Midcentury Modern Open-Plan Living and Dining Space
Perfect for casual weekend living, this Hamptons beach-house dining/family room has a close connection to the kitchen, as well as to outdoor living areas. Glass doors on the ground level slide all the way into the walls, opening the family/dining room and living room to an expansive deck area. The rooms can be entirely open or protected from mosquitoes with a screen system, allowing for summer breezes, ample entertaining areas and restoring connections to nature. “A consistent — but not overwhelming — thread of blue follows throughout these ground level spaces: blue kitchen cabinets, blue custom rug and touches of blue walls,” note the architects.
Media Room Triples as Office and Guest Bedroom with Stylish Murphy Bed

An eclectic mix of furnishings and accessories juxtaposes against the traditional architecture of this Boston home. Teal barrel chairs flank the classic fireplace, and a trio of metallic gold tables are grouped together in the center of the room. Abstract art adds color to the space.
On either side of the fireplace, built-in shelves become the perfect home for a collection of ocean-inspired artwork, photos and a planter. The light colored wood matches that of the mantel and the sofas to create a unified look.
Throughout the house, a neutral color palette and clean lines in the furniture and fixtures help to create a simple, elegant design for the home, while elongated windows allow in plenty of natural light. In the living room, designers added sheer curtains in front of these windows so as to create a light, airy feel in the space when they are drawn.
A good night's sleep goes a long way to making you feel like a brand new person. Not only does rest rejuvenate and repair your body, it does the same for your mind. There's a reason you hear, "sleep on it," whenever you're trying to solve a problem. To ensure you get your best night's sleep, start by setting your thermostat around 67 degrees. You want your space to be cool, but not cold. And then, create a bedroom haven that sends you straight to your dreams by combining the comfiest bedding, soothing hues and soft, ambient lighting.
