"These mahogany bookcases define the foyer, dining and living room area without compromising the open feel; they also provide a creative way to display sculptures and artwork. The use of pure square design is a theme you'll see throughout this room and the house — on these dividers, the windows, even the stair balusters," says Shelby Littlefield, interior designer, Siemasko + Verbridge, Beverly, Massachusetts.
The high ceilings in this living room brighten and open this space. A couch and ottoman over a floral rug create one of two seating areas. A love seat and a buffet round out the second seating area in this space. The natural light from the tall windows is enhanced with a tall floor lamp.
Tree wall decor draws the eye upward from a transitional headboard in this neutral bedroom. A sage green duvet is paired with warm wood nightstands, while framed leaf prints ties in the throw pillow for a chic woodsy look.
A custom-built window seat provides extra storage and style in the kid's bedroom in the HGTV Smart Home 2014. "The idea behind the daybed was to have more space for friends to hangout," says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
Tile can not only be beautiful, it can be functional as well. Here designer Becky Sue Becker uses natural stone in warm tones to create a single bathing space out of two. Connecting the shower and bath with one streamlined look creates the idea that it is its own defined oasis in a spacious master bath.
Useless walls enclosing tight spaces were removed to provide welcome openness. Gayler Construction added custom millwork to lend sparkle and distinctiveness. The result is a cohesive, light, airy and far more functional space.
This spacious master bathroom has a walk-in shower separated from the tub by a large ornate arched wall. A double vanity with white cabinets, large mirror and plenty of lighting line the opposite wall.
This kids' room features twin beds fashioned from repurposed pieces of pine, poplar and plywood with headboards upholstered in durable, solution-dyed acrylic fabric. The beds are dressed in cotton and organic cotton linens. A layering of textures and fabric patterns suits both children and discriminating houseguests.
