Fearless DIYers in a “Flipped” Portland House

Name: Tim and Kelly Fischer
Location: SE Portland, Oregon
Size: 1,650 square feet
Years lived in: Owned 4 years

After making offers on six other houses in Portland’s competitive real estate market, Tim and Kelly and their nine-year-old twin daughters Isabelle and Olivia were thrilled to finally have a home to call their own. The house they bought had just been “flipped” in a style that wasn’t necessarily theirs, but the Fischers saw an opportunity to make the new space the perfect cozy home for their family.

Kelly has great style and is also a fearless DIY-er. She inherited these traits from her mom, who is a multi-talented designer, and the person Kelly calls “a constant inspiration.” The family got right to work removing a main wall of the home to create the open living area they desired. Kelly also took on electrical work in her new home, switching out unattractive light fixtures, and designed and constructed custom furniture and built-ins herself.

Kelly and Tim are avid world travelers, and mementos and photographs from their many trips are displayed throughout their home. “Seeing how the rest of the world lives helps us appreciate what we have, and gives us ideas on how to better utilize our space.” Their cozy Portland bungalow is filled with plants, vintage finds, Kelly’s handmade furniture, and souvenirs from their travels. It feels like a nice place to come home to after a long trip.

Apartment Therapy Survey:

Our Style: We try to fill our home with eclectic pieces. Keeping it simple and neutral, so it’s easier to mix it up with smaller accessories. When we travel we bring back unique things to give our home character and meaning. We like it better when there’s a memory behind something.

Inspiration: Traveling — seeing how the rest of the world lives helps us appreciate what we have, and gives us ideas on how to better utilize our space. My mom has been doing this for years — she is a constant inspiration.

Favorite Element: Our bungalow is pretty tiny so we tore down a wall to create a more open-concept space between the dining and living room.

Biggest Challenge: We have a lot of trouble with our low ceilings and organizing our home to make it interesting, but keeping it low on clutter.

What Friends Say: “There’s always something interesting to look at — unique surprises in every room.”

Biggest Embarrassment: Our house was a flip, and the previous owner installed cheap carpet everywhere.

Proudest DIY: I have two! Our headboard my mom and I made from reclaimed cedar that was originally milled from my parents’ property. The other is the built-in shelving in our living room — I assembled and installed it
myself.

Biggest Indulgence: I’ve spent the most on good lighting, which is, admittedly, an addiction.

Best Advice: Decorating a home doesn’t have to be costly. If you have the resources and time to dig, you will be rewarded.

Dream Sources: If Emily Henderson outfitted my house, I might die.

Interior Design — Pretty Kitchen Makeover On A Budget

Designer Trish Johnston transforms a small family kitchen into a pretty space for a family with two little girls. See how she used glamorous finishes to add personality to every square foot.
Trish describes this bright and airy kitchen as a jewel box. To achieve this look, she painted the existing cabinetry in Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White (CC-40), replaced the countertops with a showstopping Calacatta marble and accessorized with brass and crystal hardware throughout. While the kitchen is small, Trish managed to fit an eat-in zone by extending the peninsula. A powdery shade of light blue on the cabinetry gives the space a dash of color, while an elegant patterned fabric on the blinds and upholstered stools offers an extra touch of opulence.

Wonderful Hallway Runner Ideas for Your Home

The hallway is the first part of your home’s interior. If it is designed inviting and cozy, it will leave a good impression on you and your visitors. To make a hallway cozy one very easy way is to roll out a stylish runner rug. Some really beautiful rugs are available at catwalk rugs too. Let’s say, if you want to add pattern to your hallway, roll out a striped runner. If you want to add texture, go for a woven rug. These and more designs are below for your inspiration:

1. Spice Up The Hallway  with a Traditional Runner

Image via: houzz , style blueprint

Old is gold and any runner with a traditional pattern will definitely increase the beauty of your hallway by many folds.

2. Create A Customized Runner with Carpet Tiles

Image via: flor , boston magazine

If you can’t seem to find the right size of the runner for your hallway then you can make one by yourself using carpet tiles. In this manner you can create the perfect combination of design and size without compromising on style.

3. A Floral Masterpiece

Image via: ideas designing

Flowers bring freshness and a feminine feel to any place they are added. And the same goes for a hallway.

4. Coordinating Stair and Hallway Runners

Image via: cybball

If your hallway has stairs too, then you can match the stair and hallway runners to create a harmony in style.

5. A Timeless Moroccan Stencil Runner

Image via: the everygirl

Some patterns are designer approved and one such pattern is a Moroccan stencil. No matter how many trends will come and go, Moroccan stencil can never go wrong.

6. A Woven Runner Rug with a Wonderful Texture

If you want to introduce texture to your hallway, then a woven runner is the decor element you should go for.

7. Dandy Striped Runners in Different Colors

If you are a fan of stripes, then depending upon your design taste go for a monochrome or a colorful striped runner.

8. A Classy Chevron Runner

Image via: memorable decor

Just like Moroccan stencil discussed above, chevron pattern is also timeless. It is a stylish pattern and goes well with almost any kind of interior.

9. An Animal Print Runner

Image via: houzz

Do you like animal prints? If yes, then decorate your hallway with an animal print runner. If you don’t want the print to be too loud, then you can go for a runner with an animal print in muted tones like this one.

10. Cheerful Color Pops

Want something lively and cheerful in your home? Then adorn your hallway with a jazzy runner.

Beautiful Bedroom Design Ideas For The Whole Family

“When you invest in your bedroom you invest in yourself”

 

Designer Gillian Gillies shares three bedrooms she designed for a family with two kids. Get her tips on how to create a space personalized to each family member, plus smart bedroom storage solutions that go beyond the closet.

In the parent’s master bedroom, Gillian wanted to create a spa-like retreat, so she used a palette of light green and blue for a soft and serene atmosphere. A built-in wall separates the dressing room, while a custom king-sized storage bed keeps clutter at bay. For the kids rooms, Gillian took a more layered approach with pattern, color and texture. The daughter loves art and is very creative, so Gillian kept the color scheme neutral so she can add in her own prints and accessories. The son’s room didn’t have a closet before the renovation, so adding storage, like a bed with drawers and a built-in desk, was the main focus of the renovation.

If there’s one room in your house that needs plenty of storage space, it’s the kitchen. Beautiful kitchens are a source of pride, and one way to keep your kitchen looking good is to keep it clutter free. But we all know that isn’t always the easiest thing to do. Between dishes, ingredients, and utensils, there are plenty of kitchen items that need a place to go. For people whose homes don’t have pantries, finding a convenient place to store things can get a little difficult. No one wants to clutter their counters with pots, pans, or dishes, but people also want to make sure that all of these items are easily accessible. This is where shelving comes comes in.

Shelves allow you to store your items in a way that reduces clutter but also makes them easy to get to. That all sounds well and good, but you’re probably thinking about how boring and ugly shelves can be. However, floating shelves offer storage and style. These shelves, which appear to be suspended in air, are a great solution for kitchens. If you want to see how amazing these shelves can look, especially in already beautiful kitchens, these examples will give you a taste. Here are 20 beautiful kitchens with floating shelves.

Take A Peek Inside 19 Living Rooms In Actors’ Homes

By Melissa Minton

When actors are not on location for an upcoming movie or television show, they retire to their high-design homes around the world. In their living rooms, celebrities (and their designers) incorporate cozy fireplaces, comfortable seating, bold art, and warm lighting to create spaces that are perfect for any occasion, whether they are entertaining A-list friends, learning their lines, or relaxing with family. Take a glimpse at the personality-packed living room decor of George Clooney, Jennifer Aniston, Ellen Degeneres, and many other stars and see where they kick-back after a night on the red carpet.

DERRY MOORE

The artworks include, from left, a Roy Lichtenstein print, a Mario Dal Fabbro sculpture from Maison Gerard, and two Sol LeWitt woodcuts; the television is by Samsung.

In the living room of Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres’s Beverly Hills house, a pair of slipcovered sofas and a cocktail table, all by Kathleen Clements Design, are grouped with Louis XVI bergères; the Avalon blanket is by Hermès, and the fringed throw is an antique textile.

What Is Transitional Style? The Type of Decor Everyone Can Agree On

By Margaret Heidenry

With so many decor styles out there, it can be hard to stick with just one. Modern, rustic, shabby chic, traditional—deciding on the vibe you want for your home can be downright confusing. But here’s the great thing about interior design: Many of these styles overlap, and can actually work really well together. The design world uses the term “transitional style” to describe the type of design that melds two different aesthetics—modern and traditional—into the same room. So how can you bring transitional style into your home? Our experts break it down for you.

Defining transitional style

The key to achieving this style is balance. Transitional style welcomes disparate styles—the traditional and the modern, the feminine and the masculine—in the same space. It’s a classic, clean look that’s reinvigorated by mixing in contemporary furniture, rugs, and accessories, according to Ellie Thompson, CEO of Venyou, an online platform that lists private homes and estates for events. An angular, modern dining table surrounded by traditional upholstered chairs is a typical example of transitional design. A rule of thumb: You want the decor to be inviting and accessible, not veering too far into one trend or another.

As with any design style, there are unofficial rules to get the look. You can best achieve the mix-and-match transitional style in your home by choosing pieces that follow these guidelines.

Element No. 1: Beige is your friend

Neutral tones are the hallmark of transitional style, according to Thompson. Go for an unsaturated palette of white, cream, beige, tan, gray, or light brown. A simple neutral backdrop for the walls, flooring, cabinets, and large furniture will make the room feel timeless.

Element No. 2: Mix textures

Transitional style embraces different materials that have the same color but that give texture to the space. “Whether it be stone, wood, or leather, transitional style isn’t married to one type of material,” says Thompson. “Using a couple different textures will help you achieve an elegant but modern look.” She suggests incorporating such textures as chrome, gold, wood, glass, fabric, and faux fur into every room of your home.

Element No. 3: Use antiques strategically

Balance out an otherwise contemporary room with an antique statement piece. This will give the room depth and show off your curating skills. “Nothing makes a room feel more modern,” says interior designer Mark Cutler of Los Angeles. “The more sleek the space, the more rustic and worn the antique should be,” he says.

Element No. 4: Use bold accents sparingly

“Don’t overdo it!” says Thompson. Keep it simple by picking a couple loud pieces that accent the room but don’t clutter it. Patterns are used sparingly and tend toward geometrics. “And window treatments will be simple, with sleek lines instead of fussy or complex designs,” says Griffin.

Photo by Martha O’Hara Interiors—Yellow accessories in a transitional living room add interest but don’t overpower.

Element No. 5: A contemporary rug is a must

Transitional furnishings will almost always be partnered with a contemporary rug—think solid, geometric or animal prints—rather than a traditional rug that’s floral, paisley, or oriental, says Griffin. “This is a simple way to touch on transitional style that doesn’t require a complete redesign of your home.”

Element No. 6: Choose modern art that makes a statement

“Keep it big and bold for a greater impact, instead of hanging lots of smaller pieces,” says Griffin. Art should have a contemporary look, in terms of style and colors—abstract works, graphic prints, and photography are best.

Element No. 7: Rely on classic lines

Stick to furniture, tables, and beds that have a sophisticated shape with simple, sophisticated lines, as opposed to pieces that are rounded and ornate. Transitional furniture will be comfortable but boast straighter lines.

“Square off everything,” says Tracy Kay Griffin, lead designer at Express Homebuyers. That means that in choosing a traditional element, you avoid curves and ornate detail, and make sure it has straighter lines, to minimize detail. “For example, doorknobs could be straight levers as opposed to round knobs, and sinks may have a rectangular shape.”

The transitional aesthetic requires the seamless marrying of several traditional pieces with true contemporary pieces. Essentially, this means that your home should be a sophisticated yet livable home, full of beloved items and sensible furniture that can last a lifetime.

5 Bathroom Ideas to Steal From Hollywood’s Coolest It Girls—and How to Shop Them

Sacha Strebe

by SACHA STREBE

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the myriad of celebrity homes we’ve had the privilege of shooting for MyDomaine, it’s that when it comes to style, some people are just born with it. Case in point: Lauren Conrad’s former Cali-cool home in the Pacific Palisades. It’s an undeniable master class in swoon-worthy, texture-rich bohemia, with that timeless glamour and modern femininity we’ve come to expect from the A-lister.

However, Conrad’s not the only one. We pretty much want to steal the bedrooms, dining rooms, and living rooms of all our favorite It girls—oh, and we definitely want to raid their closets, too. But if there’s one room we want to mimic above all else, it’s the bathroom. While the kitchen will always be the hero of the home, the powder room is where we really take a load off, expunge the daily stresses, and soak the senses, both literally and figuratively. So we compiled five of our all-time favorite celebrity bathrooms along with the key pieces to get the look at home—and all of them have one thing in common. Can you guess? It’s bound to assuage your Instagram envy.

When you have a crazy-busy schedule like actress and musician Julianne Hough’s, you need a stylish sanctuary to come home to. That’s exactly what she did with her bathroom. It’s earthy and raw, turning on Mother Nature’s charm with a floor-to-ceiling window that floods the room with sunlight. In fact, this natural palette runs throughout her entire home. “Muted, earthy greens, browns, blues and some yellows feel grounded and protective,” she told Better Homes & Gardens. “But I also love pops of color. They symbolize pure joy.”

Lauren Conrad’s bathroom is a traditional-modern fusion. It strikes a balance between classic and contemporary with ease, and we’re pretty sure most of you reading this wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to have this freestanding-tub situation in your own home. We love the all-white look balanced out with natural light and warm timber details. The textured Little Market throw and the vintage Turkish rug really add a hint of boho-chic flair. You simply must check out the full tour of her Cali-cool home for more interior inspiration.

It’s hard to imagine a New York city loft could ever be transformed into a space fit for a family of four, but that’s exactly what design firm Ashe + Leandro did when they approached the home interior of actress Naomi Watts, featured in Architectural Digest. The two-time Oscar nominee shared the space with former husband Liev Schreiber and their two sons, 8-year-old Alexander and 7-year-old Samuel, so it needed to have that fusion of fashion and function. The end result is an inviting family oasis complete with a master bathroom and a freestanding tub we all want to soak away the hours in. We love the glam gold touches and penny-tiled floor.

We all love her style on So You Think You Can Dance, so it’s not surprising that the television personality’s superior taste extends into her house, too. When InStyle toured her Benedict Canyon home, we fell head over heels for her laid-back cool design with a hint of bohemian flair. It has that elevated nomadic vibe that comes from traversing the globe. It’s these subtle jet-setting sentiments that truly make this bathroom feel like home.

We’re not the only ones who favor the bathroom as the top spot in the house. Erin Foster cherishes her master bathroom complete with a freestanding clawfoot bathtub. “I’ve never had a nice bathroom before,” she told MyDomaine. “The truth is I just couldn’t afford anything nicer, so I lived in a dump for 10 years, and I waited until the very last minute to finally let myself have beautiful things. Now when I shower and look around, I literally smile because I’m just so happy with myself in this beautiful bathroom. I’m just in heaven. Sitting in there, washing my hair, and smiling.” We love how she styled the bleached-out space with a pop of color via the fuschia African juju hat. In fact, her entire home tour has similar pops of color to brighten your day.
