Butcher Shop Meat Counter and Built In Wood Shelving
A glass cover shows off the meats in this stylish butcher shop. A wood base to the cases matches the wood walls throughout the shop. Built in shelves in varying sizes creates space for storage and decorative display.
Clean white walls are a great place to show off framed original artwork in this contemporary living space with an open floor plan. A custom-made cabinet is topped with a glass display case filled with even more artwork creating a one-of-a-kind space.
A marble-top kitchen island sits in a beautiful, spacious mint green kitchen. Gas lamps and a glass display case add a traditional feel while stainless steel appliances give the space a more contemporary feel.
Contemporary Home Bar With Custom Back-Lit Shot Glass Storage, Tall Barstools and Stone Flooring
This custom crafted shot glass display case adds a beautifully unique functional element to this home bar. The back lighting adds a cool light element to the warm look of the space. Stone flooring adds a textural element to the room below the tall, contemporary barstools and small, sleek bar.
Glossy dark brown handrails and balusters contrast against the rustic hardwood floors in this eclectic foyer. Taking advantage of every nook, the hallway is turned into a cozy seating area with chic glass cases for displaying favorite accessories.
All-White Contemporary Apartment With Personal Art Gallery
A custom wood and glass cabinet doubles as a display case in this art-filled, contemporary living space. A framed, original Andy Warhol print is a stunning complement to the piece and creates the feel of a personal art gallery.
Ultra-Modern Bathroom With Clear Glass Walls & Freestanding Tub
Like the master bedroom, the master bath is designed to provide a virtual outdoor experience, creating the impression that the space is open to the outside. The seamless glass windows that form the outer walls are made of Starfire glass, a highly specialized glass that is actually clearer than ordinary glass and typically reserved for such purposes as building jewelry display cases and high-end aquariums. The cost of upgrading from clear glass to Starfire glass was more than $1 million. The master bath's freestanding tub cost more than $20,000, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
Traditional Kitchen With White Cabinetry and Pantry
Two wall cabinets for dish and glass storage are balanced on either side of the casement windows. A combined pantry and display storage space is located on the back wall behind the island areas. The two-tone cabinetry is complemented by Blue Celeste marble tops and iridescent glass tile backsplash. A spectacular ocean view serves as the perfect backdrop for this breathtaking kitchen. The room is completed with a wood-paneled ceiling and a large kitchen island.
The white walls and hardwood floor in this hallway are decorated with a contemporary art display. A thin gold table covers a large crystal formation and supports a circular flower vase. Pink, orange, purple and neutral diamond cut-outs in direction changing lines are mounted in glass cases next to a yellow panel with black words and numbers.
More Modern Additions Blend Into Updated Kitchen to Keep it True to the Integrity of This Historic Home
In this Tudor kitchen, designers aded aspects that would modernize the space, while make sure the new design kept true to the integrity of the historic Tudor home. The walls are painted a light yellow color that makes the space bright, while the white cabinets and black soapstone countertops help to create a unique contrast. The upper cabinets are glass paneled, creating a more modern display case, while the lower cabinets are updated and have plenty of room for storage. Wood panels cover the kitchen's major appliances to help them seamlessly blend in with the design and create a sophisticated space full of all the modern comforts with plenty of traditional charm.
“The trick to tackling a huge room like this is to divide it up into zones and that's just what this design trio does so well,” says designer Candice Olson. “There is an area to take in the view; a sprawling wall shelf that doubles as both display and seating; (great for those big LA parties); and a main conversation grouping that floats in front of the fireplace. I think the wall art is the strongest element in this space. Large tree-motif panels suit the grand scale of the space, as does the ingenious bubble-wrap wall hanging backed with a very current fretwork graphic — someone’s going to Design Heaven for that move. And can we talk about the pink ducks?! The 3-D element of these wooden sculptures animates the massive fireplace wall but this team doesn’t stop there. A quart of neon-pink paint has these ducks kicking sand in the feathered faces of their pink flamingo cousins. It’s this touch of the unexpected that prevents a serious room like this from looking too somber and that can make a good design a great one. As strong as the wall art is, I feel the decorative elements placed along the wall shelves and mantel are suffering from a case of "Honey, I shrunk the accessories." Big rooms need big accessories — lamps, candlesticks or pedestals, ceramics and mirrors — all large-scaled to suit. I would have opted for a huge, free-form, wood coffee table. Glass tends to visually disappear and is a better choice to help keep the feeling open and uncluttered in small spaces.”
