Countryside Escapes: Idyllic Farmhouse in the Catskills

This farmhouse, built in the 1800s, sits just off of Main Street in a town outside of the Catskill Mountains. With tall trees and green pastures all around, the country home looks charming even at a distance.

When the home was built in the 1800s, a stove like this was essential for staying warm and cooking dinner. Now, the designers at Art Home Garden, use it to maintain the integrity of the farmhouse -- and occasionally heat a tea kettle.

Entertaining's a breeze with a dining room that flows right into the open kitchen. Against the window, four cross-backed stools and a long counter can be used as a breakfast bar or as extra seating when the owners host parties.

Big City Digs: Brooklyn Church Turned Condo

LABLstudio strived to maintain a sense of the home's church origins by highlighting architectural elements like the beautiful, arched front door. A repurposed peg board hung on the wall makes for a fun spot to hang scarves and jackets.

The antique wood mirror in the kitchen is one of the places designers aimed to incorporate some of the building's church history. The mirror's ornate carvings are lightened by the slim pendants and bright white cabinetry.

Part of the home's quirky charm comes from its various levels. A sunken living room is deliciously full of soft poufs and pillows. The dining room is up above with a ladder leading intriguingly to yet a third level.

Master Retreats: Scandinavian-Inspired Oasis

The style in this bedroom, designed by Genna Margolis, is Scandinavian-inspired, with lots of light colors and sunlight bouncing off the white walls and wood floor. Glass double doors lead out to an outdoor space.

The mood in the master bedroom is easy and natural, with a sunburst basket weaving on the wall over the bed. Dark gray and blue bedding is a visual anchor in the light-colored space.

Sunset pastels soften all the white of this spa bathroom and give it a dream-like quality. There's also a healthy dose of texture: chandelier covered in white fringe? Yes, please!

Color + Pattern: Craftsman With Punk Rock Palette

Punk rock princesses will feel totally at home in this edgy black-and-pink kitchen, designed by Caitlin Murray of Black Lacquer Design. With its black countertops, gold hardware and midcentury fixture, the space is the perfect mix of bold and glamorous.

Color + Pattern: Craftsman With Punk Rock Palette

After parting ways with their beloved Victorian home in San Francisco and relocating to Los Angeles, Caitlin Murray's clients knew they wanted their Craftsman to reflect their Gothic tastes. So Murray created an unexpected, blended design, starting with the living room. Here, lilac ceiling beams and a floral accent wall balance a moody blue velvet sofa and dramatic black area rug.

Because the rest of the room is so neutral, a hot pink accent rug really pops! The owners will love how it softens the hardwood floors, too.

Dramatic Before + Afters: Light & Airy L.A. Home

Designer Natalie Myers removed a wall to open up this California kitchen, revealing a ceiling-height window that ushers in loads of natural light. A modern island was added in the renovation and features a waterfall edge and shiplap detail. Four natural wood barstools allow for ample seating and tie in with the white oak cabinetry. Soaring ceilings support rustic-modern pendant lights that add to the room's organic vibe.

Eclectic and organic, this light-filled modern living room features a mix of textures and a soft, neutral color palette. Blue accents form a thread that runs throughout the spaces. A three-sided fireplace is a strong architectural element, and its stone surround fits with the home's mid-century modern architecture.

A fun mix of pattern and texture add vibrancy to this white, modern and streamlined master bathroom. A sinuous chair rests beside a freestanding, modern soaker tub, creating a convenient and relaxing spot for a bath. Vessel sinks top a natural wood vanity with mid-century lines that reflect the home's architecture.

Kitchen + Dining: Groovy Mint Blue Galley Kitchen

Lucie Ayres' client asked to have a pantry, laundry room AND a desk in a small nook of the kitchen. She made it happen mainly by opening the walls between the former laundry room and kitchen and by installing space-saving retractable doors.

Those black-and-white tiled floors continue into the dining room. Here, an arch nods to the home's Spanish style, while a modern table and two chairs give the owners an intimate spot for conversation.

On the far side of the room, a desk and stool create a nook where the owners can draft emails, make grocery lists and listen to their favorite albums by chvrches.

Waterside Retreats: Contemporary Home on the Harbor

The back wall of this house located on the harbor, completely vanishes and allows open access to a patio and private dock. It's indoor outdoor living with a waterfront twist.

Waterside Retreats: Contemporary Home on the Harbor

The exquisite design by Brooke Wagner, showcases a dark floor in the kitchen that gives the open concept space gravitas. Bonus points: The barstools' brass is a striking contrast against the charcoal gray.
