White Traditional Living Room With Pink Stools

This living room gave designers plenty to work with with its beautiful windows, high ceilings and lake views. To freshen up the space, hardwood floors were refinished and the room given new moldings and paint.

Traditional Neutral Living Room With Pink Stools

The homeowner's existing light linen sofa and gray, ivory and blue area rug were the jumping off points for this room's pale palette. To add punch and life, designers layered raspberry pink into the color scheme via two X-base stools and accent pillows.

White Traditional Living Room With Pink Pillows

Red, white and blue, step aside. Pink, white and blue, your day has come. The rich raspberry shade invigorates this traditional living room with sassy energy.

Blue and White Table Lamp and Pink Flowers

The living room includes many lovely details like this ceramic blue-and-white table lamp. Pink accents are a fun, happy pairing.

Blue and White Transitional Family Room With Yellow Throw

Wood and natural fiber accents (the coffee table and side drum table) give depth to the blue in the family room. Cheery yellow accessories are a pretty, sunshine-y note.

Transitional Living Room With Pink Flowers

Traditional patterns in fun colors wake up the quiet sofa and white walls in this living room. The designers also used gold accents for a touch of sophisticated shimmer.

Traditional Living Room With Pink Pillow

Color and pattern were the keys to bringing young, happy energy to this elegant space. The pillows' bright pink pineapple fabric is by Robert Allen. Gold candlesticks add a welcome sparkle.

Traditional Console Table With Gold Lamps

Twin gold table lamps by Kate Spade give a youthful twist to this console table tableau's more traditional styling.

White Chef Kitchen With Apple Bowl

Custom, raised-panel cabinetry, some with glass doors, extends all the way up to the 9-foot high ceiling. Hardware is simple, tasteful polished nickel.

White Open Plan Kitchen With Lake View

Originally, the kitchen was closed off from the dining room. To make both spaces feel more bright and take full advantage of beautiful lake views, designers joined the two rooms for easier flow and open sight lines.

White Chef Kitchen With Blue Vase

Barstools offer a fun pop of pattern, thanks to seats upholstered in blue Kate Spade fabric. The upper cabinets feature glass-front doors, a move that makes the kitchen feel more light and airy.

White Chef Kitchen With Double Ovens

Along with marble countertops and plentiful storage, the kitchen was outfitted with chef-grade appliances.

White Chef Kitchen Cooktop With Marble Backsplash

The area around the cooktop strikes a classic tone with dentil molding accents on the range hood and luxurious Carrara marble backsplash and countertops.

Kitchen Table With Orange Lilies

In one corner of the kitchen is this inviting table, farmhouse friendly and just right for breakfast or an afternoon cup of tea. Behind it, a mini fridge is conveniently placed for chilling drinks and wine.

Traditional Dining Room With Wood Chairs

The doorway in between the dining room and the kitchen was widened so that both rooms could soak up the sunlight and the views. As the dining room was also lacking in architectural sophistication, designers also added traditional moldings as well as a chandelier over the dining table.

Traditional Dining Room With Lake View

In the formal dining room, windows were left uncovered to keep views on constant display and let in maximum natural light, a valuable commodity in the Pacific Northwest where the home is located. The homeowner's Chippendale dining chairs get zippy new personality with seats freshly upholstered in a navy blue graphic pattern.

Transitional Family Room With Photo Gallery Wall

In the family room, the large blank wall over the sofa becomes a family photo gallery. Mismatched frames have a mood that's casual and friendly, not too contrived.

Pink and White Transitional Playroom With Bench

The goals for the playroom design? Practicality, lots of comfy seating, clutter control and flexibility (the owners wanted a room that could be adapted as kids get bigger). A cozy built-in bench handily solved two of the needs, upholstered in performance fabrics for better durability and easy cleaning.

Pink and White Playroom With Bench

Built-in storage acts like a magic trick on kid clutter. Toys, books, stuffed animals are organized easily away into this playroom's built-in shelving. In another kid-friendly move, the bench cushion is upholstered in durable performance fabric.

Blue and White Powder Room With Pink Orchid

One the smart improvements made to this powder room was a small ledge for accessories. Designers created it by capping off an awkward foundation curb wall with an elegant marble countertop.

Blue and White Powder Room With Scalloped Mirror

A handsome wood vanity in a dark stain and an Edwardian-style faucet are an elegant choice for the powder room. The vanity's dentil molding and marble countertops tie in with the same details in the kitchen, establishing a unified design look.

Blue and White Transitional Powder Room

Pretty blue-and-white wallpaper with birds and flowers was the design jumping off point for the powder room makeover. The dark-stained vanity is a handsome contrast; its dentil molding repeats a detail used in the kitchen. Above the vanity, a scalloped mirror in an antique gold finish is an elegant companion.
