Whimsical Wall Decal in Contemporary, Brown Bedroom
Used on a brown accent wall above a low headboard, a wall decal adds a touch of whimsy to this contemporary bedroom. A platform bed keeps a low-profile with simple bed linens and a sleek profile. Mismatched nightstands and teal lamps are fun bedside accents.
Breezy Covered Porch With Tropical Waterfront View
This relaxing covered porch boasts blue and neutral accents throughout nestled under a wood paneled ceiling. A glass coffee table sits at its center, while arched doorways give way to a tropical waterfront view.
Majestically poised along the shimmering Gulf of Mexico waters bordering Siesta Key, this masterfully designed retreat invokes distinctive Asian-inspired aesthetics to achieve a unique harmony with nature. Enjoy dinner by the ocean on the small beachside deck, complete with a dining table for four and an unbeatable view. A small pathway leads back to the main house for quick access to necessities, like drink refills and dessert.
The high coffered ceiling and arched entryway bring sophistication to this Tuscan-style home office and library. The rich wooden desk complements the wall-to-wall built-in bookshelves, while the patterned area rug brings a splash of color.
Traditional Dining Room is Sophisticated, Welcoming
The sophisticated dining room has terracotta-colored Venetian plaster walls and a traditional table surrounded by floral-printed dining chairs. Dramatic curtains and swags dress the large windows, while the room is grounded by an Oriental area rug. A beautiful chandelier is a sparkling centerpiece in the room.
Traditional Living Room with Rustic Beams, Castle Feel
A pass-through connects this traditional living room to the kitchen in this Texas home with castle-like details and soaring dimensions. A stone fireplace provides a focal point in the living space, while a wagon wheel-inspired chandelier gives a nod to the home's castle-like architectural detail. The ceiling beams continue from the living space into the spacious kitchen.
Remodeled Living Room With Stone Fireplace and Built-In Benches
A new fireplace was added in the living room, creating a visual focal point with its neutral rock facing and built-in benches on either side. The addition of an exposed beam vaulted ceiling makes the room feel more open, while removing a wall between the kitchen and living room allows for an easy flow between spaces.
A full bar features built-in wine storage and ample seating for family and friends. The lower level of this three-story beachfront home serves as a game and media room, bar, exercise room, full bathroom and laundry room. Broad windows let in loads of natural light and put the ocean views on display. Tans, browns, deep greens and blues combine with textures such as woven reeds, metallic, leather and driftwood to bring nature indoors. A feature wall behind the bar was inspired by the client's travels.
If the brightest white is not desirable or appropriate to your particular project, tone it down a few notches. This modern, warm brown billiards and bar area creates a cozy space for family and friends.
A charming foot bridge leads to a back door with a criss-cross paned window, part of the charm of this luxurious home's classic Tudor construction. The 6,700-square-foot house rests on 4.5 acres in California's Lake Arrowhead community.
Light and Bright Modern Kitchen With Stylish Metallic Stools
Natural light illuminates this modern kitchen with medium grain walnut cabinets and white stone countertops. Metal stools line the kitchen island, while a glass chandelier hangs above. Natural hardwood floors provide a finishing touch.
