Creating a room that has sparkle and color, defines a Jewel Box. Swarotski pendants create sparkle as does the Maestro sink in white stew-light. The Eltis "Pleats" wallpaper adds dimension and a feel of lace. The Stachmo Sticks Jazz Glass in Red Hot Mamma From Artistic Tile makes a bold color statement.

A natural fiber rug grounds the space and adds an earthy element while adding softness underfoot. The desk is situated at an angle to take maximum advantage of the natural light from a large window.
Changing out light fixtures in small spaces can make an enormous difference in how they look, feel and function. The key to a swift, successful lighting swap is choosing fixtures which will fit with existing junction boxes. For situations in which junction boxes require relocation, it's best to hire an electrician; however, keep in mind this will create somewhat of a mess due to patching holes with drywall mud and creating dust from sanding. This three-bulb nickel and acrylic fixture features a linen drum shade which diffuses the light, allowing the wall color to read more clearly.
Tired of untangling holiday light strands year after year? Wrap them around cardboard like Kim Christensen of A Real-Life Housewife has done here. Cut cardboard to size (think shoe box tops) and store them inside one box for groan-free tree trimming.

Carefully light your fire pit using a long lighter. The gel fuel cans burn for about three hours; to put the flame out earlier, place something nonflammable over the glass box until the flame is snuffed out. Cans can be reused until the gel fuel is gone.
Prior to the renovation, the fireplace brick was a plain, drab color. Kitchen Cousins Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri painted the brick and the mantel in bright white for a stronger visual impact.

An oversized wall clock is made from reclaimed wood, while a five-piece modular sectional sofa makes for a comfy spot to relax.
To create a department store look, simply add a few large, unwrapped gifts around the Christmas tree. The juxtaposition of boxes with freestanding items, such as this tricycle, creates a nice mix. To bring holiday flair to your unwrapped items, stick with a simple bow tied around the top, or add a few strands of ribbon along the sides.
One of the most iconic styles of midcentury-modern lighting is the Nelson Bubble pendant. Made of vinyl and available in shapes ranging from spheres to lanterns and cigars, these collector's items can be grouped together for a one-of-a-kind look with a Nelson Triple Bubble Fixture Kit. Once the proper spacing is created, the cords are cut to size, and the kit is wired to the junction box.
In this transitional bathroom, custom built-in cabinetry includes wine storage next to the freestanding tub. A tiled box contains a modern fireplace feature, making this an easy spot to relax and unwind.

Art consultant Alex Ray selected a photograph of Antonio Canova's Neoclassical sculpture of Psyche and Cupid at the Louvre as the centerpiece of "An Ode to Innocence," the private courtyard at the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015.

Landscape architect Frank Eddy added floating peonies in the shallow pool to add to the romance of the setting.
A metal bed frame surrounds the white bed linens and decorative dark throw pillows in this modern bedroom. A silver, mirror accent wall catches the eye and reflects the light in the room. A white, tufted leather chair adds a gorgeous curved shape to balance the sharp corners in the design.

Hot pink letters personalize the wall above a beautiful white crib with pink details. The dresser and toy box match the crib for a fully girly design.
