Dining Room With Bold Turquoise Rug & Purple Tufted End Chairs
A wallpaper accent wall adds a decorative pattern to the elegant look of this transitional dining room. A large turquoise rug grounds the dining table set for eight. The blue and deep purple stripes on the curtains tie in the rug and the purple tufted chairs at the end of the table. The long dining table fills the shape of the room well and is matched with the rectangular shape of the light fixtures.
Dark hardwood flooring runs from the kitchen, with a large marble island and seating for six guests, to the blue, transitional living room. The white painted fireplace features a floating, wooden mantel and is the focal point in the space, surrounded with leather chairs and a comfy sofa positioned for family gatherings.
Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
Midcentury Ranch Home Atop Grassy Hill With Stone Slabs
This midcentury ranch home sits on top of a hill, thus minimizing the view of structural roof items that would normally be visible. A large expanse of grass is broken up by large stones as well as a walkway made from large stone slabs.
The newly renovated home ultimately met all the criteria of homeowners Bill and Jody, including a wonderful and welcoming front porch that's large enough to accommodate a dining table and swinging porch bed.
