Light-Filled Sunroom with Backyard Views
Opening this sunroom to the kitchen floods both spaces with natural light. Ombre curtains coordinate with the waterfall coffee table painted in Bridget Beari Colors high gloss Petula. The cozy white sofa allows for comfy viewing of the backyard.
Designer Susan Jamieson explains "painting the door frames black keeps the eye moving and expands the view to see beyond the architecture to the outdoors".
Replacing the heavy brick mantel with a hand-carved washed wood mantel and ledge stone hearth creates a contemporary, cozy and inviting room. A quatrefoil window was added to create visual interest while bringing in another natural light source. A stylish bar is perfect for entertaining and the bar top repeats the ledge stone from the fireplace mantel creating visual continuity and connectivity. The lucite barstool backs keep it light and allow the eye to move easily throughout the space. A blue sectional and comfy club chairs are perfect for entertaining or snuggling.
A shell pink mirror lends an edge of fun to this small, contemporary powder room. Throughout the house, pale earth tones and contemporary accessories and art showcase the homeowners' fun and playful personalities. The estate-size home rests on 30 acres beside a Connecticut lake.
Coastal Kitchen With L-Shaped Breakfast Bar and Teal Accents
This spacious eat-in kitchen features an L-shaped breakfast bar complete with built-in glass front cabinets and teal leather stools arranged on one side. Glass pendant lights hang from the white coffered ceiling, while natural wood floors complete the look of the space.
This vintage-style, white kitchen features unique design touches, like the custom range hood made from recycled shiplap, green cabinetry with black iron pulls, and custom windows with storage above the sink letting in all the natural light.
As this 6-foot-by-7-foot Atlanta bathroom demonstrates, sometimes bold color is all you need to make a big statement. Although this space receives no natural light, the bold Kelly green walls give it fresh personality. The ultra-white floor and wainscoting counterbalance the green's intensity.
In one corner of a kitchen with sage green walls, a dining nook has been assembled, using a wood dining room table, padded corner bench and a wicker chair for additional seating. A wicker basket filled with an ornamental grass and floral centerpiece complement the style and artwork.
Green Traditional Living Room With Nailhead Coffee Table
Varying shades of green come together for a calming effect in this traditional living room. A soft brown leather ottoman with nailhead detail makes for a perfect coffee table or extra seating during parties.
No built-in cabinets? No problem. Ikea's Algot adjustable mounted storage lets you install the features you need without a contractor. After you attach vertical rails to the wall, the shelves and drying rack easily fit into place — and you can always add more.
