Thanks to clever repurposing, its use of reclaimed materials and a bold color palette, this 60-square-foot Tinseltown bathroom is ready for its closeup. The biggest splurge of the bathroom's redesign was a pair of vintage barn sconces. Powder-coated in high-gloss fire-engine red and made of steel, the sconces add industrial flair complete with cages to contain light bulbs. Reclaimed wood and exposed pipe towel rack help complete the industrial look and provide masculine touches in this contemporary rustic bathroom.
Add softness and a touch of muted color to your living room with drapery panels. For a full, designer look, these ready-made drapery panels were installed three panels deep between each window of the living room. To keep the window dressing from feeling flat, choose linen blend drapery panels with nubby texture.
To give this open space between the living room and eat-in kitchen practical use, it was designed as a casual, colorful breakfast nook. A round table and round rug keep traffic flowing easily between the two main spaces. Anytime you’re working with a boxy space, consider adding rounded pieces to soften the hard lines.
An unusual, orange home office makes playful use of small side tables to create shelving against one wall. Blue accents and a floral rug complete the room. A chandelier hangs overhead, while a vase of peacock feathers and unique art adds interesting detail to the room.
Bring a one-of-a-kind touch to your patio with design elements certain to provoke conversation between guests and/or neighbors. Simple statues such as these greyhounds introduce a graphic, organic shape to a space and can help break up the rigid lines of brick or siding.
