Contemporary Rustic Great Room With Firewood

The great room has the expansive feel of a cathedral and is filled with the same whimsically rustic style seen throughout the home. A bright yellow faux stag's head presides above the fireplace; a black X marks the spot in the center of the wood dining table.

Eclectic Living Room With Stacked Firewood

An eclectic mix of furniture fills the living room with personality. Huge cutouts in the wall near the fireplace turn stacked firewood into a striking visual display.

Neutral Rustic Contemporary Living Room With Red Rug

The living room takes on a global feel, with patterned pillows in black and neutral and a sprinkling of exotic accessories. A rug with blocks of red livens up the neutral space.

Rustic Open Plan Kitchen With Exposed Beams

The beautiful open plan kitchen keeps a neutral palette, but adds visual interest via unusual shapes and textures. The barstools echo coiled springs; the vaulted ceiling displays an underside of mixed wood exposed beams.

Eclectic Dining Room With Black Chairs

The dining room's enormous square table comfortably seats 12, the black leather dining chairs matching up with the bold X crisscrossing the tabletop. Overhead, an industrial chandelier sheds light on the scene.

Home Office With Striped Wallpaper

Brown and black-striped wallpaper gives dramatic flair to this workspace, especially when paired with the open shelves full of interesting accessories and artifacts. Positioned directly in front of the window, the desk takes full advantage of the view.

Rustic Attic Bedroom With Butterfly Chair

The sloped ceiling, textured wallcovering and platform beds of this attic bedroom evoke the feeling of sleeping in a tent, an especially luxurious one. Between the beds, open shelving stores books and displays colorful accessories. A butterfly chair takes advantage of the big window and pretty view.

Brown Bedroom With Swing Chair

A vintage game hung on the wall provides a splash of color in this dark brown bedroom. That whimsical tone is echoed by the bench suspended from the ceiling like a trapeze swing.

Contemporary Country Bathroom With Neon Sign

Chicken wire and metal make for a kitschy cool cabinet to store extra linens and supplies in the bathroom. A vintage sign with neon red lights is an energizing finishing touch.

White Rustic Bedroom With Antlers

The bed tucks neatly into a niche between two stacks of built-in shelves in this bedroom, a neat design move that saves floor space. Faux fur pillows, a rustic wood bench and antlers mounted above the bed all nod to the home's Lake Tahoe location.
