Traditional Kitchen Design Ideas 2011 With Yellow Color

Buttery Yellow Kitchen
Old-fashioned looks, such as the embossed stainless steel above the range and the beaded-board ceiling and island base, form the basis for a warm and inviting intimacy in this period-inspired kitchen. But it's the buttery yellow paint that makes this kitchen a standout .

Sunny Yellow Kitchen
Instead of replacing the cabinets to get a new look, paint does the trick here. The cabinets were sanded, coated with an oil-base primer, and finished with two coats of semigloss latex enamel. The color brightens the room, and the enamel finish is easy to clean. Open shelves make a perfect spot for displaying ironware. Sheathing the island in white beaded-board paneling makes it a gracious focal point in a warm, homey room .

Double Color Kitchen Cabinets
Despite the presence of an eight-burner range and stainless-steel hood sized to match, this pro-amenity-packed kitchen presents an old-fashioned cheeriness thanks to a yellow-and-white color palette. Upper cabinets are white with yellow interiors (all the better to display contents). Lower cabinets combine white face frames and yellow center panels. Yellow marble sheaths the baking center's countertop, while butcher block adds its own warm glow to work stations elsewhere in the room .

Dramatic Yellow Kitchen
Brilliant yellow cabinets give this classic kitchen a charisma, especially when paired with a backsplash that features tiles with a yellow harlequin pattern that dances from side to side. Upper cabinets boast natural wood construction, with specialty glass inserts that partially obscure the pretty green and white dishes on display. Black granite countertops add drama, while a wide-planked hardwood floor offers an heirloom sensibility to a clearly contemporary room .

Pale Yellow Cottage Kitchen
Dark wood countertops add a dramatic touch in a kitchen that's sheathed in pale yellow. Almost a neutral, the yellow paint allows the texture of the beaded-board paneling to play a major role in the kitchen's design. Strongly veined marble adds an organic presence to a room ruled by lines. Above the sink, a vibrant painting draws together the room's colors with dabs of red and green that make it a focal point .

Traditional Yellow Kitchen
Everything in this kitchen says traditional, from the furniture-style cabinets to the toile wallpaper and white ironware on display in open shelves. Yellow paint allows the cabinet details to shine: elaborate crown molding, raised panel doors and drawer fronts, and faux muntins over seeded glass insets. The island, which resembles an antique desk, anchors the room with its rich wood construction. A red-patterned Oriental rug calls attention to the red figures in the toile while offering a splash of color on the floor .

Kitchen with Yellow Tile
Rich, earthy colors accentuate this kitchen's unfitted English farmhouse feel. Buttery-yellow beveled-brick tiles comprise a backsplash that stretches from countertop to crown molding, creating a warm backdrop for barely gray Shaker-style cabinets. Woven area rugs soften pine floors, while handsome striped fabrics dress the windows. Bright yellow seat cushions pop against a green-painted island topped with zinc; the island makes the large kitchen's work triangle manageable .

Arts and Crafts-Style Kitchen
This cozy kitchen combines yellow-painted cabinetry, white subway tiles, and a white farm sink to create a charming early-20th-century persona. Mission-style shelves mounted on sturdy corbels work well for displaying colorful vintage pottery, which pops against pale yellow walls .

Soft yellow walls and pastel green cabinets with the look of age partner beautifully in this cottage-style kitchen. The cabinets feature beaded-board detailing, turned legs on the peninsula, and added molding to the door and drawer fronts. Tone-on-tone mosaic tiles create a beautiful beige backsplash that melts into the beige granite countertop. Brown barstools and an oil-rubbed bronze faucet offer dramatic darks against the mostly pastel background .

Warm and casual, these yellow-painted cabinets feature a softness of hue that allows them to stretch from floor to ceiling without overwhelming the observer. Brown granite countertops and hardwood floor temper the yellow with earthy tones. Bronze hardware marries the two colors with simple round shapes. Displaying a collection of brown and cream-color pottery with organic motifs adds interest without clashing with the primary color

Fireplace Decorating Design Ideas 2011 From Candice Olson

Natural Beauty

A soaring stone fireplace is an impressive and rustic focal point in this living room. To reduce the scale of the stone and add interest, a long mirror is placed above the mantel. Candice also uses the fireplace as a jumping off point for the room's palette, by selecting the hues of sage, stone, taupe and caramel from the fireplace stones.

Raise It Up

A sleek stainless steel gas fireplace is installed at the perfect height to enjoy from anywhere in the space. Surrounded by a beautiful stone facade, the fireplace is the perfect combination of contemporary and natural.

Illusion of Grandeur

Paint the wall over the mantel the same color as the surround to give a fireplace more presence in a room. When a fireplace is flush with the floor, place a beautiful screen in front to provide ambience and safety.

Striking Focal Point

Floor-to-ceiling glass and marble mosaic tiles in brown, gold, cream and grey tones are a spectacular setting for an elevated gas fireplace. The contemporary focal point adds both visual and physical warmth to the room.

Classic Centerpiece

Sophisticated moldings are combined with a marble-tiled surround for a traditional fireplace. To allow the space to be a conversational area as well as a space to watch television, Candice hides a television behind a piece of remote-controlled artwork so it's out of sight when not in use.

Pure Luxury

A simply elegant fireplace surround is painted cream to offset the dark wallpaper in the dining room. Raised off the floor, the visual warmth of the fireplace can be enjoyed from each seat around the table. The fireplace is also flanked with mirrored panels that add depth and dimension, as well as reflect light into the room.

Contemporary and Streamlined

The show-stopping feature wall is a modern arrangement that boasts a long, linear gas fireplace and a massive surround of grey and white marble mosaic tiles. Not only is it eye-catching, but it brings much-needed warmth into the space. The fireplace is flanked with a custom-built cabinetry unit that holds a big-screen television, media equipment, books and some display items.

Crowning Jewel

A true glam centerpiece of the room — the fireplace surround is covered with silver dollar-sized stainless steel tiles and above the mantel is a glittering ebony quartz.

Cozy Gathering Spot

The fireplace, which features a wood mantel and is clad in a beautiful circular glass tiles, anchors the room. Traditional beadboard panels above the fireplace add texture.

Loft Interior Design | The Rounded Loft | Prague | Czech Republic |A1 Architects

The issue of „boundless“ space became the main motif of our work. The private spaces such as bedrooms are ofcourse separated, but the rest of common activities rooms are connected within one fluent space. It starts at the entrance hall with dressing wardrobes and slightly continues towards living space and kitchen with large dining table, the space is also opened to upper gallery which is meant for guests.

To reach specific fluency of space we decided to round off some of the interior corners, which finally give the space its unique smooth character. Due to these softened corners one moves and feel simply free and the bounderies of walls somehow disappears.

Windows Curtains Design Ideas 2011 Photo Gallery

The curtains or blinds of a window can make or break the interior design of any site, whether home, office or even a restaurant. Curtains and blinds can make homes look sophisticated and comfortable feel. It is thus important that people have an understanding of the importance of choosing the right curtains or blinds for your windows.

To get the perfect curtain, you need to take hold of the fundamentals of bay windows. First things first, how did exactly the windows get its curve? A bay window is basically a set of three windows that had been joined together to form one big view.

The windows are set in an angle to form a concave, or a shallow opening space. When you have intended to initially include a window in the original plan of the house, architects usually place the angle at thirty to forty degrees, which could trick the eye to make the room look spacious and bigger.

The opening that the bay window creates allows more fresh air and light to come into the house. If you prefer to utilize the rest of the lot area for gardening, a bay window could be the perfect spot where you could relax your mind, drink coffee, read a book, or just to take a good look at your greens .
