"Lighting is vital to any good design and it's definitely worth the splurge when it comes to your bathrooms. Whether it's a cozy powder bath for visiting guests or a large master suite where you prepare yourself for the day that lies ahead, lighting can dramatically enhance both mood and function. I love uniting the warm glow of natural light with the brilliance of sophisticated chandeliers, sconces and recessed lighting to ensure that a bathroom is ready to dazzle at any hour of the day," says designer Marie Flanigan.
A built-in desk makes a dramatic emerald green statement and adds much-needed storage in this contemporary home office. The leather desk chair swings around to a Lucite desk, which adds extra workspace without taking up any visual weight in the room.
A comfy sofa and pair of white armchairs create an intimate seating area with an inviting ambiance in this white transitional living room. Tall arched windows fill the space with light and make the small space feel bigger than it is.
Dark gray bedding on a white upholstered bed makes a chic impression in this contemporary bedroom. Olive green nightstands bring in a hint of dimension while staying within the serene, neutral palette.
Making the most of the large master bedroom space, the area next to the windows is transformed into a comfortable sitting area. It's the perfect spot for watching TV and reading a book. Creamy curtains are hung high on the wall to match the scale of the room, while an area rug defines the space.
Clean white cabinets are paired with European-inspired bar pulls for a elegant, contemporary look. A bold punch of color comes from the stylish, functional island, which provides prep space and eat-in dining.
Since the master bedroom features sweeping ceilings, the elegant curtains are hung high on the wall to match the scale of the room. Comfortable chairs are arranged for TV watching and with lots of natural light and floor lamps for reading.
Designers wanted to make sure the kitchen had plenty of counter space and seating, so they installed a large kitchen island with a built-in sink and seating for four.
The room's architecture is balanced by organic textures in a soothing color palette. An upholstered headboard in rich green makes a statement in this mostly neutral space, while swing-arm lights add a unique touch to the room. A pair of chaise lounges make for an elegant sitting area with lots of natural light.
The large island in this transitional kitchen makes an attractive option for casual dining. Black barstools provide welcome contrast to the richly veined white marble that makes up the island's waterfall countertop and matching range backsplash.
