This eclectic sunroom features paneled ceilings, custom Roman shades and peppy sage-and-white trim that makes the millwork pop. Modern chairs team with a woven sofa and reclaimed wood-topped coffee table for an effect that's casual yet effortlessly chic. The once dark and dated farmhouse is now open and airy, with a contemporary color palette and tons of natural light.
Floral Asian Metal Jewelry Box With Alternating Green and White Panels
This dainty metal tin is a beautiful way to decorate dorm room counter space while creating a storage space for small trinkets and jewelry. The rich green coloring pops against the white wall and light wood table.
An old farm table with faded wood on top and distressed teal paint on the legs was cut in half long ways and affixed to the wall, to create the mudroom console table. The table provides a place to rest keys, sunglasses and other daily essentials.
Playful details abound - undulant baluster collars interject a sense of movement and rhythm to the stairs. Victorian, square section columns supporting the lantern transform to octagons with a wink to the Roman Doric Order.
All of the trim, brackets, balusters and columns were custom designed and then fabricated by millwork craftsman.
This completely custom guest cottage was built in only eight months time.
As seen on HGTV's Home Town, hosts Ben and Erin Napier renovated the living room and foyer of the Rahaim residence. They removed an exterior door and added two large openings in walls to give the house an open feeling when entering the front door.
A gracious entry hall sets the tone for this apartment with white wainscoting and tasteful wallpaper. The adjacent sitting room features a built-in bookshelf, dark wood furniture and a neutral area rug.
A fresh minty green called "Restful" (SW 6458) from the HGTV Home paint collection by Sherwin-Williams evokes an airy coastal feeling in this bright sunroom. The table coated in "Rapture Blue" (SW 6773) draws the eye further into the space. Botanical prints hang on the paneled walls, lending to this coastal cottage feel. An eclectic mix of wicker and traditional furniture in whites, neutrals, and blues sets the tone for the casual space. White curtains allow for plenty of natural light and a white throw rug over hardwood flooring anchors the room.
To make a room appear to be bigger than it is, paint it the same color as the adjacent room. If you have a small kitchen and dining room, a seamless look will make both rooms feel like one big space. And make a sunporch look bigger and more inviting by painting it green to reflect the color of nature. Another design trick: If you want to create the illusion of more space, paint the walls the same color as your drapery. It will give you a seamless and sophisticated look.
Velvet Walls Evoke Texture, Color of the Sea in Windowless Hallway
A windowless hallway need not be overlooked when it comes to good design. Cynthia Spence sought to bring in the textures of the ocean with Holly Hunt cotton velvet wallcoverings and a faux bois textured tin ceiling in the main floor vestibule at the 2016 San Francisco Decorator Showcase. An Art Deco architectural grill conceals an electrical panel.
Green patterned walls, a graceful chandelier and framed artwork ensure this traditional foyer is anything but boring. A lovely beige settee offers sophisticated seating, and a classic wood staircase leads upstairs.
The subtle shifting in the square mirrors adds dimension and texture to what is typically a flat surface. The mirror has been hung on a green wall and positioned behind a wood table on which are two yellow lamps, a small silver bucket with pink orchids and a small green tray of knickknacks.
