Bring loads of natural light into an interior space with a skylight tube, as seen in this bright, white bathroom. The idea of cutting a hole in a roof may be intimidating, but this project can be completed in a few hours with midlevel DIY skills.
A green tile fireplace is highlighted by recessed lighting and a solar tube in the HGTV Dream Home 2010 cozy entryway. A granite ledge by the fire or a comfy pair of wingback chairs provide a place to warm up by the fire.
Most of the countertops in this kitchen are fantasy brown granite marble. The stone is durable like granite, with the consistency of marble, but doesn't stain as easily as marble does. The light fixtures seen here were created by a London artist; LED tubes snap into the various rods and clips.
