Small Can Be Mighty

Reminiscent of Napa Valley, California bungalows, clever space-planning and a cohesive color palette ensure this small home packs in a lot of style.

Cozy Cottage Kitchen

Soft warm gray walls are paired with cool gray base cabinets and a gray-and-white marble backsplash for a fresh take on neutrals.

Gray, White + Wood All Over

Gray and white marble tiles laid in a herringbone pattern extend far beyond the traditional backsplash area to add graphic interest to the kitchen's back wall.

Small Meets Luxe

Although this kitchen is small in square footage, it's big on luxurious touches like a Calacatta marble countertop and Viking gas range.

Old is New Again

At the farmhouse sink, a Rohl bridge faucet in polished nickel adds a timeless look.

Free-Flowing Layout

The sunny kitchen opens to a cozy dining area and living room beyond. The home's open floor plan and smooth flow ensures entertaining is easy.

Serene Suite

Crisp white bedding and soft neutral walls brighten up the master bedroom while a high tray ceiling makes the small space feel much larger. A custom platform bed constucted of reclaimed lumber adds rustic charm.

Space-Saving Feature

Instead of a standard swinging door which would eat up valuable bedroom floor space, a sliding barn door is a space-saving feature that also adds architectural interest.

Warm + Cool

Designer Lindsay Chambers tries a fresh twist on trendy marble + cool-color bathrooms by mixing in warm brown hex tile on the shower wall. Calacatta marble wall tiles with both warm and cool veining tie the look together.

Bright Guest Bathroom

Floor-to-ceiling glossy white subway tile helps to bounce natural light around this tidy guest bathroom. A wall of custom built-ins and matching vanity provide plenty of hidden storage.
