As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, the new kitchen is located where the old, small living room previously was. The walls on the first floor have been removed, creating an open modern floor plan with views to both the living room and dining area. Updated kitchen cabinetry, new appliances, a decorative tile backsplash and the elongated central island make the new kitchen the center of life on the first floor. Finally, new window treatments, colorful pillows and updated recessed and pendant lighting give a modern and fun vibe throughout.

The designer added charm, warmth and modern farmhouse details to this cottage bathroom. The Turkish towels are a change from the standard towel, creating a design element from something functional. The main event in this room, however, is the vibrant painting of a steer, which is at once austere and fun.
