Detached Garaged Clad in Whitewashed Wood Shingles
A detached garage with wood shingle facade painted in white evokes the look of a carriage house and echoes the style of the adjacent French country-style home. Above the garage is a small guest apartment with a balcony from which to enjoy views of the wooded property in Atlanta, Georgia.
Cozy Basement Family Room From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah transformed this once cramped and dated basement into a modern, multi-purpose family room. Rustic, functional decor in sleek blue and gray hues perfectly complements the home's original, wood-burning stone fireplace. For easy entertaining, Sarah added extra storage, plenty of seating and mounted a large flat-screen TV above the mantel.
Swimming Pool and Cottage Storage Shed With Natural Rock Wall and Decorative Grass Checked Floor
Squares of grass are set between concrete tiles to create a textural checked pattern in front of this cottage storage shed. The natural rock exterior of the shed extends out on the privacy wall encompassing the swimming pool. Flowering plants and shrubs create a planted border hugging the wall adding soft natural color and texture.
Cottage Laundry Room With Yellow Built-In Shelving
Mesh cabinet doors allow yellow shelves to show through and brighten this cottage-inspired laundry room. A fabric skirt conceals the washer and dryer, while concrete-cast plank flooring mirrors the reclaimed wood used on the ceiling.
Can't beat a dutch door for charm factor (bonus: more ventilation!). Other lovely details in the laundry room include the patterned mosaic tile floor and folding table with a turned leg, reminiscent of early 20th century Colonial homes.
The Lakeshore Designs team gave this mudroom a crisp, tailored feel while still making it ultra-functional. Baskets inside high cubbies conceal loose items such as gloves, while drawers keep footwear and other gear hidden away. Even coats and bags hanging from the hooks won't look untidy, thanks to the clean backdrop. Throw pillows and a cheery rug make the space feel polished.
This functional entry serves as a mudroom, complete with built-in seating for putting on shoes and built-in shelves and cabinetry for added storage. Rustic tile floors are durable and appropriate to the cottage setting. White trim, including a white-painted plank ceiling, is crisp and bright against pale blue walls, creating a cheery space that reflects light and feels airy and open.
Even the laundry room got a redo! Fresh white cabinets and a gray stone floor match the farmhouse aesthetic seen in the rest of the house. There are also smart upgrades, like a hanging rod between cabinets, offering an easy place to dry more delicate clothes.
