Blue cheese is certainly an acquired taste that not all your guests may love. Try these toppings to please all palates. Offer a pizza-style crowd-pleaser of mini pepperoni, fresh mozzarella balls, black olives and marinara sauce (left). Use up fresh produce with this flatbread that calls for ricotta, basil and butternut squash (middle). For even more fun, allow guests to create their own flatbreads by offering a variety of toppings at their disposal.
A floral-printed host chair sits at the head of this traditional dining room's table complementing the floral lamps and a circular chandelier above. The milky gray backsplash of the small bar area draws the eye into this room.
For a bathroom look that's as soothing as it is beautiful, these pastel tiles are a dream. Shades from pink to green are such a pretty pairing with the wood vanity; brass sconces bring in a touch of warmth.
Instead of traditional subway tile, TerraCotta Design Build chose an unexpected, slightly geometric backsplash for the kitchen. With its hexagonal shape, this tile adds serious visual interest to the sink.
Small Bedroom is Multifunctional as TV Room and Guest Room
A small, colorful third bedroom was created during the renovation of this midcentury modern home. A majority of the time it functions as a TV room. A sleeper sofa transforms it into a guest room, and a built-in shelving unit adds storage to the space.
In an effort to create a space that feels maximum open and easy, designers opted not to hang pendants over the island. Lighting comes instead from sconces and sightlines continue all the way out the windows and glass door.
The living room epitomizes the designers' signature, desert living look with rustic beams, a wrought-iron chandelier and clean, simple lines. Instead of the usual boxy seating arrangement, two curved sofas are a soft, graceful moment at the heart of the room.
Saturated color is the shining star in this beautiful living room. Teal blue lacquered walls are offset by pops of gold: the sunburst mirror, stunning leaf-covered chandelier and the armchairs' accent pillows.
