To help the dining room maintain its airy feeling despite its small space, designers used a glass top table with a sculptural wood base. The finish on the dining chair legs are painted so that they coordinated with the chandelier, while the upholstery adds the texture and black and gray contrast that is carried throughout these two spaces.
To create an architectural element worthy of a luxury hotel, Atlanta designer Rachel Greathouse started with a $30 mirror at a flea market. She painted the four-paned frame in a gloss that matched the wall color, and then hung the mirror at a 45 degree angle for an interesting visual effect. From its place above the bed, the mirror can appear like a diamond-shaped window because it reflects the windows on the opposite wall.
Sunny Side Up - If you thrive on sunshine, your bedroom should be bright and airy. Sheer curtains let in lots of natural light, and the addition of a mirror will help make your room even brighter. Stick with a wall color that’s light and refreshing to ensure you’ll always wake up to a welcoming sight.

The homeowners wanted a light, airy retreat, so designer Vanessa Matsalla painted the space from the inside out, exchanging the gazebo's previous dull color for the neutral tones that bring the design to life.
Designer Jessica Murphy of Her Cave Atlanta completely renovated the dated fixtures and dark tones in this bathroom, creating a light, airy space with updated features, colors and tiles. Ceramic tile made to look like wood works together with the standalone tub and walls painted in Sherwin-Williams Fleur de Sel to create a contemporary modern look. The centerpiece splurge is the chic Kardiel standalone tub, which Murphy says gives the room a luxury feel.
