This rustic living room with stone walls and fireplace is all decked out for Christmas. Stockings are hung from the mantel with care while decorative trees, decorations, candles, and greenery draw attention to the illuminated Christmas star above. Two simple upholstered chairs up front provide a perfect sitting area for holiday guests. Blue and white patterned throw pillows add some winter glitz to the otherwise neutral room.
Inspired by the horse painting on the wall, this rustic living room keeps it light and airy. The light-colored couch adds plenty of seating and, along with the handmade shag rug, anchors the room. An antler chandelier adds another rustic touch that complements the exposed ceiling beams. A stone wall around the fireplace adds texture against the surrounding white walls.
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.

The open plan kitchen is welcoming and the perfect heart of the home. Neutral stone tile grounds the space, while bright white cabinets and Caluctta marble countertops create a fresh, inviting atmosphere.

As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, a dark and cramped basement is transformed into a bright recreation room full of amenities for a growing family of four. Sarah used cool blues, grays and whites throughout the space for a rustic, refined style that's functional for all. Durable wood panels and Brazilian slate floors were added to complement the home's original stone fireplace.
A deep, royal blue sofa and tufted yellow coffee table stand out in this natural living room design. A pair of wood stools with baby blue seat tops are a unique seating addition. A natural and brown rug adds an interesting pattern below the furniture. Gray stone frames the fireplace finished with a white mantle. Color coordinated bookshelves compliment the bold furniture colors.
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.
The textured gray walls in this modern living room mix well with the gray shag carpet separated by a long, short white shelf. The coffee table is gray stone with a diamond pattern on top. A solid purple chair and bright blue feathered wreath provide a strong pop of color against the gray.
David and Kortney wanted to keep the living room open and simple, so they brought in a neutral sofa to complement the white walls, neutral stone fireplace and natural light of the space. Then, they added color by adding blue and green striped chairs with mint accents throughout the space to keep things stylish and bright.
In a waterfront property on the far eastern edge of Shelter Island, N.Y., architect Jack Wettling used a palette of crisp white accented with sea blue to create a relaxing master bathroom. “The colors draw in the views from the picturesque Coecles Harbor,” he says. A judicious use of high-end stone — in the marble tub surround and a narrow marble border on the wall — lends a luxe look without breaking the bank.
As seen on Rocky Mountain Reno, the couple renovating this log cabin in Minturn, Colorado was interested in bringing both rustic and modern designs together to make the home of their dreams. The clean, white tile, grey stone vanity and grey patterned and mosaic tile, the modern style is greatly represented. To incorporate the rustic design, Trista used natural wood in places like the exposed beams in the ceiling and natural wood baseboards.
The homeowners were not interested in a white kitchen, but instead wanted something with a little bit of color, so designers brought in custom walnut cabinetry to bring the space to life. Those cabinets were topped with Luche de Luna quartzite counters and a waterfall island in the same stone. Finally, the design was finished with royal blue velvet stools with gold legs that bring out the warmth in the quartzite and complement the Brutalist chandelier.
As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It Too, the primary challenge for Kevin & Celine's family home was maintaining a balance between the heritage of the house and incorporating a modern design. Designer Jillian Harris bridged the border between modern and historical by choosing a modern version of tile for the backsplash, which is traditionally black and white. The Caesar Stone counter tops are a quartz composite. The cabinets were built to store Celine's many cooking pots.
A large mirror stretches the length of the wall to top this traditional vanity with white marble countertop. A large floral arrangement creates a centerpiece for the vanity. Mounted stone plates face each other decorating the room and adding texture and depth. The crystal vanity knobs in conjunction with the crystals on the chandeliers and sconces allow for more balance with light to sparkle.
The crisp palette of charcoal grey and white sets the scene for this modern backyard. A new steel and wood structure was designed as an extension of the existing shed. The outdoor space houses a stone fire pit and TV on the upper level and the outdoor kitchen on the lower level. Pool Environments of Texas won an Association of Pool & Spa Professionals award for the project.
This open-plan kitchen, living room and dining room allows for easy flow. A bay window dining alcove and floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors allow for plenty of natural light. The dark hardwood floor contrasts the gray stone accent wall. Stylish glass and metal chandeliers on chains add points of visual interest. The room features both warm and cool tones, and plenty of textures, like the brown suede and velvet barstools, white marble countertops, and colorful patterned dining chairs.
Stone crowns atop columns lead the way to a giant chess board made of prefab 2x2 concrete squares with exposed pebbles. Taking inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, designer Margie Grace of Grace Design Associates. Inc., has red roses on one side and white roses on the other. Fourth of July roses, which are speckled and look like they're being painted for the Queen, are in pots behind the benches. "If it's your fantasy, just go there," says Grace. "Don't do it by halves."
