Exposed whitewashed brick is the attractive backdrop for this powder room. Designers then layered in a wood vanity, pretty patterned tiles on the floor and a star-shaped pendant.
The beauty of a neutral space is its ability to morph quickly with a change of accessories -- in this case, grass-green towels and rug. And neutral doesn't have to mean boring -- touches such as the backsplash with circular tiles and a subway-tiled shower with cutout storage area make this bathroom quirky and unique.
The stylish decor in this expansive living space creates an atmosphere of warmth and creativity. Spark a conversation with friends while gazing out the large windows, which are accented with boldly striped curtains. Ample seating space is perfect for a gathering, and the gray tones of the sofas let the room's multicolor elements shine. Plants breathe life into the space, and a funky chandelier completes the look.
This dining room is the perfect place to entertain. Neutral colors and comfortable upholstered chairs set the stage for long and lively conversations over a delicious meal. Simple succulents give the space a natural feel, and modern art creates a conversation piece.
A simple and small bathroom becomes a spectacular space just by adding wallpaper that wows. Dark hardwood floors and white wainscoting feel traditional and grounded, allowing the patterned blue circles to play the starring role.
The soaking tub is the highlight of this black and white bathroom. With its updated brass faucet, the tub feels both traditional in appeal and unique and modern in comparison with the recent chrome and silver trend. A black ladder shelf holds towels, and a nearby black stool holds soap and decorative items. Black and white floor tile rounds out the classic but contemporary feel of the space.
Gallery walls can pack a powerful punch when thoughtfully created. Same-size frames make a wall chock-full of photos seem uncluttered, as does limiting the color of the photos to black and white. Arrangements of books and mementos — including some animal horns — give the space a nature-inspired feel. Plants atop the natural wood dresser add life to the area.
Outdoor furnishings as beautiful as their indoor counterparts make for a sophisticated but comfortable patio area. Red throw pillows look vibrant against the lush green lawn; the animal print ones add a playful punch pulled from nature. The pillows can be changed out with the seasons or on a whim for a completely different feel.
A large bathroom in shades of white and gray is anything but basic. Unique takes on classic bathroom elements — such as the spindle-legged vanity and hexagonal marble tile floors — create an extraordinary space. Adding a large soaking tub completes the spa-like experience.
Rich and luxe, this traditional living space uses contemporary elements -- such as the white chairs with hammered upholstery tacks -- to add an updated feel. Together with a vibrant zebra-print ottoman, bird painting and animal statues, the room feels rustic and alive.
High ceilings and expansive windows create a calming space that welcomes in the great outdoors. A simple but delightful dining table is surrounded by comfortable chairs; simple succulents on the table bring nature inside in a subtle way. Modern art is splashed throughout the room, adding elegance and color. A large staircase crowns the room, creating massive visual impact.
Small clusters of accessories stand out magnificently in an otherwise-monotone bathroom — or in any space! Try adding a colorful painting or a wood tray to a white or neutral room, and watch those elements shine.
An overstuffed plaid armchair is the perfect spot to cozy up with a good book in this rustic-meets-traditional living space. The addition of carefully selected photos and curiosities to the shelving unit creates interest and keeps the custom piece from feeling too stuffed with books. The light wood also unburdens the space.
This open living space derives its personality from a bright blue sofa and a funky animal-print bench. The room is crowned by a stunning staircase featuring sleek black metal railings. A hardwood table in the dining room seats several comfortably in simple upholstered chairs. Windows throughout the space keep the room light and glamorous.
What looks like a large living area is actually a playroom for the kids — but, obviously, one the parents can enjoy as well. Multiple colors create an area that feels inspirational and creative, perfect for drawing, playing games or doing puzzles together. A lengthy sectional sofa provides ample space for a family to curl up in front of a favorite movie.
