It may be by far the most common kitchen island shape, but the rectangle isn’t your only option. Angled and even curved designs can work better in your space, like this stunning oval designed by Anthony Baratta. The oblong island, which mirrors the shape of the recessed ceiling, is a custom design built in English sycamore wood, with a Pyrolave countertop in a custom lime color and reverse-painted glass door panels.
This lovely but rustic bathroom, featured on the HGTV seriesRun My Makeover, presents an old-world sensibility with its beadboard vanity cabinet, frosted glass panes and the shape and style of the vanity mirror. The light taupe and cream color scheme helps reinforce the bathroom's soft and relaxing feel.
