This midcentury modern kitchen acts as the heart of the home with the home office on one side and dining room on the other. The use of gray and wood-grain laminate cabinets in the kitchen creates cohesive design with the cabinetry in the office and the gray tones of the dining room.
A rich-grained wood console holds court in this Southwestern-inspired living room. The console sits beneath a flat-panel TV, offering a perfect surface on which to display knickknacks as well as to conceal media inside.
This beautiful kitchen features a large island with a neutral quartzite countertop that serves as an ideal surface for food preparation. Oval-backed ghost stools positioned on one side of the island provide the perfect space for casual dining, while a green and blue mosaic backsplash adds an ocean-like touch. Wood grain porcelain tiles cover the floors.
This farmhouse inspired kitchen is full of rustic and vintage detail. From the gold metal and tin pendant light to the ornate shelf brackets that match the hood range this kitchen is full of charming allure. The deep well sink is accented by the large kitchen window and wood grain tile backsplash surround with mosaic detail.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines have repainted the siding of the home a modern gray/green and kept the original Dutch door but painted it with a faux finish to look like a dark stained wood grain. They also updated the landscaping as well as a new walkway that matches the brick of the chimney.
This is a beautiful image of the hand scraped white oak wooden staircase in this Texas home. The structure features functionality but also a design that is beautiful and modern. The look features a sharp transition from the white wall to the beautiful stained white oak. The natural wood grain comes through beautifully and adds a touch of rustic modernism to the area.
Exotic wood with a striking grain makes a strong visual statement out of this vanity and dresser. By keeping the rest of the decor neutral, the designers helped the beautiful color and texture of the wood to stand out.
Don't ignore stress points like railings and stairs. A periodic check for signs of rot, excessive movement and structural problems is always a good idea. Wood can warp and split along its natural grain and cause a safety issue before you realize anything has gone wrong.
This beautiful white kitchen makes use of all the modern conveniences. The use of pop-up countertop receptacles enables the uninterrupted flow of the glass backsplash. The articulating faucet adds whimsy and fun to the structured design of the kitchen's straight and clean lines. Special features such as long lift-up hardware, compact European appliances, white quartz countertops, demi-high units housing the oven and microwave, an integrated refrigerator, a compact wall-mounted wine chiller and grain match veneer give this kitchen the finishing edge.
Designer Karina Bryant of K_Souki Design Studio used complementary colors and textures in her cupboards, contrasting the shiny white upper cabinets with the darker wood-grained lower cabinets. You could get a similar effect by painting upper cabinets in a bright high gloss paint. Keeping the lower cabinets darker makes them easier to clean, especially with children in the house, Bryant points out. The Atlanta home was built by Imery Group.
This simple living room features an all-over white palette with medium grain wood accents, including the trim used to frame three interior windows that provide a peek at the adjacent kitchen. A Southwestern wall hanging is positioned above the fireplace, adding a pop of festive color.
In this streamlined, modern home, the owners desired natural textures and finishes such as natural stone and a variety of woods to juxtapose against a clean, linear backdrop. This bathroom plays with the concept of planes in the use of materials. It is study in contrasting and complementary textures as seen with the tiles from resin inlaid with pebbles and a long porcelain tile that resembles a wood grain similar to that of the cabinets.
While the bottom of the island and the surrounding lower cabinets have a deep charcoal gray color with a wood grain look, the upper cabinets have a white linen finish that keeps things light. “I didn’t want to create a dark kitchen, but I wanted some depth,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “By keeping the darker finish below, it anchors the room visually and then adding the contrasting white up top keeps the room from darkening.”
