Elegant Gray Kitchen Features Black & White Cabinetry
Sophisticated and elegant, this traditional gray kitchen features a spacious island with a granite countertop and prep sink. Crisp white cabinets pair with dark cabinetry and kitchen island for exquisite contrast.
Muted gray tones give this neutral master bathroom an elegant feeling with floor-to-ceiling cabinets, a single vanity sink with oversized mirror and crystal pulls on the cabinets. Marble flooring runs from the vanity to the nearby modern soaking tub in white.
Cornice Board Shower Curtain in Traditional Bathroom
A blue-and-yellow damask shower curtain hangs from cornice board, adding architectural detail to this traditional bathroom. Marble subway tiles create the shower surround, while marble square tiles are used on the floor. A large open shelf provides plenty of storage.
High-grade nylons combine our favorite factors: durability + stain-resistance + oh-so-cushy. Kelly Sutherland of Connie Vernich Interior Designs says, "Go with a rug that is soft, plush and comfortable on your feet, but that also has stain-resistant qualities. I love a high-grade nylon, for example. For this particular rug, a patterned carpet with great scale was selected. The rug material is very soft underfoot and easy to maintain as it is constructed from a high-grade nylon. The edges were serged in a matching thread to the carpet to provide a high-end traditional rug finish. Don't forget the final touch – a quality rug cushion ensures extra comfort while keeping the rug in good shape for as long as possible."
Silver and gold make this bedroom an elegant retreat. The designer chose a handsome gray paint for the walls, then layered shimmery metallics and inviting fabrics on top. A few pink touches give softness and warmth.
This period kitchen has a glamorous feel that matches the homeowner's classically elegant style. The designer stayed true to the home’s original details while infusing the owner's personality into every nook and cranny. Glass hardware and a glass mosaic tile backsplash give this functional corner a jewel box feel.
This private, waterfront retreat is just 90 minutes from Seattle on picturesque Camano Island, Washington. The property rests on nearly eight acres, with a main house, guest house, post-and-beam barn, chicken coop, apartment and original owner's house. It features views of Mt. Baker, the Cascades and, occasionally, gray whales leaping in the water that borders the property.
Fixer Upper hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines have repainted the siding of the home a modern gray/green and kept the original Dutch door but painted it with a faux finish to look like a dark stained wood grain. They also updated the landscaping as well as a new walkway that matches the brick of the chimney.
Traditional Stairway Features Black and White Gallery Wall
A gallery wall of black and white family photos enhances this traditional stairwell. White wainscoting against gray walls creates a neutral background while the geometric pattern on the stair runner keeps the space feeling warm and inviting.
Instead of being gloomy, dark gray walls create a chic backdrop in this dining room. Mismatched chairs surround a dark wood table, while an Oriental rug anchors the space. A glitzy chandelier tops off the design.
Neo-Georgian Home Rear Facade With French Doors and Pool
All of the main rooms on this neo-Georgian home's first floor are oriented toward the back of the house, with large French patio doors overlooking the pool and the garden. An oversized roofed porch attached to the family room wing has an outdoor fireplace, as do a second porch off the billiard room and a master bedroom balcony.
