‘The President’ Clematis
Romance blooms when ‘The President’ opens its deep purple blossoms. Expect the first flush of flowers in late spring to early summer, followed by a second blooming with smaller flowers in early autumn. Clematis with classic flower forms like ‘The President’ grow best in full sun to part shade. Prune in late winter or early spring, cutting vines back to 6 to 9 inches tall. Place cuts just above a pair of strong buds. Clematis grows well on a pergola, but flowers may unfurl across the top of the structure, out of sight. Instead, try planting clematis on an arch or fence so you can see the blooms. Deer- and rabbit-resistant plants grow 8 to 12 feet tall by 3 to 4 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 4-8.
Industrial Dining Room With Bubble Chandelier
Meals in this simple, refined dining room come with a view. The delicate, bubble-shaped chandelier is a nice foil to the heavier weight of the wood beam ceiling.
This contemporary playroom brings the outdoors in for a New York City kid, harnessing varying textures and bold colors to create a whimsical, fun-filled space. Colorful artwork gives a partial wall major punch.
A built-in banquette with easy-to-clean striped fabric is the perfect kid-friendly choice for a cozy breakfast area. Drawers underneath provide extra storage, and a beaded chandelier makes for a striking focal point.
Designer Leanne Ford keeps this country kitchen feeling sophisticated with a striking dark gray and white color palette, accented by stainless steel lights and appliances, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
Dark cabinetry and a three-sided vanity give weight to this spacious, elegant master bathroom. White marble with gray veining continues from the floor onto the tub surround and into the walk-in shower. A chevron-patterned stool provides a comfortable spot at the double vanity.
Opposite the sofa, two sapphire blue armchairs denote a more formal sitting area for entertaining guests. When paired with a copper side table and high-gloss pillows, the gems make an especially chic statement.
These homeowners needed a fun space that both their little boys and little girl could play and feel welcome in, so designers created a space full of bold, gender neutral colors and a design that focused on gender neutral, geometric shapes. With plenty of storage and toys for boys and girls hanging on the wall, this playroom is perfect for the pair of brothers, their sister and their parents to enjoy.
Pappas Miron Design loved the terrazzo fireplace so much they decided to integrate it into the room’s eclectic decorations. The team pulled inspiration from a mix of periods to create “Palazzo Terazzo,” a luxurious sitting room. A cream boucle on the ’70s styled custom-sofa paired with the tufted antique lounge chair creates a calming and beautiful space.
