An essential element in a teen bedroom -- a study area -- is commanded by this desk, crafted from pipes and reclaimed flooring. The desk is attached to the wall, providing ample shelving storage area without taking up a great deal of visual space. A custom radiator cabinet is a lovely way to update an older home while retaining some of the original charm.
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.
This nautical-themed teen bedroom brings together vintage and newfangled furniture and accessories, creating a space that feels interesting and contemporary. Unique items include the antique propeller above the twin bed, and the shelving unit made from pipes, ropes and reclaimed wood flooring. The striped wall provides a focal point, and adds a touch of fun and whimsy.
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.
The caramel tones in this kitchen -- from the cabinets to the floors -- add a comfortable air, creating a cozy space for cooking and conversation. The finishes create a fresh space that lends itself well to mixing furniture and window treatments, creating an overall traditional feel but with tailored lines and rustic features. The outcome: a space that has a transitional feel, perfect for all ages.
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.
A kitchen breakfast nook should be a refreshing place to start the day -- and this one doesn't disappoint! Striped cornice window treatments bring a brightness and whimsy. The circular rug makes the space feel contained and cozy. And flowers, as always, add cheer to a space.
There's nothing more cozy and inviting than an eat-in kitchen with breakfast nook. Here, dark woods are used in the nook as opposed to the light woods in the kitchen, creating a sense of a separate space -- but one that's still connected due to the matching chairs at the kitchen island. Striped windows in both spaces also create a unity.
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.
