To create a warm, inviting great room, designers opened the space into other rooms in the home, making it easily accessible from several points of entry. Then, designers added a variety of textures in a warm color palette to create the space's comfortable, yet chic, appeal. To give the space a touch of glamor, bronzite metallic tiles were installed around the fireplace to give the appearance of metal cladding without adding the cost, putting the finishing touches on the elegant, contemporary design.

This bold bedroom embodies style and grace. The black-and-white contrast is timeless, and the design reminiscent of Hollywood glamor.

Designer Ana Donohue defines this contemporary living room as "Bermuda in the city," as it suggests a subdued glamor with its soft color palette and minimalist approach.

The mirror and the opaque glass chandelier add yet another modern touch.
