Instead of remodeling your whole kitchen, just refurbish your countertop to add a dramatic sweep of color, says Erika Woelfel, VP of color for Behr Paints. This neutral kitchen gets a pick-me-up from Behr’s Mountain Blueberry paint on the island topper (plus Marsh Grass on the upper row of cabinets). Woelfel recommends using a high-gloss or semi-gloss enamel for kitchen surfaces.
In this open concept living area, an oversized paper pendant light helps to delineate the dining space. The clean lines of the table and mid-century chairs perfectly fit the simplicity of the overall decor.
This unique kitchen layout combines form and function — an oval-shaped island and a curved breakfast bar work beautifully together while providing ample counter space for food prep. Tall ceilings drizzle a stunning variety of pendant lights for a perfect finishing touch.
Warm neutral tones and streamlined furnishings help this large great room flow as one. The custom two story chimney is made with organic wood and stainless steel accents and becomes an easy center piece for the whole home.
Dining Area With Table, Distressed Rug and Leather Seats
This dining area features a table surrounded by leather director-style dining chairs atop a distressed area rug. The space includes windowed French doors leading outside as well as a hooded chandelier over the table.
Brushed linens in neutral stripes are casual and relaxing. A small pop of blue in the pillow packs a punch in this beige palette. Artwork and a small decorative mirror over the nightstand add just the right touch.
A soft, cozy beige sofa and large plush ottoman is the perfect spot to relax and unwind. White tables and lamps are uncomplicated in front of large windows that fill the room with natural light. These elements together with the neutral white and beige color palette contribute to the overall comfortable and calm feel of the bedroom.
Light and airy, this bedroom is a true retreat. The fireplace is the focal point with a faux finished steel floor to ceiling surround. It is flanked by floating shelves to provide airiness and a place for favorite books and pretty collections. Floor-to-ceiling drapery heightens the room and has a blackout lining for deep sleep.
Fresh pink patterned drapery, a stunning wool Moroccan area rug and a modernized mantel make this living room a happy and elegant conversation space. Originally a colonial style mantel, the new look was achieved with drywall and beautiful bright white plaster, which reflects natural light into the room and creates a fresh and modern feel. Designers emphasized the area with a chocolate brown accent wall above. Flanking the mantel with matching cabinets brings balance and adds storage.
The wide zig zags on this living room's shades leap out at the eye like another piece of artwork. Other details that could be overlooked, like the stair's angular trim, get to be part of the action too, thanks to their crisp contrast against white walls.
