This eclectic white entryway houses a functional mudroom featuring a contemporary storage bench. Wooden shelving is situated above the bench, creating additional storage options. Colorful geometric patterns are used to keep the space feeling lively and trendy.
The fun, young family who live in this home wanted an open kitchen with a lot of light and space where they could gather together and entertain. For a colorful surprise, the designers created an island with a rich eggplant finish accented with brass details.
Remove the shades from sconces in order to streamline the style and the space, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Then, instead of a cabinet, use fancy open shelves with baskets to hold toiletries and corral clutter.
Turn beadboard on its side for a whole new bathroom look, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. The horizontal lines of the beadboard can make a small room appear wider than a traditional vertical design. You can also use mirrors in multiple spots, to increase the glamour and spacious feel of a bathroom.
Change the look of existing pendants or garage sale finds with interchangeable shades, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. You can alter the room’s design style and add color with this simple change. Here, textured glass shades catch the eye and soften the light over the kitchen island.
If you have extra space in your bathroom, bring in a stylish chair, like this ghost chair in lightweight acrylic. It can serve as a seat and even towel storage. Just make it look deliberate, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta.
Install a sleek sconce on the side of the bed, instead of cramming a lamp onto a small side table, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. Sconces may feature swing arms or other ways to change the direction of the light, which helps create a comfortable environment for nighttime reading. A wire basket below a bedside table provides additional, yet stylish, storage.
This kitchen renovation in a traditional townhouse was incorporated into the original layout of the home. With a challenge of space, the goal was to include optimal storage solutions while providing a design that kept the traditional charm of the home with a slight nod to modern design concepts. Traditional glass-front cabinetry combined with a subway tile backsplash, sleek marble countertops and stainless steel appliances do just that.
