Welcoming Entry Hall

A custom steel-framed mirror and matching chalkboard flank the walls of this entryway. A charming pendant light hangs overhead, while an area rug fills the entryway with color.

Gray and Orange Kitchen Banquette

This vibrant orange and gray kitchen banquette offers a prime spot to enjoy the bay window overlooking the backyard. Perennials fabric covers the seat cushions, including the Crate & Barrel Delta chairs. Graphic throw pillows complete the look and coordinate with the Roman shades.

Whimsical Yellow Dining Room

Vibrant yellow-and-white wallpaper sets the tone for this Alice-in-Wonderland-meets-London dining room. Fun touches include a bright yellow wingback chair, oval chandelier and slip-covered dining chairs.

Alice in Wonderland Dining Room Chair

A custom Alice in Wonderland-esque chair holds court in a corner of this dining room. The chair's Kravet wide-wale corduroy fabric matches the yellow flowers in the Walnut wallpaper.

Master Bathroom With Mod Pendant Chandelier

With a goal of creating a spa-like bathroom, the designer used a quartz tub surround, custom laminate tub facing and a beautiful area rug. The ottoman is covered in terry-cloth fabric, and is situated under a Capiz-shell pendant light.

Master Bathroom Custom Facing Vanities

Custom facing vanities in this master bath give the illusion of endless prep space. Sconces on the mirror add task lighting, which has quartz countertops and a striped laminate veneer.

Serene and Minimal Master Bedroom

A framed Cartier Heart Strings piece by Natural Curiosities sets the tone and color palette for this serene master bedroom. The print is complemented by printed Osborne & Little Roman shades and white Restoration Hardware bedding.

Quiet Refuge in Neutral Nook

Providing a quiet respite from the stresses of the day -- or of the household -- this sitting nook is the perfect place to decompress. The space is filled with natural light via windows dressed with elegant curtains and Roman shades.

Teen Girl's Bedroom With Hanging Bubble Chair

"Fun" is the word that best describes this teen girl's room. A blue focal wall matches the custom headboard, making the room pop with color. A hanging bubble chair provides bedside seating, while a four-foot-wide, flokati-covered rolling ottoman offers extra seating and a contrasting color to the blue and pink accents.

Color-Filled Girl's Bedroom

This radiant girl's bedroom uses many colors. A Knoll chair reupholstered in fuchsia leather sits in front of a bright blue vintage secretary, with an orange pouf nearby for extra seating. The area rug also incorporates several colors, making this room bright and cheerful.

Guest Bedroom With Green Accents

This guest bedroom is given personality via assorted textures, patterns and bright green accents. The wingback chair is clad in John Robshaw fabric, the throw and pendant ceiling light are from De-cor, and a West Elm runner sits parallel to the bed.

Powder Room With Large-Scale-Pattern Wallpaper

A sure-fire way to give a powder room big personality is through the use of eye-catching wallpaper. The walls of this little loo are covered in the bold Eleanor - Peridot at Night pattern by Madison & Grow from Walnut Wallpaper. The lime-green and gray print creates a stark contrast between the white window trim and sink.

Foosball Game Room

This homeowner opted for a foosball room over a home office. To create a playful space, the designer installed a custom Lucite swing, Alan Campbell Montecito Zig Zag Roman shades, an IKEA sheepskin rug and Currey & Company's Simpatico Orb Chandelier.

Living Room With Playful Light-Up Letter Art

This living room's furniture has style and sophistication, which are offset by the playfulness of the marquee letter and the Roost metallic-colored Enchanted Forest Tree Trunk Stool. Bursts of yellow add personality to the otherwise neutral space.

Living Room With Unique Moss Triptych

This living room oozes style thanks to a mod-looking sofa, barrel chair and yellow coffee table. A Restoration Hardware South American cowhide tile rug defines the seating area, while three pieces of framed artwork adorn the wall.

Family-Friendly Living Room With Custom Credenza

A comfy sectional sofa anchors this family-friendly living room, while the walnut credenza serves as a focal point.
