Cozy Green Breakfast Nook From HGTV Dream Home 2009
Just steps from the gourmet kitchen and overlooking the lush courtyard, the breakfast nook in the HGTV Dream Home 2009 creates a cozy, inviting space, making it the perfect spot to gather with family or friends, read the morning paper or fuel up with a cup of coffee before the work day. The bamboo window shades soften the space and add a touch of texture.
The green walls of this family room offer the perfect backdrop for a family's favorite art work. Comfortable gray couches, ample throw pillows with mismatched patterns and colors and a rustic wooden coffee table enhance the room's cozy ambiance.
John and Anthony, from America's Most Desperate Kitchen, took a small, outdated kitchen and opened it into the living room to create an open, contemporary space that is perfect for cooking, dining and entertaining.
Traditional Small Kitchen with Island, Dining Table and Artwork
Adding a small tabletop atrium to your kitchen can give it an organic, earthy feel. In this kitchen, designers with homebuilder Lennar carry the vibe through the room with a textured tray on the console and earth-toned pastas in glass containers on the back counter.
Modern White Kitchen with Stainless Steel Appliances
Borrow a couple of quick and easy ways to infuse style from this high-end designer kitchen in Florida’s Alys Beach community. Create your own cruet set with oils, salt and pepper and other often-used ingredients using pretty bottles and jars, and display them within arm’s reach on a beautiful cutting board. Then, fill an otherwise unused corner with a favorite painting or small photograph.
A chalkboard wall is a great way to give that farmhouse feel, and it's a budget-friendly way to have interchangeable artwork, says Texas designer Janna Allbritton with Yellow Prairie Interior Design. If your penmanship isn’t perfect use a stencil. A pro tip is to use a level to keep lists and special messages straight, she adds.
On the lake side of this newly renovated home, designers incorporated a patio into the home's entertainment space. The large back patio space includes a dining table with an umbrella, making the space usable even on sunny and drizzly days, as well as a lounge area with a view of the lake. Leading off from the patio, a landscaped walkway gives the homeowners safe passage to the lake below.
Kitchen With Large Center Island and Industrial Pendant Lights
The newly configured kitchen has a large center island, crisp white cabinetry with contrasting black hardware, new stainless steel appliances and custom vent hood. Joanna Gaines found vintage wooden corbels at a local salvage shop for the perfect finishing touch.
Mid-Century Modern Kitchen With Bold Black-And-White Tiles
Bold black-and-white tiles stretch from the sleek marble countertops to the ceiling in this mid-century modern kitchen. Walnut cabinets give the island warmth while complimenting the custom made range hood.
Three studded barstools sit at the quartz waterfall island in this modern, bold kitchen. Two brass pendant lights add flair to the space paired with brass hardware on the white kitchen cabinets and a counter-to-ceiling navy backsplash.
The kitchen was reconfigured to be open and light, with pale wood floors and dark-framed windows that highlight the views. Behind the range, a graphic pattern nods to the global influences used throughout the home.
