Like the lounge and kitchen in the main house, the guest rooms at the Woodhouse Lodge are all decorated in designer Megan Pflug's unique take on country chic. This quaint and relaxing bedroom flips the color palette of the main room while retaining the major elements of its style. Here the white walls are accented by pops of dark colors. Modern design patterns on the headboard and throw give the space a trendy aesthetic while the wood texture of the ceilings and floors maintain the feeling of a cabin in the woods.
This room envokes a feeling of being in your own five-star hotel room. The tasteful minimalism includes cinnamon-colored side tables, white leather furniture and oversized lamp shades. The real star of the room is the wood-planked ceiling. This particular home is a weekend getaway in Palm Springs, hence the tall cactus. The carpet and wall covering are made from recycled materials.
Designer Annie Lowengart balances the use of bold color in this home office by painting the back walls of the cabinetry lime green while keeping the doors, shelving and trim a crisp white, mimicking the balance of color in the wallpaper by Katie Ridder. A playful pink sconce adds a touch of feminine to the space designed to be shared by a couple who work in the California tech industry.
Botanical prints like these are fairly easy to find at thrift and antiques stores, and they can incorporate an old-fashioned luxury into the bedroom. Framed above the bed, they add a sense of nature and calm. “Painting everything ivory and white and the curtains the same color sets off the dark silhouette of the furniture,” says Susan Sully, author of “Past Present: Living with Heirlooms and Antiques." The Jenny Lind Spool bed, an old traveling trunk and shiplapped walls create a cozy feel.
Wood accents warm up the white walls in the open living and dining area of this Camano Island, Washington, home. A cozy conversation area takes advantage of the views from wraparound windows. Meanwhile, a pass-through from the kitchen provides extra seating and opens the room to the main living areas. A catwalk balcony adds to the airy feel and allows for the soaring ceilings that extend throughout the living areas.
HGTV's Design Star judge Candice Olson complimented this design said, "First impressions are everything in the visual word of design. The moment you enter this apartment you feel the wow factor." The eclectic vibe of this living room features a traditional gray sofa, two-toned turquoise walls, a plush red coffee table and ottoman, and a wooden swing seat. The floral patterned brown and white rug adds depth to the design.
Getaways are all about comfort and here, the lounging begins before guests even get through the door. The white, wood furniture pops against the dark gravel of the driveway and the moody color of the lodge itself. As Pflug says, “The color story here started with the outside of the building. I knew I wanted to paint it a kind of dark, off-black color. It looks so amazing next to the greens of nature. Everything else just came from there.”
The formal dining room in this English cottage is outfitted in the traditional style. Rich, wood furniture is the highlight of the space, along with a traditional oriental rug and traditional artwork. To lighten the space and make it feel warmer, however, designers took advantage of the ample natural light spilling into the space from the French doors. By blending white walls and traditional furniture, designers have created an elegant, updated space that is both warm and inviting.
Minimal furniture and ample natural lighting in this uniquely shaped living room give it a spacious and light feel. A neutral leather sofa blends beautifully with the white surrounding walls and neutral floor rug. A burnt orange chair cushion, built in wood shelving unit and hardwood flooring adds warm tones to the bright design. A tall, curved floor lamp and guitar pick shaped coffee table add shape to round out the look.
As seen on Good Bones, this small bathroom was in need of some sprucing. Once a small, dark room, Karen and Mina have transformed it into a bright, colorful space. A new coat of white paint on the walls reflects the light from the window as well as the light above the vanity, making the space feel bright, while pops of turquoise in the vanity and the artwork give the room some color. To finish off the design, a modern, mirrored plant stand gives the space a splash of personality.
In the open design of this home, a stylish modern sitting room is situated next to the wood-saturated kitchen. A modern white leather sofa shines with natural light from the large windows on the back wall. A tufted leather chair and neutral shag rug define the perimeter of the area while keeping it open and connected to the rest of the home. A turquoise serving tray and green throw pillows add small pops of color.
Micah Stansell’s office is actually in the house next door. The aesthetic is a complete departure from that of the family home, however it’s the perfect blank canvas for him to create and edit film and exhibitions. The upper level white space is flooded with brightness via skylights and character-rich with a vaulted ceiling, wood beams and original exposed brick columns. The entire left side of the room is decked with storage cabinets concealed by white glass doors that blend into the walls. This space is a super thoughtful minimalist dream and ideal for any creative.
In the powder room, designers wanted to continue the comfortable, modern ranch style they started in the living room, so they anchored their design in the white shiplap that covers most of the walls in the house. Then, they added a wood vanity with a gray countertop that echoes the colors of the furniture in the living room. Finally, designers added a bit of edgy contrast with a black mirror, black fixtures and black sconces.
This undeniably fun bedroom is a colorful reflection of the budding artist who lives here. Angela's daughter is following in her footsteps and her bedroom/art studio is the perfect space to inspire creativity. Benjamin Moore's White Rain was applied to the walls and trim, then color matched for the drapery and area rug. This design technique creates a gallery-like feel by neutralizing the backdrop, and in this case, allowing her artwork and painterly fabrics to stand out. The crisp white bedside tables pop off of the dreamy wall color and the Pierre Frey fabrics on the pillows and bench are perfect to inspire an artist's imagination. Repeating an additional set of panels and upholstered cornice behind the headboard adds major aesthetic value, style, and an element of customization to this bedroom. My favorite element is the cat lamp, having a "cat nap" on the bedside chest.
This simple modern design boasts quality over quantity. Smooth, dark wooden cabinetry supports a lifted marble countertop. A white vessel sink with a modern stainless steel faucet is positioned below a mirror with a frame echoing the cabinet color. Large tile on the walls has a warm, neutral look in the low light of the sconces.
Natural light from the bay window and light neutral walls make a bright atmosphere for this living room. A green and white houndstooth chair is decorated with a red pillow for a mix of bold colors and graphic patterns. A navy tufted coffee table is a solid buffer between the patterned chair and the multicolor, striped rug. A small natural wood end table brings a gorgeous rough finish to the refined design.
The back of this built-in bookcase is lined with Novogratz Constellation removable wallpaper. The off-white peel-and-stick paper with gold foil design creates striking contrast against the deep green walls and dark wood shelves and can easily be removed or replaced. Accessories like a "hello" sign made from wire, astronaut artwork, a moon LED night light and a brontosaurus tillandsia planter add to the whimsy of the display.
This bathroom stared out with a huge roman raised tub, orange floral wallpaper, and a dark enclosed shower. We removed the tub surround and added a free standing tub, We softened the space by adding floor to ceiling drapery behind the tub. This created privacy as well as some softness to all of the tile and hard surfaces in this room. The walls got a textured wallpaper that added some subtle color and another texture to the space. The shower was a complete overhaul and got a new window, brand new tile and a frosted glass panel for some privacy while still keeping the overall feeling open and light. The cabinets got a paint job and added casing around the mirrors to create more of a custom feel.
