Colorful Foyer With Feather Mural

An eggplant-purple door welcomes guests into the foyer of this four-story row house. Along the wall, a feather mural shifts from pastel to saturated hues, reflecting the different colors found throughout the home. 

Purple Console Table and Mirror

A darling purple table with graphic artwork adds another pop of color to the foyer.

Curry-Colored Sofa Adds Warmth to Parlor

Using the owl gray walls and traditional architecture as a base, the curry-colored sofa adds warmth and vibrancy to the parlor. Above the fireplace, a streetscape of Brooklyn pulls all the colors and details together. 

Sofa and Curtains Create Structure In Parlor

Set against floor-to-ceiling windows and gorgeous stirped curtains, the curry-colored sofa adds structure to this eclectic sitting room. Overhead, a crystal chandelier ensures that the parlor retains its sense of period. 

Dining Room With Tree-Covered Wallpaper

Moving from parlor to dining room, the color palette shifts to pink and gray. In this space, an oval table with Herman Miller chairs sits center stage, while wallpaper with a ghostly tree design alludes to the rich folklore of Savannah.

Modern China Cabinets Add Symmetry to Dining Room

On the opposite end of the dining room, two modern china cabinets anchor the space. The back of the cabinets have been painted fuschia for an additional colorful surprise. 

Contemporary Kitchen With Marble Wall

With sleek surfaces and modern appliances, this contemporary kitchen creates a beautiful contrast with the rest of the home. A mix of patterns and materials adds visual interest to the room.

Powder Room With Gray and Yellow Feather Wallpaper

In the powder room at the end of the hall, gray and yellow wallpaper offers an instant graphic. The feather pattern connects this room to the mural in the foyer. 

Barn-Style Sliding Doors

An office gets a chic and innovative upgrade with a sliding barn-style door, creating a sense of flow between rooms.

Watercolor Stairwell Leads to Second Floor

Ascending the brass staircase to the second floor, the watercolor wallpaper dissipates and gives way to a soothing white hallway. 

Elegant English-Modern Master Suite

On the second level, an English-modern master suite provides a place of comfort and peace. The cool blue and white tones keep the space simple, while the chandelier adds a touch of elegance.

Master Bath With Wood-Paneled Tub

A set of double doors leads into the master bathroom. The wood-paneled side of the tub ties in with the hardwood floors of the bedroom, unifying the two spaces.

Master Bathroom With Wood Vanity

A mix of neutral tones and clean, crisp lines turn this master bathroom into a tailored, peaceful oasis. The floors and shower walls add welcome texture to break up the many smooth surfaces.

Neutral Double-Vanity With Vessel Sinks

White vessel sinks bring contemporary polish to this neutral bathroom with its beautiful marble backsplash and floor.

Spacious Sitting Room With Vintage Sofa

In the next room, a vintage sofa provides a comfortable place to lounge and read. Glass doors on either side of the sofa lead onto the deck, making it easy to move outside when the weather is inviting.

Serene Sitting Room Features Vintage Details

Calming shades of blue and green add color to this serene sitting room off the master suite. The varied textures and patterns of the furniture, artwork and even the chandelier help create visual interest.

Urban Deck With String Lights

A small urban deck becomes a charming outdoor area with the addition of string lights and comfortable, chic seating.

Laundry Room With Wood Floors

This generously sized laundry room includes a sink, washer and dryer, and ample countertop room for folding and organizing. A window provides lovely natural light.

Pale Blue Walls Create Heavenly Hallway

White-painted wood floors and pale blue walls create a heavenly effect on the third floor. Moving along the hallway evokes the idea of walking on clouds.

White Transitional Bedroom With Zebra Art

In this bedroom, the all-white palette is given contemporary crispness with accents of black and turquoise blue.

Black and White Contemporary Bedroom

Graphic patterns and a punchy palette of black, white and blue make a striking visual statement in this bedroom. Traditional underpinnings like the chandelier and fireplace are jazzed up with the crisp lines and bold color scheme.

Canopy Bed in Contemporary Black and White Bedroom

Graphic black and white patterns take this bedroom in a bold and dramatic direction. Pops of pale blue break up the monochromatic scheme.

Sage Green Bedroom Features Blue Rug

Where the other bedroom is bright and bold, this sage green room is calm and soothing. A wallpapered accent wall adds a vintage touch to the space, while an ocean-blue rug anchors the room in place.

Sweet Metal Bed in Sage Green Bedroom

A sweet metal bed brings shabby-chic charm to this sage green bedroom. The mixed-pattern throw pillows and vintage mirrors are the perfect accents.

Patterned Wallpaper Offers Vintage Charm

A series of mirrors in different shapes helps brighten the bedroom, while the patterned wallpaper adds a touch of vintage charm. 

Gold Mirror Adds Old World Glamour to Bathroom

Ornate gold embellishments on this bathroom's mirror bring a touch of old world glamour to the sophisticated gray-and-white space.
