Gray wood frames these two cabinet sections. Upper glass door cabinets feature shelf lighting for a bright display. A gray subway tile backsplash compliments the gray granite countertop. Lower cabinets provide additional storage and aid in lightening the gray trim and hardwood floors.
Contemporary, sleek and unobtrusive describe the vanity, countertop and mirror selections that Pure Design Interiors used for this bathroom renovation. The color white predominates in the room; however, touches of brown in the vanity and metal fixtures add dimension and cohesiveness to the overall design. And, check out the vertical mirror lights--fabulous finds, indeed!
Picnics aren't just for parks and other pastoral settings. Just because you live in an apartment doesn't mean you can't host a high-end picnic on a balcony or terrace. Take advantage of the light and green surroundings and echo those features in your tablescape. Here trend expert Nancy Fire sets the scene for a Cast Shadows-themed urban picnic at her home in New York City.
A pharmacy floor lamp with an oil-rubbed bronze finish and transitional style were placed by each sofa, to provide supplemental lighting for the room. The floor lamps free up floor space that would be required for side tables with table lamps.

For the outside of the house, designers used milled slats of cypress wood called Shou Sugi Ban, which have been charred, brushed and oiled. It's a low-maintenance material that also provides a crisp contrast with the home's light-colored interior.
Pay attention to ambient lighting to help you focus on the part of your puppy you want to highlight. For example, this sweetie pie's face is the focal point for the shot, but the photographer used the side lighting to keep her face in the foreground while letting the rest of her fade into the background.
A fixed window in the master bathroom offers a look at the side yard and lush greenery. An operable no-leak skylight with built-in rain sensor brings fresh air and natural light inside this all-white master bathroom with dramatic black design details.
New energy-efficient windows a bit bigger than before on each side of the bed and another by the seating area have crisp white roman shades that offer control over the level of natural light in the room.
A new wider double crank fully operable window behind the canopy bed floods the space with lots of natural light and allows fresh air inside. The window also acts as a faux "headboard" for the modern canopy bed.
