Yellow Cottage Exterior

This quaint home shows off its sunny personality and plenty of curb appeal, including an ivy-trimmed front gate and yellow-and-white exterior.

Neutral Foyer and Living Room

Sweet details make this home's interior memorable and charming. The living room and foyer feature diamond-shaped windows and beautiful hardwood floors.

Small Living Room With Graphic Rug

Sometimes, a graphic rug in a small space can add instant life and style. Here, a bold black-and-white one energizes the living room.

White Small Kitchen With Wood Island

This small kitchen maximizes storage by building cabinets that stretch all the way up to the ceiling. Simple white tiles make a crisp, fresh backsplash.

Dining Room With Colorful Rug

The slightly-bowed shape of this dining room allows just enough wiggle room to add a charming bench-turned-window seat. A petite metal table makes a stylish, easy bar cart in the back corner.

Desk and Graphic Rug

To juxtapose the simple, wooden furniture, a graphic rug is used on the floor. The pattern adds energy and movement; the gray-and-white palette keeps the room's overall look neutral.

Child's Bedroom With Green Curtains

Slim-lined furniture means this child's bedroom feels cozy, not overstuffed. There's also a shag rug for delighting bare toes.

Deck With Striped Rug

Take a basic sectional, add some colorful pillows...and watch the magic happen. This fun deck punches up the scene by adding a graphic rug and pretty lighting.

Deck and Small Home

Out back of this jewel box of a home sits a petite deck just right for some cozy seating. Candles and lanterns make the setting magical at night.

Small Backyard and Deck

This backyard's not big, but it creates such an inviting mood with a deck, small patio, trim walking paths, even a wee garden. Off to one side sits a separate art studio.

Rustic Art Studio With Easel

A rustic outbuilding becomes a perfect art studio with the addition of an easel and stool. Skylights open the space up to natural light.
