Light shines into this midcentury modern bedroom through shallow, ceiling-height rectangular windows -- and together with crisp, white walls and a skylight the space is bound to feel bright all year round!

A large black console table graces this transitional entryway with a tall glass buffet lamp and an oversized sculptural mirror. White wall paneling opens up and lightens the space, while chevron ottomans give the entryway a fresh, trendy feel.
Employ simple DIY tricks for upmarket style that saves a pretty penny. Atlanta designer Nancy Keenan took pieces of one-by-six lumber and nailed them into place behind the standalone tub to mimic judges’ paneling, a more expensive architectural detail that can be bought in sheets. After cutting the lumber, nail the pieces onto your wall in squares or rectangles. Paint them all a semi-gloss color to create a stylish accent wall.
Surrounded by white wall paneling, symmetry was used to arrange flanking chairs and the cream sofa in this transitional living room. All furniture is covered in linen in varying shades of creams and grays, while chartreuse and soft lavender are used as accent colors. A large reclaimed-wood coffee table anchors the room, while two burlap sculptural chairs with pivoting wall sconces can be used as reading corners.
White paneling surrounds this room with a crisp, clean backdrop for pops of color in the furnishings. Symmetry is key in this space with streamlined furniture arranged around the focal mantel and wall-mounted television. Accent colors, chartreuse and soft lavender, are used for sophisticated pops of color in small benches, flowers and accent pillows. A whitewashed sculptural console is placed behind the sofa to smoothly transition from the foyer.
Paneling behind the bed creates immediate texture and interest, establishing an understated focal point in this crisp white bedroom. A bold orange reading lamp with a flexible arm offers a vibrant splash of color.
Styles mix beautifully in this game room featuring a large pool table. A black ceiling complements the white crackled paint finish on the recessed paneling, and a large piece of modern art ties the two together. Brown, horizontal-striped window treatments bring a warmth to the room and complement the block wooden stool. A large pendant light over the pool table makes sure no shot is missed!
Opaque white cabinets and drawers, glass door cabinets and open shelving are built into this spacious arts and crafts room providing ample storage and organization options. Two table panels are placed together to form a large work space in addition to the available countertop space. A gray accent wall adds a nice shade to the white design.
This room may be a bit small, but it is big on personality. The blue paneled walls married with the tongue-and-groove ceiling add a ton of architectural interest while the patterned rug, mirrored-glass light fixture and white and blue sofa add high style.
The white paneled walls and ceiling in this cottage dining room allow natural light to bounce off and brighten the space. Salvaged plank wood floors are dressed with two traditional runners that flank the dining table.
