Designer Rebekah Zaveloff combines classic off-white cabinetry and Carrara marble countertops to design a traditional kitchen. White subway tile is used to create a backsplash, to cover the range hood and even above the cabinets for a cohesive look. She finishes the space with industrial pendant lights, glass-front cabinets and elegant hardware that lends a vintage feel.
The latest in technology allows homeowners to create their own personal spa. The mosaic-tiled shower features all the modern amenities, including body jets and a sound system, and also doubles as a steam shower. The soaking tub has a subtle waterfall wall and also includes a chromatherapy option. To top it all off, designer Christopher Grubb doesn't skimp on stunning architectural elements, like the coved ceiling and oversized window.

Islands aren't just for kitchens anymore. Designer Peter Ross Salerno adds storage and style to this large bathroom with a quarter-sawn island, but the true focal point is the antique-style tub nestled into the seven-window alcove. A natural stone floor is accentuated by a mosaic tile border, and beautiful moldings highlight all the architectural elements of the space.

Sometimes luxury is taking advantage of natural surroundings. For this bathroom design, Christopher Grubb keeps the space neutral and airy so as not to compete with the amazing view enjoyed from the bathtub. A double shower, cantilevered vanity and flat-screen TV make this the ultimate oasis.

Flanking Sub-Zero refrigerators are hidden behind cabinetry to fit in seamlessly with the custom cabinets. Design by Gail Drury
Inspired by colors of nature, designer Sarah Richardson uses mint-green mosaic tile to create a focal wall and covers the floor in a beautiful marble. Paneled walls and shutter-inspired cabinets give the space a charming cottage feel.
Mix different finishes to create interest and texture in the kitchen. A mahogany island top brings warmth to a mostly white kitchen, while a marble tile backsplash adds elegance and grandeur to the design. Cabinet panels are used to hide appliances, like the refrigerator and dish drawers. Design by Gail Drury
Calming hues and finishes are combined with modern elements, like the infinity-edge tub, for a true spa-like retreat. Zebrawood and painted maple are used to give the cabinetry the look of furniture, and wallpaper behind the vanity adds a glam touch.
Contemporary Rustic Kitchen
What's more luxurious than an island made completely of granite? The granite is also carried over into the countertops, which create contrast with the ebony-stained cabinets. Glass cabinets and sleek pendants evoke a contemporary feel, while a streamlined wood dining table adds a rustic touch. Design by Rebekah Zaveloff
The 2011 Dream Home master bathroom features a spa-worthy shower complete with rain-can showerhead and multiple body sprays. A vintage tub is the centerpiece of the bathroom's design and, for dramatic effect, a French-inspired chandelier is hung high above the space.
