Blue Cottage Sunroom With Glass Table
Big plants and blue walls and curtains bring the outdoors right into this appealing sunroom. There's a glass-topped table for afternoon tea (or morning coffee) and the room connects to the backyard via sets of French doors.
The rough metal legs and weather-wood top on this sofa table add a touch of industrial style to this entryway. The scraped hardwood floor adds more texture while the deep blue sofa and ikat curtains provide color and softness.
Replacing an existing window that was smaller, a new insulated double hung window with white trim over the bench with relaxed roman shades brings lots of natural light into the entry. Two adjustable industrial-style wall sconces with a polished nickel finish help illuminate the space.
HGTV Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines turned the once bland laundry room into a colorful and inspiring craft room for the homeowner and her daughters. Three vintage chairs pull up to a large craft table made from an old pocket door.
Cottage-style Neutral Foyer with Refinished Wood Floors
Removing the louvered windows above the shelves, and opening up the entry to the dining room, redefined the look and feel of this front room. Refinished wood floors and fresh paint in a warm gray help to both soften and brighten the room, that now serves as a large, contiguous entertaining space.
To make this foyer as open and inviting as possible, walls were kept basic and neutral accented by delicate glass pendants. The space is anchored by a sturdy console table and mirror. Wall paint color: Sherwin-Williams Narce SW6154
This cottage is only 650 square feet—basically one large room with a bath and kitchenette off to the side. Instead of trying to work a sleeping area into the layout, the designer opted for a Murphy bed stored vertically within the wall, and hid it behind this oversized woven walnut door.
