Transitional Living Room With Chess Set

Molding is used to create a large geometric pattern on one of the walls of this gracious family room. It's an intriguing way to instantly bring visual interest to the space. Plus, it's a nice base for more layers of pattern, like the curtains' small-scale print.

Transitional Family Room With Blue Lamp

"A room does not have to be full to be complete. Less can, in fact, be more," says designer Lauren Clement. "Make what you do put in a room count with high visual impact and, of course, functionality." The designer recommends waiting to find just-the-right pieces for a space, instead of resorting to quick buys that may not be the best fit.

Gray Transitional Family Room With Blue Art

Lightest gray walls are a stylish twist on a neutral color, serving as a pretty foil for the blue art and the family room's textural layers.

Transitional Foyer With Sun Mirror

A few star pieces—or rather sun ones—get things off to a stylish start in this foyer. The sunburst mirror is the anchor, complemented by the console's simple lines and a bright blue rug.

White Transitional Kitchen With Blue Island

In this kitchen makeover, designers exchanged a kitchen table for an extra-large island, since the family who live here love to cook, bake and eat together. It was a space-saving move and visually, made the smaller room seem larger.

White Transitional Chef Kitchen With Gray Sink

The sink in this gourmet kitchen is Blanco crushed quartz. The material is heat- and scratch-resistant and feels velvety soft to the touch. The sink is part of the large island, where the family preps, cooks and has meals together.

One wall of the pretty kitchen was dedicated entirely to storage, a needed improvement that was realized with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. The lost countertop space was made up with the large kitchen island that has plenty of room for cooking and enjoying meals!

Blue Transitional Butler's Pantry With Mini Fridge

An awkward nook evolves into the perfect butler's pantry or bar! Cabinets get a cheerful shade of blue paint, perfectly complemented by the backsplash's tan chevron stripe.

White Mudroom With Blue Paneling

What was once an impractical, closed-in closet is now this friendly, highly-functional mudroom! Storage is a mix of open and closed, including wall hooks (more are hidden behind the doors) and vented drawers for shoe storage.

Transitional Living Room With Cube Stools

Dark wood beams and white molding give this large living room definition. Fabrics are all light to continue the airy mood. And there are smart design details, like the cube-shaped stools that are easy extra seating and tuck neatly under the sofa table when they're not needed.

Transitional Living Room With Wood Beams

This living room's soaring ceiling gets smart definition from the wood beams in their natural wood color. The mostly light furniture and walls enhance the room's airy feel.

Blue and White Living Room With Gold Tray

Every item in this charming living room seems hand-picked to go in the space. There are a number of different patterns, but they all work because they fall within the same color palette of blue, gold, gray and white. A select few, sculptural accessories make sure there's always something interesting to look at.

Blue Contemporary Powder Room With Yellow Roses

A small room—like this powder room—is the perfect place to have a little fun. Walls are papered in a bold Greek key pattern. The turquoise vanity adds another layer of playful color. Brass accents finish off the contemporary look.

Gray Main Bathroom With White Orchid

Black and white quartz countertops started off the design strategy for this lovely main bathroom. The rest of the tile was paired to complement the stone. Cabinets were painted a pretty light gray, Benjamin Moore x Lauren Nicole Stoney Knoll. Double sinks mean everyone has plenty of room for getting ready.

White Main Bathroom and Soaking Tub

The tub is original to this main bathroom, but all new Bbrizo fixtures were added. Towel bars were powder coated to match.

Walk In Shower With Black and White Bench

Mosaic tiles create a beautifully dynamic backsplash and floor in this walk-in shower. Fixtures are from Bbrizo. And the black-and-white bench visually ties in with the bathroom's quartz countertops.

Contemporary Laundry Room With Graphic Floor

Suddenly, loads of laundry feel less like a chore when the laundry room is this stylish. The graphic tile floor energizes the space and looks great with the backsplash and wallpaper.
