A few walls and doors were reconfigured to create an enclosed media room in the basement. An open basement plan was slightly reconfigured with the help of an engineer, and the final product is a cozy media room with seating for 12.
With the location of the home office next to the main entry hall, designer Courtney Blaymore opted to include a custom designed wall partition in order to create an element of privacy. Just beyond the screen, two white office chairs are positioned in front of a white desk with a gray accent wall.
The back of a floating wall and headboard offers storage for books, media and personal accessories in this neutral bedroom. Asian-style shoji screens on sliding door panels conceal items for a cleaner look.
Frame a small patio nicely with a lattice grill screen, which designers have custom made, but can be a DIY project. This screen project uses 4x4-foot posts to serve as an outdoor wall, define patio space and help hide plastic storage bins.
A hip roof design can still accommodate ceiling fans, such as these fans hanging from a cedar ceiling designed by Innovative Construction. The color of the fans matches the wicker furniture and contrasts with the lighter ceiling and walls.
Panels from an 18th century French screen hang on the wall as a focal point in this beautiful, neutral traditional dining room. A long neutral curtain with a leaf border design hangs in front of glass French doors allowing outdoor access. Natural light from the doors and above windows illuminate the soft details of the room and dark wooden dining table.
Filtered through a thin gold curtain, this dining area is able to receive some natural light from the large living room windows. The screen divides the rooms without sacrificing the open floor plan. A dark dining table with an interesting glass top filled with rocks sits beneath a rectangular candle chandelier. The table, a stone bench seat and ornate wood dining chairs provide contrast to the light yellow wall and create an intimate dining area.
A custom floor-to-ceiling screen with a geometric pattern camouflages the nearby stairway and creates a more intimate setting for this living room. A soft peach wall color, a bold floral rug and colorful accent pillows add lively contrast to the simple white sofa.
This glass screened playroom leads directly into the airy living room in this modern loft. Pint-sized furniture in primary colors is perfectly sized for children while the glass walls make it easy for parents to keep an eye on things from the other room.
This guest bedroom features a sleek gray and white color palette. A patterned folding screen behind the bed's headboard breaks up the flat panels of the walls and softens the crisp lines of the furniture.
This side view of the architectural screen wall with the vertical slats of ebonized wood shows the dining room on the left side and the stairwell on the right. “It makes the space feel bigger,” says build manager Dan Faires.
Black bookshelves contrast against the white brick fireplace and provide a display for the homeowners' books and accessories. The wall above the fireplace is painted a dark charcoal so that the flat-screen TV almost disappears and doesn't compete with the design of the space.
This minimalistic living room features a large bookshelf that, in addition to holding a number of books, is also home to a flat screen television. A neutral sofa is positioned in front of the shelf along with two textured ottomans. A white column provides a traditional touch.
