous sky blue accent wall gives depth to this small, open-plan modern kitchen. Wood beam ceilings and saltillo tile floors offer a nature-inspired contrast to the metal and gray. Halogen pendant lights suspended from an overhead support above the counter peninsula offer a creative lighting solution.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, the previously drab and closed in, this kitchen has been completely renovated and revived into a stylish, functional space. To open up the kitchen, Chip removed a large beam and fireplace, opening the kitchen into the living room, then Joanna swathed the kitchen in white, creating a bright, classic design. To provide functionality, a custom island was installed, giving the family more prep space and seating, and the addition of new appliances and a subway tile backsplash gives the space a little extra pizzaz.
Designer Kelli Kaufer created this one-of-a-kind backsplash using her client’s prized collection of buttons (plus a few extras bought at garage sales and crafts stores). “I used a double-sided sticky mat,” she says. “Apply the mat to the wall and start placing the buttons. You may want to use the back side of the buttons as there are fewer ridges. Once the buttons are in place, apply a non-sanded grout just like you would grout normal tile. This will help hold the buttons in place.”
Embrace shiplap, the wide wooden boards that have historically been used to construct barns and older homes and a design favorite of HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” stars Chip and Joanna Gaines. Allison Worley, senior designer at Atlanta's Haven Design Works, installed shiplap in her bathroom and painted it in Sherwin-Williams Agreeable Gray. Shiplap can be done as an accent wall or installed along the entire room. Haven Design Works owner Donna Mathis adds that putting shiplap or tile just behind a vanity mirror can change the whole look of a bathroom.
Working from the architectural plans for a yet to be constructed new home, the designer allocated space for the bedroom, large walk-in closet, and also created the footprint for the en suite bathroom. Stacked wall storage units for paper products are arranged to mimic architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s stacked repetition detail. Flush shower ceiling tile and the wood ceiling alignment created an uninterrupted clean look.
After passing through the courtyard doors, you are welcomed by dual fountain features that frame the walkway and provide a tranquil feeling upon entry into this private space.
Finding the right glass waterline tile for fountain and spa was difficult since we wanted it to be complementary to the antique brick and terra cotta paving colors, but the Bamboo Blend (Weave Series from Walker Zanger) provide the right balance of color, while also providing enough of a highlight.
The Gaspar's new kitchen has been completely transformed with new cabinetry, appliances, and wood flooring. A modern black subway tile backsplash, a wood-framed vent hood, granite countertops and a functional kitchen island were installed. The outdated wallpaper was replaced with light blue/gray paint. The doorway between the kitchen and dining room is now wider, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
A sleek, sharp island fills the floor space in this shining midcentury modern kitchen. Mustard yellow bar chairs add a retro influence and counter the bright finishes of the walls and cabinetry. Gray and white tile create a full wall backsplash pattern behind floating shelves and a stainless steel range hood. Glass pendant lights bring extra light to solidify the bright finish.
