Color Creates Contrast and Separation Between Renovated Living Room and Kitchen
To help separate the kitchen and living room spaces, designers introduced a little bit of color to the kitchen design through the lower cabinets and kitchen island. This contrast creates a design separation while keeping the spaces open and physically connected.
After: Gold Guest Bedroom Makeover with Slipcovered Headboard
Gold is a regal choice that demands attention in this once-overlooked guest bedroom. Glass and antique brass side tables give the room a more modern look, and are topped with lamps from a discount home store selected by Atlanta designer Jennifer Foster. A streamlined slipcovered headboard offers flexibility for future makeovers.
Contrasting Patterns Add Texture to Casual Family Room
In the family room, designers used contrasting patterns to create a fun design. The paisley chair complements the red and green colors that anchor the room, while plaid curtains offset the plaid, giving the space lots of texture.
An oversized wing chair, covered in lush buttercream velvet upholstery, is the perfect spot to sink, snuggle and enjoy views of the sun as it sinks below the mountains. Two yellow-and-blue striped upholstered arm chairs flank the fireplace completing the sitting area in the HGTV Dream Home 2014.
Traditional White Kitchen With Wood Accents and Iron Chandelier
The three points of the frequently mentioned work triangle are the range, sink and refrigerator. Appliances can be broken up with the classic shapes; for example, the cooktop and wall ovens might be in different areas. Two sinks are important for a two-cook kitchen. This white kitchen is accented with a marble backsplash and a wooden countertop on the island highlighting the bar stools and exposed ceiling beams.
Much of this petite home office, designed by Sett Studio, is made from their signature material called Monotread. Sustainably created out of unutilized wood chips from mills, Monotread is used for the built-in desk, the flooring and the ceiling. Check out the fun ground level window, ideal for providing light as well as privacy.
Rugged woods from the exposed beams to hardwood floors bring a rustic quality to this bright, airy living space. A long buffet provides storage space for the dining area, as well a spot for serving food when entertaining.
Cottage Kitchen With Beadboard Ceiling and Green Cabinets
Two long runs of counter space give plenty of room in this cottage kitchen. Blue-painted antique corbels hold open shelving and support the peninsula overhang, bringing vintage-inspired whimsy to the space. Designer Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's "Sarah's Summer House," chose three different cabinet colors to create a dynamic color palette. She used natural materials and a lighthearted color for the backsplash, and the seeded glass cabinet doors bring an extra touch of softness.
Serene Living Room Boasts Indoor-Outdoor Functionality
A color palette of soft neutrals and cool blues creates a calm, serene atmosphere in this transitional living room. Large sliding glass doors open the room up to an outdoor seating area, providing endless options for indoor-outdoor entertaining.
If you buy canned goods in bulk, investing in a can rack will make your pantry much tidier. By storing cans on their sides, you can easily grab what you need while the next-in-line can rolls to the front. Home storage company Atlantic makes canned food racks in many different shapes and sizes, such as the Three Shelf Can Rack shown here.
