Enhance the look of any island by adding stylish brackets, or corbels, to support the countertop. Choose weathered wood corbels for a casual rustic touch, or accentuate a traditional kitchen with ornate brackets. Metal supports create an industrial look. To complete the look, add comfort to wooden barstools with cushions or apply nailhead trim to existing stools. In this kitchen, Terracotta Design Build chose chunky, wooden corbels to give this traditional island a hint of rustic texture.
The newly configured kitchen has a large center island, crisp white cabinetry with contrasting black hardware, new stainless steel appliances and custom vent hood. Joanna Gaines found vintage wooden corbels at a local salvage shop for the perfect finishing touch.
A wall was removed to bring more space and light into newly merged dining room and living space. Antique furnishings and wooden corbels bring both a refined look and a visual tie with the interiors at the B&B next door, as seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper.
The folly is an open-air structure fabricated and carved from solid reclaimed teak. Hand-carved Balinese ornamental corbels highlight the 14" square solid teak corner posts. The rich wood color shines against the concrete foundation, steps and the surrounding plant life.
Decorative wrought iron accents above the cabinets complement the pendants in this Mediterranean-style kitchen. Cast stone corbels support the spacious island, coordinating with the corbels supporting the extravagant range hood. Gorgeous wood cabinets with ornately carved details pull the look together.
A wide stone arch leads to the manicured courtyard of this Spanish-style home in Austin. Terra cotta roofing, lanterns and weathered woods work hand-in-hand to evoke the feel of a timeless Mediterranean estate.
This kitchen features two-toned, weathered cabinetry, ceiling beams and a large island that doubles as a casual dining spot. Light stone and dark wood finishes run throughout this Spanish-style home, creating continuity.
This Spanish-style living room has the feeling of a modern-day Medieval great hall, with interior balconies, arched openings and an imposing stone entryway bridged by a dark-stained lintel. Slipcovered and weathered wood furnishings tone down the formality of the space, giving it a comfortable, welcoming vibe.
To bring in more natural light, a pass-through window was added to this traditional beige kitchen. A large wooden island features comfortable seating for dining in the kitchen, and off-white cabinets provide easy storage and exude warmth in the neutral space.
The contrast between light stone and dark-stained wood brings design distinction to this Spanish living room. A tall stone fireplace ties in with the stone surround of the room's entryway, which features a dark-stained lintel that adds architectural interest as well as structural stability. Furnishings are neutral and slipcovered, adding to the room's casual vibe.
This is the exterior of the Phipps' home after renovation by the Fixer Upper team. The exterior was given a fresh update, a la Joanna, with gray-green paint, new shutters in natural wood finish, a new arched door and reworked columns with corbels.
