Cottage Neutral Living Room With Green Curtains

Soft neutral shades punctuated with accents of blue and green make the living room an inviting space to relax in. Instead of a mantel, this older home has wood paneling and pretty molding around the fireplace.

Cottage Living Room With Plaid Ottoman

This Tudor home in Dallas was built in the 1920s by Herbert Marcus, father of Stanley Marcus, one of the founders of the luxury department store Neiman Marcus. Its recent renovation worked hard to respect its beautiful original details as well as outfit it with modern comforts.

Living Room Leather Sofa and End Table

An end table with simple, clean lines is a good pairing with the more imposing feel of this living room's leather sofa.

Neutral Cottage Powder Room With Pewter Sink

The powder room is a lovely nod to this home's historical Tudor roots. An antique wood table was turned into a charming vanity with the addition of a pewter vessel sink and bridge faucet. Patterned wallpaper is the perfect finishing touch.

White Cottage Home Office With Window Seat

Might as well write a Shakespeare-worthy play in this fetching Tudor-style home office, either curled up on the window seat or behind the handsome desk. The room mixes classic elements like the leaded windows with fresh accents like the pretty patterned pillows and desk chair.

Cottage Breakfast Nook With Cushions

A long banquette plays host to breakfast gatherings with its pretty patterned cushions and large windows. Underneath the bench, drawers make for handy hidden storage.

White Cottage Kitchen With Arched Entrance

During this 1920s home's renovation, the kitchen was opened up to the family room via this graceful arched doorway. The detail echoes the unique curved cabinets of the home's original architecture seen here in the kitchen and elsewhere throughout the house.

White Cottage Chef's Kitchen With Blue Backsplash

The gracious kitchen mixes pretty cottage style with Tudor details like the exposed beams and vintage-feeling pendants. To add a touch of color, a robin's egg blue was chosen for the backsplash and picked up again in the barstools.

Arched Door Entrance to Master Bath

The entrance to the master bath is through these amazing arched doors. Their finish is a soft dove gray, a nice contrast against the white walls.

Blue Traditional Master Bedroom With White Lamp

Pops of crisp white add a fresh, clean feel to the master bedroom, layered on top of pale blues and browns. An upholstered stool tucked under the bedside table lets a nightstand become a desk.

Master Bath With Gray and White Marble

This renovated master bath features a white Danby marble backsplash with gray marble contrasts, creating a classic, timeless feel. A sweet white vanity adds a friendly touch.

White Bathroom Vanity With Arch

The arch above the master bathroom's vanity replicates the arches seen throughout this historical Tudor-style home. It's a softening touch to the room's crisp, fresh feel.

White Tudor Spa Bathroom With Exposed Beams

In a nod to the home's Tudor style, the renovated master bathroom includes iron sconces and rustic ceiling beams that are a surprisingly fun juxtaposition with the room's luxurious marble. The vanity is nestled inside a gentle arch, another softening touch to the space.
