This farmhouse overlooking the Snoqualmie River Valley in Washington now has the open, airy feel of a fire look-out tower in a national forest. The wall that previously stood between the kitchen and dining room were removed, which allowed the family to add a continuous ribbon of windows around the space. These windows allow tons of natural light into the space and help make it more sustainable. As a tribute to the beautiful forest around them, the family had a custom kitchen island crafted specifically for this space.
Custom built-in shelving is perfect for housing the homeowners' books, artwork and accessories. Gray carpet with a diamond print grounds the space, while comfortable orange chairs with a graphic pattern surround a contemporary coffee table.
This traditional craftsman home boasts a spacious deck area with medium brown wood planks and a curved white railing. A white pergola is positioned over a black metal dining set, providing a comfortable spot for enjoying the outdoors.
Adding a single piece of original artwork is always a great way to start (or complete) a room design, and can take a family room from basic to stunning in the time it takes you to hang a picture. To highlight the unique artwork, keep other wall art to a minimum, and paint the walls white or another neutral hue to provide a backdrop for the art.
The ultimate girl's room, this bedroom features floral wallpaper in gray, pink and green that sets the tone for the color scheme. Black is a lovely contrast that adds drama to the space and makes the room feel more sophisticated for a teen girl.
A lone gray accent wall breaks up the white walls and windows in this stylish, modern California living room, bringing warmth to a cozy seating area. An Eames lounge chair and ottoman are placed to take advantage of the hilltop view, and colorful pillows and accent tables add punch to the space.
Contemporary Living Room Features Sleek Fireplace and Blue Accents
Hardwood floors, additional lighting and a fresh coat of paint were added to the living room renovation of this Atlanta home featured on HGTV's Property Brothers. The brick fireplace was replaced by a contemporary surround and the room decorated with neutral contemporary furniture for an updated look.
Contemporary Kitchen with Light-colored Wood Cabinets and Kitchen Island
Light-colored wood cabinets are a wonderful way to keep a kitchen bright -- especially when there's not much natural light. Here, the countertops and floors are also a neutral hue, adding to the open feeling of the space.
Full Outdoor Kitchen on Modern Rooftop With Garden
This spacious rooftop deck features a full outdoor kitchen making it ideal for entertaining on warm evenings. A container garden with blooming flowers and trees is a lovely natural touch in the clean, modern space.
Just off of the grand main staircase sits a luxurious great room, complete with hand-hewn walnut flooring that continues over to the adjacent gourmet kitchen. The large stone fireplace extends from floor to ceiling, while two wicker sofas and matching ottomans boast neutral cushions. Blue throw pillows add a pop of color.
