Architecture and interior design create a visual connection between modern form and traditional comfort in this sleek contemporary kitchen. Mosaic tile adds shimmer to the neutral space while large windows offer mountain views.
This updated modern beach home features a mix of cedar and stucco siding. The new mahogany walkway leading to the pool continues into the house to provide access and a direct visual connection to the pool.
To create a strong visual and physical connection to the interior space of the poolhouse, designers centered the pool in front of the space, drawing a direct visual connection from the interior of the poolhouse to the view of the ocean.
An artist wanted a space that would call her to create. The studio is tucked in between existing trees in close proximity to the main house providing a visual connection to her family that can easily be broken and re-established.
In this dining room, the large black cabinet looks striking and is home to all the barware. Its carved front is a visual connection with the wood-carved artwork from Thailand, a favorite destination of the homeowners. The rug is by Joanna Gaines for Loloi.
Keeping personal connection in the design, the homeowner wanted to incorporate the dining table and chairs she had inherited from her grandmother. The chairs were recovered in a warm, visually-textured fabric selected to harmonize with the open-plan living-dining area. The set is supported with a custom-sized wool rug below and a “sculptural luminary” above.
To visually connect the HGTV Dream Home 2015 master suite, each room plays off of the colors and fabrics of the last space. “The bathroom ceiling and the hall and the master bathroom are the same color, and we used the same sisal in the bathroom as the rug in the hallway,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum. “There’s really a connection of feel and color palette. It’s very serene and peaceful, so you have the same experience in all rooms in this part of the house.”
