A checkerboard tile floor sets the tone for this colorful master bathroom. The floor is highlighted with an accent of rustic wood at the center. Skylights bring in beautiful natural light. The legs of the vanities are made from bundles of rebar, adding an industrial touch to the warm space.

The wall and flooring feature a beige and cream swirled travertine tile that creates a unified presence, while the darker tub surround, checkerboard accent tile and chest of drawers give the room added warmth and dimension.

This traditional mudroom offers stylish storage for the entire family. Individual "lockers" are decorated by colorful kids' artwork, while open cubbies below offer convenient shoe storage. Traditional architectural details, like the transom above the doorway, add interest and a crisp, clean aesthetic with bright white paint. A checkerboard pattern on the hardwood floor is a lighthearted touch.
