A decorative oval mirror, a cluster of pottery vases and a small urn grace the mantel over this marble fireplace. Add a dose of whimsy with the tiger-print ottoman and some elegance (and color) with a blue-and-white bowl, and you've got a beautiful living room.

Hollywood regency meets country club chic in this spacious living room. A glamorous five-tiered chandelier is the centerpiece of the room, while a palette of Robin's egg blue, teal and metallics play beneath.
Replacing the heavy brick mantel with a hand-carved washed wood mantel and ledge stone hearth creates a contemporary, cozy and inviting room. A quatrefoil window was added to create visual interest while bringing in another natural light source. A stylish bar is perfect for entertaining and the bar top repeats the ledge stone from the fireplace mantel creating visual continuity and connectivity. The lucite barstool backs keep it light and allow the eye to move easily throughout the space. A blue sectional and comfy club chairs are perfect for entertaining or snuggling.
Classic Old World style elements fill this living room: ornate mantel, exposed-beam ceiling, traditional area rug and arched doorways. The end result is anything but outdated thanks to a cheery pair of blue sofas and stylish pendant light.

This wonderful mudroom has all the friendly personality of a seaside cottage. Wood floors were replaced with more durable limestone (echoing country villages' cobblestone streets). New shiplap walls were painted a beautiful robin's egg blue to contrast the cabinets' dark navy lacquer.
The master bathroom is big on personality, if not on space. The concrete tile floor is meant to evoke the look of a folk art quilt. The vanity and mirror are pretty as a picture in robin's egg blue. And shiplap walls match the paneling used throughout the house.
After a top-to-bottom renovation, this transitional living room is now a proverbial jewel thanks to soft blue walls and matching chairs, a blue-and-green-spotted ottoman, built-in storage shelves with green backs, and a fireplace with a white mantel and blue glass tile surround.
