Gospel singer BeBe Winans' elegant living room is decked out for the holiday season with a floor-to-ceiling Christmas tree dressed with silver, gold and white baubles, as seen on HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes. Lighted wreaths and long, trailing bows adorn the oversized windows on both sides of the tree.
Wide pocket doors bridge the interior and exterior of this stunning Mediterranean-style home in Newport Coast, California. White walls form a neutral backdrop that extends from room to room, harmonizing the spaces. Clean-lined upholstery and sleek, contemporary accent pieces mix with traditional architectural details in the living room, while the kitchen features both rustic and contemporary design elements. French oak floors give the rooms a casual, livable vibe.
A silver, white and cream color palette lends a glamorous yet soothing look to the hall bathroom of HGTV Green Home 2011, which features quartz countertops and a silver-leafed mirror. A shower curtain, custom-made for the space, hangs from the top of the wall to showcase the floor-to-ceiling bathtub surround and emphasize the 9-foot ceiling.
A floating concrete vanity offers a nice contrast to the crisp white subway tile backsplash in this contemporary bathroom. The neutral space has pops of color in the custom tile surrounding the electric fireplace, which serves as the room's focal point. Wood luxury vinyl tile was used for the floor in case of flooding issues in the basement, which is where this stylish master bathroom is located.
As seen on DIY Network's Elbow Room, the view from the kitchen into the great room of this converted barn is breathtaking. White paneling, rich hardwood floors and stone accents are classic staples in country design. Updated takes on barnyard essentials include wall-mounted hay feeders for storage and a sliding barn door.
Exposed wood ceiling beams and a dark hardwood floor add a touch of warm tones to this cool and breezy light pastel color scheme in this bedroom design. A soft blue and yellow floral pattern decorates the bed curtains framing the white bed linens. A bench at the foot of the bed pulls the pastel blue out into the room. Plush furniture shines in the sunlight of the window nook.
The vision for the space was to create a livable, functional area for the homeowners. By removing the one wall in the space that used to define the kitchen, the designers were able to open the floor plan up and maximize the square footage and natural lighting. The renovated kitchen now features custom white cabinetry, wood countertops, breakfast bar and teal barstools, staying true to the cottage feel.
This contemporary gray and cream kitchen has a breakfast nook area with beautiful upholstered seating and modern, industrial pendant light above. The cream cabinets and stainless steel appliances give this kitchen a clean, sleek look while the coordinating gray countertop and patterned tile backsplash add visual interest. Hardwood flooring brings warmth to the space while small pink and white floral arrangements on the breakfast table add just the right touch of color.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Chip and Jo turned the old space into a bright, clean kitchen with new cabinets, wood floors, Carrera marble countertops and light gray paint with white trim. The old drop ceiling was removed, adding height to the room, and a wooden support beam was added. A subway tile backsplash, floating wood shelves, and stainless steel appliances were also installed.
Mint green walls give a soft base to this living room and provides a beautiful complimentary color to the coral details. A coral chandelier with natural stick texture hangs between ceiling beams over the large tufted coffee table. A pair of armchairs echo the coral shade in their wavy striped pattern. A simple white sofa is brought to life with decorative throw pillows, and a large textured area rug covers the floor.
As seen on Love It Or List It, Too, the kitchen and dining room have changed places. Now, the kitchen has plenty of space for storage and prep, while the dining table, which extends from the kitchen island in true Italian fashion, seats up to ten. The Caesar Stone countertops in the color Misty Carrera have been extended to the end of the dining area, and the cabinets are stained opaque, both grey and white, with Benjamin Moor Paint. The flooring throughout the kitchen and the first floor is stone brown red oak from Mercer, and the wall color is Milk Paint from Behr.
Alex Ray, of Five Senses Art Consultancy, was inspired to illustrate a move away from technology back to the basics of communication through an installation of hand-cast bronze letters and ancient symbols, as seen at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2014. An overhead view from the staircase shows the letters tumbling down a white wall where dark brown hardwood floors are accented by a yellow carpet runner.
Puffy modular seating is low and contemporary in this modern farmhouse living room. The white-walled space opens to the dining room and kitchen, giving the home an open-plan, contemporary feel, while traditional architectural touches connect the home to its rural, 12-acre site. An open front porch spans the length of the house, showcasing the view of open fields and distant hills while shading the first-floor interior.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, designer Jillian Harris created a more open space by ripping out the wall that divided the kitchen and living space and putting in a large island with white quartz countertops and lots of new storage. The previous countertops were so outdated, their width did not accommodate a dishwasher. The hardware and lighting was replaced, Edison lights hang above the island, hardwood floors were put down.
A palette of pineapple, charcoal gray and soft white lends a sophisticated, urban sensibility to the living room of the HGTV Green Home 2011, illuminated by a diffused fabric light designed by Tobia Scarpa. A floor lamp with marble base and stainless steel telescopic stem illuminates a seating area. Snow Bush, a framed photograph by Bruce Zander, anchors the nook and adds visual interest.
In an open-plan concept, designers strive not only to create separate zones within one large space but to make the end result feel cohesive. In this home, the designers at Carlton Architecture + DesignBuild did both with finesse. “We divided individual spaces with furniture groupings and circulation. Common materials such as steel, rift sawn white oak cabinetry, and dark stained oak floors are used to unify the three areas,” they explain.
Dark woods like mahogany and cherry can feel heavy when set against carpeting, rugs, curtains and too much color and texture. But designer Abbi Williams uses white walls and ceilings and an ebony floor color to bring balance to this room. Dark mixed with light strikes a harmonious note here.
The workspace in this salon is symmetrical. In the center of the space, white modern nail booths sit in a line. At each of these, a gold Midcentury Modern chair provides customers with a comfortable place to sit. Above each booth is a modern white light fixture with gold interior, accenting the glamour of the space. On either side of the nail booths, four cream armchairs sit in front of pedicure booths, making the space feel even more relaxing. The gold fixtures in the space give the salon floor touches of glam, while the colors of the seating adds to the feminine vibe of the space.
