Red Brick Colonial Exterior and Front Yard

This red brick Colonial home has oh-so-handsome curb appeal with its crisp, white trim and green front lawn. Matching planters welcome visitors at the beginning of the walkway.

Foyer With Geometric Painted Floor

To make the pattern last in this high-traffic zone, the designers used high-gloss airport runway paint. The contrast of the dark purple against the white background turns a simple pattern into a dramatic style statement.

Black and Gold Console Table and Art

A slim, glossy walnut console with gilded accents and a large abstract painting help ground the foyer and its exciting floor.

Foyer With Painted Geometric White Floor

From above, the painted floor and its fun pattern sings out and makes a trip down the stairs all the more exciting.

White Foyer With Painted Geometric Floor

Look out below! The entry of this stylish home was jazzed up with a crisp, geometric pattern painted on the floor in white and eggplant purple. The high-gloss finish is a durable choice for the high-traffic area.

Blue and Purple Transitional Family Room With Gold Mirror

The family room was set up to be an open, highly functional space. Graphic patterns in rich, dark blues and purples freshen up its traditional design base; gold accents bring a subtle luxe sheen.

Transitional Family Room With Striped Ottoman

Above the fireplace in the family room is a custom ceramic tile backsplash designed by artist Walker Zanger. It's a pretty backdrop for the gold mirror.

Gold Custom Etagere Shelf

These beautiful étagères were custom-designed to fit perfectly within matching niches beside the family room fireplace.

Family Room With Blue Patterned Curtains

Dark blue and purple in a mix of splashy patterns fill the family room with color and visual interest.

Multicolored Contemporary Living Room With Zebra Rug

In this family room, a bold zebra print rug is paired with plush upholstery in navy and chartreuse to create a fun, adventurous space for everyday living. Walls and window dressings are kept neutral to anchor the wild patterns.

Transitional Living Room With Green Armchair

To mix and match patterns, choose a few colors to anchor the look, then go wild. Here, blue, green and purple are the base for zebra prints, checks and stripes.

Dining Room Renovated to Flow Into Adjacent Living Space

Designer Marci Barnes removed the walls that originally enclosed this dining area, opening the space up to be part of the kitchen and flow easily into the adjacent living space. Chic, contemporary dining chairs with nailhead trim and a geometric dining table base add a modern punch to an otherwise traditional space.

Traditional Kitchen With Pearl-Finish Backsplash and Contemporary Barstools

A dramatic, pearl-finish backsplash and contemporary stools modernize this renovated traditional kitchen for fashion-forward homeowners, packing it with charm and interest. Designer Marci Barnes expanded the original kitchen footprint and opened up the room to the dining area and attached sunroom to further update the space.

White Traditional Dining Room With Chandelier

In the winter wonderland of a formal dining room, purple velvet is an imaginative twist on the back of the white dining chairs.

White Traditional Dining Room With Wallpaper

The formal dining room has the frosty elegance of an ice palace with its silver-and-white wallpaper and glittering crystal chandelier. Because this room is the least-used room in the home, the choice for a white palette was less scary.

Purple Small Library With Window Seat

The jewel box of a library is another example of how stunning and cozy a dark wall color can look in a small space. Here, eggplant purple gives the room the rich warmth of a velvet throw.

Red Powder Bathroom With Wallpaper

The bathroom can be the perfect place to try out a bold color or pattern (or, heck, both!). In a small space, like this powder room, it can have a dramatic, surprisingly intimate effect.

Blue Transitional Sitting Room With Striped Pillows

The sunroom is sweetly inviting with shades of pale blue and fun patterned accent pillows. The neutral roman shades, sofa and armchairs are a nice blank canvas for the layers of color and personality on top.

Blue and White Cottage Living Room With Striped Chair

This pretty sitting room mixes many different patterns, but because they're all within a similar color palette (blue, green and white) the look is intriguing, not jarring. The neutral rug acts as a restful anchor.

White Transitional Living Room With Purple Lamp

Pops of gold and plum purple wake up the white foundation of the formal living room, adding personality and warmth. Hanging the curtains several inches above the window emphasizes the room's high ceiling.

Neutral Transitional Living Room With Gold Mirror

A few rich colors—gold, purple, dark pink—masterfully give this living room polish and sophistication. It's a prime example of the comfortable glamour the designers strived for in the home.

Neutral Transitional Living Room With Striped Pillow

Add visual interest to a neutral space by mixing patterns in neutral hues. Here, several different prints on the pillows, armchair and even the curtain trim liven up the living room.

White Master Bathroom With Gold Mirror

The master bathroom is all about calmness and serenity. The crisp white harmonizes with the warm gold tones of the mirrors and tile backsplash. The crowning touch? An exquisite shell chandelier.

Gray Master Bedroom With Pink Accents

The design goal for the master bedroom: Create a dramatic, warm room where husband and wife can both relax. Gray is a sophisticated neutral choice for the space, accented by whites and unexpected pops of fuchsia.

Gray Transitional Master Bedroom With Pink Art

Want a fresh, grown-up neutral: Go gray! This bedroom layers on gold and fuchsia pink for a luxurious, modern look. Flat white linens and lampshades gives a crisp, clean finish.

Gray Transitional Master Bedroom With Gold Mirror

A beautiful round gold mirror and crystal lamps bring Art Deco-glamour to this gray bedroom. Accents of hot pink are a bright, sassy addition.

Small Media Room With Gold Chandelier

The master bedroom also includes a petite media room, like a mini private movie theater. The fireplace cozies it up, the golden chandelier brings a decadent luxe touch.
