This dining space, designed by Emily Henderson of HGTV's Secrets from a Stylist features an English Country design scheme that gives the room an all-over quaint, decidedly proper feel. The gray and white wallpaper adds a decorative accent to the wooden drop-leaf table, which includes two black dining chairs at either end. A design tip from Emily: "When it comes to designing your own home, don't over think it. Go out and take pictures. Visualize things, have fun, play around!"

This woodsy and witty bathroom from Vermilion Design Interiors took its cue from a fox who designer Bill Cook says decorated this carriage house bath with some of his favorite things. Cook adds that, "while our main space of the apartment was inspired by a country English gentleman’s den, we chose to give the bathroom more of a sense of whimsy and humor. We even had a bar set up, because we felt that this Fox was a bit of a playboy."
