Contemporary Living Room Embraces Bold Furniture, Painted Fireplace

What's not to love about this contemporary living room? Though defined by crisp white walls and hardwood floors, this space comes to life with a dark green fireplace surround, pink sofa and two bright green chairs. A navy blue area rug keeps the space soft and invites guests to kick off their shoes and stay awhile.

Contemporary Living Room Calls Attention to 1870s Brick Fireplace

Architectural details like an original 1870s fireplace deserve to be displayed, so the designers used green paint to transform this feature into a chic accent wall. Because the color is so dark, it also thoughtfully camouflages the owners' flatscreen TV. Meanwhile, two large mirrors flank the fireplace and make the living room seem even larger.

Pink Sofa, Green Chairs Pop in Contemporary Living Room

A fresh coat of paint works wonders on this historic home, instantly brightening the 1870s interior and making it look more modern. Using the white walls as a canvas, the designers then introduced splashes of color via the bright red art in the foyer and a pink sofa, green chairs and blue area rug in the living room.

Contemporary Living Room Complete With Woven Chandelier

Don't let the fun colors fool you; this contemporary living room is still entirely functional. Two green armchairs and a pink sofa provide comfortable seating for about five people, while a set of nesting coffee tables keeps drinks and snacks within arm's reach. What's more, a boho-style chandelier illuminates the space for conversation.

Modern Dining Space Pairs Funky Chairs, Tulip-Style Table

To create a sense of cohesion from one room to the next, the designers used a color palette of red, white and blue throughout this townhouse. Thus, in the dining room, bright blue walls become a backdrop for white chairs, a tulip-style table and a red piece of artwork.

Modern Dining Room Includes Built-In China Cabinets

There's more to this dining room than meets the eye; if you look closely, you'll see that the far wall is actually comprised of floor-to-ceiling cabinets with drawers. Thus, the owners can keep their plates, bowls and other entertaining essentials in here and enjoy even more storage in the kitchen.

Transitional Eat-In Kitchen Includes French Doors to Back Deck

French doors are a major perk in this eat-in kitchen, as they both fill the space with natural light *and* grant access to the deck. Meanwhile, floor-to-ceiling cabinets with glass panels complement the feature and provide plenty of storage.

Transitional Eat-In Kitchen With Stainless Appliances, Blue Island

This townhouse has a great sense of flow, as the dining room easily transitions into the eat-in kitchen. Thus, the owners can use their stainless refrigerator, microwave and range to prep a delicious dinner, then serve guests seated at the island or the tulip-style table.

Transitional Eat-In Kitchen Pairs Blue Island, Black Barstools

When set against white walls, cabinets and a matching subway tile backsplash, the blue island and black barstools in this kitchen look even more dramatic. Two matte-black caged pendant lights complement the stools and so help tie the space together.

Transitional Eat-In Kitchen Complete With Chic Dining Space

Though this eat-in kitchen leans a little modern, the designers still wanted to pay homage to the home's historic architecture. So they used crown molding, wainscoting and custom built-ins on the opposite wall to balance out the bold artwork and books. Down below, a modern table with black chairs creates a chic dining space for the owners and their guests.

Eclectic, Two-Toned Guest Room With Antique Dresser

Transitional Guest Bathroom With Glass-Enclosed Shower

This bathroom has everything guests need to feel comfortable: a vanity with two sinks, large drawers for extra linens and a glass-enclosed shower where they can wash up in the morning. A pretty pendant light adds interest to the room and makes the space as bright as possible.

Spacious, Top-Floor Master Suite With Two Skylights

Thanks to its location on the very top floor, this master suite has a unique layout with two large skylights. Rather than pack the room with furniture, the designers chose to leave the space wide-open and used two pendant lights to draw attention to the cool ceiling.

Small Bathroom With Black-and-White Checkered Floor

To make the most of this small bathroom, the designers installed a floating sink, stall shower and privacy wall -- all of which leave the floor wide-open. A skylight fills the space with natural light and helps showcase the checkered tile.

Rocket Decal, Skylight Add Fun Touch to Contemporary Kids' Room

Contemporary Home Office With Built-In Bookshelves

This townhouse actually boasts two offices: one downstairs and one on the top floor, pictured here. In addition to a long desk with chairs for each of the owners, the space comes with built-in bookshelves and a large gray area rug where the kiddos can read or play.
