The A-List celebrity who had these bathroom bookcases designed exclusively for her Hollywood-area home loves reading so much she wants books within reach at all times. Something tells us, however, that her invaluable first editions are stored elsewhere, as a steamy tub could ruin pages, spines and glue. But who reads priceless books in the bathtub anyway? The reading material here is purely for pleasure and relaxation.
The home's first floor has most of the living spaces; the second hosts the bedrooms. And a petite top floor is made up of a large family room with a bathroom, plus extra storage. The house's front overlooks a park; the back, a pretty courtyard.
Tamara Hubinsky’s mission for this design was to create a hideout for the 9-year-old boy that would still accommodate him as he matured. The bookshelf stairs were custom designed to provide storage and utilize precious bedroom space. The stairs also add structure to the loft bed, which is important for kids’ rooms that are subject to lots of movement and heavy use. Small stair carpet treads (in a stone, riverbed pattern) add comfort and safety.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, Joanna decked this master bedroom out in neutrals, making the space feel bright and open. Wood accents, such as the custom made headboard and bench, create warmth in the space, making it inviting. A wood barn door conceals a master en suite that has also been remodeled.
The house's main level centers around an open air living and dining room that seamlessly joins with patios and the gorgeous infinity pool. On either side of this space is a bedroom; the master suite perches on the floor above.
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.
The green walls of this family room offer the perfect backdrop for a family's favorite art work. Comfortable gray couches, ample throw pillows with mismatched patterns and colors and a rustic wooden coffee table enhance the room's cozy ambiance.
Decorated Outdoor Space with Cedar Table and Turquoise Lanterns
Take advantage of a privacy screen or wall separating your patio from neighbors. Hang lanterns, which can cast a glow at night without taking up floor or table space on a patio. Thrift shop for used wire lanterns or globes, spray paint then any shot of color you desire and add candles. A hanging glass lantern project is one that even beginner DIYers can handle.
With ceiling fans and comfortable chairs, this porch calls for sweet tea and sitting a spell. Sharp-eyed guests will spot the classic "Haint Blue" ceiling overhead, which is said to ward off restless spirits in Southern folklore.
