GHID’s Top 5 Bathroom Designs

Over the years, Garrison Hullinger has built up an extensive portfolio of home interior designs. You’ve fawned over the lavish bedrooms, the vast kitchens, and the cozy living rooms, but today we are going to cover something that may be under-appreciated; the bathrooms! In this post, we will be showcasing our 5 favorite home bathrooms that we have designed!

Stonehenge Terrace’s Elegant White Bathroom

This gorgeous master bathroom is in our Stonehenge Terrace project. The goal was to make the bathroom feel like a spa, and that was completely accomplished! The white cabinet, and luxurious tile and marble throughout give the feeling of being pampered, and the wooden doors feel like you are being led into a private spa room to be relaxed!

Stylish Luxury in American Spirit’s Master Bathroom

The rest of the American Spirit project was designed for year-round entertainment. The lavish master bathroom may not be designed for entertainment but it is definitely designed to be enjoyed and appreciated. The detailed cabinetry frames the vanity, and the expansive shower is a gorgeous sight and the owners will certainly never find themselves wanting more space in there!

Soft Pastels in Camelia Court

Taking a turn from the usual style GHID uses, the Camelia Court project features a bathroom with subdued pastels. This room is smaller and simpler, but packed with details that make this bathroom cozy, bright, and very functional, all while looking stylish.

Natural Tones in Danish Luxe Revival

The master bathroom in GHID’s Danish Luxe Revival project brings in natural tones and patterns to make a warm and comfortable bathroom. Foregoing clean white lines from other projects, this bathroom’s highlights are its stonework surrounding the vanity and the details of its nature-themed accessories, like the tree on the wall and the green stool.

We hope you loved our bathrooms as much as we do! Maybe it is time to take a look at your own bathrooms and see if they keep up with the design in the rest of you home. Happy designing!

GHID’s Top 5 Kitchen Designs

Many people’s favorite room in the house is the kitchen. When looking for a house, a bad kitchen can be a deal-breaker. Regardless of how much time you may spend in the kitchen, you want it to be everything you need when you do need it. At Garrison Hullinger Interior Design we believe that the kitchen should be a centerpiece of the design, and we take great pride in our kitchens. Today we’ll be sharing some favorites, and talking about what makes them so great! Let us know if you agree, and what your favorite kitchen features are.

This kitchen is an eye catcher! With two massive islands, this can become the ultimate entertainment space, without letting the host get lost in the kitchen preparing food. The outside edges of the kitchen become part of the event, welcoming guests just as much as the black and white contrast between countertop and cabinet, and the ceiling that draws your eye upward. Lots of light sources, and glass upper cabinets make the space feel open and light,

Not too big and not too small, this kitchen has all the right comforts. It has a cozy aesthetic, combining white cabinetry with darker wood colors on the floor and island. Natural tones shine in this space, and the stainless steel appliances are unobtrusive enough that nature is still the focal point! The bar island is perfectly placed for entertainment or just a family meal!

With an emphasis on storage and open space, this kitchen seems simple but is very effective. It once again draws on the contrast between dark flooring and white cabinetry, and provides more than enough storage for any kitchen needs! Massive open area between counters makes navigating this kitchen with multiple chefs an easy task. The huge curved island allows for entertainment to happen at the fringes of the kitchen space with plenty of room left over for preparing food.

We feature this kitchen on our home page for a reason! It is a stunning white kitchen that is both cozy and wide open. It has somewhat of a farmhouse style, which is modernized with white cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Subtle hints allude to a more classic inspiration, whether that be in the lighting fixtures, the bar stools, or the legs of the island. Multiple large windows let in plenty of light, meaning any cooking experience in this kitchen is refreshing and well-lit!

There is an interesting contrast of white and darker brown woods, but it all works together. This kitchen is all about using different materials and tones together and still having it work. Look at the white cabinetry, the darker cabinetry, the flooring, the backsplash tile, and the granite countertop. They are all quite different materials and colors, but somehow they all work together cohesively and are referenced throughout the kitchen.

GHID’s Top 5 Living Room Designs

The living room is one of the most crucial rooms in the house. It is where relaxation happens, social events occur, and where there are the most design possibilities! Today on the Garrison Hullinger Interior Design blog we will be showcasing our 5 favorite and most iconic living room designs to date! We hope you agree with us when we say these are living rooms we would want to lounge in!

1. Modern Style in Sandhill Crane

The living room of GHID’s Sandhill Crane project is excellent for entertainment, and expertly balances modern with traditional styles. Massive windows help bathe the room in refreshing light, highlighting the pops of texture and color arrayed around the space. This room is a great area to relax and watch some television, or warm up by the modern linear gas fireplace.

2. Elegant and Vibrant Comfort in Raleigh Park

Raleigh Park, features an interesting design scheme, in which a traditional-style house is filled with extremely interesting and unique pieces of furniture with eye-catching colors and textures. The living room is one of the best rooms in the house for showcasing this style, and it is done in a relatively small and cozy space! Warm colors give the living room a comfortable feel. Helped along by the natural patterns and textures on the chairs and table, as well as the plants above the fireplace.

3. Rustic and Elegant Join Together in Trillium

The living room in the Trillium project is the ultimate marriage of rustic and elegant, to form a room that feels as much like a log cabin as a 5-star hotel lobby. The furniture’s curved and rounded elements stand in stark contrast to the brick fireplace and strong wood beams, yet they all go great together! The expansive ceilings make this space feel wide open and massive, but the warm colors used make the room feel warm and cozy despite the open space. This easily makes our top 5 living rooms, just for its ability to feel both large and cozy at the same time.

4. A Chic Waterfront Apartment Living Space

Just because you live in an apartment or condo doesn’t mean that you can’t have a gorgeous living room! That was proven in this Garrison Hullinger project, in which a ton of personality and flavor was packed into a small space. Pops of vibrant color are splashed all over in a tasteful way. Additionally, for such a small space, there is plenty of seating for multiple people, a ton of versatile surface space, and a lot of bright light streaming in through the floor to ceiling windows.

5. Cozy Charm and Tranquility in Danish Luxe Revival

When we called some of our previous living rooms cozy, we meant it. However, the prize for coziest GHID living room probably goes to the Danish Luxe Revival project. The roaring fireplace with seating room is comfortable-looking enough, but the oversize chairs and view outdoors into a wooded area provide a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Just imagine sinking into one of those chairs this winter, warming up by the fireplace and watching the snow fall into the trees outside! This living room also gets points for making the television subtle in the design, so as to not take away from the natural and rustic nature of the room.

Project Showcase: Hub 9

Garrison Hullinger Interior Design works on more than just residential homes! Hub 9 is the first of three multi-use projects at Orenco Station just outside of Portland,┬ádesigned by GHID. All of the interiors of the building, and two model units, were designed by us, and we see it as a shining example of GHID’s ability to be versatile in its design! Hub 9 has some unique features and great design schemes, which we will be showcasing today!

A Lobby Worth Relaxing In

The first impression of any apartment building or other multi-use building is the lobby. The lobby of Hub 9 is welcoming and comfortable, with plenty of places to sit. It also features a double-sided fireplace to make this space feel warm and inviting right when you walk in. Elsewhere in the lobby, there are plenty of lounge areas separated by draping Cascade Coil drapery, which double as walls and decor!

A Rope Room? Yes, a Rope Room!

“A rope room?” you’re probably asking yourself. Yes, really, a rope room. And we’re not talking about a rope-climbing gym either. This is a lounge area in which the main decorations are ropes dangling from the ceiling! It may sound a little off, but it gives the room a very unique texture, as well as the ability to weave interesting shapes with the wall, making it both functional and artistic! Also, this rope room designed by Garrison Hullinger Interior Design is the only such room in the Pacific Northwest!

Consistent Design in Model Units

The model apartment units that GHID designed for Hub 9 were designed to be unique, vibrant, and fresh, just like the rest of the building. As you can see, we kept the commons themes of boxy furniture with thin legs, as well as the juxtaposition of primary colors layered over earth tones. The spaces feel young and hip, just like the apartments are supposed to be in this part of town! As with any small space like an apartment, managing space can be difficult. In this case, Garrison Hullinger Interior Design balanced more open spaces like the kitchen with more busy areas like shelves and walls.

A Great Room Where “Great” is an Understatement

The great room in Hub 9 is a massive space with vaulted ceilings and tall windows. Smaller spaces like a wine tasting room and a gym branch off of the room, offering more services to the residents. Also included is a kitchen and an indoor/outdoor fireplace, which gives residents comfort both inside and outside the building itself. Comfort and access to amenities are key in this huge space, and everything someone could want in an apartment building is all here. Additionally, the room has a lot of unique and colorful pieces in it, continuing that young and hip feel!
