Rest and Relaxation

To create the soothing and airy feel the homeowner requested, light colors fill the living room, while plush furnishings create a more cozy vibe.

Basic Style

It's back to the basics in this restful living space. A subtle mix of patterns and a few select accessories, such as the botanical tray and starburst mirror, keep the room simple but chic.

Built-In Beauty

A show-stopping built-in houses books, movies and accessories, leaving plenty of room for more in this warm, neutral living space.

Transitional Color Palette

Ultra-light grays and yellows play on current trends without looking stale or seasonal in this comfy transitional space.

Thought-Out Details

Delicate details in the fabric of the cream area rug and textured armchair blend beautifully together. Color and texture will also aid in hiding some dirt and stains, a fact that is important considering there are children and a dog in the home.

Smart Space

The formal dining room is kept simple with clean lines and classic furnishings. A small tray takes the place of a more cumbersome bar cart.

Alternate Lighting

A stunning light above the table blends beautifully with the patterned cafe curtains, which allow even more light to flood the casual dining space.

Soft Touch

A subtle mix of patterns in the headboard, throw pillows, bedding and curtains add a soft, textural interest to the bedroom without overwhelming the light, casual feel of the room.

White and Bright

An all-white bathroom can offer a peaceful and soothing atmosphere, but it's important to incorporate interesting design details outside of color in order to keep the room feeling stylish and fresh. Wainscoting, hexagonally shaped tile and silver accents do the trick in this quaint bathroom.

Plenty of Space

Because she works from home so often, the homeowner needed a home office that was not cramped and offered plenty of storage. A focal wall of brick is a great accent to the space, while dark wood floors are always a gorgeous feature.

Studded Seating

In the back of the spacious home office sits a cozy, studded loveseat, the perfect place for the kids to gather while mom gets some work done.
