Josh Swanson is mixing his passions, buying flowers that match the colors of his favorite NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings. He selected yellow mums, and white and purple pansies. Marigolds are the most popular annuals among millennial organic gardeners (24 percent), followed by pansies, geraniums, zinnias and impatiens (13 percent each), according to The Home Depot 2015 Fall Gardening Survey.
This sleek and spacious kitchen features white limestone floors paired with black cabinets and neutral countertops. A mosaic tile gray backsplash adds a bit of texture to the space and continues over to the wall that frames a large stainless steel refrigerator. A skylight provides a touch of natural light.
Color galore! The blues of the ocean and greens of grass make this eclectic kidtastic living room come alive. Vibrant modern art and boldly printed rug create a whimsical space. The comfy sofa is chock-full of patterned pillows that can change with the seasons.
A double vanity with a seating area creates a hotel-like atmosphere in this spacious bathroom. A modern bathtub and glass-encased shower keep things feeling fresh, while large framed mirrors above the vanity enhance the spacious quality of the room.
Mediterranean Outdoor Space with Arches, Beamed Ceiling and Stone Floors
Wooden ceiling beams and handmade copper lanterns break up the concrete facade in the al fresco living spaces. One-of-a-kind pieces, such as tree trunk bases, avoid the matchy-matchy look and add unexpected elements. Floor inlays of grey shell stone add texture and ground the furniture.
Clean white walls and a vaulted ceiling give this living room a spacious and airy look. On either side of the fireplace, two woven chairs with faux-fur throws become stylish seats for guests. The real star of the space, though, is the blue velvet sofa, which ties the eclectic design together.
Instead of springing for a built-in island, consider a freestanding one made from recycled materials. Case in point: the Industrial Recycled High Bench Table, shown in Shabby Chic White, $1,999, designed by Will Marx for GHIFY. Handmade in Brisbane, Australia, of native Australian timber, the design was inspired by the architecture of Queensland. Says GHIFY, “This island is one of our signature designs, which has been hugely popular as a kitchen island for added counter space, as a high bench dining table for the eat-in kitchen and as a workbench/desk. It is a timeless industrial recycled styled table that can be custom-built to any size, color or finish. Each table comes with a 10-year warranty.”
Warm woods on the vanity and mirror frame contrast nicely with the cool Carrara marble countertop and flooring in this graceful, minimal bathroom. Brass finishes on the lighting and hardware likewise add warmth to the space.
Piles of small toys and picture books can overtake a child’s bedroom quickly, so it helps to create a home for these items. Free up floor space by using hanging wall organizers with pockets to sort and store thin and small-sized toys. Group the pieces according to type, so finding a favorite toy becomes an easier process.
White Bathroom Walls Reflect Natural Light in Bathroom
To create a modern, elegant space, designers replaced the dark, traditional colors with a bright, neutral color palette. The white walls and cabinet reflect the natural light in the space, making it clean and bright. To help the modern style, designers installed a gray and white marble countertop to complete the space.
