Refreshed Connecticut Farmhouse

This sleek, yet quaint farmhouse kitchen features both period and modern elements, including midcentury-inspired barstools and a traditional apron sink.

The homeowners wanted a tiny home that didn't feel so tiny, so designers used high pitched ceilings and plenty of windows to make the space feel bigger.

Master Bedroom With Views of San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge

Though size was not a concern in this master bedroom, the shape of the space presented a challenge in this San Francisco loft. A curved half wall allows views of the bay and Bay Bridge but limits the layout options for the bedroom furniture.

Home Infused With Hollywood Glamour in Los Angeles

A cluster of silvery globe pendants in the dining room balance and give weight to the light palette and lofty architecture.

Serene Master Bath

Light is a big part of the design of the master bathroom as well. With large windows along the rear wall, a lit ceiling and a lighted mirror, this space is a great place for the couple to get ready for their day.

Dreamy Master Bedroom With a Harbor View

A set of French doors in an amazing circular construction of windows connects this master bedroom directly to a deck. Beyond the deck, the harbor and boats. What a place to end the day.

Modern Kitchen With Moroccan Flair

The homeowners wanted a unique space for their family, so designers found Moroccan tiles for the backsplash and had custom Oak planks arranged in a chevron pattern on the front of the refrigerator and freezer. For the final touch, un-lacquered brass hardware and pendant lights add even more character to the design.

Chic Midcentury Modern Kitchen and Dining

Sleek wood cabinets pair with elegant white marble countertops in this contemporary kitchen. Open shelving create an airy atmosphere and keep everyday dishes handy. The focal point of the space is the marble-clad island, which provides extra counter space, as well as houses more storage and integrated microwave.

Eclectic Dining Room With a Gallery Wall

Deep charcoal walls create a serene environment in this eclectic dining room. Comfortable Ikat dining chairs surround the sleek wooden table, while a modern chandelier illuminates the space. An abstract art gallery wall brings in a contemporary vibe.

Polished Wood-Infused Kitchen

In this beautiful kitchen, the exposed wood beams and countertops give the space a rustic feel; sculptural pendants and chef-grade appliances add contemporary polish.

Charming Country Dining Room

Instead of walls, gray exposed beams frame out this home's different rooms while maintaining the open concept layout that lets in so much sunlight.

Edgy Kitchen With Industrial Elements

With seating for eight, the large dining table in the middle of this newly remodeled kitchen gives the homeowners a great space to entertain, while the combination of a farmhouse table and wrought iron chairs adds visual interest to the space.

Comfy Living Room With Floral Details

The mix of patterns in this pretty family room works because the scale is all small and the colors relatively mellow: a beige-and-white base perked up by pops of yellow and turquoise.

Light and Airy Kitchen

To give the homeowners much-needed space for entertaining, designers installed a large kitchen island that has enough seating for at least five guests. Not only does this space provide seating, it also gives the homeowners extra counter space for easy meal preparation, since there is direct access to the home's double ovens, microwave, refrigerator and stove from the kitchen island, which also contains a large prep sink for simple kitchen cleanup.

Chic Sitting Room With Blue Hues

The design in the living room was kept elegant and simple so as to complement the large space, rather than compete with it. Large sliding glass doors allow in plenty of natural light, while the bookshelves add elegant display spaces. To complement the light walls, designers created a custom patina to paint onto the floor rather than staining it.

Warm, Wood-Infused Living Room

In a white or neutral room, a few dark elements can help ground the space. Here, cedar beams and a barn wood fireplace do the job.

Scandinavian-Inspired Great Room

Contemporary yet comfortable furniture creates a relaxing sitting area in this Scandinavian-inspired living room. A trio of light fixtures hang from the exposed wood beams, bringing a touch of rustic charm to the space.

Sophisticated Gray Sitting Room

Contemporary and traditional styles blend seamlessly in this transitional living room. Classic architectural details, like the crown molding and wainscoting are painting a soothing gray. A Chesterfield sofa combines with comfortable armchairs and a Lucite coffee table for a cozy seating area.

Home Office Space with Plenty of Storage

The home office space needed to have plenty of storage and function, so designers added a lacquer and stained oak custom built-in unit with open shelving, cabinets and drawers, as well as a usable workspace for the desktop computer. When the computer is not in use, the free-standing desk provides another work space. To warm up the space and create a contrast from the monochromatic colors, designers brought in a brown, swivel, office chair for a comfy place to sit.

Modern Kitchen and Dining Space

This modern, white kitchen and eating area features a geometric pendant over the round, black table, an organically shaped blue rug, and modern white seating.

Luxe Jewel-Toned Living Room

The young family who owns this home have a passion for collecting art and wanted to fill their house with that color and energy. The designers focused on jewel tone saturated colors and durable fabrics, which allowed the young kids to use every part of the room and the grown-ups to to have a space that's polished and ready for entertaining.

Stylish Home With Bursts of Orange

This family room uses its neutral walls and sofa as a foundation on top of which to layer exciting colors like royal blue and orange in a bold mix of patterns.

Midcentury Home With Teal and Orange Accents

This midcentury modern entryway features new flooring, new doors, vintage furniture and a custom stair railing.

Bold Yellows + Blues in Bachelor Pad

Blissfully unafraid of color, this bachelor pad living room sings out with energy and life thanks to lemon yellow curtains (that reach floor to ceiling, no less), sky blue armchairs and a zippy black-and-white rug.

Peter Rabbit-Themed Twins' Nursery

The design of this nursery incorporates a masculine feel for the twin boys while still maintaining a soft aesthetic. For the concept of the room, designers channeled Mom's love for Peter Rabbit and added special touches with a wall decal and hand-painted bunny silhouettes.

Contemporary White Playroom With Reading Nook

The contemporary playroom is designed for tons of fun. A ladder and climbing wall lead up to the play loft, and open shelves above the mod reading nook organizes the books. The reading tunnel has a color changing LED strip lighting that lets the kids set the mood.

Chic Black-and-White Nursery

To personalize this nursery space, designers added the baby's name in soft, wool letters above the crib.

Timeless Boy's Bedroom

The homeowners wanted a room that could grow up with their little boy, so designers chose timeless pieces of furniture and base linens for that specific purpose. Designers took liberty to make the room more fun with the artwork, throw pillows and other decor they brought into the space.

Girl's Posh Bedroom With Reading Nook

Designers took advantage of the previously wasted space under the window and added a cozy nook.

Lovely Girl's Room in Lilac

Whimsical Hygge & West wallpaper sets the scene for this serene girly bedroom. Different shades of lilac and purple are used throughout the space to create a cohesive design without being matchy-matchy. The classic Jenny Lind twin bed is dressed in a variety of patterns, and a hanging chair is a cozy yet playful reading spot.

Apartment Infused With Modern Art

The moody hues of this master bedroom perfectly offset the sweeping artwork that fills the wall above the bed. A lilac-dyed parchment writing desk is another elegant complement.

Exposed Brick + Beams in Townhouse

This townhouse living room feels so cozy and texture-rich with its exposed brick wall, ceiling beams and pretty fireplace. On either side of the fireplace, twin ladder shelves add storage that still shows of the beauty of the brick.

Bold Custom Walls Line This Living Room

The living room flows easily into this dining area, both with the gorgeous backdrop of a Porter Teleo wallpaper accent wall. The simple arrangement and neutral palette of the dining table and chairs allows for the patterns in the living room to shine.

Country Estate With Rustic Finishes

In keeping with this home's country setting, wood doors slide back barn-style at the entrance to the living room. A huge tufted sectional is a sophisticated way to make sure that everyone has a seat.

Row House With Geometric Accents

A patterned cement tile fireplace is surrounded by built-in bookcases that display the homeowners' favorite books and accessories. The heather gray chaise pairs with navy armchairs and a gold coffee table for a comfortable living area.

Townhouse Kitchen With Floral Backsplash and Wood Walls

Pattern and texture are key in this urban contemporary kitchen. The bold peony and vine backsplash makes a dramatic statement and is offset by sleek wood cabinets. The vibrant pink island is color matched to the BlueStar stove, and contemporary pendant lights illuminate the space.

Spacious + Stylish Family Home

Designed to be a family room area where all the neighborhood kids will gather on movie night, this space needed to be durable and beautiful. The window seat with its easy-to-clean laminated fabric creates a cozy and sunny reading area and allows for additional movie viewing. The custom-made media cabinet hides all the kids toys, board games and AV equipment.

Chic Arizona Ranch

Simple landscaping and a paver walkway lead to this contemporary ranch home that features clean white brick and soft gray siding.

Spa-Like Master Bathroom Retreat

Almost invisible glass shower walls create a seamless view through the picturesque window from the rest of the bathroom and the soaker tub. A sleek double vanity pairs dark wood with charcoal gray countertops, and open cubbies keep towels handy.

Stately English Cottage Home in Grand Rapids

Simple manicured landscaping welcomes guests to this quaint English cottage home. The open porch is an inviting spot to sit and enjoy outdoors. A rustic arched wooden door centers the home, while black trimmed windows create a stylish contrast against the white exterior.
