Designers Karen and Mina created this open, elegant living room space out of the previously cramped duplex. To maximize the seating potential in the space, the ladies brought in a sectional sofa, keeping the space cozy. Across the sectional is a unique cabinet that houses a television, providing a great space to relax and entertain. The neutral oriental rug helps provide definition to the living room space in this open concept first floor, while the rose covered ottomans provide extra seating and help to tie the design together.
The focal point of this hallway collection is the antique dresser and jewelry box that are displayed prominently in the center of the wall. To accent the rich tones of the dresser's dark wood, the light wood of the floor and the frames of the art collection play off of the highlights in the dresser. The traditional oriental rug, then, reflects the bold colors inside the jewelry box, tying the entire space together. A glass wall follows the stairs to the second story, allowing this collection to be appreciated from any vantage point.

Designer Rachel Oliver gave this traditional family room a lighter feel by painting the once 1980s-esque dark wood wall paneling a neutral color. Colorful furnishings, like the modern wall art, were brought in to accommodate the existing red Oriental area rug the homeowners wanted to keep in the space.
The details in this kitchen are what truly brings the space together. The homeowners wanted a unique renovation, but were concerned with maintaining the home's integrity, so designers combined a few unique, more modern touches with traditional features to create this stunning kitchen. Wallpaper is used throughout the space to add color and warmth while maintaining the traditional feel of the home. The oriental rug between the kitchen island and the sink is another classic touch for the home. Even the gold accented light fixtures bring in the charm that the homeowners love about their home. The homeowners were opposed to white cabinets, so designers installed a countertop that had green hues, which inspired the green countertops in the space.

Touches of red, burnt orange and brown warm up this lovely living room. To help a space look pulled together, place at least the front legs of furniture on the rug, as seen here with the large Oriental one.
