This loft space from designer Kirsten Holmstedt serves a multi-functional purpose as both a workspace and lounge. A masculine color palette paired with furniture that is robust enough for everyday use is modern and fresh. The sideboard buffet has extra storage to keep away clutter while also storing office equipment. Pouf ottomans were incorporated to create a place for sitting and lounging while catching up on sports. The addition of can lights throughout the room and an updated light fixture gives the space a fresh modern feel and acts as a cool focal point when coming upstairs.
This crisp, bright kitchen features flat-front white cabinets, a light gray countertop and a backsplash designed from marble mosaic hexagon tiles. A large kitchen island with a black and gray granite countertop provides ample room for storage, as well as white stools for casual dining. A neutral accent wall adds a warm touch.
This spacious outdoor patio features a wood paneled overhang, providing a bit of shade during the day and lighting at night. Concrete steps and gravel landscaping complete the look of the area, while floor-to-ceiling glass walls and windows allow for a peek at the interior spaces, including the living and dining rooms.
Built in 1822, this vintage Victorian evokes the romance of a bygone era with its high ceilings, original wide-plank floors, curved banisters and classic light fixtures. Despite its antique appeal, the home is appointed with a new chef's kitchen with a large island. Even rarer in a historic home such as this: a two-car garage and a great room with a vaulted ceiling.

The first thing guests see when they walk through the front door? Soaring ceilings, recessed lighting and a metal-and-wood staircase that leads to the home's second level. Because the condo has such an open floor plan, the designers used large area rugs to visually give the owners a distinct "dining room" and "sitting area."
You would never know that this fabulous walk-in closet was created from an outdoor storage room. An exterior door and window were closed and removed to allow space for custom built-in shelving, providing ample room for clothing, shoes and jewelry. The light from the sparkling hanging fixture bounces off a shimmery petal pink ceiling, while glass shoe shelves mounted in front of pink damask wallpaper provide a beautiful focal point. The custom-designed full-length mirror and the sconces flanking it stand out in front of the horizontal striped wallpaper.

To bring the Moroccan inspired decor to the couple's four seasons porch, designers blended rich fabrics and textures. The ceilings are covered in a rich, stained wood that complements the other furniture in the space. Thick cushions add a luxurious, Moroccan feel to the space, while bold, blue accent pillows bring warmth into the space. In the rear of the room, a small, distressed hookah bar adds character and charm to the design while complementing the blue and cream patterned light fixture hanging from the ceiling. To complete the design, light, airy curtains adorn the windows tying the space together.
An impressive limestone stove hood mimics the gothic style of the fireplace mantel and has a strong presence in this transitional kitchen. Natural light entering from both sides of the room prevent the stonework from weighing down the space. A dining area near the cooktop provides front-row seating for interested on-lookers during meal prep.
Designer Jessica Murphy of Her Cave Atlanta completely renovated the dated fixtures and dark tones in this bathroom, creating a light, airy space with updated features, colors and tiles. Ceramic tile made to look like wood works together with the standalone tub and walls painted in Sherwin-Williams Fleur de Sel to create a contemporary modern look. The centerpiece splurge is the chic Kardiel standalone tub, which Murphy says gives the room a luxury feel.
Cooking is one of the homeowners' favorite shared hobbies, so when they decided to renovate, the kitchen became a priority. Walls were torn down to open up the space to the dining room and living room. Soapstone and marble grace the countertops, two-toned custom cabinetry is installed and Urban Electric pendant lights hang over the expansive island, lending both illumination and style to space.
Homeowner Chad Alford had always wanted to live in a New York City loft, so his partner Tomas Frenes designed their townhome in Atlanta's Cabbagetown neighborhood to look like urban buildings. Custom sliding doors with smoked glass conceal the lower level office and guest room and upper level master bedroom and are designed to look like industrial windows, while exposed ductwork, a modern light fixture and spiral staircase add to the urban feel.
Combining two or more spaces can create a sense of flow that makes each individual room seem larger. Case in point: A tight galley kitchen that got a new lease on life thanks to a clever reconfiguration. The architect recaps the project: “Knocking out the wall of an attached storage unit transformed the dark and cramped kitchen into a clean and light-filled space complete with a dining room and garden view. A galley layout makes efficient use of the small kitchen and allows for plenty of worktop space. The kitchen walkway leads the eye to the dining room — which has the same width as the kitchen — and the garden end of the space.”
Sleek and warm, this midcentury modern eat-in kitchen exemplifies how form and function can meet beautifully. Walnut floors and cabinets enhance the room's uncluttered look and play off the light coming in from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The kitchen island is a perfect spot for a quick breakfast, while the dining table seats six for family dinner or entertaining.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, two cramped and dated rooms were transformed into a gorgeous open plan kitchen, dining and living area. A functional kitchen island replaced an unnecessary dividing wall and a crumbling brick fireplace was repaired and painted a pretty neutral hue. An abundance of gorgeous natural light now highlights the charming, vintage cottage-style decor.
Designers wanted the master bathroom to continue the light, sunny design of the master bedroom into the bathroom space, so they continued white walls into the space to reflect the warm, Arizona sunshine let in by high rise windows that keep the space bright, but private. On the floors, designers used white tiles to create a chevron pattern that adds some dimension to the space, while a marble accent wall adds texture and contrast. Designers finished off the space with gold fixtures and wood accents to highlight the room's warmth.
Upon entering the apartment one is welcomed into an open space housing the living room, dining area and a feature bar wall. This bar wall was custom-designed to add more storage to the apartment and cater to the client's love of hosting and entertaining guests. White upper cabinets contrast the wood finish on the lower cabinets, creating an aesthetic accent. LED accent lighting highlights one of the homeowner's favorite paintings.
Pastel details contrast with the wood elements in this master bedroom remodel. The printed, yellow wallpaper creates an accent wall in this cottage-style bedroom, acting as a cheerful backdrop for the pink and gray aspects of the room. Crisp, neutral bedding along with the clean lines of the neutral headboard anchor the bedroom's largest furniture piece and mirrors the neutral fireplace. A splash of bold color is added to the decor with the use of pink throw pillows, a nightstand and printed ottoman. A wooden table and mantel act as a base for decorative pieces and soft, pastels colors in the chair and nightstand lamp elaborate on the room's pastel ambiance. A distinct, natural lighting fixture adds a rustic element to the room.
This residential kitchen boasts commercial flair. Functionally, the room was laid out to maximize prep space for cooking; visually, the sense of immense space was heightened by using three different types of engineered stone for the backsplash, the countertop and the island topper. The neutral background is broken with a dash of bright orange in the light fixtures — an easily changeable feature when you're in the mood for a different color. This impressive kitchen with was designed by Poggenpohl team Tedd McKee and Rosemary Porto in collaboration with architecture firm CUBE 3 Studio.
