Transitional Entryway With Custom Skirted Console Table

The colors used on walls, floors and fabrics along with unique design details are the key to updating the look of a traditional home. The console in this entry is covered with a custom skirt that features grommets that look like nail heads. Nails and tacks are used on wood and metal, but they are an uncommon addition on fabric. Additionally, the band accent incorporates curves in its design detail instead of straight lines. The mirror above the console has beautifully proportioned divisions in a mullion-like configuration around its perimeter. This edging adds both dimension and interest to the mirror, mirror on the wall.

Formal Living Room With Two-Story Window Treatments

This formal living room was once a hot room, and it was flooded with natural light due to its walls of two-story windows. While beautiful, the lack of solar control plus the intense brightness of the space made it hard to enjoy. The new coloration helps absorb light. Soft, fluffy fabrics and tall window treatments changed its feel and echo.

Formal Living Room With Gray Velvet Ottoman

The colors used on walls, floors and fabrics, along with unique design details, are the key to updating the look of a traditional home. This transitional living room features soft grays and neutrals that combine to create a light, sophisticated space.

Transitional Living Room With Framed Botanical Artwork

The flange on the sofa is on the outside of the seam, which is a design detail that helps modernize the seating. The stacked artwork configuration brings an updated feel to the set of botanicals.

Elegant Great Room With Sleek Fireplace

This great room’s ornate fireplace was replaced with a sleek hearth that complemented the room’s extremely high ceilings.

Cozy Library Seating With Cube Coffee Tables

In the library, comfortable seating and two cubes have flexibility and can be used as coffee tables or footrests.

Sophisticated Library With Silver Sunburst Mirror and Custom Nail-Head Trim Table

This corner is accented by a custom upholstered table and sparkling accessories. The silver mirror, lamp base and candelabra shine against the soft gray palette. The ottoman is stored under the table until it is needed.

Arched Library Niche With Small Folding Table

The home is filled with arches, which echo with the curves of many of the furniture pieces. In the library, an upholstered niche creates an inviting place where the room’s many books can be enjoyed. On the base of the niche, nail-head trim creates upscale detail. Sconces illuminate the small space.

Corner Seating With Gray Upholstery

The colors used on walls, floors and fabrics along with unique design details are the key to updating the look of a traditional home. This oddly shaped bench fits nice and snug into the corner of this transitional living space.

Transitional Master Bedroom With Canopy Bed and Striped, Tufted Ottomans

The master is a retreat that should empower both its masculine and feminine occupants. The railroaded stripes on the ottoman are more masculine, while the neutral floral throw pillows and metallic nightstand tend to be more feminine.

Dreamy Canopy Bed With Heathered Wool Duvet in Master Bedroom

The walls of the master are covered in grass cloth. The canopy of the bed is in the same fabric as the window treatments to keep things harmonious visually, while the duvet is made from heathered wool.

Cozy Master Bedroom With Velvet Daybed, Fireplace and Grass-Cloth Walls

The master is warmed by grass cloth on the walls and comfortable seating that says "stay here and enjoy the fire."

Peaceful Guest Bedroom With Unique Details

In secondary bedrooms, unique elements can be incorporated so every space radiates its own personality. These drapes have stacked dressmaker hems. The outside of the chair is upholstered in a contrasting fabric, while the bed's headboard echoes a wing chair.

Transitional Home Office With Fireplace Focal Point

The raw, rambling third floor had one well-sized room, but the rest of the space was a jungle of trusses and HVAC ducts. The designers turned that space into a home office, wet bar, two bedrooms, a full bath and an elevator lobby. Here, the largest room was transformed into a home office. To create a focal point, the bottom section of the ornate fireplace (originally in the great room) was placed on a wall that is flanked by bookcases. The fireplace is not functional, but it creates a handsome backdrop behind the homeowner’s desk.

Home Office Seating Area With Dormer Window

Seating in the home office is maximized so both family and employees can be comfortable. A dormer window allows natural light in to add warmth to the space.

Home Office Sitting Area With a Wet Bar

A wet bar is featured in the sitting area of the office. Its upper design is a function of the roofline, which gives it character without losing space.   

Oversized Dormer Window With Upholstered Daybed

To bring an interesting focal point to the guest bedroom, Pineapple House designers made a window seat and/or daybed in an oversized dormer window. The windows were so high that steps were added for access to the perch. Panels across the bottom of the built-in are created via thumbtacks in the upholstered base.

Attic Bedroom With Extended Upholstered Headboard

This updated attic now features two bedrooms where there were once windows. In this bedroom, a headboard sits below the angle of the wall and extends past the bed in both directions. It offers an attractive backdrop for a chest and a desk that flank the bed.
