An elegant white bathroom scheme can be a popular choice among homeowners, as the color is associated with clean, relaxing and bright, making your space an oasis of luxury. Some people find an all white space to be not their first choice when decorating any room in their home, since it can be stark and not very visually interesting. The most important thing to remember if you want to pull of the look is to pay careful attention to your material selection, especially when it comes to textures and sheen. You can also introduce beautiful accessories into an all-white color scheme, since you are pretty much working in a blank canvas. It can actually be an exciting challenge to create a visually interesting space working with a monochrome palette. We recommend that you add some patterned tiles, leafy plants, wood elements, or some warm neutral tones to offset the cool undertones. Enjoy the collection of images that we have put together for you with a few great tips along the way. Plus, get more bathroom ideas! Let us know in the comments section below: Does a white space look visually pleasing, or do you prefer more color in a bathroom?

A show-stopping minimalist fireplace design in your living room will have a clean-lined aesthetic that is both visually pleasing and create a contemporary warmth. The furnishings that surrounds the fireplace should accent it, but also be inviting and comfortable to encourage friends and guests to sit down and enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a sleek fireplace design. Creating a statement piece in your living room involves selecting the right firebox that will fit in your design scheme and deciding on the intricasies that will complete the looks, such as hearth, surround, etc. When it comes to fireboxes, the current trend seems to be creating a flawless focal point with fire ribbons, which are flames produced by gas that are broad yet narrow. The aesthetic is contemporary but minimalist, replacing faux logs with rocks, sand or glass. The idea is a flickering flame rising out of one of the selected materials to add plenty of warmth and beauty to the space. Have a look through our collection of minimalist fireplace designs to be inspired to incorporate one into your living room design scheme.

Invite the colors of fall into your home by infusing your living room with warmth and comfort that will look aesthetically stunning all year round. You can transition your living space towards fall decor by infusing it with more mocha, grey and beige hues, giving it that autumn feeling without losing the beautiful hues of summer. Try changing up your color palette with darker hues, which have an instant impact on the look and feel of a space. A simple way to adjust your color scheme is to add smaller accent pieces. Consider infusing your space with a few new pieces in hues of spicy autumn, such as pale yellow, soft pumpkin orange, green, chocolately brown, plum and deep crimson. Select pillows and throws that are easy to transition between seasons to help “fall it up”. Adding metallics to your design scheme is also a great idea. One idea for a nice pop of color is adding a silver crocodile skin tray (which can be found at places like Z Gallerie and Pier 1) to a chocolate hued ottoman to give a nice pop of shiny color. Fall is on its way, its time to add some simple decorating touches to your living room to make it cozy and welcoming. Have a look through our vast collection to get some ideas of your own. Have you started decorating your home yet for fall? Let us know which one of these spaces most inspires you to get the process started!
In the past we have featured here on 1 Kindesign several inspiring ways to infuse warmth into your living room, so in case you missed it, have a look: 43 Cozy and warm color schemes for your living room.
Nothing speaks fall more than a toasty fireplace roaring and plenty of fresh wood decorating your shelves or built-in niches. If you like the look of fresh wood to add some naturalness into your space, try just filling a basket and sit it next to your fireplace or sofa.
Lovely throughout the year, decorate in shades of pumpkin, rust, and maple red.
In this stunning living room, the designer infused soft pinks mixed with deep reds and purples, infusing life and color into an otherwise neutral space. This is a great example of how you can add autumn colors to change up the mood in your living room. Try swapping out pillows and throws that are in lightweight summer fabrics for more luxurious and plush velvety ones, rich in harvesty hues.
Karen from the blog, “The Graphics Fairy” was invited to participate in a Fall Home Tour with BHG a couple of years ago. In her living room she decided to go with more muted tones, adding a touch of flair with some silver accents, such as the large mercury glass pumpkin that is set on her coffee table. The rusty orb in the basket was sourced from Marshalls. The horse print hanging on the wall was also a new addition that comes out for the fall/winter season. Have a look at all the wonderful Fall additions that this crafty homeowner made throughout her home here.
This space is a bold example of the use of colors that are inspired by autumn, with saffron and scarlet. The striped area rug begins as the foundation for the scheme (another idea where you can do a simple switch of area rugs with the seasons, just roll up and store the one that is not in use). The saffron hued sofa helps to anchor the space, adding a comfortable and soothing aesthetic. A bold hue of scarlet has been paired to complement the sofa, as found in the armchair and ottoman. A basket with a throw is always a nice idea for storage and easy access, to help keep you warm on a chilly night. Adding plants and succulents adds some nature into the space…and what a great idea with decorating a tray with apples, as seen on top of the ottoman.

Decorating a stylish bedroom with a black and white theme has a timeless quality, creating a dramatic contrasting statement that is aesthetically pleasing. There is something very appealing about styling a bedroom with a black and white color combination. The simplicity of style and serene monochromatic palette creates a very inviting bedroom scheme, making you want to spend more time in this space enjoying your relaxing environment. This color scheme can work well in many different styles, from Art Deco, to modern and minimalist spaces and even traditional, there are just so many options. A black and white themed bedroom can look amazing when it is combined with varying shades of gray. You can paint your walls in all black, all white or a combination of both, as seen in the image above. If you are looking for a more sophisticated look, such as a hotel style aesthetic, consider painting your walls in a bright white as a pared down backdrop. Select silky bed linens and plush pillows and add some black silk cushions. To finish the look, add black night tables and lampshades, adding drama and style. A black and white would also go great in a guest bedroom, since it is gender neutral, it would fit both masculine or feminine tastes. Keep the walls white and add some additional style by hanging a large mirror, creating a sense of spaciousness and reflect natural light. Pair this decor with some pinstriped bed linens and sumptuous velvety cushions in black.
If you are looking to go more minimal with your monochromatic style, try adding a platform bed for some drama. Add some clean white bed linens and keep accessories pared down. If you really want to keep the space looking clean lined, be sure to purchase a bed that has concealed storage in its frame. Finally, if you want to keep the space more traditional, try adding pops of bright accent colors. Add a custom headboard and a black floor lamp, completing the look. Have a look through the image gallery below to see how amazing black and white bedrooms look! Let us know which one is your favorite in the comments section below.

A bright and airy light-filled living room would be delightful for entertaining family and friends and connecting to the outdoors, drawing nature in. Having luminous interiors can help to boost your mood and reduces the need for using artificial lighting. It also helps to enhance the color and aesthetic of the design elements within your room. Light infused spaces in newer homes is very much on trend. Unfortunately there are a lot of older homes that are more dark, so you have to find creative ways to draw light in. If you are not lucky enough to have floor to ceiling walls of windows in your home, you can still bring light in with some clever tricks. Painting your walls white not only makes your room feel more spacious, it also helps to bounce light throughout your space. Placing mirrors in your room helps to reflect natural light, tricking your eyes into thinking a room is more spacious and bright. Additionally, you want to de-clutter your room as much as possible, the better the flow around your space, the more it feels open and light. One other thing you may want to consider if you have it in your budget is to install skylights or a Solatube tubular daylighting device; an alternative solution for when traditional skylights and windows just cannot work in your design and space constraints. Whatever your needs might be, we have put together a wonderful collection of inspiration for you to enjoy. So prepare to be inspired, whether you are looking for ideas for a new build, renovating your living room, or just enjoy looking at some incredible interior spaces, we have something for everyone. Enjoy!

If you are renovating or designing a bathroom, you should contemplate styling your space with an Asian inspired design, which is very soothing and elegant. These spaces typically showcase traditional Japanese influenced architecture, design and art. Paired up with modern and contemporary decor, bathrooms in this style can be ultra luxurious and extremely relaxing. A traditional Asian style bathroom incorporates plenty of natural materials into the design. Specifically, wood and stone are utilized interchangeably for surfaces such as flooring, and sink tops and can draw the outside in through the use of untreated wood and rough-hewn or matte stone. Additional outdoor elements that can be incorporated into your design scheme includes fountains, rock gardens, ferns, orchids and other natural elements.
Furnishings are typically comprised of high-quality hardwoods, usually left unfinished or stained to enrich the natural appearance of the wood. Furniture is incorporated to anchor the design style, such as dressing tables, benches and chairs. Shoji and other screens are also a common component applied not only as a decorative element, but also for privacy. These thin, wood-framed design pieces can help to delineate areas in the bathroom and are effortlessly portable. The screens have a light and airy design that balances well with the bulkier design elements consisting of stone or wood in the sinks, countertops and tubs. The screens may also showcase intricately printed designs that depicts historical interpretations of Japanese culture, flora and fauna or even landscapes.
Have a look through the images below, where we offer you an amazing array of ideas that will hopefully help you to find inspiration for your Asian-inspired bathroom. If you are looking for more bathroom inspiration here on 1 Kindesign, have a look at: How to turn your bathroom into a spa sanctuary and 39 Mesmerizing bathrooms welcoming in nature.
To add softness to the design, flowing curves in sinks and tubs helps to counterbalance hard-edged furnishings, countertops and pedestals for sinks and tubs. Basin or bowl-shaped bathtubs in Asian influenced bathrooms are typically crafted from wood, porcelain or metal, asserting bold, wave-like curves and substantial design. Bathroom sinks are comprised of materials such as wood, porcelain, glass or even metal, and typically emulate a similar fluid, curvaceous design. This sleek yet relaxing design style for the bathroom fixtures creates a beautiful contrast to rough-hewn surfaces and bulkier designs applied to the countertops, flooring and potted plants.
One of the principle elements of Asian style bathroom design is creating an open flow from one area of the space to the next. To create this aesthetic, you should consider using screens or pony walls (half walls) to delineate the space, or design with glass instead of a full wall to visually connect yet segment spaces. A glass-enclosed shower can help to keep the space feeling open and airy, completing the look of an Asian style bathroom. All in all, your space should reflect a clean lined aesthetic with minimalist decor, a soothing color scheme and natural materials.
This Asian style master bathroom features a carved stone soaker tub and wash basins. The flooring is green slate with a pebble flooring on the platform area and black granite on the countertops. Other notable features to this stunning space is a rainforest slab shower and windows framed with stained wood.
This bathroom feature rich earthy tones, creating a masculine aesthetic. The color scheme of the room was selected to blend with the existing woodwork, featuring a warm mahogany stain. To soften this small bathroom’s darker color palette, a furniture-like, open construction vanity was added.
This clean-lined bathroom encompasses plenty of warmth, with delicate Asian-contemporary details. A bamboo ladder is used as a towel rack. Wood paneling in the walls and windows creates structure and balance, with light flooding through the space.

Whether you use sliding barn doors in your home as a space saving feature or just enjoy their delightful rustic aesthetic, there are many creative ideas for their use. Using barn doors in your home can serve several purposes, whether you have a small space and want to create a more interesting design than a regular door or a pocket door, or you just want to make a visual statement. The downside to barn doors is that since they do not seal the same way that a regular door does, they may not help with sound attenuation, if that is something that is important for you. Obviously if it is a pantry door or closet door, this will probably not even be an issue to consider. In the image above, if the designer had used a regular door, the whole design concept would have to be changed to make room for the door to swing in, which would have to leave about three feet of wall space. A barn door just requires a little DIY and some hardware to install, whereas a pocket door requires demolition to install, so the barn door option just got a little desirable. Barn doors can be used in any style of home, from modern to traditional, you just have to pick the right hardware and door style to fit with your design scheme.
We have put together a collection of examples of using barn doors in your home in various ways to create a beautiful design aesthetic, have a look and enjoy!
