Chic Basement Bar Adjacent to Well-Organized Playroom

Open glass shelving showcases a fully stocked bar on one side of this basement entertainment room. A white tile backsplash runs under the shelving, and stainless steel chairs line the wood bar countertop. A step across the small hallway takes you into the playroom featuring built in-shelving for container storage. A green rug adds a pop of bright color and fun to the playspace.

Kelly green and hot-pink caps on the white columns add an extra touch of color. A white-cushioned loveseat fits snugly on the far end of the porch.

Lime-Green Family Room Features Crisp White Wainscoting

The family room has tall ceilings, so white wainscoting was used to visually lower the height of the space for a cozy feel. Clean white decorative accents provide contrast without too much visual clutter. A lime-green color brings a fun and lighthearted feel to the design, while neutral furniture allows the wall color to shine.

Open-Plan Kitchen With Doorway Leading to Backyard

The kitchen has a folding door which opens to a wood patio leading into the small backyard. Another large, open wall connects to the bright green living room for a truly open feel. The island has a gray countertop that complements the wall color, and a perfectly fitted cutout houses the dog dishes.

Gray Kitchen Flows Into Lime-Green Family Room

Custom Built-In Dog Crate Under Pantry Cabinets

This built-in dog crate is situated below a pantry and open shelf unit. The built-in design keeps the crate out of the way while still allowing for easy access. A grated door ensures the dog can see out and receive air flow.

Hallway With Hardwood Floor, Gray Walls and White Trim

The upstairs hallway uses clean white trim to tie everything together. Gray walls keep the space light, while hardwood flooring adds a natural warmth to the look. The hallway ends in a point with doors on either side for an interesting angled finish.
