A Larger-Than-Life Sink
While this trough-like station is a great fit for a family with four kids in Jupiter, Florida, it’s also a statement piece, says designer Kara Hebert. She paired the black-and-white Kohler sink with Thomas O’Brien sconces that mimic the two-tone look. For a kick, she picked tiles by Cement Tile Shop in shades of blue. Mirrored medicine chests and a roomy basket provide storage.

A Can’t-Miss-It Clock
Sorry, smartphones: “Hanging a massive clock with a pretty face infuses a space with sophistication,” says designer Kimberley Kay, who spruced up this San Francisco, California home office. The 30-inch-by-30-inch HomeGoods score matches the niche’s boxiness, while oak warms the walls and the chrome table legs.
A Sky-High Headboard
“A room that’s all neutral needs impact,” says designer Shea McGee, and this grand custom headboard does the trick. To suit the minimalist look the Park City, Utah, couple craved, it’s upholstered in solid-color linen. Stacked framed nature scenes on either side enhance the serene feel while also filling all that space above the nightstands.
“Since you can see the dining room when you walk into this house in Newport, California, I chose tall velvet head chairs in the homeowner’s fave color,” says designer Robin Strickler. (They’re Martin host chairs covered in Lillian August Columbo teal fabric). Nailhead trim makes them even more stately: “Whoever sits in them feels like a king or queen!”
A Ginormous Light
“I wanted to break out of the typical nautical theme,” says designer Jenny Keenan of this beach home on Sullivan Island, South Carolina. An XL vintage chandelier made of capiz shells has jellyfish-esque luminescence. (For a similar one, try the 30-inch capiz shell pendant from RH.) Jenny paired it with patterned blue pillows — not a seahorse in sight! — and had a coffee table made by Grey Area to resemble a surfboard, with bright stripes and a shellac finish.
A Jumbo Lamp
This triangle-motif stunner by Currey & Company holds its own in a room that has a lot going on. “A prominent, interesting lamp acts as a piece of art and gives the eye something to focus on,” says designer Denise Davies about this Westchester County, New York, bedroom. Its twin is on the other side of the bed for double the impact.
For a cool take on traditional 2-inch hexagon tile, designer Curtis Popp decked out this Folsom, California, bathroom with a blown-up version (Bee Hive tiles by Daltile) in a random pattern. “It has the effect of wallpaper,” he says. An oak vanity, a gray Caesarstone counter and concrete floors keep the space simple and sleek.
