This hallway indention adds usable workspace to the home without cluttering the hall space. A thin white countertop can be used as a desk, or when combined with the framed, horizontal mirror, turned into a vanity area. Three glass candy jars add a touch of color from their contents, and a plastic black barstool creates seating.
Turn beadboard on its side for a whole new bathroom look, says Ili Hidalgo-Nilsson, architect and designer with Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta. The horizontal lines of the beadboard can make a small room appear wider than a traditional vertical design. You can also use mirrors in multiple spots, to increase the glamour and spacious feel of a bathroom.
Adding a simple stripe of bold -- such as orange -- paint is an easy way to turn a neutral space into one that pops with panache. Seen in the mirror's reflection, a striking painting echoes the color of the stripe, completing the colorful bathroom.

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 custom-designed full-length mirror and the sconces flanking it stand out in front of the horizontal striped wallpaper. Nicole Norris, ASID, NCIDQ, is responsible for the dressing room design in this North Carolina home.
The tiles in this handsome bathroom are black and white, but the fact that on one wall they're laid out in a subtle chevron stripe, on another wall in horizontal lines and a bold pattern for the floor keeps the overall look anything but ordinary.

Influences from architect Frank Lloyd Wright are seen in this powder room with the rhythmic play of the decorative vertical wood ladder detail, horizontal stacked bands of solid surface material and wood for the vanity. Additional warmth and interest were added with three stacked metal horizontal sconces. The vertical band of mirror visually expands the space, and the chrome faucet disappears into the mirror, creating a waterfall experience into the sculptural stone sink.
Crown molding and wainscoting in bright white lighten this transitional dining room, and add an elegant ambiance. A mirror hung horizontally visually expands the space. A large area rug ties together the dining table and assorted chairs.
