This cozy, blue living room brings together traditional and contemporary elements to create a style that's unique to the homeowner. Special elements include the shutter-shaped windows, granite fireplace surround and iron scroll piece used as art over the fireplace. The colorful painting is a bright and cheery punch of color.
Bold colors and patterns, mixed with white & creams, create a fresh and casual feel in this living room. A large L-shaped sofa makes it easy for the family to enjoy the fire or the big game.
Surprise! Extra counter space, shelf space and a wine refrigerator are tucked in this kitchen's pantry. This strategy is a great way to bring additional functionality to a room without adding clutter to the space. And who doesn't want fewer appliances on a primary countertop?
Ruffled curtains create a special hideaway space in this sunny teen bedroom. The window seat behind the curtain is upholstered in a jewel-toned floral fabric; a pretty chandelier above makes this a perfect spot to curl up with a good book or game. Nearby shelves ensure a teddy bear is always within an arm's reach.
A unique backsplash is always a favorite element in a kitchen -- and this diamond-shaped tile one fits the bill. Just above, a modern-feeling stainless steel range hood acts as a crown for the backsplash, bringing even more attention to the design element. Granite countertops coordinate and complement the walls.
It's easy for a top-floor room with sloped ceilings to feel cluttered -- and it can be tough to find furniture that fits the height of the walls. Built-in dressers on either side of the twin bed solve these problems. They're a perfect scale for the space and allow the teen room to feel clean and neat.
An L-shaped sofa frames in the conversation area in this transitional living room, where a colorful striped rug adds graphic energy. Dark blue walls are a rich and unique neutral backdrop for the space.
The fireplace — a rare design element in a breakfast nook — brings a homeyness and warmth to this family eating space. Different shades of green are used throughout the room to emphasize and repeat the bold color choice. Multiple tones of wood are grounding and traditional; the unique chandelier adds a striking modern flair.
A play of dark and light colors with bold accents was used throughout this contemporary living room. Charcoal walls and dark floors were brightened up with cream rugs and white trim. Autumn and crimson accents were used to bring bold color to the space, and custom furnishings were made to fit the scale of the room.
