This homeowner wanted a closet that was an organized, relaxing space, so designers made sure to include plenty of space to hang clothes. Then, they added two full length mirrors, a comfortable chair. Finally, white, semi-sheer curtains help diffuse the light that comes into the space and helps it feel light, airy and relaxing.
In the master bedroom, a large, sliding glass door that leads onto the home's private balcony lets in plenty of natural light that reflects off the room's white walls. Windows behind each of the nightstands allow in extra light, or can be covered by the Ratan shades, adding warmth to the space. Mirrored doors create a brighter space, while soft, neutral bed linens make the space more inviting. The artwork hanging above the bed ties the space together and adds a splash of personality.
Wood beams create a deep coffered ceiling that mirrors the low height of the fixtures in the living room. Bulb pendant lights hang over the living room adding a sheen to the leather finish of the orange armchairs and brown sectional. A slate fireplace surround adds a cool tone accent perfect for contrasting the warm wood of the design.
The sitting area clearly demonstrates the color story for the porch: white and neutral base pieces with bright accents. The sectional sofa, wood coffee table and baroque wall mirror bring unexpected indoor sophistication to outdoor living. The pink, red and purple throw pillows pop against the stark white sofa. A geometric light fixture hangs above to provide lighting.
Turquoise birds and light, fluffy clouds decorate the ceiling of this charming girl's bedroom. The rich turquoise-colored area rug pulls the color of the birds into the room.

Soft gray walls with white molding create a perfect color scheme to compliment the marble flooring of this bright, transitional bathroom. The large wood vanity base and matching mirror frame add a warmth to the design. Matching pendant lights hang over the his and hers sinks built into the white countertop.
The spacious display cabinets in this Los Angeles clothing store are made of glass, allowing for plenty of storage, and visibility as well as accessibility of product.

Inside this spacious, opulent nursery, heavy lavender draperies partially cover a pair of glass doors and hang on the wall behind an ornate crib with gold accents.

A large mounted mirror provides a peak into the bathing section of this glamorous, spacious master bathroom suite.

A grand curved chandelier is the centerpiece of this ultra-contemporary space where dressing room meets bathroom. The light fixture hangs over a modern gray piece that's a dresser on one side and a vanity sink on the other. Sliding mirrored doors open to reveal a spacious walk-in closet.
A hand-carved solid birch mirror in a black finish hangs above an ebony hand-rubbed buffet table, drawing the eye up to visually heighten this neutral dining room.

As a designer, Tanika knows the value of a good entryway, both as a functional part of daily living and as a design feature, setting the tone for everything to come. She makes excellent use of her space on both fronts with a dark-stained wooden bench adorned with colorful pillows in dazzling geometric patterns. Complemented by the modern, artistic mirror hanging above, the bench is the perfect place to sit while putting on shoes or to pause for a moment after a long day, with an underside that doubles as storage for shoes.
Designer Amy Elbaum carefully selected accent furnishings for this living room renovation with an eye on simple lines and quiet sophistication.

The touch of blue in the glass lamps is another graceful expression here.
A hand-painted black and white floor adds an unexpected, edgy feel to contrast the elegant, detailed gold molding on the ceiling.

A central structure composed of natural wood divides this rustic-yet-luxurious master retreat, creating storage as well as wall space to accommodate a dual vanity and, on the other side, a bed.

An icy blue four-drawer dresser is used to display a small purple floral bouquet inside a brown pot, a stuffed monkey and a handful of Dr. Seuss books, while above hangs a large white mirror in which you can see the reflection of a blue and purple plaid valance. The color schemes compliment the purple hue of the room walls.
This mirrored nightstand echoes the opulent finishes used throughout this bedroom designed by Erinn Valencich. Note her clever lighting trick: "I decided to hang pendant lights over each nightstand instead of using standard lamps," she says. This leaves the table surface free for other items. Storage is also available inside the table behind the touch-latch doors.
A silver, white and cream color palette lends a glamorous yet soothing look to the hall bathroom of HGTV Green Home 2011, which features quartz countertops and a silver-leafed mirror.
