The homeowners wanted an open, airy space with modern and rustic touches, so designers brought in a modern take on the farmhouse table and a matching bench. On the other side of the table, three modern chairs add seating to the table bathed in natural light. For a bit of fun, designers had a turquoise accent wall painted and some fun art hung on it.
Jackson Paige Interiors designed this Brentwood home with a contemporary approach but added touches of coastal style throughout the space. This family room, for example, features a soft turquoise wallpaper as an accent wall, complementary sofa pillows, along with a coffee table, end table and art that inspire one to "hit the beach." Especially fetching are the low-to-the-ground occasional chairs that have a cottage-style aesthetic.
What was once a bedroom in a Charleston style home is now a chic, teal dressing room/closet, thanks to Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ. A cheery turquoise color was chosen for the built-ins and balanced with a luxurious leopard print carpet. Other glamorous touches include a gorgeous crystal and hemp chandelier, sparkling drawer hardware, an upholstered fabric wall behind the glass shoe shelves and a custom-made full-length mirror.
Designer Vanessa DeLeon used plush fabrics and deep gray accent pieces to put an elegant spin on this complete home remodel. The eclectic teal and black dining room features an over-dyed turquoise rug from Creative Touch in Secaucus, N.J., while the table hails from Brooklyn-based artisan woodworker Palo Samko. The neutral walls are complemented by a faux-painted black and gray ceiling and black leather chairs around a rustic hardwood dining table with mismatched candle holders and two brass pendant lights.
Usually, when you think windows, you don't think decoration, but this window has become the focal point of this space. The two slender mirrors add plenty of natural light to the space, which is reflected off of the small, starburst mirror in the center. A green plant sits in front or each windows to add a touch of nature, while fresh pink flowers in a turquoise vase give the window a little splash of color.
For a family home in Houston, the designers of Laura U Interior Design created a comfortable seating area just off the kitchen. The team used color and accessories to create a cohesive look throughout the wide open area. “While the majority of the color palette is neutral, we weave a lively turquoise through each space: pillows and an area rug in the family, bar stool frames in the kitchen, and a show-stopping chandelier in the breakfast space,” they explain. “The entire space is further unified through the window treatments which are a combination of Hunter Douglas Silhouette shades and custom drapery with a turquoise band on the leading edge. A cheerful yellow and just a dash of orange set off the color scheme while touches of gold and a natural wood (teak root table and driftwood at the island) add eclectic charm.”
It's the details that really pull a space together, and for this contemporary living room, that's where the personality lies. The gray sofas provide a neutral backdrop for the multicolor pillows and turquoise vases that help to pull the natural light in from the large windows. Another unique touch added to the space is the abstract artwork hanging behind the striped bench. The muted colors in the artwork complement the other colors in the space, tying it all together and making this living room a bright, welcoming place to relax.
As seen on HGTV Design Star, this bedroom was upgraded to a gray contemporary theme. The matching twin beds feature a patterned comforter, slanted gray corner headboard, and turquoise throw blanket for a touch of color. The window seat displays various gray, black and white throw pillows. The room's review on the show stated, "J and Doug have trouble making decisions together from the very beginning, and the result is a poorly executed room. J's headboards are sloppy, leaving judge Genevieve Gorder to say, 'If you're not going to do it well, don't do it.'"
