Contemporary, Organic Living Space is Full of Light
Vaulted exposed wood beams are paired with three massive pendant lights to bring the 17-foot-high ceilings down and create a cozier environment. Simple yet comfortable furniture surrounds an oversized gray coffee table, while neutral floor poufs provide extra seating when needed.
Before, this bathroom was an outdated, disorganized mess. Now, the design has been modernized with a whitewashed wall, a decorative mirror and sink and updated light fixtures. A large tub adorns the back wall, and the wood wall behind it adds a rustic aspect to the otherwise modern space.
The modern custom bed with built-in night stands is built to be low to the ground to create the sleek, contemporary feel of the space. The fireplace was darkened with a special application for a streamlined, modern look that contrasts with the neutrals and whites throughout the space.
The new living room in the King home is open and spacious. Walls have been removed, creating a much more open feel. Shiplap has been put in and new wood floors have been installed, as seen on Fixer Upper.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines painted one wall a neutral gray and brought in shiplap for a feature paneled wall, matching detail in other parts of the home. A white subway tile backsplash and quartzite countertops add a modern element to the rustic space. Industrial-style shelving made from plumbing pipes and wood planks offer open storage, and a custom kitchen island made from vintage wood contributes style and utility in the kitchen.
When you’re decorating a room—especially when it’s a large, open space like this great room—it helps to stand back and get an overview of the entire area before you decide you’re “done”. Let your eyes sweep the space, the way your guests’ eyes will. Your goal is to have a little something to surprise and delight everywhere the eye rests ( without going overboard, of course!)
This Jackson Hole, Wyoming, home serves as a cabin retreat for the owners and their siblings and extended families. The owners wanted a log cabin with all the modern conveniences, and the design team used a frame construction with log accents and siding. The finished product is an authentic, heritage log cabin with an updated look.
When deciding what kind of coffee table to buy, it's important to think about what function it will serve, says designer Rachel Greathouse. In this case, an heirloom trunk serves a new use as storage and a coffee table in this rustic space.
