Designer Leanne Ford keeps this country kitchen feeling sophisticated with a striking dark gray and white color palette, accented by stainless steel lights and appliances, as seen on HGTV's Restored by the Fords.
Layering rugs means you don't have to get one giant one and you can mix and match styles. In this large living room, a colorblock rug fills up most of the floor space; an animal skin rug brings a rustic touch underneath a lounge chair.
Add a pop of coordinated color with hand-dipped flatware. Simply dip a set of flatware in paint and let dry. Finish with a clear topcoat. The colorblock look gives a modern twist to a traditional place setting. Be sure to handwash only.
