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!
