Retro Bathroom With Double Vanity, Gray Marble Tile Backsplash and Green Accents

Green pattern decorations accentuate the retro influence in this bathroom design. A double vanity set up features his and hers gray sinks, mirror medicine cabinets and a distressed cabinet base. The small marble tiles of the backsplash compliment the floor tile. Green accents brighten the mood and look to finish off the design with a touch of fun.

Modern Bubble Chandelier Over Diamond Cut, Marble Countertop Island And Vertical Subway Tile Kitchen Backsplash

A vertical subway tile backsplash creates a less conventional movement in the room to elongate the look and add a touch of soft blue color to the room. A modern bubble chandelier is an airy light accessory over the kitchen island. The diamond shaped island features a bold marble countertop and barstools lined up for an eat-in set up.

Sophisticated Transitional Sitting Room Featuring Gray Marble Fireplace Surround and Traditional White Armchair

A gold fireplace trim pops against the sleek marble fireplace surround. A braided coffee table adds a textural element to the smooth finishes in the room. A white arm chair with skirt is decorated with a small palm tree throw pillow giving it a taste of tropical influence.

Double Island Kitchen With White Subway Tile Backsplash, Sleek White Countertop and Natural Wood Barstools

Using two smaller islands instead of one extra long one leaves additional open floor space for easy maneuvering through this spacious kitchen. A pair of pendant lights hangs over each island joined by a pair of natural wood barstools. A large subway tile backsplash creates a textured accent wall behind the white cabinetry.

Transitional Kitchen With Country Influence Showcasing Blue Cabinets, Blue Tinted Countertop and Sleek Light Woodgrain

Blue upper cabinetry brings a pop of color to the neutral room tones and compliments the blue tint in the countertop marbling. The soft woodgrain color of the cabinets keeps the room feeling light and matches the sleek look of the flooring and counters. Stainless steel appliances blends an updated feel with the country influence.

Mirror Door Armoires Framing Contemporary Dresser Creating Transitional Bedroom Storage Set Up

Mirror doors create an elegant armoire exterior to match the sophisticated transitional style of this bedroom. Matching armoires frame a gray and white dresser complimentary to the cool-tone gray walls. A gray toned hardwood floor fits beautifully with the color scheme.

Simple Contemporary Living Room

While the walls and major furniture pieces are kept neutral, the accent pillows and rug bring in some fun pops of color.

Extra Large White Tile Backsplash in Traditional Kitchen With Polished Gold Range Hood, Glass Door Cabinets and Island

Extra large white tile covers these kitchen walls stretching the backsplash throughout the room. A gold range hood shines in the light and draws the eye as a statement piece against the white fixtures. Glass doors lighten the look of built in cabinets.

Contemporary Bedroom With Bright Yellow Accent Wall

An accent wall covered in sunshine yellow gives this room the perfect amount of color. Modern floating nightstands add storage without compromising floor space, and a quatrefoil rug gives the space the contemporary touch that feels stylish and inviting.

Contemporary Bathroom With Soaker Tub

The deep navy walls bring focus to the light granite counters and oversized white soaker tub which pop against the dark color.

Chris, Erin, and their baby Sebastian have been living in Chris's native Australia.

She'd prefer a contemporary split-level; Chris loves all things modern, paired with rustic elements like exposed beams. Of utmost importance is finding an in-law suite for Chris's parents, who visit for months at a time from Australia. They have a max budget of $600,000 which includes buying furniture and any renovations the place might need. Once they agree on a home, renovations begin straightaway, since Chris's parents are coming to visit in only 9 weeks.
