Elegant Yet Family-Friendly Craftsman Home

The owners of this Craftsman home wanted their space to look elegant and have plenty of spots where the family could gather. Thus, designer Suzanne Childress outfitted the interior with sensible, neutral furniture and pulled in dark wood pieces for contrast. A breakfast nook, cozy den and playroom encourage everyone to get together.

Elegant, Bold Foyer

In the foyer, designers chose a bold, rich stain for the stairs that match the beautiful dresser that introduces guests to the design of the remainder of the home.

Elegant Curio Cabinet in Kitchen

On the wall of the kitchen peninsula, designers added an elegant curio cabinet to maximize display space as well as providing a convenient wine storage area and television.

Simple, Elegant Gray Kitchen

Designers wanted to fulfill the homeowners' wishes of a clean kitchen, without sacrificing the family's style, so they installed sleek, gray cabinets and a shimmery, gray tile backsplash, keeping the space stylish, but still simple and elegant.

Blue Velvet Barstools Add Color and Seating to Gray Kitchen

In the kitchen, blue, velvet barstools underneath the kitchen peninsula add a splash of color to the otherwise neutral kitchen as well as provides the space with additional seating and another casual dining option.

Bold and Bright Breakfast Nook

A breakfast nook with a bold teal cushion and bright red chairs create a funky space for an intimate family breakfast.

Bold Teal and Brown Vinyl Striped Banquette Cushion

Light, Bright and Warm Living Room with Fireplace

In the living room, a gray sofa, gray and white armchairs and a gray rug keep the space feeling light and bright, while dark stained wood, a dark wicker coffee table and a chocolate color pendant light add warmth to the space. To tie the room together, red pillows accent the red brick of the fireplace and add color to the room's design.

Intimate Gray and Blue Family Room

The family room provides the homeowners with a great space to gather their friends and family members for a screening of their favorite movie. A cozy, gray sectional gives the space plenty of seating, while the built-in shelves and cabinets add plenty of storage and display space. Finally, A blue rug and wood coffee table add warmth to the space, finishing off the intimate room's design.

Neutral Playroom with Plenty of Organization and Storage Space

In the playroom, a wall full of cabinets keeps the space organized, while the chalkboard wall gives the kids an element of customizability in their room. The table and chairs gives the children a place to work, and the rug adds a softness to the clean design. Finally, large French doors allow in plenty of natural light.

Mirror Reflects Natural Light and Makes Master Bedroom Feel Larger

An oversized mirror hung on the wall beside the king sized bed reflects the natural light let into the space from the large window, making the bedroom seem larger.

Luxurious Fabrics and Bold Stains Create a Stunning Master Bedroom

In the master bedroom, designers brought in furniture with bold fabrics and stains to that the space would feel luxurious and stunning. For example, the headboard of the bed and the dark stain on the nightstands and the frame of the mirror create a luscious feeling in the design.

Gray and White Guest Bathroom

In another guest bathroom, designers anchored the space in blue-gray vanity cabinets and a white countertop. This clean look helps to connect this space to the rest of the home's spaces. To finish off this bathroom, a gray and white marble floor and a gray and white tile border around the mirror add warmth to the room's design.

Doorway Between Master Bedroom and En Suite Keeps Spaces Visually Connected But Physically Separate

A narrow doorway seamlessly connects the master bedroom with its en suite. This doorless entry allows the spaces to be physically connected without requiring that the entire bathroom space be on display from the bedroom.

Neutral Guest Bathroom with Lots of Texture

In the guest bathroom, designers added texture to the small space by bringing in wallpaper that sports neutral feathers. Then, they added real feathers and a textured mirror to the vanity to finish off the design.

Teal Tile Shower in Neutral Master Bathroom

In the master bedroom, designers brought color into the space by including a bold, teal tile in the shower to contrast with the calm, neutral color palette of the rest of the space.

Fun, Sophisticated Girls Room

Subtle and feminine was the design goal for this elegant little girl's room. The muted pink walls anchor the space, while the gray patterned bedspread adds warmth and texture to the space. For color and personality, designers brought in a teal and pink rug with antiqued furniture to create a fun, yet sophisticated room for this little girl to enjoy now as well as grow into.

Sleek, Neutral Bathroom
