This custom, lighted panel behind the bed brings together an eye-catching light fixture, captivating artwork and modern sophistication with a bit of edge to create a dramatic focal point for the Master Bedroom. This designer created the pattern for the laser-cut wood panel, slightly evocative of an Asian floral motif, which was inspired by the client’s cultural heritage.
A wood door with striped glass panels beautifully matches the light hardwood and molding in the foyer. A dark gray accent wall adds depth to the bright design. A wall cut out with open storage boxes is fixed next to a large built in cabinet with decorative wood finish accents.
This glamorous master bath has gold-toned, tiled porcelain walls and beautiful artwork that glows softly from the light of the dramatic light fixture. The non-traditional artwork serves as a striking focal point for the master bath -- believe it or not, this is simply an assembly of cheap, framed bowls, making a plain centerpiece into high-end art!
This glamorous spa-like master bathroom provides a peaceful environment in which to begin or end the day. Unique panels behind the soaking tub plus the circular motif echoed in the wall around the floating vanity add a palatial feel to the space. The ornate glass and crystal chandelier is the crowning touch of elegance.
This master bathroom vanity floats on a backdrop of shimmering gold wall covering, and glows from behind through the use of concealed LED lighting. The resulting aesthetic is a fresh take on a glamorously modern bath. Three-dimensional wall panels are simply inexpensive MDF panels that were custom routed and then painted. They provide a graphic quality to the space.
Warm tones from the wood cabinets and polished tile floors soften this modern room, creating a comfortable cooking space. The mottled glass-front cabinets bring a lightness to the space without fully revealing the dish ware -- and possible disorganization -- that lies behind.

The three-dimensional texture of the wood-clad accent wall -- which looks almost wavy -- brings a unique and sophisticated feel to this living room. An ornate chandelier is made from multiple glass panels shaped like leaves, adding a natural softness. The tile fireplace surround is subtle but detailed and rich.
In this formal, contemporary living room, the texture of the wood-clad fireplace and massive chandelier work together for a dramatic play of light and shadow. Chairs paired on either side of the modern, glass coffee tables bring a pleasing imbalance and added nuance to the space. The gorgeous fireplace is a highlight of the room.
A lowered ceiling and soffit details created a better sense of scale and intimacy in this light and airy kitchen and breakfast nook. The open floor plan provides for the kitchen, dining room and living room to flow seamlessly into one another. Warm brown and beige tones bring a comfort to the rooms.
Fresh cut sunflowers, wood paneling and a primitive dough bowl add country charm to this neutral sitting area. Upholstered ottomans with an hourglass shape offer stylish seating in front of a simple fireplace.
This lime green door with glass panels opens into a beautiful, open modern great room. Sleek hardwood flooring and white walls blend throughout the space. A gray room divider with cut-out shelves holds the mounted TV facing a gray sectional. A funky chandelier with a petal design hangs in the entryway providing decoration as well as light.
The white walls and hardwood floor in this hallway are decorated with a contemporary art display. A thin gold table covers a large crystal formation and supports a circular flower vase. Pink, orange, purple and neutral diamond cut-outs in direction changing lines are mounted in glass cases next to a yellow panel with black words and numbers.
In the bathroom, designers used the modern, Asian motif from the rest of the home to bring in unique features that give this space a spa like feel. The window above the large soaking tub gives the space plenty of natural light, while the bamboo wood panel helps to create some privacy between the spa space and the outdoors. To create privacy inside the home, panels of frosted glass create a space in the bathroom that is separate from the rest of the room's spaces; however, by using panels of glass rather than glass sheets, designers were able to keep the bath area from feeling cut off and separate-keeping the room's design flow continuous-while still giving this space an amount of privacy.
Add a special treatment halfway up the wall, to cut your costs. Tile or wood paneling, which can be cheaper, gives any bathroom a certain finished style. Designer Stephanie A. Bruntz of Studio B Design used tile in this National Kitchen + Bath Association winning bathroom, but also suggests using beadboard. If you opt for beadboard, she suggests adding chair rail around the room and a standalone backsplash above the vanity. “It would be faster to install and less expensive on the material purchase,” says Bruntz, who lives in Nebraska.
A rustic wood hutch provides display space for white collectibles, while the top of the weathered console dons fresh-cut flowers. Beadboard paneling along the wall creates a cozy, country feel to the space.
