Craftsman-Style Foyer With Rich Wood Tones and Brick Wall
This Craftsman-style foyer uses simple architectural elements such as a brick wall and rich wood tones to invoke a warm first impression. A charming built-in houses a plant, highlighted by a wooden-carved entryway mirror. A custom-made Delos area rug adds visual interest to the space.
This light and bright foyer boasts cream colored walls paired with a mint green accent wall and red-brown hardwood floors. A contemporary stairway features a railing made with metal posts, cable wire and wood. A bench area in the entrance offers a spot for easy shoe removal.
Rehab Addict: Original Features Shine in Restored Study
The original mahogany wood and marble fireplace stand out against neutral gray walls in the restored study, as seen on the DIY Network's Rehab Addict. Personal belongings and found vintage objects are charming touches that warm the space.
This entryway boasts a gorgeous, modern look. Frosted glass walls create some privacy and allow the polished stone door to shine. Stained wood contrasts beautifully with the light concrete floor that steps down to the door.
This two-story foyer features a volcanic stone clad wall which serves as a backdrop to a live edge walnut shelf. Above, the planter is finished with the home's original tongue-and-groove wood that once was on the ceiling.
Coastal-style Dining Room with Exposed Beams and Nautical Chandelier
Nautical and tropical elements adorn this bright, open coastal kitchen. Reclaimed wood ceiling beams are reminiscent of driftwood washing up on shore, and the chandelier boasts heavy rope, as if from a sailboat. Horizontally paneled, white painted walls add to the seaside charm.
As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, a wall was removed between this kitchen and dining room, creating an airy, open-concept feel. Cool blue walls with white trim lend a modern vibe to the dining room, while the refinished wood floors preserve its original charm. An elegant chandelier casts soft light over the distressed wood table and chairs.
Contemporary Living Room with Bright Blue Accent Wall
A white mantel pops off of a bright blue accent wall in this airy, contemporary living room. Original wood flooring and exposed beams add a touch of natural charm. A cozy sectional provides ample seating and surrounds an eye-catching, trunk coffee table.
This enormous masculine closet boasts layers of sophisticated textures. Green felted wall covering lines the back of the closet storage with thin blue stripes that create the effect of a pinstripe suit. Neutral wood shelves and a rolling ladder add sleek charm while custom LED-lit closet rods make clothes easy to find.
It’s hard to imagine now, but this charming living space was once an unassuming commercial garage. To make the most of the compact, 1,260-square-foot space (including an upstairs loft area), Frazier Associates minimized the number of walls within. Exposed brick walls and concrete flooring on the first floor were retained and a new staircase, crafted of reclaimed wood and metal railing, was designed for access to the second floor. "Providing more natural light was the biggest design challenge," say the designers. "A new recessed patio was designed behind the historic garage doors to allow for more light on the first floor, as well as to create a front entrance and a small exterior seating area."
This apartment is in a beautiful landmarked building in the Wall Street area. During its renovation, the designers strived for a modern feel but also wanted to pay homage to the Old World charm of the original building elements: massive windows, ornate ironwork furnaces and dark wood floors. The previously enclosed kitchen was opened up and the materials chosen to highlight the feel of old New York: reclaimed brick on the walls, steel countertops and backsplash, even the pendants have the look of gas lights.

Master Bedroom Suite with Navy, Upholstered Headboard
This turn-of-the-century home is full of vintage charms, but the layout of the master bedroom was incredibly limiting. French doors used to be in the center of the entrance wall, which jammed up the room, causing all who entered to run straight into the bed. To solve this problem, the French doors have been moved to the corner of the room. The original hardwood floors and trim have been refinished and given a fresh coat of paint. A balcony was added to connect to a newly renovated private sitting room for the couple. A new navy, upholstered king sized bed was added to give the space a luxurious feel, as well as a luxurious area rug and bench at the foot of the bed.
Just a few steps through the front door and the space opens up into this expansive dining room. Part of the effortless charm of this home comes from original details such as historic moldings. The cool white of the walls and the warm wood tone of the floor create a stark backdrop that give the room’s other colors and elements ample room to shine. The dining room is a mix of rustic and industrial elements. To add some color to the mix, a large red print, left by the home’s previous tenant adds a pop of color to the neutral decor.
