A Moravian star pendant light is but one shining aspect of this eclectic office. A dark wood desk sits atop a zebra-print area rug, while gold-patterned white curtains and trendy Roman shades adorn the windows. The light blue walls add color to the space that is carried into the curtains for a seamless look.
A weathered white console table with cabriole legs sets the tone in the entry of this casual California living room. A glass-topped coffee table helps keep the small space from feeling closed-in, and a painted blue side table adds a subtle French touch. A Roman shade in a soft, neutral toile dresses up the window.
This fun, funky and modern master bedroom features a black-and-white accent wall with a bold geometric design. Draperies and Roman shades offer up a contrast pattern and hue that sets the tone for a space that takes style - but not itself - seriously. Yellow accents come in the form of throw pillows and modern art.
This master bedroom, designed by Claire Paquin, features a corner nook with a modern chair and ottoman that continues the theme for this room of comfort and relaxation. The furniture is covered in an attractive white and gray pattern, and a lacquered end table was placed next to the piece. A plain neutral Roman shade completes the look.
An array of gray hues add warmth to this white transitional kitchen while keeping the space neutral. Honed granite countertops feel softer and more subdued than the traditional polished variety. The windows end halfway up the wall, but the Roman shades are mounted near the ceiling to create the illusion of soaring windows and a higher ceiling.
This eclectic sunroom features paneled ceilings, custom Roman shades and peppy sage-and-white trim that makes the millwork pop. Modern chairs team with a woven sofa and reclaimed wood-topped coffee table for an effect that's casual yet effortlessly chic. The once dark and dated farmhouse is now open and airy, with a contemporary color palette and tons of natural light.
In the master bathroom of HGTV Dream Home 2014, a white acrylic tub overlooks the pine forest just outside, while a separate shower is lined in porcelain tile designed to look like weathered barn wood. A Roman shade, constructed of the same fabric used for pillows and window treatments in the master bedroom, can be drawn should privacy be required.
Wallpaper with a whimsical, retro feel dresses up the sitting area in this kids' room. The bright blue ottoman and chair along with the orange patterned pillow add another layer of color to the space. Sleek, white wall shelving and window seat under-storage provide stylish and space-saving options for books and toys. A patterned roman shade allows plenty of natural light into the room.
This inspiration for this transitional, white bathroom was a vintage tourism brochure of Catalina Island. The beachy feel of Catalina Island is incorporated into the design with terrariums hung carefully above the oversized tub with thick, twisted rope Wicker Roman shades add to the casual, California design while complementing the lighter wood floors and bathtub caddy. Dark wood frames a large, leaning floor mirror and recessed lighting illuminates the room.
Placed under a large window that allows natural light inside with patterned roman shades and a one-light wall sconce on each side, the white freestanding tub with center drain includes an ergonomic design and heated surface with three heat settings for soothing warmth on your back, neck and shoulders. “The freestanding tub gives the bathroom a bit more elegance than a built-in tub,” says project manager Scott Branscom.
HGTV fan Beachyone wanted guests to be surrounded by the soothing feel of the ocean both indoors and out. The guest bedroom at this beachfront home was turned into a vacation oasis with a pastel color scheme of green, peach and white, and accessorized with wicker baskets, marine life prints and dark Roman shades to keep out the sun for afternoon naps. To make your guests feel comfortable and welcome, keep the amenities and feel of a hotel in mind. Maintain a soothing color scheme, plenty of pillows, storage space and bathroom essentials. And of course, mirror the home's surroundings. The weathered oars, sand-filled table lamps and natural accessories will constantly remind them that they're on vacation.
My client had the structural aspects of this kitchen down, the marble, the cabinetry and the bar stools but knew she needed the finishing touches to pull it all together as this is a space that they entertain in a lot and spend time with their family every day. The island light fixture was the first thing to find as we knew it would be the showstopper and main focal point of the space. We chose a piece that is both rich and contrasting to all of the white to add warmth to the space but that also has some bling to it! The rest of the softness was added through a greige paint color, geometric fabric for the roman shades and the accessories. Now it is a space that they use everyday and love!
