Marble-Topped Island in Traditional Kitchen

A mix of contemporary lighting and Shaker-style cabinetry strikes a beautiful chord in this remodeled kitchen. Custom paneling helps the refrigerator blend seamlessly with the rest of the cabinetry. The sizable island features a durable marble countertop and small prep sink.

A handcrafted island and custom cabinetry surrounding the gas range are standout features in this beautiful kitchen. 

Dark Gray Dining Room With Armchairs

Instead of being gloomy, dark gray walls create a chic backdrop in this dining room. Mismatched chairs surround a dark wood table, while an Oriental rug anchors the space. A glitzy chandelier tops off the design.

Handsome Home Office

Although it may not be used from nine to five, this charming home office gets down to business. Complete with a stately wood desk, rolling desk chair and leather chaise, the space has a sophisticated feel.

Demilune Vanity in Transitional Bathroom

The curved vanity adds a feminine shape to this blue-gray bathroom. Above, a textured mirror feels a bit daring when paired with transitional sconces. Textured wallpaper and a patterned rug create visual interest throughout the space.
