Household Basic - Gallery 3

An antique armchair upholstered in a vibrant-hued silk adds a pop of color to this staircase.

In this light-filled entryway in Athens, Georgia, an antique console table frames a turquoise toolbox which was found at a thrift store.

Without upper cabinets along the kitchen’s main wall, the room remains as open and airy as the rest of this Charlottesville, Virginia, house.

Rich, mahogany floors make a dramatic statement against tall ceilings and white walls. Pine garland, red roses, and red pears throughout this living room don’t overwhelm this Beaufort, South Carolina’s light-and-dark aesthetic.

This cheery girl’s bedroom in Charlotte, North Carolina, was inspired by its graphic floral wallpaper.  The pink-and-green color scheme is found in the bedding and fabrics and punctuated with a hot pink chandelier and green desk accessories. Awning-like valances and a canopied reading hideaway keep the room youthful and dreamy.

The multi-colored bedding was the inspiration for this boy’s bedroom in Charlotte, North Carolina. Catalog finds and budget-friendly custom touches, like the monogrammed pillow sham, combine to give this bedroom a youthful, boyish feel.

In this Charlotte, North Carolina, master bedroom, the walls are painted a soothing blue, while floral curtains add a feminine touch. The bed linens take a masculine turn with a bold monogram that complements the dark wood of the poster bed and furniture.

This Charlotte, North Carolina, bathroom gets its pretty palette from the medallion-print wallpaper in a powdery blue. A porcelain claw-foot bathtub, his-and-hers sinks, and crisp white, beaded-board wainscoting create a charming cottage feel.

In this Charlotte, North Carolina, dining room, a gold, traditional botanical wallpaper contrasts with a modern rug. Drapes blend perfectly with the warm wallpaper.

Neutral basics like a circular jute rug and sectional sofa create a basic functional background (and provide plenty of seating for entertaining and lounging), while colorful drapes and a throw pillow pack in the personality. Ikat curtains in a fan pleat design are installed at ceiling height to give the illusion of taller ceilings.

This family kitchen in Charlottesville, Virginia, looks like the workspace in a rustic log cabin, only with modern appliances. The large beams and cabinet fronts are made of wormy chestnut barn siding. Iron hardware made by a local craftsman is used throughout the space.

Black-and-white painted wood floors and a vintage Jacobsen Swan Chair in green leather add graphic punch to this Charlottesville, Virginia home office, located just off of the dining room. A chandelier adds some glam to this studious workspace.

Off-white walls and slipcovers provide a soothing backdrop for ever-changing accessories and obsessions in this Charlottesville, Virginia home.

Instead of a formal dining room, this dinner spot works well for entertaining, family dinners, or homework. A slightly lower English tea table fits well with a slipcovered sofa.

Muted gray cabinetry with a distressed finish and open shelves reinforce the room’s openness.

Ropes of garland made from magnolia, red cedar, winterberry, and pinecones complement the stone exterior of this Atlanta home.

A high-gloss finish makes these dark brown walls especially dramatic. Light-colored fabrics and ceiling color balance the rich, chocolate walls.

Go over the top in a small space, such as a powder room. Rich, exotic pink wallpaper really makes a statement in this half bath. 

Vibrant color doesn't always mean all-over color. This master bedroom uses saturated colors in contrasting hues for a big impact on select pieces. 

Not all mudrooms have to involve mud. At the beach or lake house, add an outdoor shower for easy, quick rinsing of dirt and sand. Cubbies and hooks are great for storing beach bags, towels, and flip flops. 

White cabinets, white subway tile, and a crisp white farm sink make this kitchen light and airy. Green accessories and bar stools add punches of color to the space, and an orange graphic rug has a California coastal charm. 

White subway tile is paired with bright lavender walls for a fun and casual guest bathroom.
