Wood-Paneled Living Space in Basement Featuring Earth Tones and Global Prints
The wall paneling in this exotic basement space is Hawaiian ohia wood, which gives the space the look of either midcentury modern or Asian design. The earthy tones of the contemporary sectional sofa and leather chair and the global-inspired prints of the ottoman and side table create a chic space for the homeowner who loves to entertain.
Tree-Lined Wall Creates Texture and Serene Atmosphere
The back wall of this dining space is lined with alternating white birch and yellow pine trees, giving the entire restaurant the feeling that one is dining in the Zen silence of the forest. The rough texture of the trees provides a nice contrast to the sleek leather banquette below.
This neutral powder room features floor-to-ceiling wood paneling and stone mosaic tile. A bold marble countertop adds flair to the distressed vanity, while lantern-style metal lighting gives the room an Asian-inspired touch.
A silver Asian bell hangs near the front door of this home, sheltered by a pergola of large redwood timbers. A wild garden of ornamental grasses and a covered seating area make this a peaceful and inviting place to come home.
Contemporary Asian Kitchen With Lava Stone Countertops
The state-of-the-art kitchen features a meticulously designed chef's workspace, countertops of polished volcanic lava stone, subdued lighting and high-end cabinetry. The total cost for this kitchen was about $400,000, as seen on HGTV's Million Dollar Rooms.
In this warm, welcoming dining room, as seen on HGTV's Deserving Design, a classic George Nelson light fixture hangs above a table that is ready for a dinner party. The brown wall color is both soothing and dramatic.
A soft color palette of tan and sky blue pairs with Asian design to give this bedroom a serene, tranquil atmosphere. A sliding glass door provides access to a private patio and also allows natural light to infiltrate the room.
This lively powder room takes cues from Asian design with a multicolor decorative vanity and all-over brown wall tiles. A bronze globe light hangs overhead and features a cutout design, allowing the light to diffuse in interesting patterns. Charcoal tiles line the floor.
A 19th-century Japanese Mizuya is wall mounted and split into two sections to act as upper and lower cabinets in this Asian-inspired kitchen. Custom cabinetry mimics the style of the client's prized tansu chest in the adjacent dining room.
A wood platform bed serves as the focal point of this tranquil Asian-style bedroom. A silver planter with large bamboo stalks and a gold Buddha statue flank the windows with floor-length neutral drapes and mounted pendant lamps. A frosted glass door and neutral bench complete the room.
Slate Tiles Create Depth in Zen-Like Eat-In Kitchen
The clean lines of the floating ceiling detail, oven hood and cabinetry work with the contrast of dark and light tones of the color palette to create a Zen-like feel in this open kitchen. The slate tiles carried across the island and up the wall and the granite countertops add a touch of earthiness to this otherwise contemporary space.
Entering from the dining room, custom pocket doors in a fretted work pattern frame the kitchen. An antique Japanese mizuya chest is separated by an iridescent gray backsplash, which adds depth and a touch of glamor to the space.
