Known for her super luxe, traditional spaces, design diva Candice Olson focused on function as well as form when designing this long galley-style kitchen for a busy family of four. She chose white wall cabinets to keep the space bright but decided on a dark stain for the island to break things up. Gray, gold and black linoleum floor tiles add a playful touch and echo the colors found in the glass tile backsplash.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, designer Sarah Richardson transformed this once cramped, dated bathroom into a large, relaxing space reminiscent of a coastal beach house. She borrowed three feet of space from an extra bedroom to make room for a weathered oak vanity, freestanding volcanic limestone tub and walk-in shower with body jets and a rain shower head. Light blue wall paint and crisp white beadboard paneling add beautiful yet understated coastal character and are a fresh contrast to the dark blue marble floor tile.
When guests enter this mountain retreat in Beaver Creek, Colo., they're greeted by a rustic rock wall, stone tile flooring and an oversized black-and-white photo. A curvy entry table with a bold orange top adds a splash of color to the space, while a leather chair reflects the rustic style of the space.
From the cubic pattern on the floor to the sharp line of the chair rail, this Brooklyn bathroom is a study in crisp geometry. The clean black-and-white color palette is uninterrupted, and traditional elements like the footed, furniture-style vanity and subway tile walls keep the area grounded.
This country kitchen is kept functional yet airy with floating shelves and light gray crackled subway tiles. A rustic elegance is also added by the white cabinets with black honed granite. A large deep sink and glass door cabinets are just a few of the simple and lovely details in this kitchen.
This home's open floor plan allows for easy transition between the kitchen, dining and living rooms. A neutral and gray color palette keeps the look of the spaces light and bright, as seen in the ivory walls, gray cabinets and white tile backsplash. Black leather tufted dining chairs and metallic candlesticks add chic finishing touches.
This crisp and contemporary master bath features fun details that tie its design to its farmhouse architecture and rural setting. Cornflower blue trim pops against the all-white palette, while a freestanding soaker tub is a modern take on the traditional farmhouse bathtub. A walk-in shower features a frameless glass door and subway tile, and a floating vanity helps keep the space open and uncluttered.
A long kitchen island with a stunning stone waterfall countertop is the focal point in this dark-toned kitchen. A bold blue pantry door visually divides the open floor plan without sacrificing space. Modern white barstools along the island create a casual dining area, while a gray tile backsplash creates depth in this black kitchen.
This inviting, transitional kitchen stuns with a marble top island, muted gray cabinets with black hardware and mosaic tile backsplash at the range hood. Two modern pendant lights with linen shades hover above four wicker bar chairs that provide seating for guests in the kitchen. Rich hardwood flooring provides a needed contrast in the all-white space.
An open double rainfall shower creates a spa-like environment in this crisp, white master bathroom. Tiled half-walls are topped with glass to create a divider from the rest of the bathroom, while still maintaining the light, open feel. A shallow nook between the two showerheads provides much-needed storage, while on the opposite side, a large soaker bathtub is the perfect spot to relax.
This kitchen features white cabinets paired with black countertops and a gray tile backsplash. Cane top wood stools are arranged at the peninsula to provide a spot for casual dining, while blue dishes are placed throughout the kitchen to accent the similarly-hued window frame. Hardwood floors complete the look of the space.
In the master bathroom of HGTV Dream Home 2014, a white acrylic tub overlooks the pine forest just outside, while a separate shower is lined in porcelain tile designed to look like weathered barn wood. A Roman shade, constructed of the same fabric used for pillows and window treatments in the master bedroom, can be drawn should privacy be required.
A set of chairs, one black and one white, are seated at the island creating space to cook and work in this country kitchen. An arched opening in the brick accent wall frames the stove area and neutral tile backsplash. Matte blue cabinetry adds soft color to the neutral palette, and natural wood details finish the country design.
Gray granite countertops complement the gray and black tile backsplash in this traditional kitchen. Both bring some texture to the crisp white cabinetry. The surface of the copper range hood reflects light in the well-lit space while under cabinet lighting keeps the countertops bright. The double oven is perfect for any cook.
A large white sectional and a round coffee table contribute to the light, bright look of this main living space. The fireplace is a major focal point by using stripes of black cement tiles mixed with wood, echoing the color of the oiled oak floors creating a cohesive look throughout the space.
A neutral and black pointed stripe wallpaper creates a nice contrast to the soft neutral tones of the connected bedroom. A thick white door frame and small marble tile floor cut off at the room transition. Textured carpet softens the floor of the bedroom leading to the bright yellow armchair that catches the eye in this design.
A color palette of white, espresso and red is carried through this home's hallway and bathroom and into a bedroom, creating a unified design style.

A built-in bookshelf sits just outside an adjacent bathroom that boasts a tile shower with glass doors.
