Dark Furniture and Geometric Wall Design in Chef's Kitchen
Thanks to the sliding glass doors that lead out onto the patio and to the pool, this kitchen boasts lots of natural light. That light is complimented by the dark furniture in the dining area, including a large dining table that seats the family comfortably and the banquette seating at the back of the room. The contemporary design of the space keeps ornamentation to a minimum, but the family has chosen to add a geometric wall design that spruces up the space and adds a touch of flair to their otherwise neutral kitchen walls.
Dark Subway Tile Grout, Heavy Wood Beams Offer Depth to White Kitchen Design
White subway tile with dark grout and heavy wood beams trimming a vaulted ceiling offer depth to the design of this sunny white kitchen. Walls of windows overlook this home's wooded property and the adjacent lake, and the kitchen includes professional-grade appliances for the serious home chef.
This inviting, galley-style kitchen is a farmhouse design with its wood cabinetry and countrified accessories. The green walls, orange door and light oak floor contrast nicely with the darker wood of the furniture and cabinets.
This gorgeous Mediterranean-style kitchen was designed with cooking in mind. The custom range hood in dark hardwood complements the neutral subway tile backsplash and granite countertop. A gas range sits below a wall-mounted pot-filler to speed up prep time for the home chef.
Transitional Open Design Living Space With Connected Neutral Kitchen, Living Room and Dining Room
A white support beam provides a simple room separation in the open design of this home. Hardwood floor and white walls create a seamless connection between the rooms. Nailhead trim on the living room stools, kitchen bar stools and dining room chairs creates a cohesive element throughout the space. Darker wood furniture pieces add a warm tone to the calming, light neutrals in the design.
The bright, sunshine yellow of the remodeled Tudor kitchen is carried through to the dining room that is directly adjacent to it. To make the space more open, designer removed the wall separating the two spaces, creating a clear line of sight from one space into another. As a nod to the historic home's Tudor style, designers kept the exposed beams on the ceiling of the dining room, and brought in dark wood furniture to complete the design.
Chic, Contemporary Living Room From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah surprised her clients with a bonus living room makeover to complement the newly renovated kitchen and dining room. Maintaining the chic and simple modern design style of the rest of the main floor, Sarah accented the rich dark hardwood floors with gray mid-century modern furniture, glam gold curtains and a fun faux cowhide rug. A large window was cut into the wall between the living room and kitchen to create an open feel for easy entertaining.
