Transitional White Living Room Is Light, Airy

In the neutral setting of this living room, pops of visual interest are brought in through patterned accent pillows and ottomans. The wood cocktail table adds a natural element to the comfortable and airy space.

Neutral Transitional Living Room With Twin Armchairs

A cheery surprise awaits in this neutral living room: One of the shelf's cubbies is painted a soft sunshine yellow. In the rest of the room, varying neutral shades pair with natural elements (wood floors and coffee tables) to create an airy, comfortable feel.

Tabletop Vignette With Orchid and White Tray

Use a tray to corral otherwise unconnected accessories into an organized and elegant tabletop vignette. Here, the color white further unifies the grouping.

Contemporary White Armchair and Tan Curtains

Tan and white create a crisp contrast for this stylish sitting area. The colorful artwork above the wide armchair brings in soft color, while the graphic pillows tie the space together.

Gold and Silver Entry With Metallic Console Table

In a small space, a boldly patterned wallpaper can provide major wow factor as seen in this entryway. The gold and silver metallics on the wall are echoed in the console table and accessories.

Tabletop Vignette With Tulips and Vases

A collection of simple accessories—vases, books, fresh flowers—makes for an elegant, stylish tabletop vignette.

Contemporary White Kitchen With Industrial Barstools

An all-white kitchen is as crisp as it gets. Globe-shaped pendant lights and wood barstools introduce an element of softness to the space.

Contemporary Dining Room With Walnut Dining Table

This contemporary dining room features a neutral palette of gray and gold. The live edge walnut table adds a natural element to the space, yet its stainless steel legs maintain a contemporary feel. The gray and tan print of the chairs provides a welcome graphic pop.

Neutral Transitional Bedroom With Sheer Curtains

Sheer curtains wrap around this elegant transitional bedroom providing privacy without blocking natural light. Furnishings are kept simple and neutral, with a gentle pop of color coming from the blue accent pillows on the bed.

Transitional Blue Bedroom With Upholstered Headboard

A tall upholstered headboard with nailhead trim ups the elegance of this transitional bedroom. Matching white dressers serve as nightstands, and pops of blue throughout the decor tie in the soothing wall color.

Contemporary Living Room With Cozy Sectional

Although this living room isn't huge, a wraparound sectional provides plenty of seating and a stylish conversational area. A colorful zigzag rug brings graphic pizzazz to the space.
