Some design choices can make large-scale items, such as light fixtures, pop even more. It can be as easy as adding a coat of paint over a weekend. In the kitchen and living room of this lake home, Metro Atlanta designer Beth Johnson painted the wood paneling, which had been a pickled oak color, a more appealing white. Then matched the frame of the artwork for a seamless look.
A gorgeous arched wood door leads into this bright and welcoming foyer. White paneled walls and marble tile white flooring light up the space. A decorative chandelier hangs over wood steps with matching railing.
A large black console table graces this transitional entryway with a tall glass buffet lamp and an oversized sculptural mirror. White wall paneling opens up and lightens the space, while chevron ottomans give the entryway a fresh, trendy feel.
Sea green upper wall sections top the white paneling and white column doorway for a soft foundation to this room design. Gorgeous, sturdy wood furniture grounds the room and gives it the craftsman style. Grandfather clocks add height to the design. A wood frame sofa with neutral striped cushions and wood cabinet with floral doors fit the decor perfectly.
Surrounded by white wall paneling, symmetry was used to arrange flanking chairs and the cream sofa in this transitional living room. All furniture is covered in linen in varying shades of creams and grays, while chartreuse and soft lavender are used as accent colors. A large reclaimed-wood coffee table anchors the room, while two burlap sculptural chairs with pivoting wall sconces can be used as reading corners.
This black desk features a sleek, contemporary look and stainless steel embellishments. The desk chair is framed in black with white cushioning for a classic color combination. Gray wallpaper gives a distressed-like finish to the wall. Simple white paneling adds further dimension to the design.
In the bathroom, rustic wood panels add lots of texture and dimension behind the vanity, especially in contrast to the room's crisp white palette. Marble and mosaic tile flooring add further layers of visual interest.
