When square footage is scarce, filling yours with heavy, dark furniture is a surefire way to instantly make your space feel crammed. Instead, look to glass and acrylic furniture that makes little-to-no footprint, and lets your gorgeous floors or striking rug show through.
A lot of things have changed in the over twenty years we've lived in this home, but not the shade of periwinkle paint in the living room. One of the challenges of the home is the lack of an entryway: the front door opens directly into the living room, a far from perfect design feature partly lessened by a wide front porch that acts as a buffer.

"I love a simply wrapped gift with a sprig of greenery which adds a personal touch," says Cramer.

In this imaginative nursery, a custom mural inspired by Maurice Sendak's children's book, Where the Wild Things Are, makes a magical setting. Bright yellow curtains are a fun pairing, adding warmth and energy to the room's cool palette.
A built-in desk serves as this kitchen's command center for keeping the family organized. The new counter and backsplash were added during a remodel that utilized the kitchen's existing cabinetry. Using a blue and green palette adds a beckoning flow into the adjacent dining room.
